I've seen a few petitions on the web for reverting the Steelers jerseys back to the older looking block lettering and numbering. I think that it sort of suits our style of play, being that we play more like teams from yester-year.

Not saying I'd be all for the change, but I think it would be something to consider. Thoughts?

I'd rather they spend the money on keeping Heath Miller.

I like the block numbers better but I can live with the current uniforms. Steelers is Steelers.

Numbering, I care little about. I am not a huge fan of the alternate unis though.

I'd prefer the old block numbers but not enough to sign a petition.

I'd like the alt uni's if they wore the black helmets with them.

There is a precedent. This is from 1965. They were in what we call "throwbacks" and in black helmets....

These uniforms had the TV numerals on the sleeves and helmet numerals. Of all the uniforms, this is probably my favorite. But I like them all, even the 1933.

I made a McFarlane of that one.

Me too. But new unis are about selling more jerseys. And that's making money.

I like the current numbers and I also like the throwbacks.

I don't mind the current numbers. Makes the Steelers modern and classic at the same time.


As long as the jersey design doesn't go RADICAL changes, I'm fine with it.

What if our Defense wore the Block Numbers and our offense keeps the same. After all our D continues to play like "yester-year". Our offense has changed drastically and I love it!:tt:

As you can probably tell, I'm for the "old block numbers", and yes I signed the petition. Block letters, No mascot, No chearleaders!!! Just hard nose footbal!!

Block letters huh? Never thought of that.

Now it has got me thinking. What about trying to sign a big RB?? or maybe get another logo put on the other side of the helmet?? and why dont the Steelers have cheerleaders?? :rolleyes:

I'm just throwing some ideas out there for possible petitions that nobody may have started yet. :noidea:

The 66 season was awesome......The home jerseys are great......If the away one had a black triangle and the mustard helmets that http://www.weirdwolf.net/FFP/images/1960/Pittsburgh67.gifwould be awesome..........http://go.steelers.com/MediaContent/2008/10/09/06/03-68team1966_97387.jpg

Man...I loved to watch Barry Foster run.

Back to the topic....the only alternative uniforms that should be mandated for use is the San Diego Chargers Powder Blue uniforms. I don't like the Chargers, but I love that look.

Don't care what the uniforms look like as long as they keep the logo on one side of the helmet only. They can get rid of that puke yellow helmet completely along with Steely McBeam. Steelers look best in black uniforms. White doesn't look scary. Black is ominous.

I like what we have now and the way they have been mixing it up a bit. Our uniforms now look sleek and modern, but have maintained that good Steelers look.

Black and gold, and I'm fine...We gotta have the best colors in the NFL!!

That kit is bad bad bad! I really like the 75th aniversary kit. Here is a question why are the steelers colours listed as black and gold when its more like black and mustard yellow! :noidea:

Steely McBeam is a bit hummmmmmm... & whats wrong with cheerleaders? To much testosterone going on, pretty ladies in little skirts always goes down well in my book.
