    Three years ago Harrison would have been top three if not number one.

    Where is Ed Reed?

    They picked BOB "I'm a midget" Sanders over Ed Reed. What a joke.

    Sanders is a good player and a good hitter, but he's not better than Reed. Heck, I am surprised that Peppers was on that list, in all honesty.

    Rodney's played so sparingly the last couple years I dont think he deserves to be on the list.

    I think this is more of a list of guys with a rep for hitting spectacularly and is all relative. I bet if you asked any running back or receiver what they think, they'd probably tell you that all defenders in the NFL hit really hard.
    One of the reasons there are so few Linemen on the list is that they rarely get those spectacular "highlight" hits. Safeties' hits stand out, because they have so many solo tackles. I bet it still really hurts when you get crushed at the line though.

    No no, Rodney is the dirty hitter, not I.

    I herd today that during his stint with the Chargers, he racked up over $200,000 in fine money. What a prick, I hope he gets injured.

    One of those stories that look good in print, but have no overall value, how do you quantify a "hitter" or better still how do you quantify who is a better "hitter", the loudness of impact or maybe how it shows on TV? It is what it is something done to sell magazines that appeals to a wide range of sports fans.

    The best way is to ask their peers. There were certainly guys in high school that I would hope I didn't have to go up against in the hitting drills.

    Ahh... Just couldn't help but spam the thread eh? That's too bad, I thought we were actually going to get something accomplished here.

    Yeah, exactly. As I said in my previous post, I bet everyone in the NFL hits with pretty much the same ferocity.

    But you are #1 on the Charity-Robbing Hard-Hitting List.

    that's something to be very proud of, take a bow.

    That's great! You wish malice on someone on someone else, but wonder why everyone around here thinks you're a dirtbag!

    I think Eugene Wilson delivers some fierce hits, when he is healthy that is:)

    Williams has huge holes in his game, Taylor had a dreadful season last year, but objectively I have to say those two guys hit like thunderbolts. They are brutal.

    Actually I would agree that Sean Taylor is one of, if not the hardest hitting player in the NFL right now.

    Roy Williams and Sean Taylor agreed with they both are hard hitting players. But i thought the article was going to talk about players that actually can play the game and not just go for big hits.

    Im sure if other guys like Merriman and Sanders wanted to hit harder they could but they at least choose not to suck at their positions.

    I wouldn't say that either Williams or Taylor "suck" at their positons.

    Roy Williams might be one of the worst safties i have ever seen play and been labeled a star player.
