Harris maintains eye contact and focus, while running full speed. Not many Linebackers are capable of doing this, outside of Patrick Willis. But one of the most under-rated Linebackers in the game, David Harris, CAN.
Just look at this effort by #52, not to mention the one-handed catch! This is what it means to “Play Like A Jet”!
In case you did not know.
Harris shows great awareness with his eye-popping grab. He does a 180°, shifting his body, and makes a move up-field.
You really can’t ask more out of a Middle Linebacker. Within one play, Harris eliminated the short read to Victor Cruz, got in position to stop the slant, and made an incredible one-handed interception in a crucial time of the game (I just wish we made a comeback after).
Although we didn’t win the game, the point is, that if Harris can elevate his play from last season…. LOOK OUT!
David Harris has the versatility that few others around the league do. Rex Ryan must love coaching Harris because he is an excellent and humble teammate. Harris, in my opinion, is in the prime of his career. This means that there are plenty of plays, just like this one, that will help the Jets Defense in the future. By help, I mean getting back to the #1 Defense in the league like we were in 2009. I have faith that we can do it… What about you?
