Harris bows out of Pro Bowl

| 6 Comments | No TrackBacks

Tommie Harris took about a month to make it official as he bowed out of the Pro Bowl on Thursday because of his left knee that was troublesome almost all season.

He will be replaced on he NFC roster by Arizona’s Darnell Dockett, who had a career year for the Cardinals with 75 tackles and nine sacks.

Harris was battling his balky hamstring when Dallas Cowboys right tackle Marc Colombo leg whipped him in the Sept. 23 meeting at Soldier Field, damaging Harris’ knee. He soldiered on, but revealed in November that he would require arthroscopic surgery when the season ended.

Harris finished with a career-high eight sacks.

Coincidentally, Harris' decision helps out his agent Drew Rosenhaus. Dockett is also represented by the Miami-based power broker.

I have a lot of respect for Tommie Harris for playing most of the season injured when a lesser player would of gone on injured reserve. I don't think Harris needs to play in the meaningless Pro Bowl any ways it's better that Harris gets that knee better for next season GO BEARS!

Jerry the "Scarecrow" Angelo. I hope you finally made it to Oz and got your BRAIN. If you did....PLEASE SIGN TOMMIE HARRIS! PLEASE! We are doomed if you dont! He is one of the toughest players off the field and one of the most worry free off the field. He plays hard all time even when he is injured! This kid is the future! Make him one of the top 3 paid defensive lineman in the game!

I'm glad to see Tommie is taking care of his body instead of putting more stress and strain on it. With a little rest and rehab he will be a monster next season. I'm sure JA knows that signing him is a must and will get it done in due time. Bear Down!

Yeah Tommie's a tuff guy but i dont have any respect for Lovie Playing him and not letting him heal correctly!!Besides they new the year was done after the 4th or 5th game anyway!!!

They knew the season was over in the 4th or 5th game? Jeez, they were still talking as if they had a shot at repeating as Super Bowl entrants when the best they could do was 8-8! Get Lovie Howell the heck out of here! He and his top 5 coaches salary! Heck, Jerry 'Centsless' Angelo can't even blam that fiasco on the salary cap, but he'll try! Tommie Harris is a pro bowl player, never griped about his knee, and didn't make it a side show like Brian Urlacher did!!!!!

I THINK TOMMIE IS THE BEST BEAR WE GOT IN A CLASS BY HIM SELF
JERRY DO THE RIGHT THING AND GET THAT RING GO! BEARS
