    Steelers bring back "old" jersey style numbers

    I'am an old school nfl fan. I like how team uniforms used to look like back in the days when football was a battle, and the teams uniforms were a symbol of who they were. I have always wondered why the Steelers changed their jersey number from the classic "block" style to rounded numbers? I never liked the look it gave the jersey, especially not on a Steelers uniform. I seen a current photo of a Steelers jersey with the old block style , is this going to be a perminate look?

    You had me excited for a minute.

    The rounded numbers don’t bother me but I strongly prefer the block style. I’m old school I guess.

    I'd much rather see the old style block numbers. I've never been a fan of the curved style, they remind me of soccer.

    I'm actually over both the block and rounded styles. IMO, it would be better to do something more updated (perhaps similar to what Seattle has).

    You'd better not say that. The old schoolers will get all over you for trying to join the new millennium.
    From the 2010-2020 season, (A 10 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks.

    Dolphin fans in the 90ís who wanted to hold on to Don Shula for what he did in the playoffs in the 70ís...
    Are the same as Steeler fans (of 2020 ) holding on to Tomlin for what he did in 2008, with Cowher's players & coaches

    This is correct. You know why? Fads fade.

    Classic good looks never go out of style. I know this truth 1st hand.

    I never really notice a difference
    Taking pride in the fact that I'm right so often and he is wrong so often, that Steel Maniac has to have me on "Ignore"

    I suspect most folks arenít gonna notice a big difference unless we did Titansí numbers or weird Ravensí shadow numbers.

    Most logos are reverting back to simpler times right now too. Iíd expect more throwback designs.
