At about the 12 second mark, he saves us a penalty.

After the touchdown catch by Thomas, he throws the ball to Decker who is getting ready to alley-oop it back to Thomas for the goalpost slam dunk. Stokely comes in a breaks up the play and almost certainly saves the Broncos a 15 yard unsportsmanlike-like penalty for excessive celebration.

I love the young guys enthusiasm. But, I also love the having the veterans around to let then know when they need to dial it back just a little.

He did that with Marshall too when he wanted to pull that black glove out.

I seem to remember Stokely stopping Brandon Marshall from a stupid celebration. You're right. We need a mix of veterans and young guys...

This is not the first time Stokley has saved a penalty for celebration. Remember back a few years ago when we were playing the Browns back in Cleveland. Brandon Marshall caught a TD in a tight game and he was about to do something stupid when Stokely got in his face and talked him out of it.

Stokley will never have the pure talent of Thomas, but the wisdom and levelheadedness is something he can teach to just about anyone and something that can be the difference maker in a tight game.

I think one time Stokley also stopped Brandon Marshall from doing something that would have caused a penalty after a TD once. Anyone else remember that?

Love Stokes for how he keeps his head in the game. I loved when he caught the game winner against Cincy, he ran down the goal line as long as he could and peeled 4 extra seconds off of the clock.

Well you certainly don't want a guy on the field just because he can stop a celebration penalty. I think the thread title is a little misleading. He's s smart guy but he's a clutch WR in the slot and that's why you want him on the field. I did have some doubts about his durability a few years ago but he seems to be going good right now. Hope he can stay fresh and healthy.

In the Browns game, Marshall was going to do this celebration where he held up a black and white glove for OBama. Stokely talked him out of it.

that's good of Stokley, but I'd rather have him on the field for things like 3rd down conversions; this is where Stokley earns his money.

Well, you can pistol whip me. Didn't see that this was posted previously..... here's what Stokley had to say about it:

"What did I get? I mean, they were mad at me on the sideline for stopping them," Stokley said. "It's tough being a dad sometimes, you know?"

"On B-Marsh's, I knew what he was planning, but it wasn't the right situation (for a 15-yard penalty)," Stokley said. "On this one, the guys didn't even fill me in on that. I didn't know it was coming. I saw it all playing out in the back and I was like, 'What are they doing? They're up to something.' "

Stokley jested that he sent off Marshall into the world by himself, noting that former teammate is now the go-to receiver for the 6-1 Chicago Bears.

"He's doing great on his own," Stokley said. "Now, I've got these other two knuckleheads I've got to mold. These kids, nowadays. You've got to put them in timeout."
