Denver Broncos Ready To Change To Orange Home Jersey; Will NFL Approve?

New, 3 comments

Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports that the Denver Broncos want their home uniforms to become what are currently their alternative orange jerseys. The Broncos still need league approval for this to happen, and if that does happen, the change won't take effect until the 2012 season (and that could be the next time the NFL plays another game after this weekend's Super Bowl 45).

The Broncos have been playing in dark blue home jerseys since the 1997 season, and in the first two years of wearing those jerseys the team won two Super Bowls! Maybe going back to orange will also help the team win the Super Bowl again. I would like nothing better than to see a modern-day Orange Crush defense.

And speaking of jerseys, I would like to see the Rockies wear more purple uniforms at home. The team was built on purple and black, but now it's just black and silver mostly. Someone needs to talk to the starting pitchers (they select the home jerseys worn each game) and tell them to select the purple ones more often. Purple is the color of royalty, and winning a World Series in purple jerseys will make that point clear.

[Update] Upon further review after a comment below, the purple jerseys have been retired. Bring 'em out of retirement.
