Jets nose tackle Sione Pouha wasn't laughing at Bills' Stevie Johnson's touchdown celebration over the weekend in New York.

He wasn't laughing then and he's certainly not laughing now. In fact, Pouha isn't even that mad at Johnson for pretending to "pull a Plaxico Burress" and shoot himself in the leg. What has him fuming? The fact that Johnson pretended to be a crashing jet, according to the New York Post.

Pouha believes that when Johnson acted as if he was a plane crashing to the ground, that it was insensitive to the victims of 9/11.

"Us being from New York, we like to hold ourselves to some integrity, and that airplane thing, in my opinion, was kind of a dagger considering the circumstances of remembrance of what we just had on Sept. 11," Pouha said. “It was just unprofessional. We all stand for pride around here, and that's a sacred moment for a lot of people and it's a very sobering moment."

  • You gotta be kidding. He was mimicking the Jets crashing. THE NEW YORK JETS crashing; not a real plane. The Jets are so self assorbed and so delusional about their "talent" that they can't even recognize that he flippin' them the bird.
  • It was not offensive to 9/11!!! If anything it was offensive to the JETS the TEAM the BIlls were playing!!! He was having a little fun and rubbing it in his opponents faces that they were crashing and burning! Don't try to get someone in trouble for something they did just because your team's inferior and it upset you that they made fun of you. I think it's pretty damn hilarious! (And I'm not even a fan of either team!)
  • "Us being from New York, we like to hold ourselves to some integrity..." - now that right there is funny.
  • Get over yourself, Pouha! The world does NOT revolve around New York, or the United States! This was just a TD dance, not a dis to anyone but your shabby Defense!
  • I can not believe this!!! I am amazed that anyone would even admit this out loud, much less publish it. I would like to say to Pouha--ARE YOU STUPID???!!!! Did I say that I was AMAZED!!!!
