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

He's hardly played football the past year, I think he wanted to give people the message saying "I'm back". I have no problem with what he did. AJ is AJ and AJ is a badass.

That's my take on it Rey. It's not all TO excess "look at me" kinda thing. It's just a quick simple gesture. If it becomes his trademark "celebration" I'm more than cool with it.

Regarding the first part of you paragraph I think it's spot on. From all I've seen and heard it's just an expression. I think the man has humility and I don't think we'll have to be concerned about him ever being a showboater or a hotdog kinda guy.

Guess we'll have to see how it plays out long term but I don't see it changing. He's very thankful for the opportunity he's been given.

I'd say AJ has earned the right. He also does it relatively infrequently. Celebration is like salt. A little bit is good. A lot ruins the meal.

Me love me some #80. I wouldn't change a thing there.

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.
This too.

This has to be the guy behind me who was yelling "eat a steak" every single time a Foster run went for 3 yards, like a 3 yard run is unheard of.

Get over it. Be happy the Texans got another guy who can actually catch first downs.

Why would you come under fire from me for expressing your opinion? You expressed yours, without diminishing mine. That's good in my book.

Almost every time Johnson hauls in a bomb he does that "stare into the crowd" deal... I love it... "yah, i'm a bad ass..."

The game was made to have fun. Shouldn't be a problem unless he gets flagged or something.

Kevin Walter does it all the time as well. It's a harmless display of enthusiasm and emotion. I wouldn't have a problem with it unless they start to take it to the extreme -- doing what Antonio Smith does with his ninja move on defense but the offensive version of that. That to me is a little too much. I'm surprised the officials haven't flagged him yet for excessive celebration.

Antonio gets a pass because his celebration is entertaining.
