That said, I am all into our players celebrating when they make a touch down especially when down. I remember people complaining when Kno celebrated when we were being blown out. I don't like being blown out but I like it even less when players give up and that showed me He was still giving it what he had to give and was very much still in the game even though maybe we weren't. So IMO as long as they are still trying I say let them celebrate when they achieve.


      Further on the celebration topic: I miss the old days when multiple players were allowed to celebrate and do dances in the end zone, it probably went to far when they started using props such as telephones, but IMO now we are too far the other way and I would like to see some of that back. It was very entertaining and I think very motivating for the offense and opposing defense.
      Yikes.

      No, thank you. Entertainment like that is for Dancing with the Stars. I hate time being wasted for that crap. Maybe a new rule could be a team opting out of the extra point or two point conversion attempts, take the six and do a routine in the end zone with props.

      I could just see them roll out a float and some dry ice, do their little number and roll it all back in :30. Then during the commercial break the ref. can score the routine and the results revealed before the next kick off.

      If there is no score from the ref. play resumes, but if there is a high score they'll get a close up of the player who scored the TD and he and only he will be allowed to walk onto the playing field for the kickoff without his helmet. The ref will give a signal and a flag will be raised in honor of the routine winning score and the helmet then placed onto the players head via a bungee jumper on a blimp.

      Now that's, Entertainment!!

          It was particularly cool when former Marine Mike Anderson did it.

            For my part, I prefer the Mile High Salute. Unless I am mistaken TD was the first Denver player to use it, and it became the team's celebration during the superbowl years. I can remember Rod Smith, Eddie Mac, TD, and even Elway using it during those years.

            Since the Superbowl years the only players I can recall using it were Peyton Hillis and Lendale White. I do remember MJD using it against us in a Jags vs Broncos game at Invesco though.
            Howard Griffith used to salute quite often, especially after plowing through defenses and escorting TD to the endzone. Clinton Portis used it after scoring in Terrell Davis' final game as a Bronco. Mike Bell also adopted it in his rookie season with us, and I believe Tatum Bell may have used it a time or two but I can't be too sure.

            Not to be nit picky but he initially did it to honor his father who was a military man.

              Thanks for the added info. I knew almost the entire team was doing it back during the superbowl years. I seem to remember even some of the defensive players doing it if they got a pick six or a fumble return for a td.

              I had forgotten about Clinton Portis, Mike Bell, Tatum Bell and even Mike Anderson also using it. Who was the running back they called the stinger? Quentin Griffin? Or something like that? I believe he may have used it once or twice as well.

              I would sincerely love to see it return as the traditional TD celebration for our team. Now if UFgatorphil will just tell Tebow our preferences, we are set..lol.

                Mile High Salute. By. Far.

                I got so tired of seeing them do the "Can't See Me" thing after every catch.

                I mean, it was kinda cool the first time, but they just didn't stop...
