    Block numbers and letters. The sleeves look different and longer to me.

    Kind of shameless to sell Shazier jerseys. Hope those purchases go toward a charity or something.

    Too bad they wont go back to block numbers they were awesome, along with taking that logo off the Jersey, its unnecessary.

    I honestly wouldn't mind if they phase out the current uniforms for those. Very sharp.

    I was never fond of the change in the first place, though it wasn't enough of a step backwards to really complain loudly about. There's just something about blocky numbers that shouts football to me.

    It’s interesting how the helmet numbers were always rounded, though. I found that weird when I used to watch as a kid and thought making them match was a good move.

    Yes please. I never understood why they changed the block #'s to the current ones. They werent that great looking.

    Plus the extra logo on the Jersey was just unnecessary. Keep it simple.

    I’m kind of disappointed with this jersey since it is so similar to our current jerseys.

    Curious if we'll ever see the return of the white pants:

    Assuming that's the Kendricks thing but did the Steelers ever really express serious interest?

    Nope. The Stillers think they are totally fine at ILB apparently.

    No real point in adding another body. There aren't any answers available outside of making a trade.

    Either Keith Butler is going to do something revolutionary on defense that makes the ILB's obsolete, or there will not be enough words to describe how STUPID the Steelers would look for ignoring the position this offseason despite it being their biggest need.

    No comments in here about Shazier’s press conference yesterday and his “vowing to return to football”? He was still limping heavily with a cane...does not seem likely at all and is not something I would want to watch :/

    I mean I get what you’re saying. The potential dangers of him returning are obvious. I doubt he ever gets back to 100% though. But the thing is - say he does, that would be an incredible thing to happen. If he plays football again, it means he’s made a full recovery. Something that wasn’t thought to be possible since that night in December.

    Honestly I still think we are gonna get ran on a bit.

    But besides the inside LBers I think our Dlinemen need to do better clogging the run lanes. They are great at pass rushing, and arent SUPER bad at run but i do see them getting pushed to the side or ate up a decent amount of times on inside run plays.

    Also honestly i think the bigger problem in that game against the Jaguars was letting Bortles look like Brady and having them convert so many 3rd down passes. Hopefully the improved safety position will help.

    Well Mike Mitchell did taunt the Jaguars before the game telling them all they'd remember who he is.....

    Eh...so they’ll go 4-0 without him. No big deal.

    Add: the only somewhat intriguing angle there is if he got caught on a system suggested by Brady’s trainer. I believe Edelman has been working out with Guerrero recently as well.
