We had to kick off deeper back and Atlanta got a return. Had something ignorant happened, like special teams breakdown and Atl returned the kick for points, it would have been TOTALY STUPID!

I don't want to give the opponent a FREE opportunity for ANY points whatsoever.

But it could have. Are you OK with letting our players all do this after every TD?

Just because we dodged a bullet this time doesn't mean it wasn't stupid.

And Morestead still kicked the ball all the way inside the 5 yd line. Dude is a monster kicker.

It was a great show of support to the fans of New Orleans. $12,500 divided by 52 players and how many coaches is what? I think he'll be OK. I do agree with Danno however, it was not a good decision so early in the game. As long as he doesn't shoot fireworks when we play the Panthers, we'll chalk it up to lesson learned.

I will guarantee you that NONE of the coaches were happy about that crap.

And it wasn't a show of anything other than self-promotion. Another thing I will guarantee is that is the last time he ever does anything like that under Sean Payton's watch.

Dumb, dumb, dumb, STUPID.

Oddly, that was the only "celebration" I've ever really seen PT do.

You know one thing I don't understand is many or most end zone celebrations use the football as a prop. Spiking the ball, dunking the ball, spinning the ball, etc. How come those are not similarly called?

Because they aren't illegal.

Using a prop other than the football is a 15 yard penalty and every player knows it.

I think they need to re-word the rule. They said using the football as a prop. But the bow was the 'prop'.

Well, you guys are making me rethink PT's celebration. But, I want more end zones dances. Colston and Sproles need more end zone personality. But, not at the cost of penalties.
