Steelers fans know the name Myron Cope. They remember all of the memorable calls he made during his career.

We, the Steelers fans, know the Terrible Towel. This article is somewhat of a response to the Tennessee Titans fan who believes the Steelers will lose their home opener.

Not happening.

Keith Bullock made a mistake, a big mistake, when he disgraced the Terrible Towel. You could ask him yourself, he knows that he has done wrong.

Nobody, NOBODY, disgraces the Terrible Towel and gets away with it. Myron Cope will never let it happen.

During the 2005 Super Bowl XL run, in the regular season, Cincinnati defeated the Steelers at Heinz Field.

OK, good game, one problem: TJ Houshmanseattle used a Terrible Towel to clean his shoe.

Not a towel, a Terrible Towel.

Who remembers what happened in 2005 during the Wild Card round? Oh, wait, we murdered the Bengals.

Merrill Hodge said it best, "When I saw Keith Bullock stomp on the Terrible Towel after the game, I knew that there would be revenge in the playoffs."

It may not have happened in the playoffs, but I can only guess when it may happen. See you week one, Tennessee Titans!

Pittsburgh: (1-0)
