You then have Cotchery, who got popped yesterday while making a first down catch and put the ball down on the ground before celebrating with his teammates. Heath has ~90 catches this year and doesn't seem to feel the need to engage in "look at me" histrionics. Funny how they can hang on when they get hit but Sanders gets a whiff of the safety coming over the middle and loses the football. I guess I shouldn't blame Sanders since those two started playing back when you could hit receivers so they are conditioned to take hits, while Sanders plays in an era where if a safety comes in to make the play there's a 50/50 chance he will get flagged even if it's clean.
The dancing is whatever and I realize complaining about it makes me sound like a grouchy old fart, but if you're going to draw attention to yourself after every good play, expect equal amounts of the attention when you screw the pooch. Hines had his share of his post-catch antics but he was also good at holding on to the ball and generally being reliable. Smoky Holmes was a knucklehead but when he wasn't stoned you could count on him (and BRoeth did as well on the field).
