Q: Will the Steelers wear the throwback jerseys again this year and if so what games? Thanks.

Rich Woodward, San Diego

BOUCHETTE: Yes, they will wear them for two home games, including the one Oct. 4 against the team from San Diego. They also will wear them, as usual, Dec. 27 against Baltimore. I don't know why there's fascination with those uniforms and ugly yellow helmets, but there you have it.

i love the white pants!! they are by far the best part of the throwbacks. i also like the jersey's a lot but i hate the helmets. i think it would look better with the black helmets

Wow am i the only one that likes that whole uni?

I would hate it as a regular uniform but it works for as an alternate.

And don't we always beat the ravens when wearing them?

Wow, the difference of opinions here is staggering.

For me, I love the throwback jersey, like the throwback helmet, and hate the throwback pants.

i like the neatness of the jersey in being that it is simple, but i like white numbers on a black jersey, yellow does not do it for me, i like the yellow helmets, but i think the post above me be on to something, our standard black helmets would look cool with it, the pants are sweet, not as sweet as our standards but they are really neat...i guess there is quite a difference in opinion with this one.....we do beat the rats in the unis so i say wear them all the time against the birds

Yup, these unis turn James Harrison into a stark raving lunatic against the Ratbirds each year. We should continue this tradition until Baltimore petitions the league to stop it (like they whined about not wanting to play in Pittsburgh in prime time).

Love the jersey's myself, maybe its the block numbers. Didn't care for the helmets at first, but I am used to them now.

Yeah, I think the block numbers have a lot to do with their appeal. I will never understand why they ever changed to crappy rounded numbers. :evil:

sorry, not diggin the gold helmets. I'll deal with the jerseys and pants. But those helmets have got to go. Of course, if the Chargers wear the powder blues against us, that's all we will hear about, because, well, it is pretty friggen cool.

I love the whole thing. The helmets are AWESOME. Pants are great and Jerseys are great. I don't know what the obsession is with the block numbers though.

Because unlike those ugly uniforms the block numbers actually look good.

I wish they'd only "throw back" to the 1970s uniforms.

C'mon...just look at them side by side. There's no comparison. Block numbers rule! You can still incorporate the logo on the left shoulder like we do now, but I think we need to go back to the block numbers, man!

Absolutely, positively despise the throwback uniforms.

Do wish that we would go back to the block numbers though.

Maybe we should start an online petition for the block numbers and send it to the Steelers.

this is just my opinion, but does it not seem that our unirorms are more "yellow" now than the goldish yellow that they use to be, just look at rod woodson compared to deshea townsend in the picture, i think the stripe on the helmet is definetly more yellow now and it was more goldish yellow in the 90's....

Looks like Rod's pic was taken during a sunny day and Deshea's was taken under the night lights. Plus I would imagine picture taking technology has advanced quite a bit between those shots.

Oh yeah...and I'm still bummed that they're wearing those ugly throwbacks on Sunday night. :(

Well here we go... <girding up>

I think I like the current numbers better. I do love the block numbers, I have a Lambert throwback. But those block numbers, those were my Dad's Steelers. I'm 31, so the block numbers had more losing seasons than winning for me (or it seems so, at least). The new ones are my Steelers, my Super Bowl wins came with them...

I feel like the block numbers look a little stodgy and dated, and the new ones are a bit more modern and fit in better with today's NFL.

Bash away Block Number Supporters.

Yeah, I think it is just a function of the camera and the lighting (if you look at the Aaron Smith picture below the Deshea one, his uni seems to be the most golden of all of them).

I used to be a big block # guy, but more and more I find myself agreeing with you. :shock:
My only complaint about the new #'s is the way any number with a 1 looks. Too skinny or something
