Harrison, Mundy tabbed as dirty by peers; Pats named best organization


Mark Kaboly | Tribune-Review

Apparently, James Harrison’s reputation still precedes him.

The Steelers linebacker was voted fourth dirtiest player in the NFL by a poll taken by Sporting News’ network of NFL correspondents of 103 players from 27 teams.

Harrison has yet to be penalized this year and has been penalized only once since getting suspended for hitting Cleveland quarterback Colt McCoy last year — a span of eight games.

Another Steelers defender made the list as well — safety Ryan Mundy.

Here is the list of who got votes:

Lions DT Ndamukong Suh — 32

Dolphins G Richie Incognito — 19

Rams CB Cortland Finnegan — 14

Steelers LB James Harrison — 6

Titans OT David Stewart — 3

Eagles DE Jason Babin — 2

Steelers S Ryan Mundy — 2

In the same poll, the Patriots were named as the best organization over the Steelers.

Here are the votes:

New England Patriots 34

Pittsburgh Steelers 21

New York Giants 19

Green Bay Packers 15

Baltimore Ravens 2

Dallas Cowboys 2

Houston Texans 2

San Francisco 49ers 2

Seattle Seahawks 2
