    Another thing that seems like it should of been a fundamental team rule placed back in training camp. This team is straight up reactionary instead of being sound from top to bottom.

    There are some things that one would think would be; a) commonsense and/or b) unforeseeable as necessary to address when dealing with professional athletes. I guess you address those issues when it is shown that your players a) lack commonsense and/or b) show that they do not know how to act as professionals. For example, I'm sure that in Von Miller's situation, he was told many times prior to his taking drugs ... well, you get the point I'm sure.

    I didn't mind it. It's not as if scoring TDs is a common occurrence for this team. They had it 1st and goal on the 2 and didn't get one. A little exuberance after a sweet play was kind of fun.

    This is up there with cutting Butler for Mesko. Looks/sounds good but there was zero change in productivity (possibly less). Activity does not equal accomplishment. Silly and stupid rules - no flips, no ping-pong, etc. are laughable when you have a 1-4 team that can't block at all, puts little to no pressure on the opposing QB, can't score TDs and took 5 games to get the first turnover. Stop pretending to coach and provide leadership and actually do it. This petty micro-management BS aggravates me.

    He said in which I agree on, is the potential of an injury. Did you guys see the flip, it look like an easy injury.

    I was watching the game with my 8 year old son and he asked me if Sanders was going to get a penalty for showboating?
    I teach my players in the youth football team i coach in, that showboating is not tolerated.
    It's also a penalty in our league.
    He was shocked when i told him there wasn't a penalty for that in the NFL.
    I told him Sanders is just a moron and was lucky he didn't injure himself after that.

    While I personally have no problems with showboating (makes the game more fun), the flipping is an injury risk on a team that is already short-handed.

    Man I thought it was funny to see it happen. I don't see it as an issue this time. If I were to say happen over and over than yea, stop with the flips. But for a team who finally get it's first win and at that point in the game we pushed out lead to two scores ,for the first time all season, I thought it was cool.
