Well, that didn't take long.
Steelers teammate and fellow linebacker LaMarr Woodley agreed.
"Thoughts on 'the steelers rule'??? lol im sorry that im not sorry we hit 2 hard," Woodley tweeted.
Pittsburgh has been the poster child for increased defensive penalties and fines over the past year. The Steelers continue to play a hard-hitting brand of football, while the NFL is dramatically shifting to offense and high scoring. This scenario has presented an ongoing clash between the league and its most successful franchise.
Harrison became the NFL's biggest target last season. He paid a league-high $100,000 in fines last year.
Many teammates stood up for Harrison, including Pro Bowl safety Troy Polamalu, receiver Hines Ward and safety Ryan Clark. The NFL also cringed in February as the Steelers used the league's biggest platform during Super Bowl week to speak out against recent changes.
