When the Steelers unveiled their new throwback uniforms on Tuesday … well, let’s just say there wasn’t a ton of mass appeal.
Both Pittsburgh fans and non-fans alike ripped the unis to shreds (unfortunately not literally), comparing the retro look to “a character from Dr. Seuss’s books” or “a soccer player that just got out of jail” — and everything in between.
Now, one of the players who will have the unfortunate honor of actually putting this thing on his body has joined the fun.
Chiming in on Twitter, the always-outspoken James Harrison made it known he’s no fan of the old-school uniforms, either, urging the team to nix the nostalgia and do away with them.
True, James, but you’re off by two years; the Steelers first rocked these bad boys in 1934. I agree with you, though — having to play in front of millions looking like you wrapped yourself in police caution tape almost borders on cruel and unusual punishment.
LaMarr Woodley what say you?
I think he’s just trying to be nice.

I frequently visit NFL.com and their stories fuel many of my articles. I like the perspective of how much coverage a league website gives the Steelers. This time, I saw a quick breakdown of the schedule that was just released. I already broke down the opponents, but now we have a concept of timing. The first thing I saw was a week 4 bye week. I will take...
It’s 4/20 so you know what Mike Wallace is doing…waiting for another team to make him an offer he can’t refuse. What’d you think we were talking about? Get your mind right. Today is the deadline for restricted free agents to hop ship and join another team so Wallace has until 11:59.59 tonight to get an offer and sign it, or the Steelers get to keep his services for the year...
We’ve done absolutely nothing all day in anticipation of the Steelers showing off their new throwback uniforms for the first time and man, we’re we disappointed when Isaac Redman rolled out the 1934-themed duds.
Redzone tweeted that he loved the new unis and can’t wait to wear them but you have to think that’s only because he works for the team that allowed them to be...
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...

The Steelers are ready to play in their 80th season in the NFL and to celebrate they unveiled one of the worst uniforms I have ever seen. Big Ben should feel right at home in what looks like a prison uniform. The shot of Redman standing in the shower must have been Ben’s as well, we all know he does his best work...

This photo, apparently taken in a public restroom at the Steelers' facility, features Isaac Redman sporting the Steelers' latest money-making venture throwback uniform. It's a replica of the 1934 Steelers, a team that went 40 freaking years before not being a laughing stock.We're not sure if these are supposed to look more like bumble bees or cartoon prison uniforms...
The 2011 season ended in a Mile High heartbreak for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Tim Tebow and Demaryius Thomas connected on an 80-yard TD play on the first play from scrimmage in OT in a wild-card game to cut short a Steelers’ season far short of expectations.
