McDaniels would support switch to orange
By Lindsay Jones


There’s something about orange.

The Broncos have played their best two homes while wearing those alternate orange jerseys, including yesterday’s 49-29 win against the Kansas City Chiefs.

“I love the orange jerseys,” coach Josh McDaniels said. “I know we’re only allowed to wear them twice in the regular season and once in the preseason, unless we make them our standard uniform.”

So, that begs the question: Why not make the orange jerseys the standard home attire? Why not ditch the navy blues?

“That decision to make them our permanent uniform would come from Pat,” McDaniels said, referring to team owner Pat Bowlen.

McDaniels said he would be in favor of the switch, should Bowlen and Co. be inclined to make a move. I think many fans would agree.

“I wouldn’t mind it at all,” McDaniels said. “I think we get excited, and the whole thing, everything, from when you walk in the locker room and have all the orange jerseys, it looks different. It wouldn’t bother me at all.”

Your turn, Broncos fans: Would you like to see the team wear orange all the time at home?

FYI, the broncos have until February 2011 to notify the league that they are making a perminent uniform change for the 2012 season.

2011 would be the final year of the "predominatly orange jerseys"

I love the orange jerseys! I think keep things the way they are makes wearing the orange jerseys even move enjoyable when they do wear them, but I wouldn't be against a fulltime switch up.

I wish the league would just lift the limit. Rather than having to change primary jersey, just allow teams to wear their alternates however much they want so long as the opposing teams color doesn't conflict.

Love the idea. I've said this for years around here. It makes no sense that the alts aren't the default. Let the navy jerseys be the alts.

Orange has a marketing problem - or did when the Broncos moved away from them in the 90s. Since then, almost all of the other "orange" teams have scrapped their unis, and followed the Broncos into Blue Nike hell. It was groundbreaking when the Broncos changed it, but things have changed. The dolphins, Bears and Bucs all ditched it as a primary color like Denver did.

I think it's a fairly good bet that the Orange Tebow jerseys outsell the blue ones a hell of a lot (from personal experience, the sheer number of radioactively orange brand new jerseys bearing number 15 far outnumber the blue). If so, that's a pretty good argument that the FO will look at.

I disagree it was orange was a marketing problem, but rather everyone already owned an orange Elway jersey. For most people, there was no need to buy another one. The blue made all of us head to the store to update our Elways. Mission accomplished. Now, let's get back to orange and make the blue jersey-blue pants combo the alternate.

I've been wanting primary Orange unis for a loong time. Most of my jerseys are Orange. Maybe Elway can chime in and plant the orange bug in Bowlens ear. The orange jerseys sale more or at least Tebow's ..is a good argument to make to Pat.

I like it, shows that mCd must have done some home work during the bye on Bronco history. He also learned one needs to have his team prepared for division games at home.

I do like the blue tops and white pants, it is very clean, I hate the all blues, those blue pants are ugly and need to be sent to that kid who burned his Cutler jersey.

Does this mean they would have to redesign the away jersey's aren't they just white and blue with minimal orange around the fonts?
