had history , but one that was not visually striking . The D was dominant , and the bronco inside was an afterthought. Since the letter D was dominant the logo was in opposite directions on each side of the helmet, and was inconsistent. The new logo always had the Bronco head going downfield. The current logo is one I like, and I don't see how they can improve it much.

So the removal of the Primary color being Orange,is not one I will cry about.
And it indicates that Bowlen , and maybe Elway now believe in the Orange jinx, like Shanny did. The look of the blue uniform was designed to help the team seem more intimidating to the opposition, and instill confidence in the team.

What is more intimidating? ....Black. Black body with Orange Outlined numbers and striping. The Bumblebees!

Or maybe we'll go back to the striped socks.
Absolutely agree with everything you said.....well except for the Bumblebees and striped socks.

Funny, seems the older fans are more accepting. I just don't want them to have the same look as the Oregon unis. Those things are hideous.

Not buyin it.

The team just made the switch back to orange, what, 2 yrs ago? And it was supposedly for the fans.

The only way they would switch to a different primary color would be if marketing/sales were plunging. And, I just don't see how they would be w/Manning merchandise and the fact that we've been winning (last game not included).

I just can't see a change from Orange, and I don't want to.

I hope they keep orange as the primary... it has become something great for the fans and our stadium. Elway has mentioned how much he likes seeing all the orange on game days. So I doubt it will change, but I wouldn't be against a fresh new design. I have to think this would make us the leader in the NFL for jersey changes too... am I wrong?
1) Brown and Yellow (granted I know it was just for one season)
2) Stupid looking horse on the Helmet
3) D on the helmet (my favorite)
4) And our current design

Definitely would love to see a non Orange primary re-design. I was always partial to the Blue.

Agree, we older fans are more accepting...or maybe more superstitious!

If you want the D logo back put it on the shoulders...not the Helmet.
As far as Star wars....Carbon Fiber Helmets are the rage....So Chromed helmets that blind the opposition with flashes of sun and an Orange Logo.

I know we're talking about our team, but sidenote, and I am probably in the minority here, I actually like what Nike did with Dolphins uni's and logo tweak.

Maybe they (Nike, Broncos) will hire George Costanza to consult on the uni change..

I thought the new Dolphins colors were terrible. They look like a knock off. "Tonight! The South Florida Manatees against the Boston Goodguys! Only on Sega Pro Football!"

Y'all totally realize there's nothing to this.

Especially the switch from primary Orange.

How do you go from "United in Orange" to "Nevermind, let's go back to the Seacacks' Primary color"

Not saying they might not tweak the jerseys. But come on.

Beavis, you know I love you, but this post is ridiculous.

There's absolutely something to this and from what I'm hearing, they're going to undertake a MASSIVE logo overhaul, too:

For what it is worth, I work for nike corporate and neither I nor any of my friends in the intellectual property dept that file all design patents know anything about this.

Hey... Our identity is orange. Our fans demand orange when we stray from it. We've been orange for almost 50 years now. How about this - how about we lose the orange and go for something completely counter to our team's identity and history...

Not buying it...
