Wilson in orange

After a four-year hiatus, the Denver Broncos will be wearing their orange alternate jerseys in 2008 – not once, but twice. The Denver Post reports that the jerseys will be worn during home games against the New Orleans Saints in Week 3 (Sept. 21) and against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 14 (Dec. 7).

The last time the Broncos wore the jerseys was in 2004, in the game you see pictured left. That’s perhaps my favorite Broncos photo of the post-Elway era, even though the game ended up in a heartbreaking loss. (Darius Watts, just catch the damn ball!) The Broncos have never won a game in the jerseys since switching uniforms in 1997.

I’ve been dying to see these in action again. This just made my day. But what do you think? Let us know in the poll and comments.

How many games will the Denver Broncos win in 2011?

    I hope it snows like it did in the Oakland game. That’s when i really like the Orange. I think they should wear the blue pants with it.

    Wow Trent, I think the blue pants would be ugly as hell personally. :)

    I like the whites myself. What do you guys think?

  • Steve

    hell yes to orange jerseys. but definitely not with blue pants.

    Orange jerseys, orange pants. If we’re going to be bright, go all the way.

  • troyn

    yes to the orange, no to the blue pants. for that matter get rid of the blue pants with the blue jerseys as well, they look like a bad college uniform that way. the broncs won a super bowl wearing the white pants with the blue jerseys, they should go back to them.

  • ryan k

    I LOVE the orange jerseys, if I could decide they would be our main uniform.

  • dbroncos

    The orange jerseys are great, we should bring them out more.

    I love these. It reminds me of the good ol’ orange crush days.

  • Trent

    Yeah come to think of it…the blue would be ugly… My bad.

    I actually really like the blue on blue with the orange stripe connecting the two. I think it looks really classy. I believe that is what we were wearing when we beat New England in the playoffs a couple years ago.

    Look it up, I can’t remember losing a game wearing blue on blue.

    The orange is cool too – but I was at the last Oakland game and it leaves a foul taste in my mouth.

    Actually, I think its just bad luck when we wear the orange and it snows.

  • flbronc

    I love the orange… it takes me back to rowdy days in the south stands…..

    Garrett- i wish the defense reminded me of the ol’ orange crush.

  • http://birty.blogspot.com mikebirty

    hell yeah! Love the orange, (but hate the record in them) i even have an orange bailey 24 shirt.

    Can’t remember if either of those are evening games but orange should really be reserved for the floodlights.

  • http://www.broncomadness.com Garret Barnes

    True flbronc, very true. lol

  • Roy

    I wish they would make these thier home jerseys for good.

  • http://www.TheBandCeleste.com John Strand

    I agree with Josh Byers; when they wear the blue jerseys with blue pants and the orange stripe down the side connects the two, they look sexier and better than any other team in football, hands down.

    Terrible. The orange-white and blue-white uniforms are an embarrasment.

    Blue-blue or wearing the road whites at home are the only acceptable combos.

    They’ve lost a ton of games in blue-blue, Josh. They lost the Packers game last year in blue-blue.

  • http://broncotalk.net Kyle

    Blue-on-blue is the prime time games colors, isn’t it? Otherwise it’s blue on white…?

  • http://www.broncotalk.net Jonathan Douglas

    Since we’re all voting… here’s my vote:

    I don’t like the blue-on-blue. I also don’t like the orange-on-orange. I do like the 0range-on-white (like the picture).

  • http://www.broncotalk.net Jonathan Douglas

    P.S. When are we going to see the old ‘D’ logo throw-back uniforms? I’d pay good money to see a game with the team in the those, again. :)

  • http://Broncotalk Ben

    Hey, I love the oranges 2, I’m going 2 the Saints game, and i officially call 4 an “ORANGE-OUT” among the fans at Mile High during both those games!

  • http://mrherculesrockefeller.blogspot.com hercules rockefeller

    Kyle: They wore blue-blue against Tenn, Minn, and KC last year. All 2pm starts.

  • http://broncotalk.net Kyle

    ok thanks Herc. Tenn was MNF, but the point is still there.
