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.
