New York Jets defensive tackle Sione Pouha says the touchdown celebration by Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson was insensitive to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
  

Pouha says Monday that Johnson putting his arms out and acting like a plane — something Santonio Holmes does after scoring — but then crashing into the turf in the Jets’ 28-24 win Sunday was “kind of a dagger” because of the attacks that occurred 10 years ago in Manhattan, a few miles from MetLife Stadium.
  

Pouha says it was an “unprofessional” gesture by Johnson, whom he says didn’t take into account that 9/11 is a “sacred moment.”
  

Johnson was penalized for excessive celebration for going to the ground during a celebration that including mocking Plaxico Burress shooting himself in the thigh.
