When James Harrison was asked about the towel stomp... He said

add a little more fuel to the fire.

Tennessee Titans defensive end Jevon Kearse pretends to blow his nose on a Pittsburgh Steelers "Terrible Towel" in the final moments an NFL football game in Nashville, Tenn., Sunday, Dec. 21, 2008. The Titans won 31-14.

This wins a "worst karma" note in the USA Today:

-- Worst karma: Some Titans, including RB LenDale White and LB Keith Bulluck (left), stomped on a Terrible Towel, the favorite cheering aid of Steelers fans, on the Tennessee sideline in the closing minutes of a 31-14 win against Pittsburgh that clinched the AFC's top seed.

Who the hell throws their terrible towel anywhere near an opposing player anyway?

Some believe that showing disrespect for the Terrible Towel leads to anger from the football gods. Before a 1994 playoff, Cleveland running back Earnest Byner stepped on one and yelled, "We don't care about your towel. We're going to beat you this time." Pittsburgh won, 29-9.

In 2005, Cincinnati's T.J. Houshmandzadeh wiped his feet with a Terrible Towel after scoring a touchdown. The Bengals never scored again and Pittsburgh staged a comeback victory, 31-17.

Fate Not Good For Steelers' Opponents Who Desecrate Terrible Towel

Monday, December 22, 2008 – updated: 3:42 pm EST December 22, 2008
PITTSBURGH -- The Tennessee Titans’ post-game stomping of the Terrible Towel was not the first time a Steelers’ opponent disrespected the team.

Just before the Steelers’ Super Bowl run of 2005, the Bengals' TJ Houshmandzadeh wiped his feet with one.

After TJ shined his shoes, the Steelers shoved his foot into his own mouth.

Look at what's happened to the Bengals since that incident.

The next time the teams met was in the playoffs. It wasn't karma, but Kimo that did the Bengals in.

Kimo Von Oehlhoffen rolled onto QB Carson Palmer, tearing his ACL.

The Steelers went on to win the Super Bowl.

And the Bengals can't seem to stay out of trouble.

There have been ten Bengals arrests since the shoe-polishing; five for Chris Henry alone.

And the Bengals returned to their days of being the ‘Bungles.’

Their record is 18-28-1. That includes a 1-6 record against the Steelers.

I heard more than one national sports talk show host today state that it was a really dumb thing to do.

Including one Bill Cowher. But the guy whose leg Cowher broke thought it was fine and dandy:


Fisher unfazed but Cowher irked by Terrible Towel stomp

Bulluck And Titans Make Statement In Win Long after Tennessee dismantled Pittsburgh to clinch the top seed in the AFC, Titans coach Jeff Fisher finally saw the tape of players LenDale White and Keith Bulluck stomping on the Steelers' signature symbol, the Terrible Towel.

Fisher didn't see any news value in the antic, but it hit a nerve in one former Steelers coach.

"Why would it be a big deal? That if we play [the Steelers] again, they'll play harder? I don't think so," Fisher told ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen. "They always play hard.

"I mean, I know we weren't happy to have 10,000 people in our stadium waving those yellow towels. It's a tremendous commentary on the great fan base the Steelers have, but I'm sure our guys didn't like it. They're a good football team. They have our respect, and I'm sure we have their respect. But this isn't a big deal to me."

Not for Bill Cowher. A CBS-TV studio analyst since resigning as Steelers coach nearly two years ago, Cowher became animated on the air while watching Bulluck and White trample the towel after Tennessee's 31-14 victory in Nashville clinched the No. 1 seed and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.

"No disrespect to the Pittsburgh Steelers organization or the players on that team," Bulluck said Monday on "ESPN First Take," referring to the towel stomp. "It's not anything personal or disrespectful. It's just the attitude you've got to take" in a game of such magnitude.

The moment produced a flashback for Cowher, who was well known for his competitiveness and respect-the-game mentality while coaching Pittsburgh from 1992 to 2006.

"That looks like a pregame talk the night before to me," Cowher said, his eyes lighting up and his voice rising. "If [we'd] meet in the postseason, I know what I'm pulling out the night before the game."

Cowher admonished White by saying, "You've got to learn. ... I wouldn't do this, I wouldn't go there," and said Bulluck should know better because "you are a veteran, Bulluck."

Cowher's implied message to the Titans: There's a way to win in the NFL and that wasn't it, and you might regret the sideshow should the Steelers return to Nashville for the AFC Championship Game in four weeks.

The Titans' lack of respect for the Steelers' symbol almost seemed enough to motivate Cowher to return to the sideline, if only for one game. Almost.

"I don't care, I don't care. ... That's just our stand," Bulluck said. "Anybody that's going to come through here in the playoffs, we plan to stomp them out."

Still, Cowher emphasized, "It's one game, it's one game," and the Titans' victory will have no effect should the teams stage a rematch.

Cowher was speaking from experience.

Three years ago, Bengals receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh wiped his shoes with a Terrible Towel after Cincinnati won 38-31 in Pittsburgh in early December to all but clinch the AFC North. When the teams met again a month later in Cincinnati, the Steelers -- motivated by Houshmandzadeh's shoe-wiping display -- won 31-17 for the first of their three conference road playoff wins that led to the Super Bowl.

Afterward, a revved-up Cowher was caught by NFL Films mocking the Bengals' "Who Dey" chant in the locker room by yelling, "We Dey, We Dey, We Dey!"

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

I knew Cowher did because I saw it too. And animated was a good way to describe him. I was referring to Fox Sports Radio guys. I heard it from one this morning and again from one on the way home. Can't remember the guy's name from the morning. He was filling in for Steve Czaban. The guy in the evening was Fox host, RZ channel host and noted Browns fan Andrew Siciliano.

Borrowed this from Jar...this thread will be brought up later if the Titans can make it the championship game.

I saw that in-game and thought how stupid that punk was. Didn't he know that chances were good we would meet again? That game didn't really mean that much, other than they got home throughout. BFD. Stupid move. Paybacks a b!tch
