    Based on a survey of 361 players... Rodney's the winner. (This list looks an awful lot like the "most feared" list they put out a month ago or so).

    Funny that Tom Brady was the only QB to get a vote for being a dirty player. :rofl:


    Rodney's take?

    Maybe this has something to do with it.

    "When those big WR's are coming, when those big TE's are coming, when those big RB's are coming, those 4.4 guys turn in to 4.7 guys and us 4.6 guys turn in to 4.4 guys" Rodney Harrison

    He brings the Hell and they just think it's dirty.:rocker:

    From the liner notes on the poll:

    "The only QB to draw a vote was Patriot Tom Brady...."

    ... Wtf? Tom's dirty?

    Actually, this doesn't surprise me. As far as QBs go, Tommy's pretty dirty. He'll do anything to win.

    I guess I just look at the term 'dirty' in football as though it means that a player will do something going against football ethics to win. They'd cheat or try to injure you on purpose or something to that effect. I've never played organized football at a high level before, so maybe dirty means something I'm not getting.

    No, that's exactly what "dirty" means. But, Tommy's a guy who talks a lot of junk, and will try to get an edge in any way. Someone probably threw the vote out there for that.

    Gotcha. You can always see Tom yelling at guys on the field, but the sound engineers never catch what he's saying (intentionally, probably).

    I'd love to hear him mic'd up, though it'd probably be far too colorful for TV.

    Obviously you have never heard his weekly Monday morning interview on WEEI when they often have to make use of the 10 second delay to blank out a word or two.

    Just out of curiousity, what has Rodney done (recently) that earns him such an impressive margin of victory here?

    Rodney wins this SI poll *every year*. This poll doesn't specify, but past polls also polled about 360 players, but always included *former* players as well. I suspect this poll does as well. This is key, because former players remember well Rodney's low hit on St. Louis' Trent Green in the 1999 pre-season, definitely not one of Rodney's better moments.

    Coincidentally, this hit opened the door for Kurt Warner to shine and an undue amount of attention given to his wife. Heck, for sicking Kurt Warner's wife upon us, I'd vote for Rodney, too!

    Regards,
    Chris

    Rodney probably was one of the one's polled and voted for Brady. Or Troy Brown, or someone like that.

    Shouldn't Albert Haynesworth be the league's dirtiest player?

    Before Harrison was injured the Pat's would very rarely send him on a blitz because it was so dangerous for the opposing QB. He remains my favorite player for his excellent quotes.

    Look at his dirty player taking a head shot at Rodney.

    Here is Rodney giving the Keynote Address at the NFL Dirty Players convention.

    Rodney's dirty play made Peyton cry.
