The Story

The Broncos were founded in 1960 as one of the original members of the American Football League (AFL). During the league’s 10 years of existence, the Broncos never posted a winning record, and they finished last in their division on six occasions. The team did have a few standout players at this time, however, including wide receiver Lionel Taylor, who led the AFL in receptions five times, and running back Floyd Little. After the 1970 NFL-AFL merger, the Broncos continued to dwell in the divisional cellar before having their first winning season in 1973.The Broncos finally broke through to gain a play-off berth in 1977. Led by linebackers Randy Gradishar and Tom Jackson, as well as the rest of the so-called “Orange Crush” defense—whose name derived from the team’s bright orange home jerseys at the time—the Broncos went 12–2 and claimed the best record in the conference. They won their first two postseason games to advance to the Super Bowl, which they lost to the Dallas Cowboys.

Made to be incredibly soft, we crafted these bad boys from a plush poly-cotton blend, including a soft-as-butter "sponge" fleece lining - making it perfect for your commute from bar to couch on those crisp fall Sundays. We finished it off with all the details of a classic hoodie: ribbed cuffs and waistband, kangaroo hand pocket, and white chord drawstring. It's sure to quickly become your go-to essential.
