Titans think Saints might have played dirty
By Paul Kuharsky
Displeased with the Saints after Sunday’s loss to New Orleans, a couple members of the Tennessee Titans aired their complaints.
Right guard Jake Scott said he thought someone at the Saints' bench was blowing a whistle late in the game that was conflicting with the whistles of the game officials. A producer of the Titans’ weekly TV show could hear it through a microphone being worn by left tackle Michael Roos.
And receiver Nate Washington had a big issue with the way safety Roman Harper took Damian Williams down by his facemask and then stepped over him, calling Harper "a dirty player."
