Anyone have a thought as to how they'd re-make the Steeler image given the chance? Maybe put together a concept with new logo, uni's, etc.?

And no... the Steelers logo/uniform isn't inviolate. They've messed with it themselves over the years, most recently ditching their block numbers for those god-awful slanted ones about a decade ago.

I had heard the equipment man only got in half the order of decals for the helmet, thus could only do one side per helmet.

History Of The Steelers Logo

The Steelers are the only NFL team that sports their logo on only one side of the helmet. At first, this was a temporary measure because the Steelers weren't sure they would like the look of the logo on an all-gold helmet. They wanted to test them before going all-out.

Equipment manager Jack Hart was instructed to put the logo only on one side of the helmet - the right side. The 1962 Steelers finished 9-5 and became the winningest team in franchise history to date. The team finished second in the Eastern Conference and qualified for the Playoff Bowl. They wanted to do something special for their first postseason game, so they changed the color of their helmets from gold to black, which helped to highlight the new logo.

Because of the interest generated by having the logo on only one side of their helmets and because of their team's new success, the Steelers decided to leave it that way permanently.

Today's helmet reflects the way the logo was originally applied and it has never been changed.

If the steelers wanted to do a uniform change, i wouldn't mind seeing the yellow yolk come back.

Honestly, i would love to see the steelers go back to the block numbers. Other than that, leave them be.

The helmet is great and unique. It seems the modernists hate unique looks.
