We needed this win. Hopefully this win will pump the team up for next week.

It was very unusual, but I liked it. Very unexpected.

I'm thinking the handshakes were probably decided on to celebrate so that Harrell wouldn't through his back out jumping for a chest bump.

But it was funny. Very professional, which you don't really think of when you think of INT celebrations/excitement.

Handshake and a thank you.. I think something came about in a meeting this week.

BTW.. that was one hell of a read by Woodson on that pick.. and pretty sweet pick for Williams. Overall, even though it wasn't much of a test, this secondary and honest for the most part the front seven played well.

A virtual handshake extended, sure helps when we win the ball control battle.

Nice to see our front 4 finally getting some pressure on the QB. Now we just need to work on fundamental tackling. Missed arm tackles and whiffs on the big hits are killing us! Wrap em up, put em on the ground, and go back to the huddle.

So from now on shaking a hand is cocky, or gay?

I like it. I hate when guys scream and yell and dance. This was "classy" as one of the commentators called it.

Agreed... I thought it spoke of a little dignity in playing the game. Showed they realize they are accountable to each other in the secondary.. good coverage overall allows someone to make a play.

Sorta like the Barry Sanders always handing the ball to the ref and heading for the sideline.. Always thought that was so freaking classy.

That is one of the things that my dad liked most about my childhood idol. Very classy guy.


I know there has been quite a bit of talk about over celebrating over plays that should be celebrated. I wonder if the coaches are sick of seeing it as well and told them if you want to celebrate, do it like a man, not a hyper active kid. Thus, we now see the handshake.


If it was something spontaneous, very cool, but it look choreographed. Which is fine, I think its great either way. I just have to wonder if the coaches had anything to do with it.

I loved the handshakes! It was funny but not show-offy.

It almost came off like it was so classy it was a bit reminiscent of douchbaggery, but they pulled it off well. I liked it a lot though.

Doesn't anyone remember Al Harris doing this last year? Maybe it was chuck but I am almost positive it was harris. Anyways when I saw it then i thought it was awesome and hoped it would transgress into a regular thing like the lambeau leap is for our offense.

Also one of the top reasons I love AJ Hawk. He makes a play and goes back to the huddle - no dance, no shimmy. That's a classy, hard working, blue-collar guy.

I loved Sanders attitude. I am a firm believer in the line, "Act like you have been there before." after a player scores a TD.

All the chest pounding and gyrations for making a tackle or getting a 1st down are lame. Guys you are in the NFL. That is what you are suppose to do. After a big player get your butt back into the huddle and get ready to go again. The fans in the stands will cheer loudly for the big plays. They don't need any assistance.
With that said, the handshake although definitely staged is better than at lot of the other stuff that the players do.

LOL.... "4PackGirl" If you thought that was gay, your husband must be a Sasquatch. Do you live in the Pacific North West? I can not imagine a more manly being than a Sasquatch. I bet there is not one single gay Sasquatch on the planet.

Perhaps it was kind of a ... "We are taking care of business" Jester.

A hand shake... Respect, and a business agreement to commit and take care of business. I like it, I like it a lot.

But Gay.... No. I think not.
