What do Denver Bronco fans chant after big plays?

As I am watching the Broncos and the Jets play right now I always hear the Bronco fans chanting something after big plays and I can't for the life of me figure out what it is. It almost sounds like they're spelling something but I don't know and it has been bugging me for years.

Even Google isn't helping me...can someone explain to me what they chant??

Are you referring to incomplete passes by the visiting team? For that, they chant "In. Com. Plete,", followed on the sound system by a Sad Trombone.

That might be it...it doesn't seem to be consistent as to when they actually say whatever it is they say. Although that would make sense because I hear it a lot on third downs, which are passing downs, and it is three syllables

Thank you! That drives me bonkers every time I hear it, but I'm never in a position to Google it when I'm thinking out it...

Wouldn't they have to do it after almost ALL of Tebow's passes?

Only problem is that I never heard the trombone thing....I'll have to wait until maybe another Bronco game comes on

Son of a gun! I always thought it was TAKE-A-SEAT! Because it's fourth down...
