I'll have a stab at it. Not sure what some of these guys wore in college, so it's pure guesswork.

Mendenhall - #23 (after we cut Carter, if not, I like your 29)
Sweed - #84
Dixon - won't need one - he'll be wearing the mascot uniform
Humpal - 54
Davis - 94
Hills - 65
Mundy - 30

You really think the FO will let someone wear #75? I thought that was one of the few #s that had been retired.

Mendenhall - Seems like a 32

Sweed - 14 or 84

Davis - 54 if Frazier doesn't make the team. Similar number otherwise.

Humpal - 53

Hills - I'll go 63

Dixon - 12

Mundy - 29

Glad to see I am not the only cynic who thinks Dixon should get Bradshaw's number

12+88=6

Mendenhall -25 (Clark will have to swtich if he even plays. This will be similar to Reggie Bush going from 5 in college to 25 in the pros).

Sweed- 14 or 82

Davis- 55

Humpal- 53

Hills- 63 sounds right (I forget which number Hartwig took)

Dixon- 11

Mundy-21

I cant wait to find out what number Mendenhall is getting cause I am getting his jersey the day he picks!

I believe Ernie Stauntner #70,is the only player that has his number officially retired. 75 is one of the unofficially retired numbers: 1, 12, 31, 32, 36, 47, 52, 58, 59,53

Numbers that we will not see given out:

32 (Franco Harris)
12 (Terry Bradshaw)
75 (Joe Greene)
52 (Mike Webster)
58 (Jack Lambert)
59 (Jack Ham)
88 (Lynn Swann)
82 (John Stallworth)
47 (Mel Blount)
70 (Ernie Stautner, only number officially retired by the Steelers)
36 (Jerome Bettis)

The only number off that list I can actually see them giving someone is Stallworth's #82, and only because they gave it to Randle El.

Now for my guesses:

Rashard Mendenhall, RB- #21 (He says he compares himself to LT, so I cans ee himt aking #21)

Limas Sweed, WR- #17 or #84

Bruce Davis, DE- #93

Tony Hills, OT- # 64

Dennis Dixon, QB- #19

Mike Humpal, LB- #53

Ryan Mundy, FS- #31

Davis - 94

Timmons is 94:laughing:

I am looking forward to both Mendenhall and Sweed's jersies coming out. I think I'm going with Sweed's jersey first, which I figure will be 84 (I'd rather not see him dawn the number of moronic Neil O'Donnell), and Mendenhall will either do 25 or 21. Hopefully they either cut Clark or they say hey you suck give up your number to a guy who's going to be here longer than you.


Why do some of you think Dixon's going to be a mascot dawning sideline warmer? I think he has the talent to beat out St. Pierre, and with Batch aging, Ben needs an exciting backup to be there just in case. Dixon. I'd say his # would be most up in the air since his is definitely already taken. He could go up or down if the choice is his.

Rashard Mendenhall, RB- #21, #23, #28

Limas Sweed, WR- #17 or #84 could also see 81/18 - in an interview he said something about really liking randy moss when asked about who he compares himself to

Bruce Davis, DE- #93

Tony Hills, OT- # 64

Dennis Dixon, QB- #18 - 19 is such and ugly number why are people picking that?

Mike Humpal, LB- #53

Ryan Mundy, FS- #30

They also gave Swann's number 88 to TE Jonathan Dekker , so really probably any number is up for grabs.

Anyways I could see Dixon either wearing 11 or 82.

A lot of times guys are listed on the offseason roster with a number and wear it in practice, but by the first preseason game that's not their number anymore.

For example. it shows that Justin Hartwig's number is #75, but I would bet money that come preseason games that his number is changed.

There is a good chance that Dekker won't be wearing #88 come preseason game time.

And I don't think that Dixon would end up wearing #82, I would assume he's gonna take a number in the teen's so he can also come in and play QB if needed.

the steelers have never had a number retired... but they just dont give out the #'s.....

i personally think mendenhall will buy 25 from ryan clark

sweed will have 14 like someone else

and my favorite bruce davis will have #54 or 94 if he buys it from timmons...

Yeah... he'll get a number in the teens so he can do both.

That was back before WR's could wear only 80-89.
