    I think the old uniforms looked awful. I liked the switch in 97, and I'm glad we went back to orange this year. I just hope we don't go back to the old helmets with the D. It's fine and all for the throwback games occasionally, but the Horse on the helmets now looks way better.

    Interesting. From everything I read about it at the time, Elway was involved in the new design of the '97-present uniforms which were done by Nike. I know I heard an interview with him once where he discusses it. Maybe I'm completely out to lunch, but I'm pretty sure he gave them his blessing back then.

    As far as I'm concerned, I like the '97-present unis the best. I hate the terrible looking collars on the new Nikes, though. I'm more partial to the navy blue jerseys with orange stripes than I am to the orange ones. Our old, alt orange jerseys were sharp looking (a little darker orange), but the new Nike variant looks almost like the old sherbet-orange Bucs. Our players look kinda like traffic cones out there. The blue, especially in the helmet, and the orange of the Nikes is too light, IMO.
    Mike Shanahan was behind the change to navy. In 1996, the Broncos still wore the classic orange jerseys with the D helmet, but all of the sideline apparel had shifted to a navy blue hue rather than the royal blue. Shanahan and rumor has it, his wife were the main culprits behind the change.

    I was livid with the change. Winning back-to-back Super Bowls softened the blow. Going to orange full time has helped, too. I still do not like the overall look of the Broncos uniform kit, however. I definitely support a change to a more classic look. The one the Broncos are sporting now screams late 1990s fashion faux pas along the lines of other hideous 1990s uniform changes such as the garb the Houston Rockets donned during that era.

    w/ orange pants?
    Yes! I would be fine with either white or orange pants with the white jerseys. I did everything about these uniforms--including the gray facemasks. Classic.

    I guess I am more old school. I don't like what Nike is doing to uniforms, especially in college. I just don't think they look appealing. If we changed our uniforms, I would prefer going back to the kind we had in the 80s and early 90s. Although I don't think we need to make any changes.

    I personally like the jerseys we have now, including the "collar".

    I have done some messing around with uniforms before, here is a combination of the old ones and the new ones-

    Neither the shade of orange or shade of blue has changed from last season to this season.

    Also, the collars look freakin' ridiculous.

    I used to dislike the orange jerseys but I like the current ones. I think Nike made subtle changes that worked for me. The radioactive orange is gone, replaced by a classy orange. And I already got used to the collar.
