Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison doesn’t seem to know who former Raiders quarterback Ken Stabler is.
During a radio interview with Tim Benz of WXDX radio, Stabler’s name was brought up because of a lawsuit that he filed against the NFL that states that Harrison should be kicked out of the league for all the illegal hits he’s laid on opposing quarterbacks.
Thanks to ProFootballTalk.com for providing the transcript below.
Benz: “James, are you aware of the story about the lawsuit mentioning your name in Philadelphia and if so what’s your reaction to it?”
Harrison: “I’m not aware of it.”
Benz: “Ken Stabler and some of the other former pro football players in a concussion suit referenced you as a guy that was a repeat offender and maybe should be out of the game. When you hear former players say that about you –”
Harrison: “Who is — Ken who?”
Benz: “Ken Stabler.”
Harrison: “Who is that?”
Benz: “Former Raider quarterback.”
Harrison: “Never heard of him. His opinion doesn’t matter to me.”
I can’t say I’m surprised that Harrison doesn’t know who Stabler is, he doesn’t seem like the brightest guy.
