08:01 AM ET 12.12 | The Titans emerged from Sunday's loss to the Saints banged up -- and more than a little upset with their opponent. Veteran offensive linemen Jake Scott and Michael Roos said they thought a whistle was being blown from the Saints' bench area late in the game, particularly during the Titans' second-to-last offensive possession. ... Titans receiver Nate Washington also took exception to the play of New Orleans safety Roman Harper, who was called for a facemask on a tackle of Damian Williams that kept Williams out of the end zone after a 54-yard catch-and-run. "Honestly, he's a dirty player," Washington said. "We watched film on him, he's dirty. And I don't appreciate it, I'm going to step out in public and say it: He's dirty."

That was pretty cheap, but in the end, failing to score in the final seconds was the real story.

After years of being one the dirtiest teams in the NFL, the Titans are going to call someone else out?

This year has shown that the Titans' response to a loss is to cry "dirty"

Damn skippy it is. Tell Chris Johnson to put his head down and make the first down instead of stopping dead still a yard away and being tackled in the open field late in the 4th quarter. We lost because we didn't make plays.....

I recommend spell check. You can usually access it sitting on your head couch.
