View Full Version : Am I nuts? I actually like the throwback uniforms

11-05-2007, 07:28 PM
I know it's not our traditional black and gold, more like brown and dark yellow, but hey, they look okay. I definitely like the helmets.

Maybe I'm just crazy.

nah they are nice. i enjoyed watching us play in bills in the throwbacks as well. now i'm going to enjoy us beat the ravens in them as well.

they're not bad, but they're not better thanthe original ones. I like them for todays ocassion

11-05-2007, 08:32 PM
Absolutely love them, but widh they either had black or gold pants. Don't really like the white.

11-05-2007, 09:25 PM
i'd like to see them wear those once a year from here on out.

they do seem to bring us good games

I really like the jerseys.

And the jerseys are black by the way, no brown in our uni's except for mud.

The helmets I can live without, and the white pants don't look good.

Didn't we already have this discussion earlier this season?

Just sayin'.

Anyway, the jerseys are great; the uniform would be better with white helmets with the white pants or yellow pants with black helmets.

I didn't at first, but they grew on me as the game progressed. Not big on the pee yellow helmets, though.

11-05-2007, 11:05 PM
i love the jerseys, thinking about gettin one!

11-05-2007, 11:56 PM
Compared to the Jets and Eagle throw backs I saw this year, the Steeler ones are just fine in my books.

11-05-2007, 11:59 PM
yeah i didnt like them at first but more the game went on the more i started to like them. im thinking about picking up that helmet.

11-06-2007, 12:11 AM
I personally don't care what uniform their wearing, as long as they keep winning!

11-06-2007, 12:14 AM
Nah, there nice as hell...

Still want an authentic Ward, Parker, polamalu...the list goes on

I kinda liked them to.

I felt the team should've been wearing these uniforms all-year, in honor of their 75th season:
add this logo to the helmets (one-side only, of-course!!!!! ), then auction 'em off for charity at season's-end.

THe helmets can stay the rest has to change back. I do like those snazzy yellow helmets.

11-06-2007, 06:00 AM
I actually do like it alot, but thats the last time we will see them!

11-06-2007, 06:31 AM
They sure as hell look good when we play like that, bring them back every year!!

11-06-2007, 09:06 AM
i love them. EVEN the pants. i'll buy the jersey for sure. but for helmet i think i'll go with the mini one due to the financial situation i'm in right now.

11-06-2007, 09:06 AM

I'm with you, HTG. I didn't like them at all the first time they wore them, but they didn't look so bad last night. Maybe the mud helped? :wink02:

And, uh, we should probably refer to the yellow as "Heinz Mustard" yellow. :chuckle:

It could be worse, as others have noted....no throwback uni was as truly horrific as Philly's yellow and powder blue concoctions. Yeech.

11-06-2007, 09:09 AM
...it's decent enough...compare to Eagles' and Radioshack (Redskins)...:banana::tt02:

11-06-2007, 09:12 AM
Love them.

11-06-2007, 09:46 AM
I like it a lot!...
I saw a few authentic throwbacks yesterday...and they look really good!
I want my own....

11-06-2007, 10:01 AM
Absolutely love them, but widh they either had black or gold pants. Don't really like the white.

Same here. I don't like the Yellow helmets.

11-06-2007, 10:34 AM
They've definetely grown on me. I'll be getting one of the jerseys...just gotta decide whose!

11-06-2007, 10:37 AM
i didnt like them at first, but now i really like them. if we keep winning maybe we should bring them back..lol

11-06-2007, 10:46 AM
I'm still bitter over the facemasks not being grey. See klick81's avatar for a what a proper throwback helmet should look like.

11-06-2007, 11:51 AM
I don't like them,but I must say that I like them better than most other teams throw back uniforms.

11-06-2007, 03:58 PM
i like them a lot... as does Uni Watch, which is always a good sign

12-04-2007, 05:12 PM
They are the best looking uniforms wev'e had since the 80's. Definately going to get one soon. I'm just debating on whose to get. Its currently a toss-up between Harrison or Hampton.

12-04-2007, 07:22 PM
The throwback helmets look so bad ass. Especially the Revolution helmet on James Harrison. I wonder what the yellow helmet would look like on the regular uniform?

12-04-2007, 08:16 PM
I think if the Steelers ever change their jerseys what they should do is have the sleeve stripes like they do now, the gold numbers and helmets, and the pants we wear now. that would look really good imo.

12-04-2007, 08:44 PM
it would be nice if we used them as alternates for the upcoming years.. i still wish they would go back to the block numbers style of the 70s-90s.
