Pittsburgh Steelers will wear "Bumble Bee" 1934 throwback uniforms vs. the Bengals in Week 8

Thought the 1934 "Bumble Bee" throwbacks were gone? Think again...the team will be wearing them in Week 8 when they host the Bengals at Heinz Field.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have their own set of 'Killer B's". Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown, Le'Veon Bell and now Martavis Bryant. Pretty stellar B's if you ask me, but the Steelers will be bringing another group of 'Bees' back to the field in 2015 when they don their "Bumble Bee" 1934 throwbacks against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 8 of the 2015 NFL season.

The Steelers have a 3-1 record in the uniforms since adopting them as their new throwbacks in 2012 during the organization's 80th season of existence. That season they wore them twice, defeating the Washington Redskins and losing to the Baltimore Ravens. In 2013 the Steelers defeated the Detroit Lions wearing the "Bumble Bees", and in 2014 bested the Indianapolis Colts wearing the 1934 throwbacks.

Steelers fans seems split on the uniforms. Some say they are just the right kind of ugly to make them pretty, while others simply don't like the jailbreak pattern and the brown pants. Either way, the Steelers will be dusting off those '34 duds and donning them against the Bengals in the battle of ugly uniforms. With their record in those uniforms, the team should think about wearing them more often.
