Having suffered through what was, without question, one of the worst Broncos seasons in our lifetime, we were simply hoping that the team would just go gently into that good night against the Chargers. Not so with this clearly optimistic crew going by the name of Denver Broncos Stampede Drumline.

Hmm... perhaps this was simply their version of a New Orleans-style send off for the team.
