Steelers will wear 'bumblebee' throwbacks vs. Colts in Week 8

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

The Steelers will once again be donning the throwback 'bumblebee' uniforms in the upcoming 2014 season.

Watch out for those killer bees.

Like them or not, the Pittsburgh Steelers will once again be donning the much maligned 'bumble bee' uniforms when the Indianapolis Colts come to town on October 26th, as reported by Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Since the Steelers began wearing throw back uniforms in honor of their 75th season in existence, fans have been very hot and cold with their favor of the team's overall selection of the uniforms.

First, the gold helmets, black jerseys and white pants were considered a solid throwback that didn't buck the general trend of throwbacks in the NFL. A respectable choice by the organization.

Then the Steelers unveiled the 1934 throwback uniforms appropriately dubbed by fans as the 'bumblebee' uniforms. Others say they looked like prison jump suits, but whatever you might call the new threads, the uniforms caught local and national attention for their unique and down right strange selection of jersey.

Not only will the team be wearing these jerseys again when Andrew Luck and company come to Heinz Field, but the Steelers won't be able to go to another throwback uniform until 2016. A lot of fans want the team to simply go back to the 'block' numbers with their next selection, and as Mark Kaboly points out, there aren't many options remaining for a team that has kept the general theme of their uniforms in tact for several decades.
