Thoughts? Or is this irrelevant?

It is, in a way, "irrelevant" to the game - but I like it. I'm glad we're wearing the white jerseys even if for no other reason than we wore them when we won XL.

Since they were considered the road team, I consider it insignificant. But I do like the fact that we are undefeated in the Super Bowl in our white away jerseys.

The reason I feel it was significant for Super Bowl XL is becaue we were considered the "home" team and had first choice, and we chose the white jerseys because we had won 3 on the road to get there.

i like to think it's more of a tradition than anything. they wore whites everytime they won. so, why not just stick with that? blacks would be cool...but just go with white.

throwbacks would be nice too IF it was the 75the season. but it's the 76th and it'd be just weird. haha!

also, it just donned on me, we wore black jerseys the time we lost to the Cowboys. not like i am superstitious or anything, but i'd ay for the sake of arguement and tradition...let's go with the whites. =)

Can't help but love them in their Black & Gold - but a win in their whites will make 3 wins in each.

I remember being a little disappointed at the decision for XL, but once they get on the field - it's all good. They have a bit more of that basic smashmouth football look to them. A good contrast to the Cardinals with their flashy reds.

I hate it.

Maybe there will be a monsoon and it'll be 90 degrees for the game.

i just don't want to see more red in the stands than black and gold. i just love when the Steeler Nation comes out to play...and they come out everywhere! haha!

The white jerseys are just fine with me! They haven't had much luck in their blacks in the SB, so why change what's worked for them so far? Haha. :tt02:

Well, the AFC is the away team, so I really don't think we had much of a choice..

What do you mean? They won SB's X, XIII, and XIV wearing their black jersies.

O'Donnell-free Steelers are undefeated in their Blacks.

Whites shirts are fine as long as Arizona's o-line don't where white gloves. Nevermind they won't make them calls anyways so I quess it don't matter.

this is great. think of how many home games the steelers have played into the evening hours with sno and wind chill this year.

they are not conditioned to playing in 70 degree sweaty weather (not since latrobe).

any little bit helps.

other than that, it doesnt matter. they will be in "away" jerseys but have the "hometown" crowd (and advantage) behind them.

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

Too bad for the cardinals the majority of the fan base won't be wearing red!

Whiz should know from his trips to Tampa with the Steelers that this place is like Heinz Field South!!

Just because the players are wearing white doesn't mean we have to. Although the white jersey is starting to grow on me a little since the last super bowl win.

Cool beans! :applaudit::thumbsup: Reminiscent of their 2005 season! :tt02:

Besides - it will be easier to see them crossing the goal line in the EZ at least 4-5 times. :tt:

The whites are cool looking. They've been selling more away jerseys over the home the last few years and the rest of the NFL fans voted them(Steeler away unis) one of the best in the NFL.

I'd say either the aways or the throwbacks for the Superbowl

I know they're not wearing the throwbacks but they are really cool.

The home blacks are ok but they should go back to block lettering for all unis.

the block lettering reminds me too much of the other teams who haven't really updated their jerseys or logos yet. i love the new look numbers and stripes and colors. i think a 3rd color jersey would be cool. but, i wouldn't want it to look like a giant block of cheese!

NO to the third color jersey!!

The retro ones are alright...

I wouldn't be opposed to the block lettering, but I like these just as well...

Maybe a slightly updated block lettering. I hate how teams have tweaked their unis, some are so bad I could puke. They try to look so modern but by the time they've worn them for a few years they look horrible.

The Steelers, Raiders, Packers, and Dallas all have cool oldschool unis that havent hardly changed. I'm telling you, bring back the block lettering and the grey facemasks, black shoes. Keep the throwbacks for two games a year and keep kicking ass. Just no yellow shirts.

The Steeler aways are still the best

I don't think I like it.

The last game this team lost was at Tennessee in the whites. Since that game, they're on a 3-game winning streak in the blacks.

It's not gonna matter though...

This is all The Whiz.

As the hometeam, they pick first.

Whiz still thinks the Steelers power is on the dark side of the uni's.

What he doesn't know is that the white jerseys will be easier for Ben's damaged brain to pick out his receivers in the 10 sec he will have to throw every down.

maybe the steelers are just wearing the white jersey's so it can bounce some of the heat rays of the sun away.. they don't want to be burnt.. lol

There won't be any sun shining at 6:00 PM on the east coast. The Super Bowl is a night game. :drink::drinkup::getdown::chug::jump::alcoholic::: ::eyecrazy::yuck::puke:
