    Stop Celebrating EVERY Tackle Players

    I think LSU has consistantly had some of the best defensive players for the last few years. I also notice they celebrate after damn near EVERY play. Much more than other teams. Once in a while its understandable and even required IMO. Too much is too much. Am I the only one that notices this.

    This is one of the reasons I've all but lost interest in American football. Especially at the NFL level, far too much "ohh look at me! did you see what I just did?" mindset. Know what you just did? Your job. The same job the other ten lads on the field are expecting you to do. Now how about you get your ass back in the huddle and get ready to do it again instead of fawking about.

    BOOM I cant wait to hear what Vette says about this.

    My coach told one of our wannabe stars being a leader on the field does not just mean being the loudest person on the field.

    That is an excellent quote.

    Re: Stop Celebrating EVERY Tackle Players

    I never saw Dick Butkus celebrate a tackle ... not one time. And yet he remains, in my opinion, the greatest defensive player to ever play the game.

    In 1970, the New York Times asked 22 NFL head coaches to name five players they would pick to start a team. More chose Butkus than any other player.

    "You mention his name, my body starts aching," said Sanders, a Hall of Fame tight end.
    In one memorable game at Soldier Field, Sanders hit team mate Buffone square in the chops with a forearm on a crackback block, knocking out three of Buffone's teeth. When Buffone came back to the sideline, bleeding profusely, Butkus wanted to know who was responsible.

    Later in the game, when Sanders came across the middle with his eyes on a pass, Butkus drilled him in his chest, laying him out.

    "Cold-cocked me," Sanders said. "Hardest I ever was hit."

    In another game at Tiger Stadium, the Lions tried playing an I-formation against the Bears. Before the game was through, Butkus had knocked every member of the Lions' "I" — center, quarterback, fullback and halfback — out of the game.

    Lions running back Altie Taylor once saw Butkus charging at him full speed and stepped out of bounds before he could be hit. This so angered Butkus that he kept chasing Taylor out of bounds. In fact, he chased him clear into the stands at Soldier Field.

    When Taylor finally got back to the huddle, he told teammate Charlie Sanders, "That man's crazy."

    When asked about the post-tackle celebrations Butkus asked "... what are they celebrating when all they did was what they were supposed to do".

    I would say that pretty much sums up my feelings on the subject. Let your actions speak for you.... not your antics.

    Much Respect,

    sadly guys its all about that dollar. these fools are told to do this shit cuz that one extra run on sports center or highlight on the late night news could get them that next contract or endorsment deal. he biggest example of this is that fag T.O. he honestly was a decent wr and a genetic freak. but his antics made him maybe the most popular wr of this generation.
    Stay consistent!

    I really really dislike LSU and I agree with your post. At the same time I do appreciate celebrating and excitement. To me, college athletics have a quality of pride not seen in professional sports and the celebrations and enthusiasm display their pride for their school and sport. Yes there is overkill but love what you do and do what you love. Boomer Sooner!!!

    What about jack lambert? He was a mean sob with four Super Bowl rings in ten years. They didn't call it the steal curtain for nothing. Dick did a show on espn a few years back. He was coaching a high school football team it was my hs. Called beyond the glory. That was a yet after I graduated since then he's opened up a few restaurants in Pittsburgh.

    All that showboating, chicken dancing and behaving like a fool turned me off from football long ago.

    Just as bad if not worse is that ridiculous hair protruding from their helmets. Grown men at the salon getting their weave for Monday Night Football: beyond queer.

    Lol so your me telling there next contract depends only on how much air time they get on tv? And t.o. is broke as hell, he needs money that's why he's trying to get back in the NFL.so your argument doesn't make any sense

    Nice post. He was indeed a manimal. I have had the luxury of living in an area he called home and working at a business one of his best friends owns so I have met him many a time. Cool dude.

    LT was crazy good... thats the kind of guy who you never know if he would have been BETTER if he didn't do all the coke & drugs or he was better BECAUSE the coke & drugs made him a nut-job who didn't care about his body and just used it as a projectile over and over.
