Don't know about anyone else, but I think the Steelers need to wear their white jersays for this game. Call me superstitious, but they are technically still on the road. I grew up in Pittsburgh, live in Boise ID now and ALOT of Seahawks fans talkin trash already!

I knew what this post meant before I opened it. The Steelers need to wear their white for the Super Bowl. I was thinking that yesterday.

Steelers have been designated the home team and presumably will wear the black. We are 3-1 wearing the black shirts in Super Bowls.

Guess that means, by my Kentucky math", they are 1-0 in white. Sounds like good odds either way. Of course last time they were in Ford Field, they wore white & that didn't turn out so well. :dang:

I am not superstitious. I just love the black uniforms.

YO MAN!! I'm from Boise too!! I live up on the bench area .. Nice to see another Boise Steelers fan here.. I used to watch the games at the Players Club a long time ago but have had sunday ticket for about 9 years now so I can watch Steelers everytime.. Anyways.. I would love to see them in black as all there previous super bowl wins were in the black if I can remember correctly.. It really doesn't matter as i'm not supersticious but if they feel that's workin for them it's all good.. anyways.. welcome to the best board on the net!!

Alright! There are a lot of Steeler fans here, 4 of them right where I work! Is that Players Club the one by Westy's Lanes?

Although they have "BEN" hot with the white, I say go with the black. When people think of Steeler Football there first thing that comes to your mind is the black jersey.

I think they wore white when they beat Minnesota for their first title.

They wore white to get the whole thing started back in sb IX! That started the run of 4.....I say keep the tradition let's wear white and start a run of 4 again!

Hello Steeler fans. I am new to the site, but am a HUGE Steeler fan, out of L.A. I hope we wear our Steeler black jerseys, even though we have had recent success with the white. Go Steelers!

Yes it is. It's a bigtime Steelers joint.. In fact one time I was there and a guy from Pittsburgh came in and was so shocked at how many there were he had to get a picture to show his homeys back home.. It was sweet.. I as well have 3 or 4 guys at work that are Steelers fans but no one as big a fan as I.. They seem to watch on occasion if they have nothing better to do where as I can't do anything BUT watch the Steelers.. So if a reletive dies they need to wait till after the game.. lol.. anyways.. i work for Cableone here in town so you better snag a dvr for the big game so you can record it :tt:

Go with the white...don't change anything. There best SB defensively was IX. Where they didn't allow a single offensive point.

Most certainly wear the white. We've been wearing it the majority of the time since the last 4 games of the regular season, and all thru the playoffs.

Wear the white !

also, I think Ben will be able to see the seattle defenders better in white. If they wore green they would blend in like one of the other posters noted...


HERE WE GO STEELERS

I'd like to see the black, and here's why, I believe it was Desha Towsend who commented on the ominous look and legacy of the black jersey. When you see the steelers on NFL films or past superbowl highlights they're werring the black jersey. I know if I'm a seahawk, and I see those black Jerseys, I'm picturing Joe Green, Jack Hamm, Lambert, Stallworth, Swan, Franco, Bradshaw ect. There's ALOT of history in that black jersey than any educated football fan can't ignore. Plus it's the players winning the games, not the jerseys.

The black shirts are prettier but they need to wear the white ones!

Bill Cowher just announced in his press conference that we are wearing the whites.

At this stage I guess it is any edge you can get, but my mental picture of Steelers football does not include the road unis - nobody refers to the "White & Gold."

I guess Cowher does not want to get second guessed for switching unis while on a winning streak.

I prefer the Black Jerseys. I have hated the white jerseys for a long time. I would rather see us in the Black and Gold not White and Gold.

Sounds like the final decision is WHITE.....

I would prefer the Black Jerseys.. but, hey.. THEY STILL ROCK!

White makes ya look bigger, plus it's hard to argue with three away playoff road wins with the white jersey.

I'm going with this line of reasoning...plus, I'm sure Cowher put it up to the team to vote, and I bet as a sign of solidarity most if not all the players voted for white.

Maybe it's a marketing ploy by Cowher to help move more licensed merchandise & increase royalty payments that will help pay the $$ required to re-sign Ben & Troy:)

All the Steelers replica jerseys are the black unis - if they win in Detroit then the white jerseys can be marketed as the colors worn at the Super Bowl, bringing in both new customers and repeat purchasers who own the black jerseys.

I am not superstitious. I just love the black uniforms.

If you were a REAL Steeler fan :wink: you'd know they didn't wear black in their very first SB win against the Vikings (Superbowl IX).

And Cowher today said they'll be wearing the White.

I'm mixed I guess. I like the black jerseys but i think it would be appropriate for this particular season that we were white. I guess its ok! Wouldnt wanna loose momentum.
