I don't like it. It's a Green Bay thing and should stay in GB.

We are a top five team (historically speaking) and we create our own mythology; we do not need to adopt the dance of another team!

I like ND, but he needs to come up with his own moves...

any thoughts?

Personally, I don't mind it. I'm sure the fans in the section Dookie leaps into don't mind it, either. I've heard a lot of Steelers fans complain about other teams ripping off the Terrible Towel, but imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and I respect Green Bay as an organization. How about giving the HC a Gatorade bath after a big win? That could be considered the Giants' "celebratory property" as they invented that back in '86, but everybody that wins big games does that now. If it's a good idea, why not mimic it?

i thought it was pretty cool... it pumped the crowd up even more by seeing his excitement.. just another way to get the fans involved in the game, and thats always a good thing.

ditto . i've also heard some packers fans complain about it, I really don't understand why, it's a great way of celebration and is not like he's making fun of it, maybe he just feels some green bay pride in himself and wanted to do that

I agree, and it's the same thing with a lot of our fans and the TT - I consider it a sign of respect, not mockery.

I think it was fine, especially because he formerly played for Green Bay.

1. Davenport came from Green Bay so he has some special permissions maybe lol

2. Everyone does it now anyway, not just GB and Davenport last week... McGahee did it very often in Buffalo, Chad Johnson does it in Cleveland (Yes, Cleveland not Cincy) and I have seen countless others jump into the stands as well... The leap hasn't been unique to Lambeau for years now...

As long as we're winning, I don't care what the guys do inside the stadium. Though I thought it was pretty cool of him sharing his celebration with the fans. Didn't you guys see the fans looks, that were around him when he came up to them? AWESOME!!!

everyone has made some good points.

i guess it would bother me less if he was not formerly a packer. i want to see him have a steeler identity.

by the way, it looks like ND is starting to come into his own here; i hope he continues to develop and become a key part of the system.

A lot of football players do it. Its not really a BD.

The problem is the players aren't allowed to do any kind of celebrating or the will get flagged. You can even spin the ball after you make a 35 yard reception when it was third and twenty. Also there are a lot of teams doing this already they just haven't named it yet. I say let them have what little they can, Hop-on Steelers Hop-on!

some other guys that are not from the packers do it on lambeau field too, like darren sharper I believe last year on an interception return for td from favre. the fans just pushed him off after he jumped, it was hilarious :toofunny:

the "pittsburgh plunge" (ala kennywood) sounds alot cooler (but equally as dorky).

personally i dont care if najeh hangs his ass over the side of the guardrail and takes a dump, as long as he scores. :moon:

I wonder if the NFL has rules against that...

that would be an interesting TD celebration :thumbsup:

Didn't Troy do a Lambeau Leap in Green Bay back in 2005 after scoring on a fumble recovery?

I really don't care what the guy does as long as he plays well. Although Slippy I can definately see your point. If I were a Green Bay fan I would shake my head and roll my eyes when I see a Davenport or a Johnson and others doing the Lambeau leap. I do the same thing when I see fans outside of Pittsburgh waving little white towels. Be original for Pete's sake.

But at the end of the day it's on the same level as the Steelers mascot for me at least. Really don't care. Just win.

theres really nothing else they can do though with the no fun league rules. id love to see a steeler score a big td and start waving a terrible towel in the end zone. that would really pump up the crowd and be cool to see. didnt thigpen use to do that? i cant remember.

I say let them have what little they can, Hop-on Steelers Hop-on!when the NFL made the endzone celebration rules to put an end to all of chad and t.o.'s madness, they threw the packers a bone and said that the "lambeau leap" would not be outlawed.

so not only did they preserve what had become packer history and tradition, you can say the nfl encouraged other players to do it. (now that they cant show their emotion, or express their creativity, or individuality, or whatever it is these clowns like chad think they are doing)

You know I just may be getting old, but what ever happened to acting like you've been there before when you do something positive in sports???

F'ing young punks and thier ESPN highlight reel mentalilty.

I remember laughing at that dueshbag Mark Gasteno (sp?) during a monday night game when the Jets where down bigtime and this idiot gets a sack late in the game (read garbage time) and he goes into his song and dance then one of the opponents walks up to him and simply points at the scoreboard . . . perfect!!!

But now everyone is doing it. Billy 'White Shoes' Johnson was cool because he was original, but from the Ichy shuffle on its like damn people act like you've been there before.

Man that crap drives me nuts.

Just my $.02

deion sanders was pretty original if you are into that stuff.. other than him guys like chad johnson and TO just do it as a publicity stunt to advertise themselves... that is pathetic.

I've got a great idea for a new tradition at Heinz Field

1 - No dancing or hyping yourself up when you score a TD
2 - Act like you've been there before
3 - Hand the ball to the ref
4 - Walk off the field

The only exception is when you show the world that certain teams (i.e. the patsies) aren't as great as they think they are!!!

You know, I agree with everything everybody has said about this so far.

My take on this, who cares what happens after the touchdown. Let them celebrate a TD or a sack. As long as there is no little yellow flag laying on the ground afterwards.

the "pittsburgh plunge" (ala kennywood) sounds alot cooler (but equally as dorky).

personally i dont care if najeh hangs his ass over the side of the guardrail and takes a dump, as long as he scores. :moon:

like i said before.. if it pumps up the player and the crowd, then im all for it. he isnt promoting himself like chad johnson and TO do... he's just happy to score and giving a little back to the fans.
