    "New" Steelers Uniforms

    http://www.post-gazette.com/stories/...s-look-629788/

    I'm a bit disappointed that the Steelers uni's are staying just about entirely the same. My hope was that they would have done a real refresh on the intimidating black & gold. Maybe using a matte black or carbon fiber or something cool. Nike has done such a good job with Oregon, it bums me out that the Steelers are still with the same old look. Don't get me wrong, I don't dislike the Steelers uni's. I just thought that this would be a chance to do something really cool. Alas...

    The only potentially good news is that the throwbacks are going away. Hopefully, the new ones will be better than the crap they've been sporting the past few years.

    DON'T MESS WITH PERFECTION! What's next, adding the logo to the left side of the helmet? I wouldn't have been upset though if they would have brought back the block numbers, but I gave up that fight years ago.

    Most of the jersey's pretty much stayed the same. Seattle added neon green to their uniforms....ugly. Carolina changed the look of their Panther, so their helmet changed.

    Im not upset that they didnt change I like the way they look. Although I am interested to see what Nike wouldve done if they had changed

    This just seemed like a great opportunity to refresh the B&G in a powerful way. The uni's are cool, but not perfect. There are so many cool ideas that could have been used, but instead they just settled.

    For the record, the block numbers were great... in the 1970's.

    I wish we would get new throwback unis, definitely not a fan of the current ones we have.

    The only change I would have liked is the block numbers. We have the best uniform in the nfl, I would have been extremely ticked if they changed it

    You're getting your wish. The Steelers are changing up their throwbacks this season.

    Yeah, the ones they've worn the past few seasons are really terrible. Fortunately, they are changing those. Although, I'm not a big fan of having throwbacks in the first place.

    Oregon's unis were/are horrid. I was worried about the new ones as everything Nike touches they screw up. Some of that crap they have been putting on the field the past few years is flat out putrid.

    No way should the Steelers unis be changed. The best unis in the league are the ones that don't change. Steelers, Colts, Packers to name a few.
