    Harrison get All-Pro honor six months later

    Steelers linebacker James Harrison picked up an honor for his play in 2009 six months later than usual as he was named second-team All-Pro after a re-vote following Houston linebacker Brian Cushing's suspension for use of performance enhancing drugs.

    Chicago's Lance Briggs also picked up enough votes to join both Harrison and the Steelers' LaMarr Woodley on the second team.

    The Pro Football Hall of Fame has announced who will present for this year's class.

    Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau will be presented by his brother Bob.

    Longtime NFL coach Joe Bugel will present for Russ Grimm.

    Steelers' Harrison earns another honor
    Thursday, May 13, 2010
    Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    More than four months after the 2009 season ended, Steelers linebacker James Harrison earned another honor.

    Harrison joined teammate LaMarr Woodley on the Associated Press All-Pro second team as a result of an unprecedented revote conducted this week.

    The AP called for a revote of the 50 media members on its panel after the NFL suspended linebacker Brian Cushing of the Houston Texans for the first four games of the season for testing positive for a performance-enhancing drug in 2009. Cushing won the NFL defensive player of the year award in the original AP vote in a landslide, and earned enough votes to be placed on the All-Pro second team.

    Ballots were recast for the rookie of the year award and for the outside linebackers on the All-Pro team. Cushing remained the winner of the rookie award in a much closer vote, but lost his spot on the All-Pro team.

    In the new count, Harrison and Lance Briggs of the Chicago Bears tied for fourth behind Woodley and all three are on the All-Pro second team.

    Harrison was first-team All-Pro in 2008 when he won the NFL defensive player of the year award. He also has made the past three Pro Bowls.

    See what happens when you cheat ? I hate cheaters. I wonder what condition Cush will be in without the use of juice ? Probably like the Patriots, the lack of filming and all of a sudden, no more SB wins. I'm sure Bellicheat and Cush will figure another way to cheat. Once a cheater always a cheater.
