Jersey Girl Sports fam, there’s no surprises about the results of this poll. The Sporting News midseason players poll results show Detroit Lions’ Ndamukong Suh as the dirtiest player in the NFL.
This is the second year Suh received this un-auspicious award. Sporting News asked 103 players from 27 teams –all of whom remained anonymous, various questions and this particular question yielded some interesting results:
Who is the dirtiest player in the league?
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
According to Sporting News, 12 players received one vote. Some comments from players included:
“Ndamukong Suh. I mean, the step-on and the choke and the kick and the arm bar. Enough said, right?” —NFC defensive player
“Suh. He hasn’t done anything crazy (this year). The type of hits he puts on quarterbacks, the way he finishes guys—some of them are legal, but a lot of them I’d say are over the top.”—NFC defensive player
“Richie Incognito. I’ve seen a couple of plays on a D-lineman where (Incognito) is trying to roll up his ankle while he’s trying to get him off him. Crap like that is not needed in this game.
—NFC defensive player
“Cortland Finnegan. That guy will grab you everywhere … in the facemask, everything. He’s just nasty.” —NFC offensive player
This is interesting. There’s always stuff going on under the pile that the cameras miss. Ndamukong Suh has a negative reputation on and off the field. Perhaps it’s time he works to change it for the better.
What do you think?
