We should raise a "#42" flag before every home game like they do out in Seattle.

If the Steelers retired all the greats numbers, would there be enough to dress 53?
I would look like college with guys wearing the same number, or 00, 01, 02 etc.

12, 32, 52, 58, 59, 75 - I don't think will ever be used.

I'm also a 23 fan, but I haven't been able to find one yet...at least that looked any good. The jersey not the player.

I still, however, like the block style numbers.

To the left, to the left, all the jerseys need the numbers like the picture to the left.

12 Should be retired from the entire NFL simply because Terry Bradshaw was that freaking Awesome.

Everyone else with 12 should be forced to shoot themselves for daring to wear his number. Even Namath should apologize for wearing 12 prior to Terry and recognize that the Jersey number 12 was reserved by God for Terry and that by wearing it, Nathan practiced in anti-christ like behavior.

But heck...that's just me.

I got kinda dumb question. What kind of #s the fans pick? I understand that the retired #s r kinda no-touchy. But r the fans allowed 2 get any #s on their custom jerseys?

Anyhow know why the Steelers unofficially retire jersey numbers? It makes sense to have a ceremony and have the players' number mounted or displayed in a ring of fame. I could see us waiting until the player is inducted into the Hall of Fame.
