I post a lot more than I actually contribute, and others have certainly earned more respect than I. I do it to show deference to our older members who contributed so much to the community over the years. I want the newbies to know who is really important and how to be part of the community; by looking to you guys.
So I try to lay low. I don't know why, but people look at post counts. I want them to see you guys as the leaders you are in the community. I'm just a dude that breaks stuff a lot. You guys actually make the community, so I want them to look to you.
Thanks dragon...it was good to go down memory lane..
BRONCO FAN FOR LIFE
The current helmet is, by far, my favorite. There is some great history in this thread, though.
The current Bronco helmets are so ugly. Bring back the old ones.
I would like to see the broncos wear the 1977-1991 uniforms at least one home game a season just for the heck of it. Mainly because except for the Bailey jersey, a Shanahan signed picture, and a Broncos football everything else that I have has the 1977-1991 logo on it.

A day to remember: 4-19-1995
I have one too Al from 1991 ..got it at a home game against the raiders...
its packed away now and have a newer one for game days.
When I was 4 or 5 and I thought the old logo was a dog, my dad argued it was a horse but I thought it was a cartoon of our dog..lol
BRONCO FAN FOR LIFE
I think that for "theme" days like throwbacks and stuff, the people that dress accordingly should get like a free beer or brat or something to encourage participation.
I also have a black & white photo of the Broncs on the road against the Chargers (which I believe was the first game of the season in '65), and it sure looks like there is blue-white-blue striping on the helmet:
Do you have any color photos that show the blue-white-blue striping, or any idea of how many games they might have worn such helmets?
From one geek to another, I thank you.
Does anyone have the original logo concepts for the Broncos current logo?
Back when the new uniforms came out, Nike town had an awesome display of several concepts that were being considered for the current logo.
Why did we change the helmets? That was our good luck.
I didn't realize the helmet changed, albeit in a subtle way, in 1999,
So THAAAAAAAAAAT'S what happened to us. I always thought it was Elway retiring and TO getting hurt, but clearly it was this!
BTW, I like the 1960 helmet, though I might be alone in that. Enough to buy Kyle Orton's from last year, funky little 8 ball that it is.
Ask me about My Jesus and how to have a relationship with him.
