Default Orange Jerseys?

In anticipation of any critics of this post, let me readily admit that this topic is both petty, and irrelevant to the big game against the Patriots. Anyway...

I've been giving this some thought recently, and I think the Broncos should keep the orange jerseys they wore against the Cowboys as their standard home uniform. Doing so would have the following advantages:

1. It's more in keeping with Bronco tradition. For the majority of their history, the Broncos have been associated with the color orange. Wouldn't you love to be give the defense an "Orange Crush" type nickname again?

2. It's more unique. The NFL is loaded with teams who use either blue or navy as their primary color. This includes the Giants, Bears, Bills, Colts, Lions, Cowboys, Patriots, Texans, Chargers, Seahawks, Titans, and Rams. Meanwhile, nobody uses orange as their primary color. The only places it's seen at all are the Browns, Bengals, and Dolphins. In all these cases it's secondary. We could be the exclusive orange team in the league.

3. Competitive advantage. Scientific research suggests that extended exposure orange makes viewers feel uncomfortable and disettled. We could use this against our opponents. Also, since orange stands out better than blue, Orton would be able to spot his receivers more easily as he scans the field.

4. Symbolism. Orange is associated with feelings of enthusiasm and energy. It is also the international color of hope. Isn't that something we should all encourage?

Orange is a power color. It is one of the healing colors. It is said to increase the craving for food. It also stimulates enthusiasm and creativity. Orange means vitality with endurance. People who like orange are usually thoughtful and sincere. Lady luck's color is orange. I have been told that if a change of any kind is need in life, just burn an orange candle for 7 nights.

So, I guess this means we are powerful and when were wear the orange jerseys we will heal our injured and Lady luck will be on our side. McDaniel's will be creative and the players will have super endurance. I need to pile the food high for the games and need to light some orange candles......Works for me .........

I love my Broncos, but orange is a terrible color. Yes, orange has historical significance for the Broncos, but they were super bowl losers until they switched to the blue jerseys. Blue is a much better color, and far less antagonizing to watch.

Based on socio-psych research, many fast-food restaurants put lots of orange and bright red in their dining rooms to encourage patrons to eat and run

NFL Properties changed the rule recently .... teams are now allowed to wear alternate/third jerseys, at home only, once in pre-season and twice in regular season, at the team's discretion. Looks like Josh and Pat are going to max out

Still, like I've posted a million times, what we REALLY need is fr Reebok to make up about 100 orange pants with the blue swoosh on the side, and twice a year come busting out in ....

ALL ORANGE!

Are there playoff rules to what you can wear? Orange in the P\Os would be epic.

Discussing the Broncos uniform is OK, but I'm more concerned about the players wearing them.

Having said that, we've not fared too well wearing orange in the Super bowl.....losing 27-10 to Dallas, 42-10 to Washington, and 55-10 to SF.

We're 1-0 in the Navy and 1-1 wearing the road whites.

My take the situation:

1) Orange jersey/white pants should be our main uni
2) Blue jersey/blue pants should be our alternate uni
