    Great DB but will always be remembered for the "We want the ball and we're gonna score" pick 6. Best of luck Al!

    Great career but I still find it hard to shake the memories of Plaxico owning him 1 on 1 in the Championship game. I still can't understand why in the hell they didn't give him some help that night.

    I never will get over that NFC championship. Reguardless he will be headed for the packers HOF. Deservingly so. Congrats on a great career

    Three things I hate about that video. Chris Collingsturd is one of the announcers. And you see Sharper And Longwell, who both bolted to the Vikings.

    Now Al Harris, loved ya buddy. Really wish that injury never happened. At least we gave you a Superbowl ring anyways.

    "We want the ball and we're gonna score." Those words are now immortalized, thanks to Al Harris. One of my favorite Packers of this generation. I've been expecting this news but dreading it all the same. Best of luck to you and I wish you all the joys this world has to offer in your retirement.

    Anyone know if he is going to get to be retired as a Packer? It would be awesome if they had some kind of ceremony, tribute to him. He deserves it more than some other former Packer, He Who Shall Not Be Named.

    Al Harris = interception to clinch NFC championship. a real classy guy. Maybe the Packers could use a little help on the D coaching staff. Hmmmmmm

    Bert Lorenzo Farve coulda learned A LOT ABOUT CLASS from my brother Al
    Again, one could be in the movie Courageous, and the other in Old School 2... while Old School is hilarious, COurageous is a movie one can be proud of as a man. Same about Mister Harris

    Somehow it just seems that the caliber of the NFL has diminished at least a little bit.

    Harris' locker room interviews were always funny. His intuitive answers usually had some kind of hidden humor that left me smiling.:)

    I wish he could have played in the Superbowl. It showed again how classy the Organization is that they gave him a Ring. Well deserved.

    "We want the ball and we're gonna score" is one of the biggest highlight of the last decade.
