The Browns are giving a jersey to the family of a fan who asked for six players to serve as pallbearers at his funeral.
Scott E. Entsminger, 55, of Mansfield, Ohio, died on July 4 at his home. In his obituary in the Columbus Dispatch, Entsminger, a lifelong Browns fan, requested “six Cleveland Browns pallbearers so the Browns can let him down one last time.”
“We’ve had Super Bowl success in our white uniforms,” Elway said.
The Broncos have played in a total of seven Super Bowls and in two of those, they wore white. In Super Bowl XXXIII, the Broncos beat the Falcons while wearing white. However, they’re not undefeated in the white uniforms: In Super Bowl XXI the Broncos lost to the Giants wearing white.
That being said, white is a way better choice than orange because the Broncos have been flat-out horrible wearing that color.
The Broncos are 0-4 while wearing orange, and all of the losses have been blowouts. Denver lost to the Cowboys in Super Bowl XII (27-10), the Redskins in Super Bowl XXII (42-10), the 49ers in Super Bowl XXIV (55-10) and the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII (43-8) while wearing orange.
The Broncos also wore blue in one game, beating the Packers in Super Bowl XXXII.
As for the white jerseys, the Broncos aren’t the only ones who have won a Super Bowl wearing that color. Since Super Bowl XXXIX, teams wearing white have gone 10-1.
As for Carolina, the Panthers will now be able to wear teal or black. Carolina went 3-0 wearing teal during the regular season and 6-0 wearing black.
Neil Maddox was so mad at Romo, that he set fire to his Romo jersey right after the game Sunday.
