PITTSBURGH, Oct. 29 (UPI) -- The throwback "bumblebee" jerseys worn by the Pittsburgh Steelers in their most recent game got mixed reactions from the players.
Defensive back Ike Taylor said he liked the uniforms the players wore in their 27-12 win Sunday over the Washington Redskins, NFL.com reported Monday.
"I like them. I like the throwback, man. That bumblebee, jailhouse look from back in the day," Taylor told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "I'll try to put 'swag' and 'swurve' in the same word. How about 'swavvin'?"
Taylor conceded the horizontal stripes of the uniforms weren't exactly flattering on some of the team's larger players.
"I don't like to call them fat but on the big, healthy guys, it's not going to look too good," Taylor said.
Some teammates agreed.
"Sideways stripes don't do me no good," 325-pound nose tackle Casey Hampton said. "Honestly, any uniform does me bad, so it can't really get any worse than it already is."
