McDaniels earlier today holding up the 1960 throwback jersey the Broncos will wear this upcoming season.

This is really sad news from an aesthetic standpoint, and not exactly a brilliant business move either, unless they think there's a lot of pent up demand for brown and mustard merchandise... I'm sure my beloved Donkeys will be inspired to heretofore unattained athletic achievements when they don those vertically striped socks, though.

Again, my question is this: If the other AFL teams were not required to go with their "original" sets, why did the Broncos management decide to resurrect what is commonly referred to as the one of the worst uniform designs of all time?

And we thought our defense was embarrassing...

I wish it was the yellow jersey. The white jersey just seems too bland. If the Broncos wore the yellow jersey, it'd be the first time a team wore a yellow/gold jersey since the Saints in '02, IIRC. But I'm glad the socks are back.

Well, from Roxfan's quote, there are supposed to be home and away games, so that means there probably is a yellow jersey in the works. In a rare smart move, though, it appears the Broncos have chosen to delay the suckitude if it's introduction...

Because when they fired Shanahan, they fired every ounce of gray matter in the front office?

I think the Lions new wordmark is a huge upgrade. I don't think the logo is that big of a step up though. I like some part (mainly the change to the front legs), but for the most part I think the white lines make it just look cluttered.

The Jags script, like everyone else sad, is bland and uninspired. Plus the "tails" or whatevers is on the end of the J and S don't make any sense.

I'm curious about the N.Y. Titans jersey that Rex Ryan is holding in that picture. It was stated last season that they'd be wearing a white version during 2009 but I guess they're sticking with the blue one.

I think they will still be wearing the white this year. From my understanding, each team is going to wear throwbacks once at home and once on the road. I don't remember where, but I'm pretty sure it was from an article posted a while ago.

I really like the Lions upgrade! Dont know about the Jags switching to the same old wordmark ala falcons, bengals, cardinals, seahawks, etc.

cannot wait to see the new unis this year, after not having any major changes last season!

now if only the Falcons would swich back to the black jerseys!! :(

This is why I hate these threads.

Can someone post a recap of anything FACTUAL with any photos or graphics that are more than concepts?

...and this is why I love these threads. :D

I agree - builds excitement, keeps us all guessing, etc.
