    As was the play back then
    I guess that make it appropriate for the anniversary.
    I only hope our PLAY does not deteriorate to a throwback level of ineptnesss.

    Steelers To Wear 1934 Throwback Uniforms in Week 5
    Posted 4 hours ago

    For the fifth straight season, the Steelers will wear their 1934 throwback uniforms.

    The Steelers will wear their 1934 throwback uniforms for the team’s October 9 contest vs. the New York Jets at Heinz Field. This will mark the fifth straight season Pittsburgh will wear their 1934 throwback uniforms.

    The team first wore these in 2012 during the team’s 80th season in professional football. The Steelers donned their 1934 throwbacks twice that season, once versus the Washington Redskins and once versus the Baltimore Ravens. In 2013, the team wore them against the Detroit Lions, and in 2014, Pittsburgh wore them against the Indianapolis Colts. Last season, the Steelers sported their 1934 throwbacks against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    What they’ve said in the past about the throwback jerseys:

    Team President Art Rooney II on the jerseys from when they were introduced in 2012, the Steelers 80th season: “We wanted to use a jersey that we wore early in our history as we celebrate our 80th season. We have never used those jerseys since the 1934 season and I think our fans will be excited to see our players wear them in action this year.”

    Defensive end Cameron Heyward: “I love representing the tradition and the history. I wish we could wear all of our throwback jerseys. It pays tribute to them and it’s kind of cool to see what we would have looked like back then.”

    Tackle Marcus Gilbert: “It’s a change-up. Wearing jerseys like this is meaningful. It represents the past and great history of the Steelers organization. We will wear it with pride. We will wear it with swag.”

    Receiver Antonio Brown: “I love it. You have to love it. It’s something special that the 1934 team wore it. You have to appreciate the value of what a Steelers uniform means. It’s not about the look; it’s all about the tradition and the history behind it. It’s something special. It’s unique and I think it’s going to be something great.”

    Didn't realize this was the 80th anniversary year. Great reason to win #7.

    This isn't the 80th anniversary year...the bumblebee throwbacks debuted in the 80th anniversary year (team was founded in 1933).
