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.
