If the Broncos are going to insist on wearing helmets featuring the old “D” logo, why can’t they just resurrect the old uniforms entirely?
Who wouldn’t want to see the old powder-blue helmets, orange jerseys and white pants? That’s a look we all remember fondly. Instead the Broncos “throwback” uniforms are a twisted mash-up of old and new looks. The familiar “D” is there, but on navy blue helmets. Worse, though, is the garish orange-on-orange pants and jersey combo.
The only thing uglier is the Broncos’ current streak of losing seasons. It stands at three. They’ve missed the playoffs in four straight seasons. Hard to believe that Broncos GM John Elway could survive another season if the playoff drought continues — or that he’d want to.
