The Blueprint Behind the Colts End Zone TD Celebrations

Does any team in the NFL look like they have more fun than the Indianapolis Colts?

As a unit, the guys just seem to really enjoy being around each other. Combine that with the player’s coach style of Frank Reich, and there are going to be some pretty exuberant moments throughout each season.

This year, the story has been the Colts end zone celebrations as a unit following a big play. Whether it’s a touchdown or defensive takeaway, the dances and picture poses have been appointment TV.

But who is the mastermind of the end zone parties?

We may have found out on The Ride with JMV Tuesday afternoon. Following his two touchdown performance versus the Texans, Zach Pascal called into the show to chat with JMV on the big game. He also said he has choreographed some of the dances.

“We all come up and think about that on Friday’s,” Pascal said. “It’s a cool thing we have going and to also do it in the games. I came up with the ‘Lean With it, Rock With It’. Then T.Y. thought of the one from this past week (against the Texans).”

It’s one thing to be having too much fun and not focusing enough on winning. But for the Colts and their 10-4 record, Indianapolis makes sure to take care of business and then enjoy themselves.

It’s like a work hard, play hard mentality.

“This past weekend was a top-five one in my life,” Pascal added. “With my birthday, being a captain for the week, and then having the game it was just a solid weekend. In our locker room, we just have guys that will do whatever it takes to win. We lean on each other and I could go on all day about what we have in there.”

When free agency rolls around, there have to be players around the NFL who see how much fun the Blue and White have and then think that they wish they were a part of something like that.

Indy may not have the ocean fronts of California or the big bright lights of New York, but it sure does have the right culture with a locker room full of guys that would do anything for one another.
