Love that we're going back to Orange, it's the way it should be. But I'd rather have the Brown 1960 as our alts, we need vertical stripes twice a year!

Love this. I bought an orange Clady two years ago, and am obviously loving this.


As for alternate, here would be my choices, if it were up to me:
(1) Blue jersey with blue pants
or
(2) 60's throwbacks with the super socks


I doubt we're getting the blue pants to go with the blue jerseys. Sad stuff, although I know a lot of people here hated them. I thought they were pretty nifty.

Hasn't Nike and the NFL publicly stated that in 2012 there will be new designs for teams by Nike?

If that's so we wouldn't be switching to our orange alternates but Nike would be using an orange design for our new jerseys?

This is a step in the right direction to the Broncos' heritage so many of us grew up with ... now if the team would get rid of "Invesco Field @ Mile High" (which isn't grammatically correct in the first place) and call the stadium "Mile High" that would make me even happier.

From what I understand, they won the contract to make uniforms, but have no say in design.

Best seasons? Outside of the two super bowls (one won while wearing the whites, which I'll conceed are pretty classy) and 2005, the blues have brought nothing but 8-8 or worse seasons. It's not intimidating either because most of the league wears similar colors to that...if anything, they are a cliche.

I'm glad it's more about the players than the uni's because if it was all about the threads, I would've been gone after 1996.

One of the last questions was a plea for the return of the Orange jerseys. Coach Fox tried to tell the questioner that he didn't know if they would wear them against the Raiders (http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/teams/oakland-raiders) in the season opener on Monday Night Football and he said, "I don't know that orange jerseys would make a difference in the outcome of the game. I'd like to think we will win in the Blue or white uniforms. We are in a uniform transition period and these things take time. I'm not sure which games we will be wearing orange, but look for them to return in 2012 for sure."

youre right, the fact that a bring back broncos orange website and massive fan/twitter bomb just happened to occur shortly after mcdaniels made the comments he wants to see orange become permanent is a coincidence..

there has likely been fans that never, ever liked the blue (they went blue when i was in 3rd grade i think, a kid named joel made a joke to me about they are so ugly they might as well forfeit) that wanted orange back since day one. but the true "revolution" or wahtever it was came after mcdaniels supported the idea, then it kicked off on a large scale.

of course they could have planned to return to orange regardless of mcdaniels, in which case it would have been amazing timing that he says it, fans take to the grassroots and then it happens..

But one thing I do LOVE...the logo! Our logo looks awesome! Maybe it's because I'm a "youngin" at 29, but I think our logo is one of the best in the league. IMO, it's sleek, intense, and just plain "cool". :ouwknow:
