The Orange Crush Defense was the 3–4 defense of the Denver Broncos during the late 1970s and early 1980s. The team adopted the 3–4 defense during the 1976 season, and the nickname "Orange Crush" for the team's defense was popularized early in the 1977 season by sportswriter/broadcaster Woody Paige.[1][2]

The Broncos' famed stopping a Raiders offensive play in the 1977-78 AFC Championship Game.

It was one of the top defenses of its time with linebackers Randy Gradishar and Tom Jackson, with Gradishar as a potential Pro Football Hall of Fame selection. Other key players were defensive linemen Paul Smith (a three-time Pro Bowl selection), Barney Chavous, Lyle Alzado, and Rubin Carter, linebackers Bob Swenson and Joe Rizzo, and defensive backs Billy Thompson and Louis Wright and Steve Foley and Bernard Jackson.

In 1977, coach Ralston stepped down and Red Miller was brought in to guide an already talented team to their first ever playoff berth. The defense was already showing signs of dominance. By Week 7 of the 1977 season, the Broncos were 6-0 and the defense was well known as “The Orange Crush Defense”, giving up a total of 46 points during those games.

The team's coaching staff was led by Joe Collier, who was the defensive coordinator, along with defensive line coach Stan Jones (inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1991), and head coach Red Miller.

In the season the team played in Super Bowl XII, the 1977 Broncos had the National Football League (NFL)'s number-one defense against the rush and were a respectable 11th out of 28 teams against the pass using the NFL Passer Rating score. They allowed only 10.6 points per game, the third fewest in the league.

The team's defensive unit derived the nickname from their orange home jerseys and a popular soft drink, Orange Crush.[3]

The use of the term has resurfaced in recent years, most notably in reference to the Broncos' 2015 season.[4]
