Steelers top 2015 uniform power rankings
The Steelers have a long line of tradition when it comes to winning and also looking good while doing it.
The team’s uniforms are consistently rated among the best in the league, so it should come as no surprise that they were ranked No. 1 on ESPN.com’s Uni-Watch power rankings.
The Steelers’ duds were rated fourth in 2014, but their bumblebee throwbacks actually helped boost them to the top spot this year.
Here’s the full lowdown from Uni-Watch’s Paul Lukas:
Aside from the switch from block numbers to italics (which many fans still gripe about, although it’s been nearly 20 years now and we should all just get over it already), the Steelers have stayed the course. They still have their logo on only one side of the helmet, they still don’t use helmet numbers during the preseason (you have to earn them by making the final roster cut), they still have that instantly recognizable sleeve striping (the Rolling Stones are even using it to promote their show at Heinz Field), and their gold pants still work equally well with either of their jerseys. And while some folks can’t stand the bumblebee throwbacks, that design is actually a big hit here at Uni Watch HQ and helps vault the Steelers into the top spot in this year’s Power Rankings. First rate.
Rounding out the top five were the Raiders, Packers, Bears and Chargers, in that order. Down at the bottom, the Cardinals and Bengals ranked just ahead of the last place Jaguars.
