    Anyone see Chad Johnson's latest TD celebration?

    [​IMG]

    After scoring a TD, he went to the Bengals sideline and grabbed a giant Christmas stocking out from underneath a table and started throwing autographed hats, t-shirts, and footballs to the crowd. Pretty damn funny. Too bad his team lost though.

    That's one thing about Chad Johnson... He's an egotistical WR just like TO, but he doesn't appear to be a cancer to his team like TO.

    What, do people give him a pass on this endzone jerking-whatever because he's not a bad guy/teammate like T.O.? I think his stuff is just as childish and boorish as T.O.'s. Come down on that stuff, Tagliabue, will you? When I see a guy scoring a TD and flipping the ball to the ref like Jim Brown and Barry Sanders...I respect that, and the player a lot more too.

    Crap like that turns the NFL into the WWE.

    Spike the ball, high five your teamates, even dunk the ball over the FG posts, or as previously mentioned, have a little humility like you've been there before, and just hand the ball to the ref and run off the field.

    Chad doesn't hurt his team with his antics so I think it's great. Plus, who wouldn't want free autographed stuff?

    I don't

    Stuff like that drawes attention to yourself ... "it's about me" .. attitude.
    hey CJ, it took 10 other guys to make that TD .... not just you.
    That's your job to catch the ball .... so shut up and just do your job and
    remember there were 52 other guys and awhole bunch of coaches that
    made that TD possible.

    That's one thing I love about Marvin Harrison. He's scored more TD's then any of the active NFL players yet has never pulled a TO/CJ. Right when he hits the endzone he gives the official the ball and hugs his teamates.

    Yeah, Marvin would have made a great Patriot :)

    Seriously, back to Chad, although he is funny and not nearly the cancer that TO is, there is something wrong with a guy who can celebrate personal achievements while his team loses. He remeinds me of MaGahee, who after blowing a 21-0 lead in the fourth quarter said he was satisfied, he got another hundred yards.

    Yeah, well, fine. I'm sure your teammates are very happy for you. About as happy as Chad's teammates were when he sent Steeler DBs Pepto Bismol before a game.

    Honestly, I don't find Chad's antics as bad as Moss' wiping his butt on the goal post or some of the stuff TO has done. I find some of it kinda funny, like the Riverdance, the proposal and some of his other antics. He doesn't do it to get back at other teams, and seriously, if you don't want him to celebrate on you, keep him out of the end zone, like Cleveland did after the pepto incident. I find nothing wrong with CJ, his celebrations or bravado. I find myself waiting to see if he can top himself, since I think its more in good fun than anything.

    i totally agree. CJ is a great WR... and its all in good fun like aldogg said. its not like he is flicking off the crowd when he is loseing like plummer, or danceing in the star and makeing light of his team like TO... its just fun.

    I don't see the harm in celebrating. Just be careful of looking like an @$$ if your team loses...it is like a risk that could backfire on you.

    Barry Sanders was class...Marvin Harrison for the most part was class...T.O. was class-less...Mike Irvin was just an @$$...

    Notice how when the Patriots score they celebrate TOGETHER?

    Notice how some of those other superstars celebrate ALONE?

    I love our team.

    And the QB has to throw it, the RB has to sell the play-action, the TE has to block it, the LT, LG, C, RG, RT have to block it.

    The coaching staff has to call it.

    This is why the Patriots are different than some of these other teams.

    JR4 is right. He obviously understands this and perhaps some others here do not.

    Giving away free (expensive) stuff to the fans after walking back to the bench is OK in my book.

    Egotisical ? Maybe. But I've seen hundreds worse displays of ego in the NFL.

    That's probably the best way to look at it.

    Its all about entertainment. There's no way you can tell me Chad Johnson isn't entertaining. If he celebrates like that when his team is down big then its one thing, but early in the game on a TD that put his team up (in a game they honestly should have won).....I see nothing wrong with it.

    And by the way....don't try and put it like our players don't celebrate. Remember all the TO mocking our guys did during the last Super Bowl?

    I enjoy watching Chad Johnson do his thing. And as Zuma said, at the same time, I'm glad the Patriots don't do it.

    The Patriots DO celebrate. But if you notice, they do it as a group.

    Some of the individual intros at the SB's are entertaining too. But the Pats revolutionized (at least for some) the symbolism of team before SB 36. No dance or schtick ever sent chills down millions of spines as what the Pats did with their simple and strong message of group dynamics.

    I repeat. I love our team. And I love what the Patriots represent.

    This brings up an interesting question. You all claim our Patriots are all team. Explain every time Hobbs makes so much as a tackle, he jumps up and celebrates like he won the super bowl? No teammates around, just him. Is that acceptable? I guarantee he's had more tackles than Johnson has had tds.

    Big difference between Ellis and Chad. I don't think the celebrations are similar...at all.

    You're right...Hobbs will do the dance after making a tackle after a 15 yard completion. Johnson only does it after scoring 6 points.

    One is spontaneous exhuberance, the other is calculated, coordinated, planned and choreographed.

    Like the difference between pre-medidated and not pre-meditated. You can put Branch and Givens in the same category.

    Hobbs, himself, was asked about this last week and sheepishly said he had no idea he was doing it, it was momentary excitement and that it was a surprise when he saw video of himself doing it.

    I guarantee you Chad Johnson, T.O., Joe Horn aren't similarly clueless.

    Yes...I think Ellis is excited and it's a spur of the moment kind of thing. Chad has his thing planned beforehand...entertainment.
