Harrison Wins DPOY

Recommended Posts

NEW YORK - James Harrison slams down the current version of the Steel Curtain better than any Pittsburgh Steeler, earning him the Associated Press 2008 Defensive Player of the Year award.

 

The linebacker who had a career-high 16 sacks, setting a team record, and led the NFL with a career-high seven forced fumbles, beat Dallas' DeMarcus Ware in balloting by a nationwide panel of 50 sports writers and broadcasters announced Monday. Pittsburgh defense was the league's stingiest in total defense, pass defense and points allowed. Harrison was its main hammer.

 

"That's something that everybody in the league would love to have, to be voted the top player in the league for that year," Harrison said. "In my mind, I think I do -- and it's going to sound boring -- what the defense allows me to do and what my teammates allow me to do."

 

Harrison earned 22 votes to 13 for Ware.

 

Ravens safety Ed Reed, the 2004 winner, got eight votes. Tennessee defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth had five and Harrison's teammate, safety Troy Polamalu, got two.

I'm actually kind of relieved by this.

im not happy at all. I hate pittsburgh. I like seeing them lose at everything. I wish them nothing but non-success. I'd rather see ware get it than harrison.

 

Although when it comes to game changing players reed is heads and shoulders above. He got off to a slow start this year thats all. Hes peaking right now which benefits us greatly.

Just take a look at the playoff record of every person that has won an honor this season, though. That's why I'm relieved.
