Question about old Mile High...

For Christmas I got the Broncos greatest games and I just finished watching the 77 AFC Championship game.  Something caught my eye that I've been wondering about for some time and I'm hoping y'all can help me out.

From inside Old Mile High looking at the south stands on the left side, there is a rectangular space in the wall.  When I was really young I remember there being a band in there.  Am I nuts?  Was there a band that played in a tight spot?  Looking at the old and very grainy video from the game it looks like there could be... I know that in Mile High's last few years there was no band and the space was largely vacant....  But for some reason I could swear there was a band there when I was younger... Perhaps during Zephyr games?  If I am wrong, what was that space for?  Was there a band?  Were they awesome? See what I'm talking about below.

Other questions raised by watching the 77 Champ Game...

1.  Why did the cheerleaders have silver pom poms when we were playing the Raiders?

2.  Why was Raiders painted in the north end zone when the game was at Mile High?  They don't have both teams painted these days and I'm wondering when that stopped.

3.  To end the game, Craig Morton did not take a knee to run out the clock (this is most shocking to me).   As was apparently custom he took the snap and had to fall over and take a sack.  There was no knee to take.  Seriously, the last play of the 77 championship was Craig Morton falling down on his injured hip to seal the win... When did this knee thing come about?
