I'm all for being pumped up on the field...but let's not get over excited for something you are supposed to do anyway. Until then save if for breaking tackles to keep a drive going, a touchdown, or some other spectacular play. Catching a quick out route on 2nd and 6, and running out of bounds for first down is great. When you have history of moving the chains more times than you have dropped passes that would have moved the chains then maybe you can do what you need. I couldn't stand it when 88 did it for the Cowgirls, becuase it was about him every freaking time he touched the ball for a 1st down, and it's killed it for everyone else since then. I don't care if they do it...just not on every single time they make a catch. I'd rather just see them do the celebrating in the endzone.

...and that catch in the picture was a deep ball he went up for against a double team...not some routine first down.

I was conflicted when he did it over and over.

First I was a bit grumpy, but then I figured "Oh well, this guy missed all of last season...had a personal day in preseason THIS year...watches Keshawn Martin straight up owning...and so Jean has some fun in Reliant, in front of real fans in a real game environment, meh...let the big dawg eat. FIRST DOOOWWWNN!!"

The dude is competitive but not focused on his team winning. He is only focused on himself. Its great to celebrate but everything has its limits. TO is a cancer and thank god we never had him on this team. TO spells team with only the "m" and the "e". I never think of going to a game and leaving talking about the players celebrations and wonder if I was entertained enough. But if you want entertainment go watch the WWE or a movie. I will watch football instead and the occasional spike, first down gesture, a bow and anything else that doesn't scream "its all about me."

Isn't TO the guy that wouldn't visit a childrens hospital or something like that? Or was he clubbing baby seals? I cant remember.

Please stop celebrating first downs -- it's beneath a professional. Save it for when and where it counts: the end zone. Please look to #80 for an example. This fan base does not suffer prima donnas kindly.

Keep up the good work, and know that despite the constructive criticism, I am rooting for you to succeed.

Best Regards,

nothing wrong with it IMO

I've got no problem with guys making the first down sign when they make a first down. KW does it all the time. AJ does it. OD has done it... I think.

Does not bother me.

Or how about when your shoe comes off and you are going to need to get off the field? haha

I dont care if a guy signals first down. But if you know your shoe is off just flip the ball to the ref, get your shoe back on and get in the huddle, or get off the field and get your shoe back on.

Heck, it'd be nice to see him do it more often!

At least he didn't get up and spike the ball, only to find out he was never touched down...

Dear Mr. Jean,

Pay no attention to anybody else on this board except for me. I am truly the paragon of intelligence and a foolball wizard, unlike some of the other folks here. You may continue to celebrate only if you are doing well. If you turn into another JJ, the skys will open up and the wrath of TexansTalk will fall upon you. If you doubt this power, see J. Jones career.

sincerely

Mr. Know it All

I will never understand what some people have against football players celebrating a TD or a first down or whatever. They aren't robots made for your entertainment why do you expect them to act like so? I understand being annoyed at celebrations that seem to take forever but who cares if he makes a gesture and then moves on? That **** happens at like every game by a bunch of different players both Texan and other.

I hated AJ's celebration after his big catch... Act like you've been there, AJ... Just put the ball in the refs hands... then walk off the field, drive to airport, fly to St. Louis and start throwing down on Innegan...then signal first down...

That would have officially been the greatest first down celebration of all time, hands down on his face...

I figure if I'm celebrating his making a first down, he might as well, too.

I'm not going to lie. I thought it was corny at first. It looked forced to me. Wasn't going to say he shouldn't do it, it just seemed cheesy.

But the more he does it and the more I hear him talk I realize the guy is just loving the moment. He loves the game and he's thankful for every minute and is just having fun. Im fine with guys just having fun.

Maybe you should tell all the fans to calm down on the Texans first downs if celebration is such an issue because I am sure the fan response plays into player reaction

It would be more tolerable if he did it spontaneously and with emotion.

But he drags it out and holds it like he's posing for a photoshoot, showing up the other team, "Hey! Look at me!"

Every time.

Do not like.
