Dude, you should never photograph Manning with a lens less than 50mm. Why? He might lean forward and then you'll get pictures like this that make his head look even bigger than it already is:

It shouldn't be that hard. You start with the best uni in the NFL. The team goes back to orange as the primary color.

I like the matte better too. Anyway, hard for a player in full jersey and pants without pads to not look a little dorky.

At the very least the Broncos will once again have one of the more unmistakable home colors.

Reading the article, it sounds like they are all filming this year's DirecTV ads together. Remember last year how Deion played the DirecTV fairy that rescued people from cable or whatever? I think it's continuation. We might be seeing miniature Peyton or something like that this year. Definitely won't hear any jokes about that or anything from Chef/Faider fans. Nope.

The point of the new collar, which Nike calls Flywire, is that it locks the jersey down to the shoulder pads and makes it feel lighter and tighter. They were saying we shouldn't see players jerseys getting caught up in the sides of shoulderpads anymore like this...

http://broncotalk.net/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2008/09/champbailey2.jpg

So I'd imagine the uniforms will look better over pads.

The replica jerseys (Nike calls them "Game" jerseys) do not have flywire. The authentic and in-between models (called "Elite" and "Limited") do. Those models aren't out yet in stores.

I am glad they went back to orange as the primary color. Wish they would of left the glossy sheen to the jersey, and either a solid blue or orange collar.
