Actually, the curse of the towel is the one that worked. Tennessee has been in two big games since those retards stomped the towel and they have lost both.

The only curse involved with the Polamalu injury was the cursing that Steeler fans did when they found out that he would not be returning to the game and may be out for several weeks.

So, since Troy is uot for 6 weeks, and he split the cover twith Fitz, does that mean Fitz is gonna miss 6 games?

No. His punishment is to remain healthy, and therefore to personally experience a bunch of losses to teams like San Francisco (at home nonetheless).

Yeah but you forget when they reversed this curse? Remember they had some player on their team do some philanthropic offering and fund raiser for the cause that the Terrible Towel represents, and they suddenly went on to win 6 in a row. I'm just saying.

I put a curse on each of the teams we needed to win yesterday, that, if they lost, they would be cursed. When Welker went out, I said, well that means the ***s are going to lose, then Charlie Frye went out.... Ochocinco had an mri on his knee...

Don't ever screw with one of my curses!!! :D

No. How many big name players were lost this season who weren't on the cover?

Football is a violent game...injuries happen.

Star players are star players because they make a lot of plays, and subsequently, are even more exposed to injury possibilities.

:lol:

I agree. Troy manages to be in about 90% of the plays when on the field. He covers more field per play than any other player on the team.....so his chance of injury is greater.
