Believe it folks!

http://blog.denverbroncos.com/denverbroncos/2009/03/24/1960-uniforms-twice/

I’ve noticed on the message boards and in the comments that many of you are wondering if the Broncos will don their “throwback” jerseys any time this season — the 50th anniversary of the team and the AFL.

Well, it has just been formally announced from the NFL Annual Meeting in Dana Point, Calif., that the original eight AFL teams — the Buffalo Bills, Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs (then the Dallas Texans), New England Patriots (then the Boston Patriots), New York Jets (then the Titans of New York), Oakland Raiders, San Diego Chargers and Tennessee Titans (then the Houston Oilers) — will play head-to-head in one home and one away “Legacy Games” to honor the anniversary.

As a part of those games, the teams will each wear their original jerseys. That means the Broncos will don their 1960 jersey — a brown and yellow uniform with a brown helmet — twice.

As far as the other AFC West teams go, the Chiefs will don their 1962 duds: a red and white uniform with a red helmet featuring an outline of the state of Texas. The Chargers will sport their 1963 jersey: white pants with a yellow bolt down the legs. The Raiders will wear their 1963 threads as well: a white (away) jersey that features silver numbers outlined in black, and a silver helmet with the original Raiders logo.


Unreal! I cannot believe the Broncos have agreed to wear these ugly freakin uni's TWICE!!!! Flame away!! ROFL!

I wish the Broncos would return to their second uniforms - after the brown and yellow ones, but before the "D" ones... with the bucking broncos with the star on it's eye... nice.

Our current uniforms are gawdy... our D uniforms were a little tacky. I like the "sickly" pale orange helmet, and the throw backs.

I think there should be six games set aside each year for each of the throwback jerseys and the Orange alternate jersey (homw/away).

Perhaps the orange away jerseys would work better keeping the blue outline on the Bronco.

B-Love
03-24-2009, 01:59 PM
The MNF doubleheader will have all 4 teams in AFL throwbacks, and I heard that they will have two weekends where all 8 teams will wear them at the same time.

So since we do not play the Jets or Titans next year, are we to assume we open against the Dallas Texans, er the Chiefs.

That would make the Jets home opener against the Titans, er the Oilers with the Jets wearing Titans uniforms themselves.

Whew!

B-Love
03-24-2009, 02:02 PM
The opening doubleheader will have the Bills in 1965 duds vs the Pats and later the Raiders vs the Chargers.

That leaves the other 4 above.

The Broncos only play the Chiefs and the Titans do play the Jets. So that would be my guess.

On Sunday it will be the Titans wearing Oilers duds vs the Jets wearing New York Totans uniforms playing in the state of New Jersey.

My guess is we'll play at Arrowhead opening day. We'll see.

Really, the socks make the uni. Shear genius. Who cares if the Broncos were too poor to field a real jersey, they made do with what they had.

IMHO, it shows just how far this franchise came, against tremendous odds.

The game was played in a time when overt colors were for homos. America used to stand for something.

Meh, I just wish it had some sort of semblance to the Denver Broncos look. I dunno if the league mandated that they wear the unis from their inaugural year. If not, they made a mistake in not wearing the garbs they sported during the 75th anniversary season.

That is EXACTLY what they remind me of. Remember these are the uniforms that culminated in a mob/Nazi-style mass burning of them. Gross, but at least I will be one of those guys that can say "I remember when the Broncos played in vertical striped socks." Ha! In your face, old timers! :~ohyah!:

The Broncos adopted the Classic Broncos look with Lou Saban in 1967. In 1967 there was some debate over what the helmet logo was going to be so the Broncos played 1967 with plain Royal Blue helmets.

In 1968 Saban settled on the classic design and helmet logo that the Broncos wore until 1996.

Since the Broncos switched to that uni in 1968, and they were always looking to pimp Marlin Briscoe as the first Black QB to start ever, then why wouldn't they wear the 1968 unis in tribute to Marlin??

That is what the Broncos should've done. 1968 Marlin Briscoe jersies.

They had no choice, it had to be the initial years uni's. You really think they wanted to wear these things? No way.

I'm going to really dig watching the team in those colors for a couple of games. So what if the uniform is ugly, it's not permanent, it think its going to be awesome to see.

I think their gonna be great. You have to admit that football unis today are so crazy (xlf for example) that this yellow gold and brown look with the stripped socks will actually look unique.

It's about remembering how far we've come. Once a team with castoffs, we had second hand uniforms, our front office was a Quonset hut, our head coach was a CFL exile previously banned from the league for gambling and our team played in a rehashed baseball field. Now we're one of the upper tier (well it depends on who you ask) franchises in sports with a nice stadium, our own practice facility with six AFC championships and two NFL championships.

Thats what I thought at first but then I read (check out the early part of the thread) that the other original AFC teams arent wearing their 1960 uniforms.
