  • Name the Broncos Oline

    ***SPECIAL UPDATE

    1) If you like the name "Mile High Wall" please do a write in for it. It was accidentally omitted in the posting process.
    2) There will be a 2nd and final poll after this one, narrowed down to the top 5 or so names. It should be ready by early next week. Please watch for it!! The reasons: 1) too many names to choose from, 2) votes thinned out, possibly because voters are choosing their own entries, 3) this is a common way to choose a winner - that is, elimination round(s), 4) It may sort out any process errors (I'm bad!!!)

    KEEP VOTING!!



    The following poll will decide the name of the Broncos Oline, a group we have come to respect and praise on a weekly basis.

    I have narrowed down the list of names submitted to the top 25. I guess you could say I made some executive decisions (ya right!!!), and chose to eliminate based on:
    - player names (like Jay, Ryan and Wieg) as I believe the group should have a distinct name, and not respective of any one or two members of the Offence.
    - some obvious jokes (you jokesters you!!!!)
    - abbreviations
    - some repetition that wasn't quite as popular (based on some initial feedback)

    I apologize for doing so, especially to those who lost their submissions. If it's any consolation I elimnated most of my entries (okay...they sucked!!)

    Have fun with this. I'll leave the poll open for a couple of days for sure.

        Orange Curtain

        If we have the best offensive line in the NFL, Orange Curtain would look good. So far, I have not heard or read anywhere the best offensive line is the one in Denver, but if it is and everyone knows it, I am all for naming those front five.

          I normally hate seeing spam polls like this, but this one actually has a just cause :salute!:

          Orange Curtain does it for me... reference to the real life Iron Curtain and what it entailed (keeping people in the CCCP) and Orange for the Broncos.

                The Broncos are tied for first with the Titans, having only allowed 7 sacks.

                  Cutler has thrown 449 times
                  &
                  Collins has thrown only 328 times, even tho he has started 1 less game.

                  You also gotta account for that stat.

                    Exactly, the Broncos are easily the best in the NFL in terms of pass protection... now if only we got back to being a top 5 run team too.

                      Instead of a dominating defense a.k.a. "Orange Crush"

                      We now have a dominating O-line ....thus......."Orange Curtain"

                      I'm all for it !!!!!!

                        The Orange Curtain sounds fitting for our group.

                          Mile Wide is hands down the best, I mean think how long you'd have in the pocket to throw if they defender had to run around something a mile wide.

                          Not to mention the simplicity of the connection to Mile High.

                              Orange curtain? Can't we think of something new and original with out having to rip off 2 names from the past? Orange crush + steal curtain = orange curtain? I prefer something like "Cutler's Chubbies"
