I'd HATE to see a new Steelers uniform. The Black and Gold are as classic as they come and are in the same mold as Green Bay, Chicago and Kansas City. Even when they went to the "bubble" numbers in 1997 (Nike as well) it took me YEARS to come around to them and missed the blocked letters from time to time. I love them as they are, no way should they EVER consider a new make.

I wasn't saying that they should totally replace the current ones, just have a new alternate to be used once or twice a year instead of a throwback. And the Georgia ones are a horrible comparison, not every Pro Combat uni is as stupid as those or Oregon uniforms or anything, Nike's done plenty of work over the past few years that pays homage to classic uniforms and still looks fresh.

That sucks Nike got the contract, I have 10 Steeler jerseys and none will be current. I liked our current throwbacks.

I hate the throwbacks we have now, I'm always disappointed when they bust them out for big games. I went to a game at Heinz for the first time this year since 2006 and what do I see when I get in the stands? Those damn yellow helmets and white pants (even though obviously nothing could ruin the experience for me - oh yeah, that 92-yard drive.) I too would like to see them bring back the block numbers, actually permanently, but a few games a year will do.

I'm good with that.

Just don't bring back those horrible throwbacks from 1994.



Here's the options.

Good golly, out of all those choices in the picture, I think the 1994 throwback is the least of all those huge evils.

If they wear the Batman's from '67 onto the field today-- they would get laughed out of the stadium. Those are GOD AWFUL looking....

I think the current throwbacks are great (minus the yellow-azz helmets).

I love the throwbacks we have now! But if we change I say let's go with the 1934 uni's also...
