Rodney Harrison is a two-time Super Bowl Champion, a
two-time pro-bowler and a four time all-pro.
He joined Chad on Flight 750 Tuesday to talk about Peyton Manning's comeback from injury.
“Once you come back from an injury like that, you start second-guessing yourself and you say ‘well can I still get it done’ but I think with more repetitions, more time, more experience you start building your confidence and each week with the rehab he’s starting to get stronger and starting to really recognize different defenses and get back to normal from a visual and a physical standpoint.
Harrison also spoke about the Baltimore Ravens’ tough weekend – losing two key players on a defense that is already missing one of its studs in Terrell Suggs.
“When you lose a Ray Lewis, you lose 17 years of experience, of emotion – He’s your emotional leader, he’s the guy that makes the calls on the defense. He recognizes things. He plays at a high level even though he’s 37-38 years old. But with Lardarius Webb, I think that’s the most critical injury because he’s a young shutdown corner. He has the ability to play all over the field and he brings that confidence with him. He makes that entire secondary better.”
Take a listen to the interview and be sure to look for Harrison every Sunday as a member of the NBC Sports’ Football Night in America team.
