Steelers in Throwbacks tonight.

Recommended Posts

I just flipped to the game preview on ESPNEWS, and it looks like the Steelers are mounting another assault on the visual sense with their throwback unis.

How many times are they allowed to wear em this year? I thought the max was two.

It is two and this makes two, so after tonight, they're done.

...and with those throwbacks, the Eagles had their only good game out of eight this year...

If they were worn with the black helmets and some variation of yellow pants I don't think they would be half bad.

There's a reason why they only used them for 3 years. They shoudn't bring back vintage looks with no sense of appeal at all.

It was the first helmet that had the Steelers logo, and it was worn the last five games of 1962.

Then in the playoff bowl, they switched to this for the helmet..

But with the all gold stripes and gold numbers itd still be too much gold, imo.

If you ask me, these throwbacks are pretty sharp. The helmets aint the prettiest, but theyre historic, and thats why they have 'em. Thats my only complaint about them.

Which is why they should bring them back full-time (I may be the only person who vastly prefers them to the regular look).

Best thing about the Steelers' throwbacks? Block numbers. As it should be.

I may not like them better than their regular look, but I really do like these throwbacks.

Make that two people who prefers them to the current look. But I'm not a Steeler fan, so I'm not as invested in the Seelers.

Just to clarify: I prefer the Eagles' throwbacks to their current look.

Although if the Steelers continue to use the awful italic numbers, I just might start to prefer their throwbacks as well.

They look like Ampipe. I don?t care what anybody says; nice guy Eddie was the reason coach got the job at Minnesota State even though he took Maverick with him.

I think they are mud (but not as bad as the Eagles throwbacks). I think Iowa does the Steelers colors/unis better than the Steelers.

The Steeler throwbacks aren't bad. I wouldn't mind seeing the gold helmet with the current set.
