Ugly Situation: Steelers Wear Throwbacks Against Ravens


There are only so many throwback uniforms that look cool and none exist in Pittsburgh.  Ok the baby blue jerseys from the Pens are pretty cool looking, and the jerseys from the early 90′s are cool only because they harken back to the days of Mario and Co. winning back to back Stanley Cups.  But these gold helmet monstrosities from the Steelers harken back to nothing short of something out of a nightmare.  THEY’RE UGLY!  Prime time, network TV – shouldn’t you want to ‘look your best?’  Maybe they are a distraction to the Ravens – they can’t see past the swarm of yellow helmets lined up at the line of scrimmage.  For whatever reason the Steelers have chosen to wear these things tonight, I hope they give them an added boost towards a victory.  But really Nation, how ugly are these things?

How ugly are the Steelers throwback uniforms?

    Not only are these uniforms ugly but they are Bad Luck.Some body let me know the stats but I believe we lose alot when they wear those stupid looking things. God Awful game.Thank God Harrison came back with a vengance.Tomlin really blew with his play calling.As a Vietnam Combat veteran I learned in combat that Hesitation Kills and I think that fied Goal delay of game call proves that point.Lets hope during the play offs the coaches get that act now mentality.

    Black and Gold Forever

    I agree…the uniforms are terrible. I think they’ve lost every game I watched when they’ve been wearing them.

    I CANT STAND THEM FUCKN UNiforms.. I need to look up there record when they ware um..who decides on when they do? Seems to really effect the defence..just plain awfull!

  • RickHarmon

    @davidrussell my thoughts exactly..they need to scrap those things for good..their jinxd..and if the Bungled keep playing like they are it may not be any playoffs..

  • RickHarmon

    If I was Tomlin I would have hesitated kicking that 51 harder too with THAT sub par kicker ..last time I checks he led The league in misses..I blame that ducking zone defence..92 yards in 2:34? Really? They playd not to lose when they should have been playing to win like against the Pats..Terrible red zone play calling once again by Arians didn’t help either..I thought him and Labor would take what they did last week and apply it to last night..but once they resort to THAT vanilla offence and that horrible zone cover 2.. I think they Both need to go next year along with William Gay
