To date, the Broncos are 0-3 when they wear their orange jerseys in the Super Bowl. They wore them during Super Bowl XII…and lost to the Cowboys. They wore them during Super Bowl XXII…and lost to the Redskins. And they wore them during Super Bowl XXIV…and lost to the 49ers. So fortunately, they are not going to wear their orange jerseys during Super Bowl XLVIII against the Seahawks. Because that would just be stupid, right? Right?!? RIGHT?!?
Er, apparently not. Earlier today, Denver revealed which jerseys they're going to wear during the Super Bowl on February 2 since they're going to be the "home" team during the game. And for whatever reason, they revealed that, despite their lack of success in orange jerseys in past Super Bowls, they're going to roll them out anyway for the big game. They have gone 9-1 in them so far this season, so they clearly know how to win in orange. But doesn't it feel like they're testing fate here? Doesn't it feel like they should play it safe and go with their white jerseys? Doesn't it feel like they should know better than to wear—gulp—orange?
Guess not! We'll just have to wait and see if that decision comes back to bite them in the end.
