Wow!!! 9-1 seasons are great!!! This team is kicking so much azz all we really have to complain about is the approprietness of a sack celebration and a momentary lapse of tackling ability in the secondary.

Life is good right now for the Texans Nation!!!

I've got no problem with anyone getting excited after they make a big play and giving a little celebration as long as they're not taunting with it. Using someone else's celebration flirts with the line of taunting as far as I'm concerned.

Frankly, I didn't even notice his celebration.

You mean like when he taunted Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews as the Packers were whooping that ass on SNF?

I was just saying the juxtaposition made it a little uncomfortable. I generally have no problem with the cheerleaders. I think they're great.

I don't care what they do or when they do it, as long as they win the game.

In this case, had we lost - I'm ok b/c it had special meaning.

Default Re: Down 7 in the 4th, Watt dances after a sack

Everyone agrees that football is a game that is meant to played with emotion and intensity, but heaven help you if you express that emotion in any way. The players are the ones who put their health at risk, yet a lot of fans think it's their place to register their disapproval if they "don't play the right way." Screw that. All of you Church Ladies out there need to lighten up. If other players have a problem with Watt's celebrations, they would do something about it. Also: 9-1.

Watt promised those Berry kids who lost their parents that he would do a dance just for them. It was called "The wheelchair". He did it to bring up the spirits of injured children.

being 9-1 is like it's May on a message board...

I wasn't cool with it then, and I'm still not. I don't care what reason he had. It just looked bad. There's a time and place, and then there's a time and a place. And celebrating when you're losing is not the time or the place.
Well I guess the alternative was him not doing it and having the kids wonder why...

It's not like we were getting blown out at the time. It was a big play at the time.

I don't agree with Rey often but this is right on. It was a big play at a important time in the game. I don't see how anyone could have a problem with it. Now if we were getting blown out or the game was essentially over then and only then is it not kosher to celebrate a good play.

Really a ridiculous thread! Rates right down there with all the "all encompassing" Threads.
