us, live here at civic center park, i'm karen leigh. could not have asked for anything better today. >> hi, karen. i'm trying to hear you. but i can't. that's how loud it is. you know what, karen, it is the celebration that the denver broncos won super bowl 50, the monster, colorado's own playing behind us. karen, we've got tens of thousands of fans here right now. but as we saw this morning, they were showing up at 4:30 to get a spot out here. it's been great. >> yeah, you can't blame them because everyone wants to be up front, but we can see the people all the way back to the capitol building back there. it's fantastic. the crowds turned out to welcome the broncos back to denver yesterday, the team passed the lombardi trophy off as they got off the plane at dia and hopped on board a bus to head back to broncos headquarters.
the team when they arrived in centennial: let's talk about the scene out here and the plan is to have all of the players, coaches, staff and their wives, right here in civic center park in just about two hours. already had great bands performing. right now, we've got big head todd and the monsters, 303 is coming out later. and i tell you, they love their broncos out here and they also love the music. >> broncos headquarter as for us, and jamie, i know you've been covering the fans so much today. >>reporter: yeah, we have, karen, and i want to tell you the at training facility here, we just saw ten giant tour buses with state patrol escort, and i think it's safe to say that the broncos are headed to the big victory parade here at the training facility, they held the end of the season press conference, gary kubiak and john elway, taking center stage. now, both of those men giving praise obviously to the defense, elway saying they rode their
championship and while it's not set in el stone, elway said they are one of the best defense teams ever. there is no time line, and it's all up to manning. >> you know, i think that it's important for him, i mean, the key thing is for him to want to come back. i mean, that's why it's up to us, it's not really what we want to do. the important thing is it's going to be his decision. and so where we get a chance to sit down and talk to him, where he is in his career, what he thinks he can do, what he wants to do from here on out. and so, in talking about retirement, retirement is always hard. you can but touch that line and crossing that line -- up to that line and crossing that line, saying i am moving on, that is a very -- even if the first 99% are easy to get there, that last
that's why he's got to have the time he needs. it's basically going to be up to him. >>reporter: now, looking towards the future, elway said that he is -- his number one goal is to keep the defense in as tact as possible. so that defensive team is the number one goal. already looking at free agency for next season and again, broncos tour buses headed down towards the parade, karen, and jim, back to you. all right. jamie, thank you so much. so exciting out here. we want to talk a little bit about the parade, too, gyp, the parade set to kick off at 71 and can and wynkoop. -- 17th and wynkoop. civic center park. broncos are going to go inside of the city and county building before they return to the stage for the rally, we have teams all along the route for you. >> one thing we saw with the

civic center park, if we can get down to justin, i'm sure the wild crowd he has around him, justin. >>reporter: hey, karen, we're at 13th and broadway, right now, and you can see the fans are piling in pretty quickly here. don't forget, it is a weekday, it is tuesday outside. so either folks got the day off or they're playing hooky, you've dedication. we're hoping that when the parade gets going, it will come around this corner, and then when it heads west on 13th, maybe the players will get close enough to the mobile weather lap, we get to shake a couple of hands. but just the gear alone down here is entertaining to look at. i saw a lombardi trophy made out of ice a second ago. i a couple of guys with this one is for pat shirt, i saw a jake this snake t-shirt, that had to -- jake the snake t-shirt. that had to be the coolest t-shirt. it's getting pretty busy now, especially where we are. there's a couple of gaps, you can find room and hopefully get
how are you guys doing? are you ready for this parade? >> [ cheering ] . >>reporter: is everybody playing hooky, or did you get the day off of work. >> hooky. >>reporter: that's what i like to here. we're playing, hooky, too, a good day to be at work here on cbs 4. jim and karen, back to you. >> justin, thanks very much. got to be a great day to be a meteorologist, the day where a lot of people come up to you and thank you. >> yes, give you a big hug. you're the best. >> oh, man, justin and ed, we love you guys. well, we are just getting started. with our spectacular coverage on a great day here for the city of denver and the state of colorado. well deserved. 18 year; right. >> the absence of pat bowlen who
now, and we know how much the broncos fans love him. they respect him. they have given us this family, pat bowlen us has given us this championship team. he couldn't be more loved. >> the special moment with john elway. we knew that would come out of john's mouth, everybody was hoping it would. certainly, a spectacular and very special moment for people who sl been lucky enough to follow this franchise over the decades. >> right. >> under the ownership of pat bowlen. pat has always been about one thing. winning, that's why the players love to come here and play for him and so many people here in this city have rallied around the bowlen family during his battle with alzheimer's. >> you know, the players love playing for this organization, family. and they just had some really great kind words to talk about >>reporter: karen, and jim,
someone out in santa clara and talked with the team, they were always talking about pat bowlen, his influence on the broncos, even in his absence. >> unfortunately, of course, mr. b. could not be at the super bowl, but his family did l travel, his wife anna bell watched the game from santa clara, she was there when they presented the trophy afterwards. she watched the game with former bronco rod smith. it was an emotional time to watch the game with her. he wanted her to know how much the bowlens have meant to this team. to let the team do what they do best. allowed them to run this franchise, they spend the money, they bring the good players, and that's what leads to a super bowl. and elway and ellis both had nice things to say obviously about mr. b. after the big one. >> this one is for pat. given us the opportunity, known pat since 84, he's the only thing that is sad, he's not
thoem him and let him give it a big squeeze. >> it's emotional. well deserved for sxhe the family -- he and the family. it's a shame he couldn't be here. he would have loved this team, i'll tell you that right now. and the other thing i would tell you is he would have been very confident going into today's game, he really would have been. he would have seen -- i just know him, he would have seen what a special group this was. and how they carried therngsz how they believed in each other -- themselves, how they believed in each other and how they willed themselves to this championship. and just, you know, he should be here. that's all i can tell you. he really should be here. >>reporter: and i had a chance to spend time with joe ellis during the week leading touch the super bowl. he said pat bowlen knew his legacy should be defined by super bowl and super bowl champions. they've won 3 of the super bowls.
since mr. bowlen took over the broncos, it starts at the top and goes down the from there. he has done a great job with a franchise. there are franchises out there, they're there as a business. it's obviously a business for the bowlen, but he wants to win. >>reporter: he wants to win, his family wants to win and every single player we talked to says this was for pat and they did just that. jim and karen a lot of excitement for the bowlen family here, all of the fans are excited to see the player, as well, a good game for the bowlen family. >> spectacular. day, anna bell and the rest of the family will be out here today. karen, one thing about pat is he wanted to go out and get the smartest football people and let them do their jobs. tell me what you need to win, how much money do we need to sign certain players, after that, you do the rest. and i'm not going to mention names, jerry jones, owners who
goes on on the football side, sometimes it doesn't work out too well. obviously, pat created a culture where the smart people could do their thing, and it's paid off. >> yeah, they always say that's hire brilliant people around you and do what they do, they get to be brilliant with their own talents. broncos fans are not been disappointed. this craziness. we hope we can find her and get to her. are you there? >>reporter: hello. >> we're looking for -- we're looking for britt. . >> a great look at the crowd out there today, hundreds of thousands of people. >> we're going to find britt here in a couple of minutes. she's so little, she is hard to
right now, we want to find out, talk more about this. i don't know how we got so lucky. a perfect ending to the great year so far, this weather. >> no, kidding, yeah, it's kind of been on a roll, in san francisco, great weather for the super bowl, and that has translated here into colorado. take a look at this shot, the library cam, you see all of the folks down here in civic center park. and when everybody else is on the parade route, gets to that point, this place is going to be jam packed, they're expecting at least a million people down there. we're at 50 degrees right now. and thankfully, look at the wind, there's a little breeze going south-southeast at 6 miles per hour. but all the wind today, etch has stayed on the west side of town. here's the broncos parade forecast. we should be about 56 degrees, when we kick everything off, in the mid 50s throughout the entire day. chalked full of sunshine today. couldn't ask for a better day and here's the wind today. it's going 27 at evergreen, 22
so we hit the jackpot there as well. here's a look at the satellite and radar together. hardly a cloud in the sky. over the entire state of colorado. drier, warmer air, just translating in. the reason for that, big old ridge of high pressure, a super, super ridge, if you will, just right over the area. from colorado all the way back to california. and that's bringing in some warm weather, it will stick around for a while. across the state today, in the 50s and 60s out east. 30s and 40s in the mountains. looking good. so here's the break down for us today, of course, a high of 56. sunny, breezy is, low tonight about 30. tomorrow, it gets better. we're looking at 64. a spring-like feel tomorrow. can and we keep it in the upper 50s to near 60. mostly sunny skies rolling all the way through the weekend. jim and karen, i group up in colorado, down in pueblo, and we grew up just loving the broncos, i can't tell you, although i'm not down there with you, i can just feel the excitement down there.

welcome back to the victory parade and rally civic center park, where we're anticipating some million people are going to be coming down here, the helicopter flying over the city, the city that is lined and packed with broncos fans. i'm not sure there's one person on one floor and one of those rooms, not down here right now. i think everybody in this city is lining the streets right now. and downtown denver. it sure looks like it, doesn't it? >> a lot of empty restaurants, everybody is out trying to get a view of the player, the parade is due to get going at noon today. karen, wouldn't be surprised that these crowds that things are a little bit late. they always build in pad for a big civic event like this, but who cares, the weather is gorgeous, behind us right now, a reminder of what an incredible
playing dave logans call on some of the big plays that the broncos 2015 season. and as we follow along with dave in some of the plays, we realize there were some rough patches. >> yeah. >> you know, they struggled to get by oakland one time, they lost to the raiders, the next time. so it's only made it all the more sweet to be at this point right now, because it did not come easy this year. >> no, we didn't score many points, you know, our kicker, brandon mcmanus saved us a lot of times and we were curious, they kept saying defenses win teams, they win championships, but there were times when we were like questioning the defense is going to show up. but they did. they showed up when it mattered most. and won those championship games. >> going into the season, peyton manning during the first three years here, threw for 15,000 yards.
and peyton's arm that was guiding the offense. we didn't have that year, not only did we have that, but a lot of types the rung game couldn't -- times the running game couldn't get going. it came down to to defense on many of the sundays, and certainly if the super bowl. but the orange rush, was up to the task. >> yeah, it was incredible. down there, in all of the masses, we have reporters everywhere, right now, we want to get to allen and find out who he's talking to and what type of cheer he's leading down there right now. >>reporter: well, it's awesome, karen, i tell you what, if you want to be out here live, groouf got to get out gsh you've got to get out here early, right. >> yes. >>reporter: are you ready to yell for this. >> yes. >>reporter: you got here at when. >> 8:00 o'clock. >>reporter: your teachers are calling me now, wondering where you are. you're not going back, are you. >> nope. >>reporter: all right. are you ready? are you ready, guys? >> yes. >>reporter: are you ready?
