They can't be serious with this jerseys. I thought the old one's were bad. We will look like a bunch of charlie brown wannabee's. They can't really think that anyone is going to buy those things. The might be worse than the ones we wore in the early 2000's. Who comes up with this stuff. What are your thoughts on these things. I am very dissapointed that they would make us wear something like this. It's terrible.

dont buy it then. nobody is making you wear it.

i still cant believe anyone would pay $80-300 for a shirt made in china in the 1st place. if the nfl wants anyone to line their pockets, they should hire 12 year old sweatshop workers.

anyways, the last throwbacks you are referencing are from 1994.

It's only 2 games a season if that, no big deal. They are pretty goofy but they are pretty unique also, it won't kill us to see them once or twice a year.

Definitely old school prison uniform status. But, I hope they destroy teams while wearing them.

My Lord these jerseys are hideous. I know they are replicas of what we used to wear in the 30's, but I'm not seeing the translation to the modern-day at this point, LOL. I guess we'll have to see what they look like on the field - I'm thinking they could possibly grow on me as sort of a quirky change-up twice a year.

Still, though - I know there largely the same as the uni's we wear all season, but BRING BACK BLOCK NUMBERS AS OUR THROWBACK!!!!

Those are literally block numbers. They look like little kid's playing blocks with a number on them. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

It's obvious that the team isn't going to make any money off of this jersey. What were they thinking. I think as a fan I would like to be told which games they are going to wear them so I can make arrangment's not to be there. Complete embarrisment. Why not make a 3rd jerseys. Maybe a gold on black or black on black with gold and white letters numbers.

They get upfront royalties and minimums. Trust me when I say, they make money on everything, if they didn't they would not do so a hideous outfit. The Rooneys should man up and have to wear a suit that looks like this. They look like characters that shoul dbe on the old Banana Splits or the New Zoo Reveiw show back in the 70's.

They can style all they want but it's absolutely impossible to look "bad ass" in those costumes.

Do they have any pictures with them wearing their wings?
Or are they saving them for the night of the school play?

I think next time they think of honoring their history, they should just stick to the patch

OR, go 70s Steelers - that look would look sweet on these guys

I'm still all for just a modern alternate - both of these ideas would make a heck of a lot more money IMHO

I'd love a 70s style Brown jersey

those retro uniforms are hideous, but sadly, they aren't the worst pick, as there are for more worse ones from the 1950s and early 60s. those black/white chain-gang outfits would make the Virginia-North Carolina prisons proud down here, lol. i am a transplant down here because of the US Navy and several jobs, but in my years here, i know the sheriffs would love to use some of those old Steeler prison uniforms on the inmates and work details. yuck.

Are Steeler Throwback Jerseys Coming At Bad Time?

Oct 24th, 2012 by Craig Gottschalk

The Steelers are making strides to overcome their early seasonal demons. The win over the Bengals was a large step in the right direction. The team desperately needs to keep the trend moving forward. Iím not so much a man of superstition, but I am a firm believer that you donít mess with the mojo when itís working.

The Steelers will be playing in their uniforms from 1934 when the Steelers were still the Pittsburgh Pirates. As you can see they are one of the biggest visual atrocities coming out of sports aside from Craig Sager. The Steelersí (or Piratesí) record during this time equaled the visual quality of those uniforms. The Steelers went 2-10 that season when debuting these uniís. The Steelers also have a fairy poor record when it comes to wearing any throwback uniform over the past decade.

Those two factors combined, I almost feel like the Steelers should hold off on wearing these things. Wonít they be taking a chance in channeling the Pirates of old along with their bad throwback record? Letís hope it doesnít mess up the winning mojo too much. Let the bumble bee references continue!

Steelers will wear absurd throwbacks this week

SImon Samano, USA TODAY

10:08PM EDT October 24. 2012 - Remember in 2009 when the Denver Broncos wore those throwback mustard yellow jerseys with the doo-doo brown pants? We hoped those would never return, and thankfully they haven't since then.

Unfortunately, though, we'll have to watch the Pittsburgh Steelers play this Sunday in these:

http://www.gannett-cdn.com/media/USATODAY/gameon/2012/10/24/steelers.unis-4_3_r560_c560x380.jpg?e30e514401c44b160da53c4fd24e ce0b885793ba

The Steelers will dawn these ridiculous throwbacks from 1934 this Sunday against the Redskins.(Photo: Steelers.com)

What you're looking at here are throwbacks from 1934 ... that should've stayed in 1934.

Look, I'm not a modernist or anything. I love the sight of the Chargers' powder blues and the Rams' old-school blue-and-yellows. But these Steelers get-ups make me want to eye-gauge myself. They're ridiculous.

I'm a fan of the 2012 throwbacks. They are still black and gold jerseys, and represent a part of Steelers history. I might think differently about them had they been some sort of modern creation, or a jersey the Steelers did not actually wear but was randomly drawn up.
