Not buying it...
I agree, Orange is who Denver is. What did Denver do the last time they switched from Orange... oh, yeah. They won 2 Super Bowls.

Super Bowls trump color every time.

1) I'm fully on board with a new design, no matter how Oregon-esque if it gets away from the 90's pit stain swoosh we've had 16 years.

2) But it's gotta stay orange. We fought so long to get it back, they can't take it away on superstition of one bad game. Here's an idea: we seem to win plenty in the regular season (and playoffs) wearing orange. If they're hung up about the Super Bowl record wearing them, just choose to wear the whites if we're the designated home team. Or alternate blues.

if you're dumb enough to pretend that what color jersey we wear has any bearing on our ability to win super bowls, then I suppose you'd be right.

Winless when they have a botched snap for a self-inflicted safety on the first play from scrimmage.

Winless when they don't score in the first 45 minutes of the game.

Winless against teams whose primary colors involve blue, gold or maroon.

Winless in Super Bowls played outside Miami or San Diego.

See ya, wouldn't want to be ya, wouldn't want to be that shallow. ;-)

Just kidding on the shallow part. I figure we've survived all the uniform changes so far, with the updates every few years. Maybe it's time to change it up again; I can live with that. But then, I'm not real invested in "keeping the tradition" of just about anything.

I like the asymmetry of these designs, and the variety of "looks" between blue, orange & white. I could see them wearing all five combinations at some point during a season.

I'd prefer they choose one color helmet or the other, but that's not critical.

If you forced me to choose one road and one home design, I'd take the second from the left (mostly white) for the road, and second from the right (mostly blue) for home unis. Both still feature quite a bit of orange, but it doesn't dominate.

But there are too many Nike swooshes: the blue one at the left hip and the orange one at the right calf make the point, while reinforcing the color boundaries and asymmetry. The swoosh on the left calf is just redundant.

I guess a simple Orange jersey with no Nike pit stains or funky striping is too much to ask? A simple dark orange jersey for home and a late 70"s like dark orange pants for away. Super simple. If they want to get cute, then mess with the cheerleaders all you want.

But, if we have to change . . . I'd like to see something like this black jersey, but with thicker orange outlines on the numbers and metallic black helmets featuring an orange stripe and the modified old school D logo from this white helmet mock-up.

I think the thugs to the west have already claimed the black (Raiders). You're nuts. I think it's safe to say that it is going to be something that none of us expect.

I think it's going to be exactly what I expect, which is a bull**** rumor with nothing to it

With the way they played in the Super Bowl something like these would be appropriate:
