Grumpy old Stokley says "Noop" to alley-oop

Brandon Stokley is either a savvy veteran leader or just a grumpy old man.

Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports that Stokley put the kibosh on what would have been a pretty nifty TD celebration in the third quarter of the Sunday night game.

After Demaryius Thomas scored on the Saints defense, he handed the football to Eric Decker who positioned himself to toss an "alley-opp" pass to Demaryius so that he could "slam dunk" it over the cross bar of the goal post.

This of course, would have been punished with a 15-yard penalty for a choreographed celebration. Players aren't allowed to do that in the No-Fun-League.

Stokley, who has been around awhile, had the presence of mind to step in and put a stop to the frivolity.

Thomas and Decker were pretty ticked off at the old man when they got back to the sideline. But Stokley is willing to sacrifice popularity for professionalism.

He told Mike Klis "It’s tough being a dad sometimes, you know?" "These kids, nowadays. You’ve got to put them in timeout."
