In his role as an NBC analyst, Rodney Harrison is the go-to voice for perspective on all things Patriots.
At halftime of Sunday night’s game, Harrison found common ground with a Patriots opponent when the issue of protecting the quarterback in the NFL came up.
Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis was incensed about a two roughing the passer penalties in the first half called against Baltimore. Harrison agreed.
“Tom Brady, if you’re listening,” Harrison started. “Take off the skirt and put on some slacks. Toughen up.”
It’s not like Brady threw the flag, so we can only assume that Harrison took issue with Brady motioning to the official nearby for the call after a play where Terrell Suggs wound up getting penalized.
Either way, the dig at Brady is proof that Harrison won’t always go easy on his former teammates. At least not the ones that play offense.
