This is the week we break out those awful bumblebee throwback jerseys I believe. I will be watching the game in Black and White so as to not burn my brain.

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has a thing for dopey socks. He is likely to be very jealous of the opposing Pittsburgh Steelers this weekend, because they will be sporting the dopiest socks in NFL history.

The rest of the uniform only gets dopier as you work up from the black and gold striped socks. You can see them on various players behind Charlie Batch in the photo to the right here's a better look at them if you can take your eyes off of Charlie for a minute. Only on Project Runway will you find someone so proud of such ridiculous clothing.

And they are ridiculous. They're disturbingly ugly, and Batch looks like the Hamburglar, if the Hamburglar had been homeless for 15 years. I'm starting to like it, though. If you're going to go ugly, I say go big. It's easy to rock a throwback jersey if you've got cool throwback jerseys. The Chargers in their old AFC joints? No problem. The Lions in their customary Thanksgiving gear? Why not?

The Steelers looking like wayward rugby players who accidentally stumbled into a marathon where someone taped numbers on their chest? That takes some fortitude.

The Steelers play the Redskins at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday. If you miss them then, you'll get a second chance in Week 11, when the Steelers play the Ravens in a Sunday night game.

Pittsburgh Steelers react to 'bumblebee' uniforms

By Kareem Copeland
Around the League Writer
Published: Oct. 27, 2012

The Pittsburgh Steelers' throwback jerseys are so, um, gaudy that Ike Taylor had to make up a word to describe them.

"I like them. I like the throwback, man. That bumblebee, jailhouse look from back in the day," Taylor told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "I'll try to put 'swag' and 'swurve' in the same word. How about 'swavvin'? You got to have that Looney Toons accent like Porky the Pig when you say it, too.

Pretty sure "bumblebee, jailhouse" wasn't what designers were going for ahead of Sunday's matchup against the Washington Redskins. Probably not a good idea to have the team resemble a 1930's chain gang. The big guys especially.

"I don't like to call them fat, but on the big, healthy guys, it's not going to look too good," Taylor said.

"Sideways stripes don't do me no good," nose tackle Casey Hampton said. "Honestly, any uniform does me bad, so it can't really get any worse than it already is."

The Steelers throwbacks have not been met with much fanfare. Only 14 percent of voters on a Post-Gazette online poll liked the uniforms. They're even worse than the Packers' recent throwbacks with the blue jersey, yellow dot in the middle and doo-doo brown helmets. That's quite the accomplishment.

Peter King unloads on the bumblebee unis this morning

I think this is what I didn't like about Week 8:

a. One word for those Steeler uniforms: vomitous.

b. Seriously, NFL: We know why you do these throwback uniforms. (Throwup, in this case.) You want fans to go buy another type of Steelers jersey for the holidays. That's what this about. And I defy you to find one self-respecting Steeler fan who would be caught dead in those mustard-and-mud striped jobs with the stupid numbers. And the socks. I think Margaret Hamilton wore those in The Wizard of Oz as the Wicked Witch of the West.

c. If I called those jerseys ugly, it'd be a compliment compared to what they really are.

d. Dying to find out how you got James Harrison to put that garish garbage on.

the only fun thing about them was referring to them as the Pittsburgh Killer Bees throughout the entire game

Other than that - it is time for them to get an alternate jersey IMO. The 80th anniversary patch was enough for me.

More hatred for the prisoner uniforms from Thomas Boswell of The Washington Post

Pretty bad when a team wearing Three Stooges uniforms makes comedy of the Redskins

Thomas Boswell :
People love to rate all-time-ugly uniforms. But those were the first uniforms I ever saw that when I first glimpsed them I actually let out a "Arrrghh!"

They were THE WORST I have ever seen in any sport. Except maybe the year the Chicago White Sox wore the black-and-white uniforms that looked like short pants.

In a way, the Steelers HAD to win. How would you like to have to wear those uniforms, then for eternity be reminded that the day you wore them you lost (to the Redskins).

Obviously, they aren't the prettiest things ever, but I really don't get the "worst uniform in any sport ever" sentiments I've heard from a lot of places this weekend. There have been plenty of WAY worse uniforms in hockey and basketball and I still don't think they're as bad as the old Eagles or Packers throwbacks.

Scandal rocks Pittsburgh Steelers as historical accuracy of throwback uniforms questioned

By Rebecca Rollett on Nov 2

http://cdn0.sbnation.com/uploads/chorus_image/image/2498099/154884121.0_standard_500.0.jpg

And to think we were worried about minor stuff like the Emmanuel Sanders injury or the Ta'amu legal troubles...

In a hard-hitting piece of uniform-related journalism, Phil Hecken of Uni-Watch reveals the questionable historical basis for the "1934" throwbacks. In a patient unravelling of the evidence trail, including a trip to the Pennsylvania State Library in Harrisburg, Hecken reveals the uniforms were first worn not in 1934 but in 1933.

Hecken's evidence is based upon viewing the microfilm collection of Pittsburgh newspaper photos of games in 1933 and 1934. According to Hecken, the unis were only worn once in a game, in November of 1933. (They were also worn in a team photo in 1934.) The game was vs. Brooklyn, and the Pittsburgh (football) Pirates were beaten 32-0. Thank heavens I didn't know this before last Sunday's game—I would have been even more of a wreck than I was.

But, shocking as this presumably deliberate misinformation is, the scandal doesn't stop there. According to Hecken's evidence, the number blocks actually had a yellow background rather than a white one. Although the Steelers facility displays a jersey purporting to be from 1934 with white number blocks, its authenticity has not been confirmed. Will the deceit never end?

Isn't there enough scandal on the team now, what with Emmanuel Sanders' upcoming visit to the league offices (at least once he can get to them,) DeAngelo Hall's accusations of dirty play on the part of a Steelers wide receiver, or the brutal treatment of a peaceable visiting quarterback (RGIII) at the hands of S Will Allen and OLB James Harrison? You would think they would at least get the unis right.

O tempores, o mores! But, because of the tireless search for the truth of Mr. Hecken, veritas vincit. Thank heavens there is still a man in the media who isn't afraid to challenge the great and confront them with their faults. I implore the Steelers organization to own up to their duplicity, right the ship, and once again be able to hold their heads high among their peers in the National Football League. And as for those of you considering the purchase of a throwback jersey, caveat emptor.
