Steelers to wear black in Tampa

September 22nd, 2010

Here are some tidbits from the Steelers

-- As expected, the Steelers will be the men in black Sunday in Tampa Bay. Buccaneers coach Raheem Morris said during a conference call Wednesday that Tampa Bay will wear its home (white) jerseys for the 1 p.m. game.

He downplayed the effect that the heat will have on the Steelers even though they had dehydration issues last Sunday in Tennessee -- and the black jerseys they will again have to wear.

“I don’t know if you can use psychological warfare on a team like the Pittsburgh Steelers,” Morris said. “You’re talking about a mentally tough team that’s out there with their head coach that’s also mentally tough, and I don’t think he’s going to let little things like that that affect him.”

-- Morris had nothing but good things to say about Byron Leftwich, whom he benched last season after the Buccaneers got off to an 0-3 start.

Leftwich eventually gave way at quarterback to rookie Josh Freeman, a first-round draft pick in 2009. Morris said Leftwich mentored Freeman, who will start against the Steelers, even after he lost his starting job.

“He really gave us great direction in the beginning. He taught Freeman how to become a quarterback, how to lead as a quarterback, how to prepare,” Morris said. “It just so happens the success of the team didn’t happen right away as far as his leadership and being under his control. And a lot things play into that. Always the first person to get the blame would be the quarterback and the head coach is next.

“He’s a great guy. He’s got that Magic Johnson-like smile that everybody loves, and he lights up a room. He was a pleasure to be around for a year for me.”

-- The Steelers have re-signed defensive tackle Steve McLendon to their practice squad. Also, outside linebacker James Harrison has been named AFC Defensive Player of the Week.

Harrison had 11 tackles and two sacks in the Steelers’ demolition of the Titans. He also forced two fumbles and recovered a fumble in the Steelers’ 19-11 win.

not like it helped the titans. i personally hate when hot weather teams do this. home jerseys are for home, and away jerseys should be for away. if they don't want to wear their own dark colors then ****ing change them.

that or they should let us wear the throwback yellow jerseys if they're gonna pull that noise

Speaking of throwbacks: Are we wearing the throwbacks anytime this year?

3 straight games in the Black. I wonder what the longest stretch of games in one uniform was. The SB XL run?

I love the black jersies because the Steelers look intimidating in them. I know it is tough on them for a game or two but those jersies are awesome. I don't feel like it is the same Steelers in those white jersies for some reason. I do think the visiting team should be able to choose an alternate dark jersey in these cases. After all some teams dark jerseys are powder blue. The Steelers should have a dark jersey that is mainly gold.

-From Wiki
Like many other NFL teams located in subtropical climates, the Buccaneers traditionally wear their white jerseys at home during the first half of the season — forcing opponents to suffer in the darker colors during the hot summers and autumns in Tampa. Additionally, the visitors' bench of Raymond James Stadium is located on the east side of the stadium, which is in direct sunlight for 1 p.m. eastern games. The west sideline is in the shade.

Since the new uniforms were adopted, the Bucs wear the red jerseys for the final four home games, and for nearly all night home games.

The Bucs have worn their red jerseys for all home postseason games except for a January 6, 2008 playoff match against the New York Giants, where the Bucs wore white, as the temperature that day was unseasonably high.

This makes me laugh and I don't know why.

I guess they will take any advantage possible to win.

Would you expect the Steelers to take every advantage they had to win a game?
