Steelers unveil their throwbacks with a touchdown

My first glimpse of the Steelers’ throwback jerseys came as quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was taking the field.

First thought?  That’s a big-ass bumblebee.  (Feel free to make your own wisecracks below.)

The general consensus is that the look is not a good one for the Steelers, with even the most ardent black-and-yellowers not having anything good to say about the jerseys.

The only good news is that the horizontal stripes apparently are confusing the Redskins defense.  Pittsburgh took the opening kickoff 76 yards in 12 plays, scoring on fourth and goal from the doorstep of the end zone on a play-action pass from Big Ben Bumblebee to Leonard Pope.

    Attention Steelers: Immediately donate those uniforms to the Salvation Army and put the regular uniforms back on.

    “Nice” throwback, bumble bee uniforms. Matches the Steelers’ aging defense.

    Nice 4th down, goal line stand there, Squealers.

    I like that the Steelers have a work release program to help people assimilate back into society.

    If Plaxico still played for them, I bet he’d be familiar with this type of garb.

    I usually like the throw-backs, but these are most assuredly throw-aways. Don’t even wash them.

    Yuck!
