Forget their pursuit of an NFC South title. There’s an even bigger reason to watch the Carolina Panthers’ Week 17 matchup with the Atlanta Falcons Sunday.
A vintage touchdown dance.
“Right now, right here, I’m gonna ask LT for permission to do his endzone celebration if I get in the zone this week,” Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams said Thursday on SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio with LaDainian Tomlinson and John Hansen.
Tomlinson, who owns one of the most recognizable – and low-key – touchdown celebrations in NFL history, happily obliged.
“I don’t mind you guys doing it. Actually, I pay it as a compliment that you guys are doing the celebration. But at the same time, put the hand behind your back, and you gotta finger roll it,” Tomlinson explained. “See, Mike Tolbert thought it was the teapot. There’s no teapot. It’s the finger roll.”
Williams also spoke with Tomlinson and Hansen about the mindset of a running back who operates as part of a backfield committee. Williams, who splits carries with Jonathan Stewart and Tolbert, said that competition between teammates is good for the team as a whole.
