    According to the Herald reporter Tomase, he said that Rodney has started running.

    Four months before they start playing football for real and Rodney is now running.:rocker:

    This can't be bad news. Although cutting and agility is usually the bigger problem vs. straight line speed.

    Usually about 1-2 months from "running" to "cutting"

    This is good news. And, yes there is a differece between running in a straight line and cutting, stopping and starting, breaking quickly.

    However I prefer to have this good news right now. You and huskeralk can see the glass half empty if you want.;)

    I was just playing the Panthers game in Week 2.

    Man, the defense just has such a different feel to it when Rodney's in there.

    Hahahahahaha, I don't see the glass half empty, I'm glad that Rodney is making progress and hope that he is available for the first game of the season. I simply don't think he's the best SS in the league anymore like you do.

    Rodney! Rodney! Rodney!

    (couldn't help myself)

    I wonder whether Rodney was actually a better player during his time in San Diego than he has been with the Patriots. The guy is one of the best I've ever had the priviledge to watch. Of the hometeam players in my life, he's on a level with Laurence Taylor (grew up NYG fan), just in terms of being a joy to watch.

    Where do you think he ranks, given 100% healthy? Top 3? Top 5?

    In history or currently in the NFL?

    In history he's once-a-decade, IMHO

    Currently? I wouldn't trade him for anybody else (would you?!?), but I do respect Polamalu and Dawkins.

    Never said that he is the best SS in the league. He is the best SS that we have. And, even at 90%, I rather have him than any other safety in a big game.

    I would like to hear who exactly are these other strong safeties in the league for whom you would trade Rodney Harrison.

    ...and if you think anyone in that locker room would agree with you.

    i would trade Harrison for Ed Reed..younger..ball hawk..good against run and he can play SS and FS.

    my favorite safeties in nfl are(no order)
    Ed Reed
    Rodney Harrison
    Brian Dawkins
    Sean Taylor
    Gibril Wilson

    hope his cartilage is ok

    i wonder if the knee is still numb, or is he starting to 5regain feeling? ussually with that kind og injury a nerve gets severed. i regrows, but takes about 20-24 months to do so.
    surely he and his docs know what they're doing. hopefully he isn't overstressing the knee by running on it now.

    doctors said 10-12 months usually to get back but hes older. McGahee came back well but he was a lot younger

    best, shmest

    i don't care if he's available for game 1. i'd rather see him come back foaming at the mouth around game 9, than coming back at 80% in game 1. to achieve what, anyway?
    who cares if rodney is/isn't the best SS in the league? he keeps offenses on their heels when he's on the field, i know that. and with our DL that makes it real hard to gain yards running OR throwing.
    best, shmest. just want him back throwing elbows, late hits, trash talking, blowing up sweeps, clotheslining WRs, guiding wilson. god only knows what he's doing in pileups.

    Rodney is a unique individual. If anyone can come back from his type of injury its Rodney. He has the heart and soul of a Tasmanian Devil on steroids..... As tough and driven as he is, it doesn't make him stupid or rash.... If he's not 80% plus by opening day I doubt he will force his way onto the field. He's go on PUP and we'll see the Holy Terror return around week 7.....

    We all love and fear ya, Rodney! :rocker:

    you guys remember when he first game here..he poked Troy Brown in the eye in practice by accident lol..everyone hated his attitude and it was supposed to be Harrison - Milloy as the 2 safeties. then he started getting big hits..he was a vocal leader..he led our team in tackling in a lot of games..made the big plays when needed like the 1 in Pittsburgh for a TD. for me, hes easily become a favorite. i knew how tough and good he was in SD but coming here and becoming the leader was just great. love rodney..hope you get better soon

    Hope he's not pushing it. I'd rather have him completely healed than worry about the first game.

    I doubt he's rushing to make the first game I'm betting he got the doctors OK to start running and he knows he needs to rehab for no matter when he comes back. I am more in favor of using a PS spot on him then PUP that way he ready to be activated any time during the year that way if he is ready week 3-4 we don't have to wait

    Prediction

    if harrison returns to play anywhere near 100% for the next three seasons, he will become the next safety to go to the HoF (unless you count Rod Woodson who went to a few Pro Bowls as a safety and is at the head of the line for enshrinement among DBs).

    yes, I realize how unpopular he is, and that he's not been to many pro bowls, but the career stats don't lie...nor did his impact on our defense when he went down (hurt 10x worse than losing Law for example).

    His career numbers destroy John Lynch, who has been to a ridiculous number of pro bowls...six I think?

    to me there's Ronnie Lott and then there's Harrison and then there's everyone else.

    I'm not saying it will even happen within the next 15 years, but eventually he could make it.

    Here is something I heard Rodney say a couple of months ago. I'm going from memory but I'll use quotation marks anyway.

    "When the big back is coming, when the big TE is coming, and when some those big WR's are coming, a lot of those 4.3 guys turn into 4.7 guys. And, us 4.6 guys turn into 4.3 guys."

    That is classic Rodney.

    Right now at this point in his career if he were 100% healthy I would say probably about 4. That is absolutely no knock on a 33 year old player though.

    I would hope that Rodney's career is already HOF-bound, not first-ballot, but he'll get in. Who else has there been over the course of his career? I recall someone posing the list of safeties that went to the Pro Bowl instead of Rodney, all of them are below Rodney at a career-level already.
