Harrison named team MVP again

Wednesday, Dec. 24, 2008

Pro Bowl outside linebacker James Harrison was named the Steelers most valuable player today for the second consecutive year in a vote by the players.

Harrison, who will start for the AFC in this year's Pro Bowl, has recorded a franchise-record 16 sacks this season.

Harrison leads the NFL this season with seven forced fumbles, which is tied for the most for the Steelers since the free agency era (1992-2008).

He's also considered a favorite to win the NFL's top defensive player award, and has an outside chance to be named league MVP.
