    Just saw this on ESPN.

    I love it. Its unique for a football jersey and it looks like a bad ass prison uniform.

    The block letters are nice too. Good to see Nike is trying new things. They kind of had their hands tied to tradition when unveiling new uniforms a few weeks ago, but the alternates is where Nike's design will really shine.

    saw these on PFT last night. Even Steelers fans can't defend them. What a horrible decision.

    Wait, it's just an "alternate" uni right?

    Or are they wearing that all season?

    Absolutely putrid....

    I have to imagine that one person came up with the concept.

    Another person actually designed it.

    And at least one other person gave the okay.


    How could multiple people be SOOOO wrong? (and yes I realize this is the perfect setup for a political joke)

    It's actually inspired by the Steelers 1934 Jersey.

    Even worse than the uniforms with the light bulb helmets.

    I'm not sure about everyone else, but this is what immediately came to mind when I saw the strip.

    I don't really mind them but then again I have a knack for liking the "ugly" jerseys. For example, I really like the Seahawks neon green alternates that were put to rest quickly.

    Things like that were not uncommon in the twenties and thirties. I would bet that the new version is somewhat embellished a bit from the original.
