Are Steeler Throwback Jerseys Coming At Bad Time?


The Steelers are making strides to overcome their early seasonal demons.  The win over the Bengals was a large step in the right direction.  The team desperately needs to keep the trend moving forward.  I’m not so much a man of superstition, but I am a firm believer that you don’t mess with the mojo when it’s working.

The Steelers will be playing in their uniforms from 1934 when the Steelers were still the Pittsburgh Pirates.  As you can see they are one of the biggest visual atrocities coming out of sports aside from Craig Sager.  The Steelers’ (or Pirates’) record during this time equaled the visual quality of those uniforms.  The Steelers went 2-10 that season when debuting these uni’s.  The Steelers also have a fairy poor record when it comes to wearing any throwback uniform over the past decade.

Those two factors combined, I almost feel like the Steelers should hold off on wearing these things.  Won’t they be taking a chance in channeling the Pirates of old along with their bad throwback record?  Let’s hope it doesn’t mess up the winning mojo too much.  Let the bumble bee references continue!

    Generally speaking, I wish the Steelers were wearing these for another game for the reasons you stated. Having said that, what difference does it really make? Every game is important. If they’re going to wear them, this game is as good as any. And, IMO, I don’t think they’re that bad, I really don’t. If the pants were black, I’d be more impressed. Ha!

    I don’t know if there would ever be a good time to wear those uniforms. Terrible, but at least we’re not wearing those yellow helmets.
