(sorry if this is a re-post question)

When will the Steelers wear the throwback uni's with the bug-light-yellow helmets? It would make sense against the ravens, but someone told me it was actually coming this weekend vs the pats.

Couldn't find any information on this. I thought I overheard someone say they we're wearing them against the Pat's, but i'm not sure.

Just thinking that myself, but we never have had much luck against the Pat's. I believe we beat B'more a few times in them. Wouldn't curse them just yet!

I like them, but the black is just mean, I would rather see them wear the black jersey's and bury those fools!

I still don't get why we use these, a 70's throwback would be a million times better, even if they're very similar to the normal uniform...

Why that particular throwback? I'm guessing just to have a third option. The 70ís ones make more sense to us fanís, but the black/yellow jersey is more of an actual alternate color scheme.

And the bug-light-fluorescent-yellow helmets are growing on me.

I actually like the throw backs. I guess I am in a minority. Really I don't care what they wear as long as they beat the Pats.

I like them a lot as well. I always thought the Steelers gold was very unique, and to have more of it? Pretty cool if you ask me.

Love the throwbacks, hate the yellow-azz helmets though. That uniform would look SHARP if they wore the normal black helmets with them. They look like street signs with those yeller hats....

I like the helmets. Maybe a little too bright, but not bad. Although the black helmets would look pretty sick with the jerseys.

I'm not a big fan of the alternate/throwback craze in the NFL, but the Steelers' throwbacks I do actually really like. I know I'm in the minority, but I dig the yellow helmets. I don't know why people have such an issue with the helmets being yellow when Green Bay has worn yellow helmets for decades and no one cares. I guess its just because it's different from what we're all used to.

Regarding the rest of the league, the only other throwbacks I can think of that I like are the Buffalo ones and (dodges rocks) the Pats' throwbacks. The worst of the lot have to be those piss and shit colored Broncos throwbacks. God, those things are hideous. It's bad enough when you color your uniform to look like a pair of dirty underwear, but then they had to top it off with those ridiculous striped socks. Why oh why didn't they just model the throwbacks on the old red and blue uniforms that Elway wore in the 80s? Those were much better.

Other examples of throwbacks and alternate uniforms that should have never seen the light of day are those awful light blue and yellow Eagles uniforms that made them look like a cross between the Michigan Wolverines and a basket of Easter eggs, and those puke green Seattle Seahawks uniforms. The Seattle uniforms have been known to cause uncontrollable projectile vomiting if you stare at them for too long.

Haha, I forgot about those ones. I have a friend that is a Bucs fan and he really digs those ugly uniforms. No idea why, other than nostalgic reasons, I suppose.

I like our throwbacks now better than the ones with the yellow triangles or whatever around the shoulders

Everyone I've adjed in person loves them. I even heard a Ratbird fan say the are "the coolest throwback anyone has tried this year" referring to the year every team tried out throwbacks 07 i think

I watched the interview with hines ward on the patriots and he is at his locker. Inside the locker is the throwback jersey and helmet.

Nice to see Barry Foster looking healthy and strong. Man, what a force he was, albeit for only a short period of time.

OMG I don't remember those AT ALL! I've seen most of the games. I think my mind may be repressing the memory.
