Another fantastic article from the Talking heads of ESPN....
Now THIS suprises me. Rodney has NEVER been voted dirtiest player before.
Haha. I guess Rodney's just the easy pick this year.
rodney is the man. hes not really dirty though he doesnt intentionally take cheapshots to injure someone, he just does it because its natural, its how hes wired hes just an aggressive freak.
i cant wait to see Rodney and Meriweather back there this year, your gunna see alot of rodney rub off into meri watch!
All the more reason for receivers to duck and cover when he's coming.
And hopefully Meriweather will get this vote 8 years from now too. Having the dirtiest player in the league right over the middle is a very good asset.
I think you're right about that.
I'm looking forward to it.
Good. I like it.
Get the Hell out of his way.
PFT's take on this function of the idle bored press...
Not the worst piece of sports writing I've seen, but it makes for a better post on a messageboard than being on the "Worldwide Leader of Sports" website. Maybe it should had been a "Page 2" article, as should most of this tragic attempts to produce writing worth reading.
I knew I loved Adrian Wilson and had dreams about him in the Patriots secondary, but I didn't know it was because he played with the same edge that Harrison does. I guess Merriweather, at best, will be the same as Adrian Wilson, so I can forget that dream.
Sure, I am not surprised that Harrison lead the vote count. It can't hurt that he is on a team that is constantly getting publicity for everything from winning to cheating. When do you hear about the Titans and Kevin Mawae?
My list goes more like this:
1. Kevin Mawae
2. Roy Williams (only horsecollars because he sucks in coverage)
3. Rodney Harrison/Adrian Wilson: true football players!
Hines Ward got a vote?!?!??! Because he run blocks?
Seriously, who really cares? These types of votes are useless. Reputations and reality aren't neccessarily the same. How many times do you see a player make the Pro Bowl when he has a crappy year and many times that player doesn't lead the fan voting at all and gets in primarily because of player and coaching voting.
WOOHOO! Ward Got Votes!!! You go kid!
seriously...if ESPN wasn't showing highlights of Harrison hitting people since he started in the league with I think the Chargers, he wouldn't be getting these votes.
The fact it doesn't go to the entire Raiders organization tells you how far out of the spot light that Franchise has fallen over the years.
Notice only 17 coaches responded to this, how much you want to bet that BB didn't respond to this retarded poll. Which makes me wonder, what kind of head coach would reply to this?
That means there are 21 coaches that appreciate the awesomeness of Rodney. And, 11 crybabies.
I pretty surprised that Mawae didn't get more votes, and that none of the Denver O-line got any votes, the way they like to roll up on knees.
The fact that Rodney is legitimately a cheater now (HGH) probably didn't help him in the votes department.
I will try and guess the 11 coaches. This sounds like fun, lets do that.
-Jack Del Rio ?
-Andy Reid ?
-Mike Shanahan? (Champ Bailey said Rodney was dirty)
The Herminator was the first guy I thought of as well. I like this game. Here's my other 10:
Al Davis filled out Lane Kiffin's for him
You have to include Brian Billick in any list regarding Rodney being the dirtiest player in the NFL for this reason alone:
I love Rodney and I personally believe he's been nothing less than a savior for the defense at times, but you have to admit there were a few moments last year where he was getting out of hand with his late hits on the pile.
I can recall at least two moments where he just blatantly threw himself at someone in the pile well after the whistle. Didn't Belichick bench him late in the game at one point after he drew an obvious personal foul on special teams?
yeah but that stuff is funny.
I didn't include him only because he's not the coach at Baltimore anymore, is he? I thought he got replaced.
Classless? Na, I don't think so. Stupid? Some of his PF have been VERY stupid. He just needs to exercise some control from time to time.....maybe.
Bill would agree with some of that -Watch the last 5 min of the Week 17 Giants game. Rodney(or team, I can't remember) got his second PF, you can see Bill ask who it was on, and then he pulls him out of the game - as Rodney walks by Bill they are both yelling at each other and Rodney goes to the bench (I think it's Tommy that walks over to him and says something to him).
Of course, the beauty of that is that 2 plays later Rodney's back in the game and Bill is giving him the plays and encouraging him from the sideline.
I suspect Rodney will be a little toned down with the "Merriweather understudy" project.
A few years back, he spent time working as an official (NFL Europe) and was very cerebral about it. I suspect coaching is in his future.
So not voting for Rodney (or even responding to the poll) is the same as "appreciating his awesomeness?" Dude!
Travis Henry has 9 kids from 9 women.
He gets my vote.
when Rodney first got here i remember one play that made me fall in love with him. I dont remember the exact team but there was a fumble and a huge pig pile with both teams going at it trying to get the ball, even refs piled in there. Well there were guys pushing and shoving etc etc, anyways Rodney was wrecking havok like you know he does, he was just outside the pile pulling guys off and stuff he wasnt on the bottom, and you know how Rodney gets when after the play hes always in a scrum with someone, well there was a big a55 olineman from the other team that came over and started messing with Rodney, Rodney straight up pushed him back and he went flying over the pile backwards and fell on his a55. Was the funniest thing man, owning a big olineman like that.
im gunna miss him when hes gone! Hes 35. This may be his last season. At least we got Meriweather to latch on to now, this kid is gunna be just as good.
Now that was classless.
A Bills fan pretending to be a Patriots fan...pathetic.
A title well earned by Rodney. What makes Rodney dirty is what he does, constantly, after the whistle. He is a "Chippy" player.
