His teammates call him "CP" for crowd pleaser. I wonder if he knows some of the guys in our chat call him "VD".
Someone said he was doing the "Feed the Wolf" howl when he hurt himself last week. Is that true?
But the way he celebrates a big play?http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/story/1400 ... i_Dolphins
"Terrible," linebacker Cameron Wake said. "We've got to teach him up, because it's unacceptable."
The demonstrative Davis caused some head-scratching last year when he celebrated an interception return for a touchdown by putting a finger to his lips, as if hushing the crowd. The problem: The game was in Miami.
Last week at Minnesota, Davis made a bone-jarring tackle and reared back with a jubilant scream, then hunched over in pain, clutched his left shoulder and wobbled to the sideline.
"He tried to get up and celebrate," running back Ronnie Brown said with a giggle, "and realized his body wouldn't let him do it."
Davis missed only one play because of a shoulder stinger, which he blamed on the tackle rather than his celebration.
Teammates laugh at his exuberance but love it, calling him "CP" - short for crowd-pleaser. The second-year pro is quick with a smile and a chatterbox on the field, although he talks faster than some can hear. That includes fellow cornerback Jason Allen and secondary coach Todd Bowles.
"I don't think too many people understand what Vontae's saying," Allen said. "One day he was screaming something from across the field, and I asked coach Bowles to translate for me. He said, `I don't know what he said either."'
