The Steelers will once again sport their throwback uniforms this season, wearing them for the September 29 game against Baltimore and October 26 game vs. the New York Giants, both at Heinz Field.




The jerseys were popular with players and fans alike, and many can be seen dotting the hillsides at St. Vincent College during the team’s training camp.



They were originally worn as a part of the team’s 75th Season Celebration last year.

i like them

I agree. Maybe they will wear them every few games from now on as an alternate uni. Would still like to see an all black uniform ala Jags, Ravens alternate uni's.

I like them too, I wouldn't mind seeing those as being our official alternate uniform from here on out.

When a good idea gets in the hands of marketing people, it was fine for a 1 time thing. Now they are going to milk it and look ridiculous doing it, just like the Pens and their 3rd jersey. Way to screw things up Art...

The jerseys weren't too bad, but those helmets?!?!?! They were just horribly ugly in every way possible. They need to be burned. I did not care for them at ALL. I hope we have the same type of game wearing them against the Ravens this season as we did last!!!! If we do, shoot, we can wear them every week.

I really liked those throwback Jerseys.... i have no problem if we get to see them again this season!
Even more if we get the type of succes we got against the ravens last year!

yeah the pants leave alittle to be desired I'll give you that :lol:

I really like the throw backs, gives you a nice glimpse into yesteryear and gives the current players a chance to be part of history alittle bit.

Hate the throwbacks! Think they are very ugly uniforms and can plainly see why they changed them. If I never saw them again I wouldn't be disappointed. :evilshake:

Just because other teams milk merchandising money by putting out crap uniforms doesn't mean we should to. The third jersey is one of the biggest screw ups in modern sports, 9 times out of 10 they look like crap. Its just marketing and money, you can see Young Art's hands all over this. I really dislike that man. This team not participating in these bullshiat practices was one of the pieces that made them great...

I really don't care. As long as we win, they could wear pink mini-skirts >.>

The helmets do leave alittle to be desired I'll give you that but the whole throw back concept is right up the Steelers alley. The Rooney's aren't all about flash n dash like other teams are with their alternate uniforms so a throwback alternate for us is just the ticket IMO. :yesnod:

well if they play anywhere close to how they played last year against the ratbirds in those Uni's then i'm all for it.

I think they look pretty sweet myself.:yellowthumb:

Yeah, of course its all about winning, but if your performance is based on what your uniform looks like then we are lost lol
