When Pittsburgh hosts Washington this Sunday, the Steelers will be sporting a slightly different look, as they will debut their newest throwback uniform, these in honor of the franchise’s 80th season.
With the majority of teams now wearing some style of throwback at least once a year, if not more, there are certainly those that fall into the “What Not To Wear” category. Here are our choices for which throwback uniforms we would be perfectly happy not having to lay our eyes on again anytime soon.
Modeled after 1934 Pittsburgh Pirates
The Steelers were originally named the Pirates, taking their name after the baseball team. That’s all well and good, but when we look at this uniform, we think a bumblebee in prison garb, not pirate. Running back Isaac Redman certainly doesn’t seem thrilled with the “new” look and we can’t say we blame him.
