Typically in warmer weather climates the home team decides to wear the whites at home to force the away team to wear the darks. Don't recall what the temp was in Philly that day.. but if it was close to 80, thats why the wore the whites.

OMG! I swear I didn't even pay attention to that. I love the black jerseys so I just was happy seeing them in the black ones, I didn't even notice that.

That's exactly the reason why they did it and a lot of other teams do it especially in games in September when the weather is still hot and temps are in the high 70's and 80's. You saw the Dolphins wear there blue jersey's in New England on Sunday and the Pats wore their whites at home as well just to use another example due to the hot weather in New England that day.

We are wearing the throwbacks on monday night. I hope we have the same type of performance as we did last year. I didn't even make the connection that we were wearing the black jerseys away. Never knew that the home team got to pick what the other team wore.

Very observant of you. I did not even notice! But your right. We definitely went with the black unis on the road and I have no idea why.

All I know is that I was not given a heads up on this and was decked out in my away gear, and knew it was going to be bad. If any of you know about these things please posted it by Friday so I dont get caught with my pants down again. Once I'm dressed, theres no going back. I was going to drink on sunday, but once I saw the Black Jerseys I pulled out the bottle.

The Steelers will wear their throwback uniforms against Baltimore -- the same ones worn in last year's Monday night game against the Ravens at Heinz Field.

SWEET...I'll be ready this time. Is Jiggleballs going to get some pine-tar or something for his hands? I dont know what I'm more freaked out about, our o-line or Jiggleballs coughing up the rock when Ray plants him at the line. Sure wish we had Dan back blocking. Who's dumb idea was it to get rid of the FB?

Those Throwbacks are sweet..anyone know a good site to order one? :thinking:..Looking for one with the numbers sewn on, not screen printed. I think it's called a premier jersey now.The replica ones suck..after a little while the numbers start peeling or fading off.And 275.00 for an authentic is a little crazy.

you should be able to get one on the @steeler.com for like $250.00 or $300.00. They have them for sale in my Steeler catalog for that much.
