If everything the Titans are saying about the Saints after their 22-17 loss to them on Sunday is true, New Orleans was not exactly playing nice.  Earlier, we told you how receiver Nate Washington was accusing Roman Harper of being a dirty player and claiming the Titans knew the Saints would be chippy heading into the game.  The second accusation being made is a bit more severe, as Tennessee is saying a whistle was being blown from the New Orleans bench area late in the game.

Offensive lineman Jake Scott claims Dean McCondichie, the producer of the team’s television show “Titans All Access,” has evidence that it was indeed happening while the Titans were on offense.

“Dean’s got it on tape,” Scott said according to ESPN.com. “Somebody was blowing a whistle on the sideline. There is audio of it, so we’ll let it go from there. The second to last drive I think.”

“During the game we heard this whistle blowing, but they weren’t stopping the game, they just kept playing,” McCondichie explained. “They were loud enough for me to hear it on the microphone on (offensive lineman Michael Roos). They were all trying to figure out why play continued. I asked them if they knew where it came from and they said the New Orleans bench. Nobody saw it, but it was pretty loud and it was definitely a whistle.”

McCondichie said the whistle was definitely loud enough for several Titans players to hear it.  The team is looking into the matter, and obviously the Saints would be facing huge penalties if the league were to determine that something like that was going on.  For what it’s worth, Sean Payton and Bill Belichick are close friends.

  • Wow...! And me and FB friends were exchanging comments on how we believed they had to "cheat us to beat us" The irony.
  • Saints don't have to cheat we are winners on our own merit. We don't have to cheat to win. The Titans are just sore losers. Losers everyone of them. If there was a whistle, the refs would have stopped the game or thrown a flag. Heaven knows they were throwing the flag for everything else. Maybe someone blew his nose too loud.
  • I heard the whistle as well but, the Saints don't need to blow whistles to win a game, and after all, the players did not stop playing anyway, so what difference does it make??
  • the game was at the titan's house. if there were whistles , it was your fans. to accuse the saint's bench is assinine and larry brown is the ASS. probably a new york yankee just trying to stir up some feces. F U larry brown
