    I figured I would start a little thread in remembrance of the best times with Al.

    Gonna miss him, awesome memories and a class act. I honestly feel like he helped the defense turn it around and become dominant. Hopefully he does really well and whoever lands him will be luck.

    A classy touch, SC!!! I'm glad you thought of that!!! We should pay tribute to one of the greatest Packers of our time. Although he will no longer be wearing a Packer uniform, I will always think of him as a Packer. The injury wasn't his fault, to me when I think Al Harris, I will think of some great Packer moments. Surely he will do some other team some good, just hope it's not anyone in our division. I wish him nothing but the best in life all around. I guess I have to say I will remain a Harris fan, no matter what team he goes to. I won't be a fan of that team, just a fan of Harris.

    Maybe after all is said and done he will come back to the Packers to work on the coaching/ training staff. I think he has a lot left to give, just maybe not on the football field. He would make a great role model and mentor. Think of the wealth of knowledge he can offer some of these young guys. I'd love for him to remain in the organization.

    LOLing @ 1:48 ... Harris looked more like the receiver rather than defender there. He burned that guy, cant believe the QB even threw to that side of the field on that play. Funny stuff.

    EDIT: I'm glad they ended the video with that hit by Bigby, such an epic hit in a heartbreaking game. I was seriously devastated driving home from my parents house that night. Overtime INT by Favre basically sums up his career. Haha I'm kidding of course..... but not really :p

    But great idea for a thread! I've watched the videos,..all were great, but loved him trying to do the weather!

    Harris was always one of those awesome players who gave his heart and soul to The Pack.. I sure have missed him and wish him the best whatever team is lucky enough to pick up someone so talented.. He will always be a Packer, no matter what uniform he wears.
