Denver Broncos new logo for 2016-17?

 So let's trade an outdated 90s look for an outdated 70s look? 

 

The current Broncos' template has stood the test of time. They were first to use that modern style of uni and looks like they're pretty much the last. No need to tweak it either. Could you imagine how awkward their current set would look with block numbers? Ehhh...

 

Again, if the uniform carries a definite winning tradition, you're not going to see very much change over the years. How many teams have undergone a massive overhaul after winning 3 Super Bowls in the basically-the-same uni? Packers, Steelers, Cowboys, Raiders, 49ers, Redskins, Patriots... Nope. Not one of 'em. 

 

 

EDIT: For a hot minute, the 49ers tried that half-assed burgundy/BFBS tweak before crawling back to the classics. They learned.

 

Actually, that "hot minute" lasted about 10 years, but I agree with you that the 9ers needed to get back to the classics.

 

As a matter of fact, that is exactly what I'm advocating for the Broncos.  Glad you finally see it my way.

While we're on the topic of photoshopping, has anyone made an image replacing the navy with royal on the existing uniform? 

I actually wouldn't mind a mash up of the two uniforms

That looks pretty good.  I think something on the sleeves is needed, but overall I like it, and normally I'm a guy who would take the D-horse logo over the horse head any day of the week..

No, it really hasn't.

It was pretty great when the Broncos wore the classic uniform for Thanksgiving back in 2001.

It's just a better uniform.

 

There was never enough blue in the rest of that uniform to balance out the blue helmet. Reverse the orange and blue on the socks, and match the stripes to the helmet and that would've looked really good.

It's not an outdated '70s look, though. It's a "football look". It's a classic football template with a block font, sleeve stripes and pants stripes. It could have been created in the '70s, '80s, ;'90s or the '40s. Meanwhile, the only time the current set would have ever been created in is the '90s.

 

You might say the same thing about other sets. The Panthers look great, for instance, but people could argue their set is "dated" because it has '90s colors and influence. The difference is (other than the Panthers looking loads better than the Broncos in general), that the Panthers were born in the '90s. It makes sense for them to look like a '90s team because they were made then. The Broncos, on the other hand, look like a '90s team because that's when ownership bought into Nike's sales pitch and blamed their past super bowl failures on their classic jerseys.

Honestly, both of those looks are inferior to this. Slap the current logo on the helmet and call it good.

Presuming you mean a white horse with blue mane, I still think there needs to be more blue on the helmet.  Perhaps a blue stripe.

This playoff run I came to realize the Broncos' current logo is amazing. It really is one of the best in the league. Hope they never go away from it.

The more I think about it Denver I'm split.  I think the existing helmet logo is the better logo, but the "D" is better on a helmet.  I prefer the unique font, and don't even really mind the swoosh-pant-stripe.  I think the old "hoop" jersey looks the best, but I don't think it would make their best uniform (because to me the royal helmet is untouchable).  When I look at different concepts, I think what makes that royal helmet look so good is the contrast with the solid orange jersey.

Maybe it makes sense that this (Buffalo) is another of my favorite looks from yesteryear:

Even Mash-up Tom think's that look is harsh.

This. White-blue-white Braisher stripes on that helmet, with the modern logo, and you'd have the perfect Broncos set. I always loved the blue sleeves-orange jersey look.

The blue sleeved orange jersey is my favorite Broncos jersey of all time, but the current helmet is the best imo.. I think a combination of eras that included these two elements would be  a good look

There's too much orange in the modern logo to really work on an orange helmet.  The mane would get completely lost.  The blue helmet is needed for contrast for a logo that is white and orange.

Not a fan of an orange helmet for the Broncos. A little too much orange for my liking. I would like so see some version of the blue-sleeved jerseys come back, though. With a blue helmet it could look really sharp, IMO.

Since there's no real news, here's a concept I did a few years ago meshing the eras.  I'd be good with something like this.

With now 3 Super Bowl wins in the current set I don't see them changing anything drastically. That being said, simply removing the side panels from the jersey would be a huge improvement. (I can almost see it in the photo below if you just squint and try not to see the little horn points under the arms.

A white facemask and thinner white helmet stripes makes this a winner.
