I loved those throwbacks last year. They looked great and everytime we played in them we kicked ass. I saw pictures of the team practicing with throwback helmets this offseason. Does anyone know if we're using them again?

we should reserve the throwbacks for our annual slaughtering of the Ravens

To make it more humorous, they shoud be forced to wear Browns throwbacks!

Didn't the Ravens have a different helmet when they started, with a Crest on it. They can use those and then brown jersies, just so cleveland fans aren't so confused.

that combination of colors couldn't be any uglier than the team the Ravens currently put out on the field every Sunday.

I hope they do not wear them. Not that I hated them(that much) I just like seeing them play in the tradtional B & G:helmet:

Many I know didn't care so much for the throwbacks, specially the yellow helmet.
Personally I really liked them, and the helmets grew on me.
Plus I love my Troy throwback jersey, and also the fact they kicked butt each time they wore them.

I wouldn't mind seeing them again except maybe with black pants with yellow stripe.

I'll admit, when I first saw pictures of them, when they had the press conference to 'show them off'. I really didnt like them at all... but they started to grow on me each time I saw them and I do like them now. I wouldn't be upset if they wore them sometime during the season.

Most throwbacks are pretty sad, I'd be OK if they passed on them this year. The use of an "alternate" jersey is a marketing ploy I would expect to see from the NFL. That way the team can make something that looks good and has the potential to sell.

I think we should wear them once a year, when Baltimore comes to town.

Kinda got used to 'em after seeing Ben throw 5 TD's in one half against the Ratbirds. :thumbsup:

They'll be our "a'going a'slaughterin'" clothes when we go to Baltitown.:chuckle:

I'm of the opinion that we should just go back to the old unis with the block shaped numbers and remove the logo from the chest.

Then we could do home and away helmets!

They got sued for that crest

According to the new Merch catalog, those 75th anniversary ones are now listed as "3rd" jerseys.

I liked our REALLY old throwback jerseys. These came out in 1994...

But would it kill the team to have grey facemasks as part of the throwback uniform. Hell, make grey facemasks part of the permanent uniform (along with block numbers, of course). That's the only redeeming thing about Cleveland's team, that they switched from white to grey fasemasks two years ago (he says grudgingly).:flap:

The throwbacks were ok. A change is nice once in awhile if it relates to team history.

I like the throwbacks.

I wonder how much of the available merchandise is at the discretion of the team vs. the league.

They are going to wear the throwbacks again this season.

Steelers to wear throwback uniforms



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.

Agree'd.

Although the shapes aren't too bad, the new numbers have that slight tilt and make it look like an irregular print job.:noidea:

I loved the helmets.

The jerseys were awesome, but I got confused when I wore mine....

White pants... jury is out.

Totally.:puke:

The Steelers put together their two most dominating performances last year in the throwbacks. Against the Bills and the Rats. Good omen?

I'm all for it.

They just didn't want to waste all the money they spent on them last year.

You know how cheap the Rooney's are. :chuckle:

How do ya know they're using them again this season? What games?

That would be awesome! I loved how we kicked some ratbird a$$ while wearing the throwbacks. It seems they help the players get pumped up for the game.
