Your thoughts?

Edit: I didn't realize they'd get so much run today in the media. Count me in as one of the "they're so freakin' ugly that I actually kind of dig them."

My sister said "it was all about the super socks. That was the key to victory." Maybe!

The socks completely destroy what is otherwise an OK throwback.

I completely understand why they were burned in teh first place after having seen them in full HD.

See I think the socks are in that "so ridiculous/ugly that they're actually awesome" category. I don't know. I don't care for the colors at all, for the jersey or pants or socks... But again, they were so ridiculous that I couldn't help but love them.

As long as you twist the socks so it looks like you're trippin' ala Jabar Gaffney, they're cool.

Your poll options suck.

And Public polls are for pussies who need validation.

I really enjoyed them. Honestly the only part of the uni that is that bad is the socks, and I even enjoyed them for just a game. I'm personally glad I got to see a game played in those uniforms.

I've fallen in love again....with the Denver Broncos...I fell in love with them as a kid because of the Orange and Blue...and because they were the opposite of the Raiders...Those Mustard and Brown uniforms felt like I was watching something...not from this life...seriously...the win and the way we won...made it all that more inspiring...On Saturday night I started planning a weekend escape to go watch a game sometime this year...sensing something good was coming on.... I feel like something really special is happening and want to be part of it...I love that uniform...

I want to see the 1980's style uniforms in a throwback game. That's the team I grew up with. Lots of memories of me and my dad rushing my mom out of post-church socializing so we could get home and watch the team.

If I saw the Broncos come out in those uniforms, I would definitely tear up a bit. I wasn't born during the era of the mustard unis, but those orange jerseys and the big D logo... they are etched into my soul.

Although I know they are ugly, they are a cool part of Broncos history and I totally dig em. In fact, when I started my blog back in November, I used them for the name of it and registered www.verticallystripedsocks.com because I liked em so much as a goofy historical footnote. When they announced the legacy games, I was over the moon.

Did anybody buy the socks? The store apparently sold out and is getting another shipment. I will be buying a pair.

I liked the socks as bizarre as they were. The colors brown and yellow not so much, seriously, they made me think of Peanut M&Ms in those uniform which may just be something in my psychology, a weird oral fixation or something (shut up, I can hear your commments already smarties).
I like the orange jersey's though which is odd because I really think orange is not one of my favorite colors except for the Broncos.

I got a pair back in August, I wore them to the Pats game as when else will it be appropriate to wear em? I posted some photos of em and the Pats game here...

They looked goofy when just one person wore them, modeled them.

But when the whole team came running out wearing them, I freaking LOVE that uniform.


I'm gonna order a copy of that game from Atlas so I can always have that

I like them. A lot. They are bold, so I think you either love 'em or hate 'em.
