Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was voted the NFL’s dirtiest player for the second year in a row. The poll of 103 players was conducted by the Sporting News, and Suh received 32 votes. Last year, Suh got 36 votes in the same poll of 111 players. Suh was suspended for two games last season after stomping on the arm of Green Bay Packers guard Evan Dietrich-Smith during Detroit’s annual Thanksgiving Day game. An anonymous NFL defensive player had the following to say about the Lions’ controversial lineman: “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.” For those who didn’t know, Suh also finished atop a poll of the NFL’s least liked players earlier this year. Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito came in second in the dirtiest player poll with 19 votes (he was sixth last season), while St. Louis Rams cornerback Cortland Finnegan (14 votes) finished third for the second-straight year. Despite not playing much this season, Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison (six votes) fell from second to fourth place this year, while Tennessee Titans offensive tackle David Stewart (three votes) was fifth. Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Jason Babin and Steelers safety Ryan Mundy rounded finished tied for sixth, while 12 players tied with one vote. This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise after Suh’s very public stomping of Dietrich-Smith last year and his numerous fines for dirty play.
