Boomer, let's look at the current list of the NFL dirtiest players as compiled by the Sporting News:
Here’s the top five:
1. Richie Incognito, RG, Rams
2. Hines Ward, WR, Steelers
3. Kevin Mawae, C, Jets
4. Harvey Dahl, G, Falcons
5. (t) Darnell Dockett, DT, Cardinals
How many times have any of these guys been suspended? The Niners don't have anyone on their roster that other teams consider dirty or nasty IMO. That "edge" along with some talent would be a welcome addition to this team in the future.
Being a dirty player isn't what we're talking about. You don't have to have bad character to "Play dirty"
Tank Johnson, Antonio Bryant, Dante Stallworth, Mike Vick, Pacman Jones.............These are the guys we're talking about.
