      What is everybodys take on this??
      I don't believe in it just because it seems like ya'll make it up as ya'll go. Like, for example, I ghosted some Steelers boards to see if they were saying anything about Bulluck and LenWhale signing the TTowel, and some said that Titans players writing on the TTowel was disrespectful as well...even though it was meant as a good gesture.

      What's deemed disrespectful or curse-worthy? What exactly does the Terrible Towel Curse cause? The Steelers to win the Super Bowl? The offending team to lose in the Playoffs? Offending players getting injured? It's kinda like the Madden Curse in a way that anything negative can happen, and someone can jump up and go, "Shouldn't have been on Madden..." When you think of the Madden Curse, you usually think of an injury. But, sometimes players don't get injured and just have a worse year than the one before. Well, under the "Madden Curse Casualties," the effect next to that cover athlete is that he had a poor statistical season.

      So yeah, it really hasn't been around long enough for me to believe it. I only know of two teams to have been allegedly cursed for disrespecting the TTowel (Bengals and Titans), and that's too small of a sample space to be certain of what it even is or does. Still, doesn't mean I'm not gonna be extra careful if I'm ever around one. ;)

      I don't think it counts when the fans do it - only when players do. Ya gotta think that rival fans have disrespected the TTowel thousands of times before.

      Or does it count no matter who does it? See, that to me is another instance of making the rules up. What if I'm having a cookout with my neighbor who's a Steelers fan. He's got his Terrible Towel in hand, but he sets it down and my dog comes over, snatches it, and then tears it to shreds. I'm a Titans fan. It was my dog who tore up the Terrible Towel. Are the Titans now cursed again?

      Easy publicity, I guess. The demographic that follows football probably aren't card-carrying PETA members, so perhaps this is a way to get their message to that audience and show their sense of humor at the same time? *shrugs*

        The Browns cursed it in 1975. Subsequently they lost in the playoffs that year to the Steelers and look at them since then....

        :) The link that HWJ posted has a video of the curse history of the Terrible Towel.

        Of course I don't actually believe it but you better believe if I was in the NFL or even a fan, I would do the same thing as you. Be careful around one.


        Silverback....still the best.

          I like Nick Harper and all, but I hope he remains hurt till after the texans game. He blows agianst Andre Johnson.

          • I don't see the point in starting Harper again. Rod Hood has shown to play the pass better which is what we needed from that corner spot and he's also younger so he has more upside for us in the long-term.

            • terrible decision, nick harper should tell fish not to start him

              Comment


              • Hood will still be starting for the Houston game tomorrow.

                Here's what Fisher said in his Monday Press Conference:

                (on the player personnel in the secondary)


                Were going to change weekly based on our opponent. We did some different things in the game plan and that was the design. Its been a while since we had six DBs on the field, but we had that package and felt like it was good to dust off.


                (on the advantage to the six defensive backs package)


                Those are game plan specific decisions that Im not going to go into.
                Both Harper and Hood will see significant playing time, and so will Fuller. Harper is better against the run, but a liability in coverage. Hood is better in coverage, but a liability in run-support. Finny, Harper, Vinny, and Hood will all be utilized based on the opponent and matchups. When all 4 CB's are on the field, expect to see Finnegan and Hood outside, and Vinny and Harper inside.

                Just because Harper will be labeled the starter doesn't implicate exactly how they'll be played. The way I look at it is "starter" is another label for "1st Down/Running situation" player. Harper is the better run-defender, so he's the starter. In passing situations, you'll have all 4 CB's in plus Hope and Griffin. In that situation, who knows who's doing what. Fuller may be blitzing, Hood and Finny may be in man-coverage, and Harper, Hope, and Griffin may be dropping into zone-coverage. Plus, sometimes Fuller would play FS in passing situations and Griffin would move up towards the LOS.

                We run a Cover 2 - You rush 4 DL's and mix up your coverages like hell to confuse the QB. This is gonna be a good thing guys. We're not losing Hood to the bench, especially with teams like Indy and Arizona after the Houston game.

                • Hey guys, be sure to vote for the Titans in the Pro Bowl!

                  http://www.nfl.com/probowl/ballot

                  I think CJ is the only lock. I think Roos, Stewart, and Bulluck deserve to go as well.

                  http://www.fanschoice.com/

                  My ballot was:

                  -Bud Adams, Owner
                  -Steve Atwater, S
                  -Eddie George, RB
                  -Ray Guy, P
                  -John Randle, DL
                  -Steve Tasker, ST

                    • How do you guys feel about Nate Washington? I started to like him 2 seasons ago, but he is frustrating to watch if you guys have not noticed. I still can't believe he got a big contract for a number 2 or 3 reciever.

                        He's been alright. I'd hoped for more from him, but with the inconsistency at QB and adjusting to a new scheme, his lack of yardage is understandable. He is leading the team is TD catches though, and is a big upgrade over Brandon Jones and Justin McCareins. The only thing is that drops have followed him from Pittsburgh. Everyone say the big one on MNF against the Texans. Perfect deep pass from Vince, and somehow Nate loses it. Like ya said, frustrating.

                        But, he's definitely helped, and at least makes our receivers respectable with the addition of him and Britt to Gage and Scaife. And I think he's been a good locker roon guy, especially during the rough start to the season.

                          • I love all texas teams, and feel a certain love for the titans. I am so proud of this team. Vince Young is a bad MF'er.

                            And Chris Johnson is completely insane. I will say it once again...I was wrong. When the Titans drafted him I got mad. Boy, was I wrong...
                            I published my first book. Available in ebook or paperback! Check it out!!!

                              So you're kind've a closet Titans fan, HH? Or do you just have a thing for football teams with 6 letter names that start with a "T" and ends with "ans"? :D

                              • Soooo pumped for this game vs Indy! Peyton Manning and Co. vs VY and CJ! There's gonna be a lot of great plays made in that game. I think it'll come down to whose DEF is most opportunistic and makes a play. In that area, I like our chances. Can definitely see a tipped ball and Finny or Vinny snatch it and take it for a TD! :D

                                I hope Jason Jones can play though! We're gonna need him.
