It's time for the Broncos to bring back the Mile High Salute

Terrell Davis made the Mile High Salute famous. He and his Broncos team mates of the Super Bowl era used the gesture to celebrate and as a way to honor our troops.

Since then it's made occasional appearances. Peyton Hillis adopted it, Tim Tebow did, too. But the 2012 Broncos haven't embraced the Broncos' traditional TD celebration and fans are noticing. It's a real shame, too. Mile High would go positively nuts it Peyton Manning were to bust one out.

I believe we have seen Eric Decker do it, but not Demaryius Thomas. Not even Knowshon has. Maybe it's part of the reason that, despite the Broncos rather shocking success in 2012, Broncos Country doesn't seem quite as fired up as last season.

It's high time that the Orange and Blue bring back the Mile High Salute and treat Mile High fans to a healthy dose of good old-fashioned tradition when the Broncos come home to face the Browns and Chiefs to close out the season.

Wins are nice, but here in Broncos Country we like to salute the past.
