In the wake of a particularly stinging 22-17 loss, the Titans had a few major gripes with their opponent, the Saints, and their style of play.
Per ESPN’s Paul Kuharsky, two members of the Titans offensive line, guard Jake Scott and tackle Michael Roos, thought they heard a whistle from the Saints’ bench area, which conflicted with the whistles from the referees on the field.
And it wasn’t just their imagination: there’s apparently evidence of the rogue noise, caught by the team’s television show producer, Dean McCondichie.
“Dean’s got it on tape,” Scott said. “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.”
McCondichie had Roos mic’d up for this week’s episode of the show, and unequivocally concluded it was indeed another whistle, loud enough to see within earshot.
“During the game we heard this whistle blowing, but they weren’t stopping the game, they just kept playing,” he said. “They

NASHVILLE Tennessee quarterback Matt Hasselbeck left Sunday's game with New Orleans with a left calf injury 11:13 left in the second quarter and his return was listed as questionable.
On a bizarre series of plays, the Titans had three consecutive penalties called on their offensive line and faced a 1st-and-35. Hasselbeck went back to pass, had his throw tipped into the air...
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 Tennessee Titans are claiming someone one the Saints sideline blew a whistle loud enough for Titans players to hear during the game.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Nate Washington took issue with New Orleans safety Roman Harper after the latter saved a touchdown by using the facemask to tackle Damian Williams on Sunday.
Williams reeled in a 54-yard reception from rookie Jake Locker before Harper dragged him down by the facemask. Washington claimed that Harper added a strike with his knee after the tackle.
Tennessee Titans receiver Nate Washington is active for Week 14’s home game against the New Orleans Saints.
Washington leads the Titans in receiving with 668 yards and tops the team with five touchdowns this season.
He injured his ankle in last week’s win over the Buffalo Bills, leaving the game after making four catches for 40 yards.
I for one fully agree that it’s a total cop out to blame the refs for what your team does or doesn’t do in a close game. With that said the officiating crew for Sunday’s Titans/Saints game on Sunday can suck it and all of you know exactly why.
The dramatic, final moments of that game don’t tell the full tale of the pain we Saints fans endured and neither does the score....
In a game that was much closer than I anticipated but still had the same result, the Tennessee Titans held the New Orleans Saints' offense in check early but failed to take advantage of their opportunities early and late and fell 22-17.It looked like the Saints might roll like I thought they would, as methodically moved down the field before stalling out inside the 10 for a field...

Drew Brees showed Titans rookie quarterback Jake Locker how to close out a win. The New Orleans veteran threw two touchdown passes to Marques Colston in the fourth quarter to lead the Saints to their fifth straight victory with a 22-17 win over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. On third-and-6, Brees threw 35 yards to a wide-open Marques Colston, who jumped into the air just in front...
