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.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

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.

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.
