Steelers outside linebacker James Harrison made several headlines when the August issue of Men’s Journal hit the stands.

The story, James Harrison: Confessions of an NFL Hitman, is flooded with quotes that attack various people around the league, including Texans outside linebacker Brian Cushing.

Harrison describes Cushing as having been “juiced out of his mind”, even though the Steelers have yet to play the Texans since Cushing was drafted out of USC in 2009.

When contacted by John McClain of the Chronicle and SportsRadio 610, Cushing, who served a four-game suspension in 2010 for failing a substance test, had only this to say: “I’ll pray for him.” 

The Steelers will play the Texans at Reliant Stadium on Oct. 2.

Harrison criticized the NFL commissioner the most.

“Roger Goodell, who’s a crook and a puppet, said I was the dirtiest player in the league.” Harrison told Men’s Journal. “If that man was on fire and I had to piss to put him out, I wouldn’t do it. I hate him and will never respect him.”
