Short answer with no gray area: yes
Long answer: it really depends on the situation. If it's a RB who busts off a 50 yard run in the 4th with less than a minute left putting them in FG range when they are down 2, I have no problem with them celebrating. That's a game changer. Quarterback gets sacked, loses 15 yards? I think they earned a reasonable celebration. When some 4th string jabroni runs for 3 yards in a 28-3 blowout and celebrates as if he scored a game-winning TD in a Super Bowl with some running down the field, flexing, pointing to the crowd, and then moar flexing towards the D, it gets a bit tiresome. LOL, and people wonder why games take almost 3.5 hours.
As odd as it sounds, I don't mind the touchdown celebrations as long as it's within reason. There's nothing wrong with the simple stuff and I'm surprisingly even flexible with -some-creativity. Ocho's putt with the pylon, while it's not something I want to see every week, I can't lie... I laughed at it.
So TD celebrations: keep them short and to the point. I'll even concede the creativity.
sack dance: keep it within reason. There's a difference between taking a QB down for a loss under a yard and knocking them out of first down or FG range
first down strut: you better have just changed the game. otherwise ain't nobody got time for that.
