Where Was Al Harris' Head?

What did I tell you?

The most perplexing performance in a plethora of perplexing performances on Thursday night was Al Harris' tension-filled excuse for coverage. From the moment he wrestled the ball away from Owens on the first Cowboy drive (a call that should have gone the Packers' way - I'll spare you the ref bashing - suffice to say - they were terrible), ran to the Packers sideline and spiked the ball in front of his head coach, one could tell that Mr. Harris was a bit highly strung.

Man, someone needed to chill that guy out.

His head was clearly not in the game, not in the way it should have been. He was so zeroed in on his confrontation with Owens, he forgot he was on a team. Nowhere was this more obvious than the horrible 3rd and 19 in which Owens went in motion, Harris passed him off to Williams, and then decided that no one really needed to cover Patrick Crayton as he ran a 30 yard flag route. The scary thing is, it was eerily reminiscent of his performance against Owens three years ago in Philadelphia. Needless to say, if Harris, and more importantly, the coaching staff doesn't figure out a way to calm Harris down and get him to concentrate on the task at hand the next time the Packers face the Cowboys, the game will be over before it begins.
