Are the Denver Broncos Color Rush Uniforms Dead?
By Tylor Walden
With FOX Sports taking over Thursday Night Football, they announced they will do away with color rush. Will there be no more Denver Broncos all orange?
It appears it was a fun experiment while it lasted for the Denver Broncos and the rest of the league. But it appears that Color Rush will go into the vaults and never be seen again. However, that might not be the case.
With FOX Sports taking over for Thursday Night Football, the network announced that they will do away with the color rush uniforms on Thursday nights. No more Broncos orange vs Colts blue. At least for right now. The NFL owners will have the final say whether the league eliminates the uniforms all together.
To me, the idea of all one color is a good idea. I even have a Von Miller color rush jersey hanging in my closet from my first visit to Denver. The idea itself was met with mixed reviews. C.J. Anderson, the current Broncos running back, stated that the team’s color rush, “makes me look like a pumpkin.”
While he does have a point, is that not the reason behind the color rush uniforms? To have a team wear just one color? So, it makes you look like a pumpkin. It is only for one game.

I would not count out the color rush just yet. If the network does not want teams wearing them on Thursday night games, the teams could still wear them on other days, if they so choose.
For some teams, I would not blame them for locking theirs in a vault for the rest of time. Other teams, I can see them exercising this option. Will the Denver Broncos keep the color rush uniforms?
