I don't mind a little spontaneous celebrating, but some of the over-the-top crap like T.O. and Ochostinko used to do was ridiculous. I also don't like A. Brown celebrating every first down like he just scored a touchdown, especially when we're losing. The no somersault rule I can understand as it could cause a stupid injury and/or a penalty that could cost the team.

Score a touchdown and spike the ball, jump around like an idiot, high-five, fist pump, yell and scream I don't care. The other stuff is amateurish and unneeded.

I think I'm the only one who likes ABs first down celebration.

I love creative celebrations, but I think this ban is more about the actual act then it is the spirit.

Right on Tomlin. That looked like it hurt to me as well. How stupid can you be? I guess NFL receiver level stupid.

Given Sanders' injury history, it was a moronic move. I don't know if I want someone that dumb on this football team. I like that Tomlin has banned it. Some players clearly don't seem to get the situation that they are in. They are in last place in the division and have been last in the entire NFL until this week. There is no reason to be showboating anything. Act like a pro and act like you get the sense of urgency.

TO was a character. My favorite one was when he donated a football in that large Salvation Army tin after scoring a touchdown. And he said something along the lines of it was his donation and hoped it was worth as much as the fine was going to be.

I think you are correct. I look at it in the Barry Sanders frame of reference.

HOF RB Barry Sanders hands the ball to the ref after a TD....like he's done it before and will be back.

AB and most of the NFL feel the need to celebrate getting a first down, making a special teams tackle, knocking a ball away from a WR, etc. Its what they get paid to do.

Its like Todd in Accounting having a dance every time he posts to the correct ledger account.

That's completely fair. I mean, I get the argument against it totally. I still like it though.

Tomlin needs to ban himself from speech jargon and actually do something with his team.

Cracking down on somersaults? Dude you are f****ing pathetic. Your team is 1-4 and the joke of the division. Your fancy talk isn't what will win games. Did banning those games win us the Jets game???

I understand he doesn't want someone hurt, but come on. Might as well celebrate the team finally managing to do something.

How about Antonio Brown actually makes the catch he dropped? You know, things that affect the score of the game.

Levi Brown gets injured in warm ups. Coach T, obviously your team still lacks preparation for a football game.

Bottom line....if we don't do something with this season, who gives a flying s*** about showboating?
