Steelers will wear white jerseys in Super Bowl (http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/09020/943153-66.stm?cmpid=sports.xml)
Tuesday, January 20, 2009
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Steelers will wear their white game jerseys as the visiting team in the Super Bowl, and that color has been significant to them over the years.

They wore white in just two of their previous six Super Bowls -- their first when they beat the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl IX in New Orleans and in their most recent, a victory over the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XL in Detroit.

They normally wear their white jerseys on the road because the home team has first choice, but coach Bill Cowher chose white for Super Bowl XL even though they were the home team for that game. He did so because they wore their white jerseys in their three playoff victories that led to the Super Bowl, all on the road.

The Arizona Cardinals chose first and will wear their red home jerseys for the game in Tampa, Fla.

I was going to post, asking what jersey they were going to wear, and here is my answer. Now I know which one to wear on game day...When they wear white, I wear white and vice versa!

Well we have 3 Super Bowl wins wearing our Black Jersey's the two against Dallas in the 70's and the one against the Rams in 1979. Now it's time to get the 3rd Super Bowl win in the White Jersey's having wins over the Vikings and of course Seattle in 2005. The good news is the Steelers are 3-1 while wearing their black jersey's and have never lost when they wear their white jersey's in the Super Bowl posting a 2-0 record.

I was wondering if they would consider wearing the throwback jersey's if we were going to wear the home uni's too.

However, as long as they win I'm still happy.

White is the color of choice down here in the summer time...black absorbs that good ol' hot sun and humidity! lol Unless the weather changes a lot by Feb. 1st, won't make any difference in the SB...it's supposed to get down to 29 tonite!!!!!

So did I! It would make more sense. I mean, we did clearly have a better record...

Maybe it is because Tampa is hosting it, so it is an NFC home ground?

Though, it can't be that as we were home in XL and that was at Detroit!

If wearing white is what it takes to win the superbowl, then I'm all for it. :helmet:

Although I do like the home jerseys MUCH better.:tt02:

60 Min Man said it but a few people missed it: During even SBs (ie XL) the AFC is home and during odd SBs (ie XLIII) the NFC is home.

That's why we technically should've worn black last time, but Cowher said he felt it was away because it wasn't at Heinz Field.

throw backs from both teams would be cool

Now that's a crazy idea. I love video games with throwbacks and I always wear them, but the NFL can never seem to coordinate a game in which both teams wear throwbacks like baseball does. Not sure the SB is the right time to do it though.

Wearing white or black jerseys matters not to me. I'm anxiously awaiting another SB win for the Steelers.:tt02::tt02::tt02:

You are not kidding! It's freaking cold enough to snow! Told my brother to ship my down Steelers coat to me yesterday just in case it's cold when I get to Super Bowl!!
I don't care what they wear as long as they win...I'm still wearing my black Big Ben jersey, we've been winning with that jersey all year!

I don't care if the Steelers wear white jerseys, I'm confident that when they look into the stands it will feel like a home game to them.
