Asked about the late-game celebration by the Browns coaches who are former Patriots assistants, Brady said, "It’s just their personality," and if the Pats didn’t like it, they should have played better to prevent it. "When you play well, you can do whatever you want, as far as I’m concerned," he said, adding, "They deserve it. They won."
So that got me to thinking about two things I thought would be cool to bounce around and discuss:
What celebrations annoy you the most in a football game?
Should players continue to do it (when necessary)?
For me, I'm OK with it....as Brady said in the quote, if you played hard enough and beat the other team fair and square, you can do as much reveling in it as you want. The only times I am NOT OK with it are:
1) Celebrating what is basically a routine play (a tackle, a simple 1st down catch in the 4th quarter when your team is down by 30 or more)
This guy does that a lot.
2) Sideline celebrations in the regular season (especially when you aren't a 1st year head coach celebrating your 1st win....) I mean, the dancing all over the place, the fist-pumps (looking at you Josh McDaniels), the Gatorade baths....I understand it when you beat the pretty tough squads like Pitt, NE, Indy, Balt....but come on man.
How about you? Are you as annoyed with the overly excited, but watered down stuff like I, or am I just ranting (which I tend to do a lot..)
