It is 2011. The celebrations are not going anywhere. I'd argue that the celebrations pump the team up. Just as long as they aren't long and drawn out like Santonio's. His 1st down celebration is very emotionless and very disrespectful to the refs who are always thinking he is going to hand them the ball and he drops it. AB, Hines, and Sanders on the other hand rant and rave and get the crowd into it. You cannot deny the increased decibels of a good ol' celebration move though!! Like it or not.

The point isn't so much that it's wrong or bad that he's doing it (although I find it annoying for normal receptions). The point is that it's probably a window into the future. Santonio Brown, here we come.

if that also means he'll be a super bowl mvp like santonio then i don't care if he celebrates the win by smoking 50 joints and gets kicked off the team for it lol

Brown, never that impressed with "dime bag"... Holmes had to much off-field drama and not as much talent.

And you don't think that's an unfair characterization? Why don't you say the same about Sanders? Why do you ignore the fact that Ward does the same thing? Is it because you're oblivious to the fact that most skill position players do it? Antonio Brown never even played together with Holmes. I think Wallace is by far the most likely to develop a distracting me-first mindset that Holmes had of the "Young Money Crew". You're literally saying "he celebrates when he gets first downs fairly frequently. WATCH OUT, future headcase on the way." You also ignore the fact that a lot of his receptions tend to come on third down as well, and third down conversions are often pretty big.

Antonio Brown is a great player who made it to The Steelers on a very long and difficult journey. He is nothing like Santonio Holmes off the field. I think he's awesome and even his TD dances (though strange-looking) are fun to watch. I remember even our beloved Jerome Bettis celebrating good runs with his head shaking and stomping moves. Give the guy a break.
