Wait a minute, what about Smitty??

Do you get pissed off every time Smitty does his thing after getting a 1st???

I do think we celebrate more than any team out there. Smitty celebrates when he runs a good route. Now he has Tolbert doing the ball spin.

I'm not wild about the first down celebration, but this is who Cam is--love it or hate it. I hate it much less when we are winning.

I personally don't mind the celebrations....shows emotion.

But, there is a reason why Cam might want to stop them right now. The media is all over this guy. Everything he does just adds fuel to the fire. By stopping them now, you shut them up to some extent.

Again....not bashing for him doing it. Just pointing out that his life might get a little easier if he did.

It can be entertaining but can also come off that it is all about me.

Exactly.

I like the celebration on BIG first downs....on EVERY first down, it can come across wrong.

We drafted someone that said he was an entertainer and icon--he's going to celebrate.

I agree. Did anyone see Hangartner grab Cam after his 2nd TD right before Cam was about to do his superman? Cam did the right thing and scratched the celebration and celebrated with his teammates.

Yeah. I wouldn't mind it so much if it was spontaneous---even if it seemed spontaneous. Cam's first down celebration seems just too scripted, and in that sense it just looks kind of lame. You may have seen a Brady, Manning, Montana, Elway or Bradshaw give a fist pump or something of that nature in the moment, but basically their success does/did most of the talking. I don't mind a TD celebration, but first down celebrations should be saved for outstanding plays executed at key moments.

Glad someone agrees....
