Steelers To Wear 1934 Throwbacks Against Lions

Just in case you have forgotten, the Pittsburgh Steelers will wear their 1934 throwback uniforms this coming Sunday for their home game against the Detroit Lions.

The Steelers wore the yellow and black striped jerseys last season in the home games against the Washington Redskins and the Baltimore Ravens and were 1-1 in those games. They won the game against the Redskins 27 – 12, but lost 13-10 to the Ravens in a game that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger did not play in.

The striped jerseys did not seem to be a hit with the fan base when they were originally showcased last season, but since that time it appears as though many have warmed up to them. Sunday will be the only time this season the Steelers wear them and it will likely be the last time ever.

They should once again create quite a buzz on Sunday.

    I like em……. not sure why

    They are ugly but for some reason I like them too.

  • SG

    Yep, great idea, honor that 2-10 season during this 3-6 year!

  • blackandgoldBullion

    I love it because it’s so different. Just like that Green Bay ancient one they bring out once in a while with the brownish pants. It reminds of some old back and white highlights of the past, or old movies.

    Will they have a different throwback uniform for next year? I liked the previous throwback design with the yellow helmet better than the prisoner stripes. I wouldn’t mind seeing them again.

    Honoring the rich history of the Steelers organization, love it! Bring on the bumble bees!!

  • John Hinton

    They can wear any uniform – just win!

    I don’t mind the bumble bee jerseys, but glad they are going to only wear it once at home rather than twice like last year. I prefer the traditional black jerseys the Steelers wear at home.

  • Those have to be the most hideous jerseys well except the time the Browns had on orange jerseys. That was just too much

    maybe it make the lions think its a diff team and we can pull the wool over there eyes

  • GunsDontKillWoodleyKills

    Bring back the block numbering. And stick to that.

  • Matt Manzo

    I wanna see all black unis! Especially black chin straps! I think it stays close to the original while still representing the future! And looks badass!

  • Rob H

    Although they do match up well with the season their having, I sincerely hope this is the last time I have to look at them.

  • Johnny Loose

    The Jailbird uniforms are AWESOME!!!! If you don’t like the uniform, that’s your opinion and perfectly fine. On the other hand, I think the people acting like it’s the ugliest thing they’ve ever seen might have some personal issues and maybe should look further into what really makes them so miserable. They’re uniforms people, throwbacks at that. This franchise has a rich history, good and terrible. Embrace it and enjoy what we have. I wish I had me a Heath Miller jailbird throwback for sure!!!

  • Ahmad

    Ha ha! I see what you did there in that last sentence!

  • Red Headed Golem

    They should wear leather helmets with them, too.
