Default What's with all the celebrating?

Why does Brown and Saunders have to celebrate every 1st down? It's usually comes before or after a dropped pass.

The defense dances around after a tackle that gained a yard (I admit that with this defense they should be happy to get a sack). Knowing the other team will convert the 3rd, why not get the hell back to the huddle?

Steeler teams of the past had pride and it was more about the team then some individual achievement.

I'm a welder, if I have 8 leaks on a steam line, I don't go giving high fives because a couple didn't.

Cause they're the Loose Change Crew yo! Represent! No big deal, cause their buddy Mike Tomlin will just pick up their change and pat them in the ass!

Loose Change Crew yo!

Notice at the beginning of the season all we heard was what a superior core of young recievers the steelers have.

Now all we hear is, whats wrong with the steelers, their recievers can't catch a ball if you placed it in their hands.

I think a lot of the problem is publicity and each are trying to be number 1 and are over trying just to impress the news reels. They need to stop focusing on themselves and make it a team effort again.

Seriously?? Im pretty sure there are videos of former Steeler defenders celebrating wildly after a good play.

If they would have won at least half of the games they were supposed to (Tenn,Oak,Cleve,SD) then I wouldn't care as much - still not a fan of it, and especially now. IMO, a more disciplined team would recognize they haven't done anything noteworthy this season and that they need to do their job, and celebrate the win after they get it when the clock hits 0. I'd imagine it's pretty hard playing this physical a game without getting amped up - but I see what you mean, and they do lack some been here, done that type of attitude. I think what I'm looking for is more Heath Millers - just do their job, get excited, but don't make a big deal of what they are expected to do - workmanship

What is really ridiculous is when it is 3rd and 10 and they catch an 8 yd pass and still get up and do a dance.

We're actually complaining about this, now? It's a WR thing - almost every one of them has their little first down and touchdown dances - it isn't a big deal.
