Despite the outcome of their game against the Washington Redskins, the Pittsburgh Steelers were hardly dressed for success in Week 8. Sporting throwback jerseys modeled after the black-and-yellow striped unis worn by the 1934 squad, the Steelers were being mocked on Twitter even as they made a mockery of the Redskins.

I know the Redskins' defense probably doesn't want to touch the Steelers' uniforms, but they're going to have to.


Not Aaron Rodgers
The alternate uniforms make them look like bumblebees that just escaped from prison.

"I like them. I like the throwback, man," Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "That bumblebee, jailhouse look from back in the day."
