Steelers jerseys: Use them, abuse them or put them on mothballs

I admit, this isn’t a news piece and really has nothing to do with OTAs in the Pittsburgh Steelers organization. That being said, I have a lot of material to address and stitch together when it comes to collecting Steelers jerseys. Jerseys are usually at the top of the sports merchandise world.

Steelers Throwback Jerseys Are Absolutely Primal

For a franchise known for its tradition and overall “lunch pail” mentality, the new jerseys are pretty awesome, as modeled by (new starting RB?) Isaac Redman.

Steelers unveil their 80th season throwback jerseys (Pictures)

The Steelers unveiled throwback jerseys they will wear this season to celebrate their 80th anniversary (the franchise began playing in the NFL in 1933). The team’s official Twitter account shared photos of running back Isaac Redman modeling the jersey, and I must say, they are hideous. They would definitely be right up there with the Broncos on our list of worst throwback jerseys ever.
Here are a few more photos of the uniforms:

Better get used to them, fans, because you’ll be seeing them in the upcoming season.

I look as much like Polamalu as the picture does (minus the shreddedness, of course), but it's comforting to see the uniforms weren't mangled with the league's hope to stay modern.

One advantage it could have is, interestingly for today's landscape, an increase in production for pass rushers.

Nike's flywire fabric is much more difficult to hold on to, which could prevent players from holding on by his opponent's jerseys. While every team's fanbase celebrates the future uptick in sacks by the respective members of their team who are obviously always held on every play, Bears LB Brian Urlacher joined the masses by declaring teammate, Bears DE Julius Peppers, is headed for greatness due to the jerseys.

The new jerseys did pique the interest of the Jersey Rules Committee, which has added this topic to its agenda for its kickoff meeting, scheduled for Twins home opening weekend at Target Field in preparation for Annual Jersey Day (July 24).
