Let the Good Times Roll!

Pat Bowlen is on fire right now.  He's "ecstatic" with the hiring of Head Coach, Josh McDaniels and Defensive Coordinator, Mike Nolan.  And I for one don't blame him.  He's been on quite the emotional roller coaster having made a difficult decision to fire legendary coach and friend, Mike Shanahan and then turnaround and hire a new HC and DC.  You have to imagine he wants to retreat to the confines of his office and let the kids run the store while he watches from on high.  Well, Mr Bowlen, not so fast!  There's one more piece of buisness you need to attend to, one more thing for the Broncos organization to consider and embrace over the off-season -- new defensive players uniforms! 

Our Uniforms are So 90's

As you can see in Exhibit A, the Broncos uniform has evolved considerably from 1960 to the present.  I for one appreciated the bold uniform change in 1997 and firmly believe it allowed us to win back-to-back Super Bowls (dodges rock thrown by TD. Romo spits in my face).

However, the time has come once again to "upgrade" our uniforms to something that captures the essence of this decade (think Apple, economic depression, Call of Duty), the change in leadership (Shanny - tired, McD - wired) and the need to return to our roots (too much blue, need more orange).  To the last point, I'm seriously not kidding.  How am I supposed to teach my children about the Orange Crush with little to no orange?  My kids hate being lied to, Pat.  They think daddy is full of it because of your current uniforms.  It's time for a change, stat!

More Orange & Broncos!

I think returning to an orange uniform is the easy part.  The hard part is getting more Broncos into the uniform.  Yes, the Broncos stencil-like logo is fine, if you're into to decapitated horse heads.  But I for one want to see the bucking bronco in all its glory! Again, remember the kids, Pat.  Most can't do simple addition and subtraction without a calculator and you expect them to know what a bronco is?  I try to tell them it's a horse that acts like Nate Webster when he loses his helmet, but they still don't seem to quite get it. Bottom line, we need more bronco!!!!   Feel free to refer Exhibit B, the "liger", or C, Ride Big Bronco, for inspiration.

My Final Appeal

Aside from reminding you about the kids, Pat, that's about all I have to say on the matter.  I've included a MHR poll to help you get a feel for how devoted Broncos fans feel about the matter.  I think you'll find that winning another Super Bowl takes more than talented players and coaches, it takes wicked ass cool uniforms.  If you want to get Mile High rocking again, then get our boys some new battle fatigues!
