RB Najee Harris 'tired' of Steelers' struggles on offense - ESPN
CLEVELAND — Sitting in front of his locker in Cleveland Browns Stadium, a despondent Najee Harris expressed frustration about his performance and the Steelers' offensive inconsistencies in the wake of a 13-10 loss to the Browns.
«There's just a lot of stuff that just goes around that you guys don't see,» he said. «I guess I'm trying to say it's just, I'm just at a point, where I'm just tired of this s---.»
Harris' tone was a shift to the rhetoric he used earlier in the season when he defended the playcalling and implored the offense to execute more. Since he arrived in Pittsburgh in 2021, Harris has frequently been sullen and silently reflective at his locker after games, but Harris' postgame availability Sunday peeled back the curtain on the tensions bubbling behind the scenes of one of the league's worst offenses.
Harris was asked about the team's 6-4 record, and if it was encouraging to have that record despite the offensive struggles.
«You could do two things,» he said. «You could look at the record and say, 'OK, we're still good right now. Or we could look at the record and be like, 'if we keep playing this type of football, how long is that s--- going to last? I look at it like, how long that s--- going to last? Y'all could look at it like, it's a good record, but I mean it's the NFL. Winning how we did, it's not going to get us nowhere.»
Harris said the problems were fixable, but he didn't express confidence they would be fixed.
«Is it fixable? Yeah. Are we going to fix it? S---,» he said, shaking his head and trailing off. Harris had 12 carries for 35 yards in the loss, while fellow running back Jaylen Warren had 129 yards on nine carries, including a 74-yard touchdown to get the Steelers on the board seconds
