Steelers James Harrison, Ryan Mundy receive votes for Dirtiest Player in Sporting News poll

Nick Laham

James Harrison received four votes and Ryan Mundy received two. Detroit's Ndamukong Suh was the leading vote-getter of 90 players polled.

Gone are the glory days when Steelers players would take up roughly half of any poll asking players or fans who the dirtiest players in the league are.

Now, they only get six, and they no longer have the top spot.

In a Sporting News poll conducted by asking 90 NFL players which ones were the dirtiest of their peers, Steelers outside linebacker James Harrison received six votes - good for fourth place behind Ndamukong Suh, Ritchie Incognito and Cortland Finnegan.

Steelers safety Ryan Mundy finished seventh with two votes - rounding out the list of players who earned multiple votes. Odds are good Raiders wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey voted for Mundy.

In recent years, Steelers WR Hines Ward was at worst a top-three candidate, but without Ward, and Harrison having missed extensive time, opponents have had less opportunities to cry about the aggressive style of the Steelers. In recent weeks, that physical brand has been stamped back on this team, so maybe it's possible they could move up a bit more in future polls.
