Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz was not a fan of tight end Joseph Fauria’s touchdown dance in the season opener.
However, if Fauria keeps scoring, Schwartz might be the first one to hit up a “Dance Dance Revolution” machine the next time he is at a movie theater.
Fauria hauled in a 5-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Matthew Stafford in the second quarter against Washington. The rookie decided to celebrate his second touchdown reception this season with a rendition of 'N Sync’s dances moves from the video “Bye Bye Bye”. While it was not the best routine, to be fair, it is not like Justin Timberlake has ever scored an NFL touchdown, so it is hard to knock Fauria.
After Fauria celebrated in Week 1, Schwartz said he was not a fan of anything dance-related (shocker):
“I don’t really pay a whole lot attention to it during the … it’s actually on film,” Schwartz told reporters. “And I don’t know if you want that. I mean, there’s a reason I don’t dance at weddings, anywhere else, because of cameras. There are a lot of cameras in NFL games, so I’ll just probably leave it at that.”
If Fauria keeps it up, Schwartz may want his tight end to at least teach him 'The Electric Slide so he will not look awkward at weddings.
Fauria, we salute you:
