Don't expect great touchdown dances from the '09 rookie class

Shutdown Corner

The Upper Deck people gathered all the NFL's daisy-fresh rookies together to snap pictures for their rookie cards, and while they were there, they had a touchdown celebration contest. Let's go to the footage.

I see a shocking lack of creativity among this year's crop of rookies. All of the skit-style celebrations with the football as a prop have been done before. So if I had to go with a winner, I'd go with someone from the straight-up dancing category, and there, I think your winner is Ramses Barden(notes) of the Giants. Behind that, I liked Mohammed Massaquoi's worm, with the bonus kick-up at the end. Upper Deck named Knowshon Moreno the winner.

As for the weakest, I'll take Mark Sanchez(notes) and Darius Heyward-Bey. Fortunately for Heyward-Bey, being a Raider, he won't have to worry about finding the end zone frequently.

Gracias, The Zone Blitz.
