There was a time when this was called great defense. Does anyone else remember the NFL when a defender's job was to separate a player from the ball?
Regardless, Mohamed Massaquoi and Josh Cribbs were both crushed by Harrison, resulting in concussions for both players and a hefty fine for Harrison.
Harrison's hits would inspire a day of NFL infamy, later dubbed "Bloody Sunday," when four bone-crushing hits caused four concussions across the league. Harrison has become a scapegoat for the new, "safe" world of the NFL.
Harrison was the first to receive a hefty fine, and the first to be suspended for a helmet-to-helmet hit.
Personally, think the NFL has unfairly targeted Harrison. He is listed generously at six feet even, and is nothing but head and shoulders. When receivers try to duck him, as Massaquoi did on this play, they end up with a face full of helmet.
If you look at the picture, you can tell Harrison's head is no more than four feet off the ground. If Massaquoi is standing upright, it is a clean shoulder-to-gut tackle for Harrison. With his build, power and aggressive style of play, this may be only the first suspension for Harrison.
