    Fast Facts: Harrison, who spent nine seasons with San Diego before joining the Pats in 2003, has incurred more than $300,000 in fines, including $7,500 for a late hit on Arizona QB Josh McCown in Week 2. He was an All-Pro last year.... In 2001 Neil drew a $15,000 fine for clipping LB Bryan Cox, a play on which Cox broke his leg.

    GREAT! Three of the top ten are Broncos, and they are coming up soon.

    I don't think Turley has played at all this year due to injury. And I'm thinking I read his career is in jeopardy.

    I always thought Lambert of the Steelers years ago was a dirty player.

    Notice that two of them are O-linemen, I love an Offensive line with a nasty streak. Maybe that is why in years past all they did is put a back in the backfield and he rushed for over a thousand yards.

    I saw this and was shocked that a WR came in 2nd. Haven't watched Ward play enough even though he is on my fantasy team.

    Their offensive linemen have always been known to throw illegal blocks...

    He has been given the label of the hardest hitting WR and best blocking WR for a reason. I've seen hits where he's come in and completely demolished some pretty big dudes...legally.
