He made the most spectacular defensive play in Super Bowl history, as well as the most notorious hits of this NFL season. Pittsburgh linebacker James Harrison prefers to look at both of those things the same way ? yesterday's news. Asked Tuesday about his 100-yard interception return in Super Bowl XLIII against Arizona, Harrison brushed it off. "That was then," he said. "This is a totally different year. " And it's a season in which he's been a little lighter in the wallet, as he was fined a league-high $125,000 for helmet-to-helmet hits ?

PITTSBURGH -- Don't let their own talking fool you. The Pittsburgh Steelers miss Joey Porter, and a lot. They miss his motor mouth, which constantly runs at 100 miles per hour and has distracted, if not deterred, countless NFL players. His talking once led to Porter being thrown out of a game before it started and to dominating the attention at a Super Bowl for two days. "He tries to intimidate other people," Steelers defensive lineman Chris Hoke said. "He tries to make them scared."

Cameron Wake might know the short way to the quarterback, but the Miami Dolphins outside linebacker sure took the long way to the NFL. Wake, whose sack-strip of Brett Favre last Sunday led to an instant Dolphins touchdown, took one of the more roundabout routes imaginable to get where he is today. Strong play from Wake on Sunday night will be key to contain the visiting New York Jets and quarterback Mark Sanchez. "When a guy can beat you with both his legs and his arm, it puts more stress on your defense," Wake told the Palm Beach Post last week, referring to Sanchez, the former USC quarterback.

Pittsburgh Steeler Coach Bill Cowher wants on-the-edge linebacker Joey Porter to pull his punches, even if it means walking away from a confrontation. Cowher said Porter's pregame fight Sunday with Cleveland Brown running back William Green couldn't be condoned, even if Porter was provoked. Porter and Green were ejected after fighting briefly about 45 minutes before the Steelers' 24-10 victory at Cleveland.

Guys like Joey Porter are the reason sports books should take prop bets on the week leading up to the Super Bowl. The smart money for Player Most Likely to Go Off in a Press Conference would have been on Porter. And the Pittsburgh Steeler linebacker would have been easy money. All it took was a little comment by Seattle tight end Jerramy Stevens -- that the Jerome Bettis homecoming story would not have a happy ending because he would walk away a loser -- for the wraps to come off Porter.

Times NFL writer Sam Farmer poses the big questions as each team readies for training camp: Rex Ryan is going to have to be part coach, part chemist this season. The New York Jets coach, whose team surprisingly came within a victory of the Super Bowl last season, let three locker-room fixtures go — Thomas Jones , Alan Faneca and Leon Washington — and made some high-profile and dicey additions, including Santonio Holmes , Antonio Cromartie , LaDainian Tomlinson and Jason Taylor . The whole football world will get an up-close view on what unfolds, as the Jets are the featured team on HBO's reality series "Hard Knocks."

While the sports world was busy trashing the trash talking of hockey's Sean Avery this week, there was something more compelling to note beyond his potty mouth: The muzzling of trash talking. Or maybe it's what in this Jerry Springer world constitutes an attempt for "clean trash talking," a sporting oxymoron along the lines of "fun run" and "draft expert." There's a line being drawn out there, somewhere, and it began before Avery's tasteless comments regarding a former girlfriend dating an opponent.
