When it comes to TD celebrations, there's old school, and then there's really old school

Vinny Testaverde passed for just 153 yards in going 13-of-28 Sunday as his Carolina Panthers went down to the Atlanta Falcons 20 to 13.

Despite a sore right Achilles tendon, the old hand (Testaverde turns 44 on Tuesday) was able to play, but failed to put his team into the end zone. The only TD the Panthers mustered was a 27-yard fumble return by cornerback Ken Lucas.

That's too bad. It would've been fun to see Testaverde run a QB sneak from the one-yard line, break the plane of the end zone, and launch into his "hopelessly out-of-date" touchdown dance, as shown here during his days with the New York Jets.
