Mr. James "Silverback" Harrison, Steeler linebacker extraordinaire graces the cover of this week's SI, the second time he has had such an honor in just a few months. But looking at the two covers side-by-side is pretty amusing. I suppose it's now OK for the magazine that used him as the Big Hit Poster Child to glowingly describe him as "fearsome" since all that concussion hysteria has died down and everyone wants players to stay in the game with damaged knee ligaments. Oh, how the tides have turned in a couple weeks, dear worried-about-players'-safety crowd. You had a nice 15 minutes, though.
