    Act like you been there before.......

    What I mean by this is very simple, it can be explained in two words.........Barry Sanders. This guy played football like it should be played in a time when every player playing now has to show his ass after every play. I mean you sack the q.b., sweet why dance around like you just won the lottery or you score a touchdown, lets celebrate we cured CANCER. Come on guys, look back at Mr. Sanders, he scored a touchdown and he scored plenty, he hands the ball to the referee and makes his way to the sideline...........Pure class. Or maybe I'm just getting old...........;-)

    I get tired of seeing all the dancing and that ridiculous "stomp walk" that defensive players do after a good tackle or a sack.

    I can handle an impromptu celebration, especially after a go-ahead TD in a tight game, or something like that. But otherwise -- the guy is just doing his job. The QB's job is to pass, hand off, or run the ball. The receiver's & back's jobs are to take the ball to the end zone. The defense's job is to stop any and all of the above. Absent special circumstances -- if you've just done your job... don't make a huge deal out of it.

    Lately, I'm more amazed at the guys losing helmets. In one case yesterday, someone actually lost his helmet in one play, went through the huddle without it, and lined up for the next play, still without the helmet. I don't buy losing it... but OK. (When I played ball in HS, failing to have all your gear snapped properly was a foul, as I recall...) The other 10 guys in the huddle didn't notice one of them wasn't like the others? Then the guys on the other team didn't notice there was a problem? SOMEBODY should have been penalized for that!

    Like you said , act like you scored (or had a sack, etc.) before and you plan on doing it again.
