Just a few short weeks ago it was announced the Pittsburgh Steelers won't be wearing their Nike 'Color Rush' uniforms on Thursday Night Football, like the rest of the NFL in 2016. Instead of wearing their unique monochromatic uniforms on Thanksgiving night when they travel to play the Indianapolis Colts, the team will wear them at Heinz Field on Christmas Day when the Baltimore Ravens come to town.
When Team President Art Rooney II released this news he said the actual uniforms themselves would be revealed "in a couple weeks". At halftime of the Steelers and Detroit Lions game Rooney told Bob Pompeani exactly what these uniforms will look like in 2016.
"It will be something different," said Rooney. "The first time we have worn black pants. It will be an all black uniform with gold numbers. I think our fans will enjoy it. It's something different. It's going to be interesting to see how it goes."
For those who don't know what the 'Color Rush' uniforms look like, they are uniforms focused on one color. Therefore, the Steelers will don black socks, black pants, a black jersey with gold numbers and the traditional black helmet.
Nike will release the actual uniform as the game approaches, but the thought of these all black uniforms sound pretty awesome.
