They are rather ugly, but...look at the bright side. With hideous looking uniforms it will be that much easier for those of you who will be rooting for the broncos to fail.

I love them, God forbid they not be black and teal and have a computer generated logo on the helmet.

We will see how we play wearing them.

If we win, I love them.

If we lose, burn them.

Better yet...just pretend it's 1960 and the Super Bowl is just a mere 17 years away. :yayaya:

Something tells me we won't need the uni's to look foolish.

Actually, I'm more optimistic today, I think the potential is there to win 7 games.

i am totally buying one of those jerseys. just not sure which player. Hillis would be my 1st choice, but i am going to wait until after the season with buying a Hillis jersey. if he is used and looks like a focal point of the team, then I will buy one, but if he is phased out and looks like trade bait, i won't.

I think the brown and gold throwback unis look great but I am biased. I will wear my Wyoming Cowboys jersey to the Patriots game. Both the Broncos and the Pokes have rookie head coaches so I guess I am in for a long season. I am cautiously optimistic but I feel both teams will be mediocre at best this year. I was a Cutler fan and still wish him to do well in Chicago except when he plays us. Now I hope coach Mcdonalds will do well in Denver so we will be able to say I'm lovin it.

The uniform colors are bad, but not as bad as the Eagles throwback uni's from a couple of years ago.

However, those socks take the uni's to another level of awful. Was that ever the fashion, where a number of teams wore vertical stripes?

Don't get me wrong here, I love them as well. Hell, I like these uni's better than I like the team's current ones. However, you just know half the gamecalling during these games is going to be spent deriding the throwbacks.

At least, we'll be spared Cornheiser doing it now, unless you're one of the very few still watching PTI

Why Marshall likes the socks, there might be a good reason to wear them.

Why do Zebras have stripes?
The reason I have heard is basically to confuse predators when charging into a herd of zebras. The rapid movement of the black and white stripes somehow makes it harder for the predator to focus on just one animal, increasing the zebras' chances of getting away.:wiggle:

The Broncos and the NFL have tried on numerous occasions to celebrate Marlin Briscoe as the first black starting QB in NFL/AFL history. But they have always done it in "behind the scenes" types of ways.

Marlin did that in 1968, which was also the first season we switched to the Classic D helmet uniform. And Marlin's first appearance was in relief against the Pats at home, which just happens to be the heritage home game this year. And Marlin's only 3 TD pass game came at San Diego that year, who coincidentally we play as our heritage road game this year.

IMO, the Broncos blew a real big opportunity to spread the word about Marlin's significant contribution to the game. If they were wearing those uniforms and had Marlin at both of this years Heritage games, the message would've been spread alot more.

Where you been B? Good to see you on the board again.

And in 1968 the Broncos we wore orange pants for the first time and we also sporting the reddish orange jersey that so many of us would love to have had in our jersey collection.

And of course this was the first year of the D helmet, with the darker royal blue on it.

They would've sold 5 times more throwback product if they sold the 1968 gear then they will selling this stuff.

Anyone who knows me well, knows I will buy a 1960 jersey anyway, but I also know alot of people who won't.
