He's the father of twins now?! Hell, it's a good thing he did get that big a$$ contract.

But I've been noticing some of his premature celebrations on those TD runs as well. They're not anywhere near as cocky or showy as Desean Jackson's, but they can be costly if he doesn't cool it. Then again, I don't really think it's "celebrating", it's more like he starts "relaxing". He normally does it on those long 75+ yard runs where he'll start slowing up around the 5 yard line with a defender still in hot pursuit about a good 5 yards back. Usually it's too late for the defender to do anything before CJ crosses the goal. But my biggest concern is one of these times CJ is gonna slow up a little too soon, underestimating the defender's pursuit, and get caught or even get striped before making what should've been a sure TD.

You're right, the slow-ups are not usually cocky - just looks like he thinks he's already scored when he's still at the 3.
