After being voted the NFL’s second dirtiest player, behind Ndamukong Suh, Dolphins guard Richie Incognito took to Twitter to thank his Mom and Dad for raising an “ass kicking machine” (Credit: AP Photo) Last week, The Sporting News released a player poll with a variety of questions. The poll asked for the most overrated coach, most underrated coach, most overrated player, most underrated player and which player was the dirtiest player in the NFL. This year, Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was voted the NFL’s dirtiest player. Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito was voted the second dirtiest player in the NFL. Being voted the second dirtiest player in the NFL is something Incognito sees as an honor and that means he is a player who the other team has to watch out for on the field. “I play the game the right way; I play a physical brand of football. I get after people, and there’s a fine line between dirty and physical,” Incognito told the Sun-Sentinel. “So it’s a badge of honor for an offenseive lineman to be up that high on the list. It definitely plays on defenders’ minds that this guy is going to get after you for four quarters.” Incognito, who was voted the league’s sixth dirtiest player last year, said he was surprised over his leap to second this year. The Dolphins guard then went on to have a little fun on twitter, posting a picture of him and his family, saying he owed it all to his parents. “I’m having fun with it. I threw a thing out on Twitter [Thursday] night just thanking my parents,” Incognito said. I would like to thank my MOM & DAD for raising an ass kicking machine. #2 Dirtiest Player in NFL twitter.com/68INCOGNITO/st… — Richie incognito (@68INCOGNITO) November 8, 2012 Follow us on Twitter @DownandDistance Down and Distance Executive Editor - Brett Krummenacker @BKrumm_SKThe post Richie Incognito sees “dirtiest player” label as “badge of honor” appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.
