Steelers' Harrison named NFL's Defensive Player of the Year
Monday, January 05, 2009
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Steelers linebacker James Harrison has been named the NFL's Defensive Player of the Year, according to the Associated Press.

Dallas linebacker DeMarcus Ware was second and Baltimore safety Ed Reed was third.

Harrison, who set a Steelers record with 16 sacks this season, is their first defensive player of the year since Rod Woodson in 1993. He is the fifth Steelers player to win the award. Every other Steelers player is in the Hall of Fame (Joe Greene, Mel Blount, Jack Lambert) except Woodson, who likely will be voted in next month.

Wow.   Thought for sure they'd give it to Reed.

Well, glad they got it right.

Out of my mind on Saturday night...
