It's unintelligent to call the post racist. It's not racist to make an observation of someone's play regardless of color. They do need to shut up and play. Just like everyone else on the team.

I'm on the fence with this one. I think they do the after the catch stuff a bit too much, but I wouldn't want them to stop. IMO the team has lacked that "pumped up" style for a few years now and I think it's hurt the overall play, especially on defense.

I remember watching the way Miami U players used to dance after big plays in the late 80's. For 20 years these "theatrics" have been apart of the game. What's the big deal?

If we are going to complain about things that go on after the whistle then what is worse, celebrating a first down or watching Kemo last year cleaning up piles? Brown has had one penalty for excessive celebration and all he did was jump in the crowd and got stuck upside down. Probably shouldn't have even been flagged as many teams do the Lambeau leap celebration.

We all have to remember that the NFL is the highest rated television product on TV. The league loves celebrations as they show a replay of almost every one. Also, these celebrations get the crowd and team fired up. Stick to college ball if you don't like it. But like I've said, it's been going on for 20 years. What time capsule did you just crawl out of?

Word.

Make the play, go celebrate with your teammates, but skip the stupid sideshow and self-aggrandizement. Miller, Polamalu, and Silverback are consummate professionals-- they let their actions speak for them. Kinda like the difference between the type of Christian that Polamalu is, verses the used-car salesman for God that Tebow is.

I watched Ward from his first start to the day he retired. He was the guy who I have watched through all of my prime football-watching days. I cried when he retired. He never did stupid stuff like these endzone dances, except the one time he tried to do the Ickey Shuffle and sucked, so Peezy had to punk him out. Ward's celebrations were spirited and passionate, not contrived and performed. Mosts of the time, all he had to do was smile.

You know some of these guys actually rehearse that crap in front of a mirror so they can pull it off on gameday. That is LAME.

If that's your thing that is cool. I have just never liked braggarts or when people self-advertise.

Reminds me of that old saying (sure I don't have it right): "Great men talk about ideas. Mediocre men talk about acquaintances and current events. And ignorant men talk about themselves."

As for the poor person who played the race card about the initial OP....I think your accusation says alot more about your position than it does about the OP's. Pretty sad, actually.

Antonio Brown's biggest celebration came when the crowd was ELECTRIFIED after a defensive shutout following a TERRIBLE pass interference call that went against Taylor. Brown's energy was awesome, and welcomed, and it only pumped the crowd up even more.

Oh and one last thing: Heath doesn't have an attitude. He's extremely laid back and relaxed, and does nothing but his job and his goal is to win. Not saying I don't like that, i'm just saying that everyone shouldn't emulate it. Watch Heath's post-game interviews. He's not exactly one to get "pumped up" during or after a game. He's all about doing his job.

Bring on the celebration! That's our Steelers and they were playing at home. Great way to get the fans into the game! I completely respect Heath for the way he is. I also accept and respect the young money crew for who they are. Go ahead, Antonio, be who you are. You deserve to act out when you make a play like that (catching the ball for a first down and holding onto it even after getting completely clobbered).

I think most of us could at least agree that regardless of who does what, if it gives them a n edge/spark, then it can only help.

The Eagles/Ravens game was much worse with the pointing for first down. I'm not a big fan of it either, but is it safe to say they might have just been feeding off the energy of the crowd, and that this energy is a whole lot better than the lack of we witnessed @ Denver?
