Steelers Nike Pro Combat Jersey Sketch Leaked

Earlier in the season, the NFL announced that Nike will replace Reebok as the league\’s official uniform supplier in 2012 and a Nike official said changes are coming to NFL jerseys. Nike Brand President Charlie Denson was quoted as saying that the change would be similar to changes that Nike has made to college football jerseys.

Some sketches surfaced today of some rumored concept designs and The Steelers one below is quite ugly. You can see the other ones in the AFC North here.

It has come to light that these are fakes, THANK GOD!

    I think what kills me the most is that font. Yikes.

  • Julian Gonzalez

    The sketch does not consider how it would look in the offensive line with 300 lbs guys showing their sculptural body.

    Why in the world is the Steelers helmet YELLOW? The yellow helmet they use now is part of a throwback uniform. Hello ……. Steelers fan are not into the yellow helmet at all. The teams steelers logo goes on a black helmet. Oh god help us ….. these uniforms are terrible! Nike please don’t do this!

  • Tim

    Why does Nike get to decide what the unis look like?

  • frank eanotti

    they just blow we won 6 championship with ones we have now! yhey look like college uniforms yuck

  • Swanny

    Nike does not decide what the uniforms will look like! The NFL teams have to agree to any changes made by Nike. The Rooneys would never allow Nike to destroy our uniforms like this. I do tend to believe these were leaked by Nike to test public opinion. They knew most of these were to radical, but wanted to see the reaction from fans. Especially the really young people!! Nike is getting to big, I hope Under Armour gives them a run for their money!!!!

  • T. Hauser

    What Swanny said, UNLESS the individual teams decide to change them, the designs will not and cannot change.

  • SDENARDI

    I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO DISAPPOINTED!! DIE HARD STEELER FAN AND I’M IN SHOCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NO WAY COULD THEY MESS UP THE #1 JERSEY IN THE WORLD THIS BAD…(not to mention other teams are hidious as well..) THEY LOOK LIKE ACTION FIGURE DOLLS……C’MON NIKE GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER…THIS IS FOOTBALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SERIOUSLY DISTURBING :(

  • Jayjayswanson

    Couldn’t agree more. I bleed black and gold. There is no way this would happen. Definitely a FAKE!!! That uniform is beyond disgusting!!!!! Look at the left sleeve. HAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!! HORRIBLE!!!! BEYOND HORRIBLE!!!

  • Jhammes93

    i love the steelers too and although i dont particularly like the new nike pro combat uniforms. i think its time for some change in the league

  • Chuck

    Personally, I hate the Nike brand and their freakish uniform styles. Football is a great game with great tradition. Sometimes less is more in life. What is more tough and intimidating than some of the classic uniforms such as Pittsburgh, Oakland, Chicago, New York Giants, etc. The Nike uniforms are a mess and look like sloppy finger-painting. Puke!!

  • Frank33

    what game is the steelers wearing their throwbacks this season?

  • Jayjayswanson

    Well, this is a little late. Already saw they wore them against the Ravens. I believe they’ll wear them against the Browns on Thurs. night football.

  • Trab24
