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.

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.


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.

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 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.

meh - i thought it looked a tad gay - not that there's anything wrong with that! ;)


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.

Very gentlemen like almost. I noticed this during the Tampa Bay game too after Woodson returned his pick for a TD. I don't see any reason to be against it. I hope to see more of it actually.

I didn't see it, so I don't know if it was gay. But speaking of gay celebrations:

I thought it was funny. Yes the hand shakes are classy, but the situation they are doing it in, is not your "normal hand shake" enviorment. So in that sense it is different. Its kind of like they are saying "we just beat you, but were not going to be flat out cocky about it, and you can't complain about us because we are just shaking hands" Kind of a swagger.

I thought it was great!

Like some other people mentioned, it spoke volumes about their belief in teamwork.

Charles Woodson in a recent interview after one of his better games this season (I think it was the one he had two INTs) he spoke not of his play, but how it's the whole secondary and the whole defense that makes a play like that possible.

Seems like that attitude has caught on.

Thanks. I downloaded the highlights from NFL.com. Then, I have a program called 'Animation Shop' and uploaded the video. This turns the video into frame by frame images. I just deleted all the frames I didn't want and just saved the handshake part as an animated GIF.


EDIT:
Just found a picture of Tramon and Charles after Woodson's pick.

LOL guys - didn't think my gay reference would be that bigga deal BUT after looking at it several times, i'd say the shake itself isn't gay but the almost "bowing" in conjunction with the shake just smacks of gayness. LOL - god i love yankin y'all's chains - it's FUN!!! ;)
