    Exclamation Poll shows James Harrison still most violent, dangerous player in NFL

    Wonder of all wonders, anybody actually shocked by this? I would say I am slightly surprised for lack of a better term, that it was NFL players that voted in this and even more so that Ray Lewis came in second. I have no doubt that Harrison is a monster on the field, we all know. He'll hit you if you look at him wrong, which I think is awesome.

    Maybe it was all Ravens, Browns, and Bengals players that voted

    Harrison missed so many games last year and only had the 1 issue with McCoy in the Browns game. Yet all people ever see is those fines and issues from 2-3 years ago.
    The belief that Steelers linebacker James Harrison is a violent and dangerous player isn’t just a creation of the sports media or the opinion of Roger Goodell. It’s also shared by many of his colleagues.

    In an ESPN poll that asked NFL players, “Who is the most violent, dangerous player in the NFL?” Harrison was the runaway winner, with 67.5 percent of the vote. Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis came in second, at 10 percent.
    An interesting follow-up question would have been whether players view the “most violent, dangerous player” as someone to shun or someone to admire. The league office has repeatedly fined — and even suspended — Harrison for his helmet-to-helmet hits, but it’s probably safe to say that Harrison would wear the “most violent, dangerous player” designation as a badge of honor.

    In fact, Harrison and Goodell might even find some common ground in saying that Harrison’s reputation as the “most violent, dangerous player” is a reputation he deserves.

    I'm not shocked at all since James Harrison is the boogeyman of Goodell's NFL............

    I miss the days when being labeled the most violent/dangerous player was a good thing.

    It was voted on by the I'd guess it's a good thing in their minds.

    I bet the results of the poll would be about the same if you changed the wording to "who would you least like to try and block"
    I like big hits and I cannot lie

    It's a show of respect, at least I think it is. If somebody fears you or at the very least respects you for your violent play then you're doing something right.

    Ray Ray came in second. He's like a bad case of syphillus. He's annoying and won't go away easily.

    James would kick Ray Ray's *** in a back alley brawl.
