It's all bull...

On Sirius NFL they were trying to argue old school celebrations like the Icky Shuffle weren't "look at me" celebrations and were different

also, no one knocks Aaron Rodgers for it. Heck, he even got a huge endorsement deal out of it

Cams runs his ass off, often breaking tackles and juking out foes.  after that burst of 0-60 and going down, i bet he can't help but get up and point like that.  you can always turn your head from the tube after every amazing Cam run.

Why is it o.k. for a WR or RB to celebrate a first down, but not a QB? This complaint really is on the level of the stupid towel stuff....

 

because he is a damn qb. rbs and wr might not score every game so they celebrate whenever they can. i just feel instead of celebrating for the 1st focus on the next play and reading the defense. yall act like im trying to take all the fun out. im talking about FIRST DOWNS damn

I think this is a classic clash between the young and the old. When Cam said he wanted to be an entertainer and an icon he wasn't lying or misquoted. He's a showmen, always has been. I love anything that injects personality or uniqueness into the game. The game is about the players. It's about the players we love and the players we hate and celebrations amplify personality.

I love it. He loves it. And he doesn't give a fug that you don't.

I think he's rubbing it in your and Skip fuging Bayless's face as much as the defense. Like when he held it an extra few seconds yesterday. Same as the towel.

I hope you are not suggesting that getting a 1st down isnt as significant as getting a touchdown.  There are many cases where it is more important than scoring.

i just dont think its necessary. i love Cam and i want him to have fun. but its no point of celebrating a 1st down if the drive doesnt end in a touchdown. he is our franchise quarterback so comparing him to what a receiver does doesnt make sense. like i said celebration for touch idc but a first down just isnt worth it to me

Please explain this:

How in the bloody fuging hell would he know if the drive results in a touchdown or not....during the drive?

If Cam Newton scrambles for a 1st down on 3rd &12 or drives through 3-4 300+ lb D-lineman to get a first down, he can POINT in a FIRST DOWN direction. Whether the camera wants to pick him up or not is the camera's choice, and 9/10 he will get picked up. He makes a winning play, he can celebrate. Period.

 

Quit being nitpicky and let the man have fun.
