    Hines Ward is the dirtiest player in the NFL, according to a Sports Illustrated poll of 296 players released this week.

    The Steelers' wide receiver, long considered the league's best blocking wide receiver, received 11.6 percent of the vote. He was followed by Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth (6.0), Dolphins linebacker Joey Porter (6.0), Bengals safety Roy Williams (5.1) and Titans center Kevin Mawae (4.6). Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan (4.2), Rams guard Richie Incognito (3.7), Falcons guard Harvey Dahl (3.7), Steelers safety Troy Polamalu (3.7) and Vikings defensive end Jared Allen (3.2) rounded out the top 10.

    Ward, 33, has a long history of physical play. Last October, he was fined $15,000 for hits in back-to-back weeks that weren't penalized during the game. Later that month, Ward broke the jaw of Bengals rookie linebacker Keith Rivers with a surprise downfield block. The hit, which ended Rivers' season, did not draw a flag. "That's what he's known for," Bengals safety Chinedum Ndukwe said. "He's a blind-side guy."

    Discussing his reputation with SI last year, Ward said, "It's hard to sit there and tell everybody it's a violent sport but tone it down a little. When I go across the middle, those guys aren't going to tackle me softly and lay me down to the ground. That's not football. I find it ironic that now you see a receiver delivering blows, and it's an issue. But I haven't changed. I've been doing it this way for 11 years."

    The poll was conducted in September and included some well-known names in the top 20: Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis (3.2 percent), Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman (2.3 percent) and Jets linebacker Bart Scott (2.3 percent). Former Patriots safety Rodney Harrison, who retired last summer, received three votes.

    The Broncos' Brandon Marshall, the only other receiver listed in the poll, received one vote. No running backs were selected, but one quarterback did get a vote: the Titans' Vince Young.

    Only 7th? I guess Cogs has been behaving himself.

    How in the world did Vince Young get a vote?

    Good. We need more people like him to muster up some respect and toughness. This is a battle not a dance recital.

    Excellent. I've always liked the number 7.

    My support for the Cog remains firm. I think he is ... through a tough process of personal tweaks and tangents ... being molded into a good to very good OL. We'll see.

    Well if i remember correctly, when this poll was conducted a year or two ago, our Richie was only just beaten to the top spot by Rodney Harrison.

    So the fact that Richie is only now 7th with Harrison now gone must be a sign that he is behaving himself a bit more. I havent seen any stupidity from him since week 1 that i can remember. I dont think he has gotten any personal foul penalties since Spags pulled him.

    He mistook it as a pro bowl ballot and voted for himself?

    He's probably thrilled. A 1 is much better than the 3 he scored on the wonderlic. He plays golf, right?

    I'm surprised the ghost of Conrad Dobler didn't get a few votes.
