What makes it worse is when you actually have guys celebrating making "bad" plays. If you tackle someone 8 yards downfield its not a success most times. However, watching joe average LB jump up and make all kinds of stupid motions like he did something is the most absurd thing I have ever seen.
It also adds insult to injury in DEN's case as they are not an effective defense. Any celebrating before the end of the game is quite anoying to most fans.
I agree. Generally, I don't critique the actions and behavior of non-Broncos because I don't have a stake in their actions unless they do something incredible (good or bad).
