Players excited to wear jerseys

Posted by Teresa Varley on October 25, 2012 – 9:45 pm

Steelers’ players are looking forward to wearing the team’s 1934 Throwback Jersey this week against the Washington Redskins.

Here is what some of them had to say about it on Thursday:

Wide Receiver Antonio Brown
“I am excited about wearing them. It brings back the history and tradition. I am looking forward to wearing them. It’s all about the history of our organization and you have to enjoy it.”

Linebacker Larry Foote
“It’s exciting to put something different on. It’s cool for Pittsburgh. A lot of people like these jerseys. It’s good for the fans. My wife likes them. I am more excited about wearing the socks.”

Center Maurkice Pouncey
“I am excited about it. I don’t have the big belly like most of the linemen so I think they are more challenged than I am.”

Defensive End Brett Keisel
“I think the throwbacks are sweet. They are just like the ones in 1934. It’s a little bit of history. It’s always fun to go back in time. It’s always exciting when everyone comes out on the field in them ready to go.”

Safety Ryan Clark
“I think it will be a cool deal because there has been so much talk about it. It will be good to get them out there on the field. When you see 45 guys out there wearing them on the field it will be good.”

Running Back Jonathan Dwyer
It’s going to be interesting. I’m excited to see us playing in them and what everybody else’s reaction is going to be.”

    I Love the Steelers no matter what they wear. Been a fan since 78. Good luck Sun against skins.

    As long as Keisel has that beard it doesn’t matter what our uniforms look like. The beard will steal the show. Go Steelers!

    Well, they do look vintage. And I predict they will distract the Redskins. Lots of people will say they look like convicts, or Killer Bees. But as long as our athletes feel good, they will play well. It’s who’s inside the jerseym not what’s on the outside. Good luck, RGIII, but it looks like a Steeler’s Victory!

    Sorry guys, you look like killer bees, not Steelers.
    Lose the throwback uniforms.
