Steelers linebacker James Harrison and safety Troy Polamalu were both named first-team All-Pro on Friday.
 
It is the first time that Harrison has received the honor and the second time for Polamalu.
 
Both players were voted to the Pro Bowl team earlier this year and Harrison was recently named the NFL's Defensive Player of the Year.
 
 "To get the whole swath in one year, that's great," said Harrison.
