    Harris blames 'dirty' Packers for leg injury

    September 11, 2006

    BY BRAD BIGGS Staff Reporter




    GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Charles Tillman's interception of Brett Favre in the fourth quarter came with a price to the Bears.

    Defensive tackle Tommie Harris was limping in the locker room afterward with an undisclosed right leg injury, and he's blaming it on unethical play by Green Bay right tackle Mark Tauscher.

    Harris was cut down from behind after the interception, which happened more than 20 yards downfield, and called Tauscher's hit unnecessary.

    ''You know it was cheap,'' Harris said. ''Everybody saw it was cheap. You saw that junk. That's the only way they can block me.''

    Harris went to the Pro Bowl for the first time last season in his second year, and after the game, Favre paid him one of the top compliments a tackle can get.

    ''Tommie Harris is close to a Warren Sapp,'' Favre said.

    Harris re-entered the game and is not believed to be injured seriously but will be re-evaluated today.

    ''I'm just hurt,'' he said. ''I'm not telling you what it is.''

    The Packers have introduced more cut blocking into their scheme this season under new coordinator Jeff Jagodzinski, who was the offensive line coach last season in Atlanta and learned from the master of the cut block, Alex Gibbs. But this cut didn't happen on an offensive play; the ball was gone, and Harris and Tauscher were distant onlookers.

    ''It was during the interception,'' Harris said. ''I didn't even see it. I was down on the ground.

    ''What am I going to say to him? He looked at me like, 'Sorry.' And then I was like, 'Whatever, get out of my face.' Yeah, he's known for being dirty, and I'm fed up with it. I'm so tired every day of coming in here and getting cut, left and right. These guys are freaking dirty.''

    Harris said the NFL turns a blind eye to cut blocking because it promotes offense.

    ''The league doesn't care,'' he said. ''Everything is predicated on the offense. Don't touch this dude late, don't go at his ankles. Do I have to get my knee torn before they make a high/low rule for Tommie Harris?

    ''Roy Williams pulled [Terrell Owens down] from behind; now he has a Roy Williams [horse collar] rule. Does it have to take someone to get injured in order to get a rule?''

    dirtbags. The Packer tradition continues. Is Forrest Gregg charging a consulting fee to Chubsy McCarthy?

    I think Midi-Mullet Tauscher will get some payback in Chi-town.

    Have a great day Packer fans.
