Default Steelers to Wear White Jerseys

http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/09020/943153-66.stm

Thoughts? Or is this irrelevant?

It is, in a way, "irrelevant" to the game - but I like it. I'm glad we're wearing the white jerseys even if for no other reason than we wore them when we won XL.

Since they were considered the road team, I consider it insignificant. But I do like the fact that we are undefeated in the Super Bowl in our white away jerseys.

The reason I feel it was significant for Super Bowl XL is becaue we were considered the "home" team and had first choice, and we chose the white jerseys because we had won 3 on the road to get there.

i like to think it's more of a tradition than anything. they wore whites everytime they won. so, why not just stick with that? blacks would be cool...but just go with white.

throwbacks would be nice too IF it was the 75the season. but it's the 76th and it'd be just weird. haha!

Can't help but love them in their Black & Gold - but a win in their whites will make 3 wins in each.

I remember being a little disappointed at the decision for XL, but once they get on the field - it's all good. They have a bit more of that basic smashmouth football look to them. A good contrast to the Cardinals with their flashy reds.

I hate it.

Maybe there will be a monsoon and it'll be 90 degrees for the game.

The white jerseys are just fine with me! They haven't had much luck in their blacks in the SB, so why change what's worked for them so far? Haha.
