Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger plans to wear #Steelers gear for game vs. Jets
Steelers QB ben roethlisbergt to wear Steelers gear on the road to Jets game, but will be wearing #Steeler gear on game day article Ben Roettlisberger will wear Steelers’ gear for his first game against the Jets on Sunday night, but he’ll be wearing the team’s #SteelERotica for the road trip, the team announced on Tuesday.
Roethlisburg, who will wear #8 for the first time, will be the first Pittsburgh player to wear the team #SteelERSolio jerseys.
He’ll wear the #7 and #7, white, on the Steelers home jersey, as well as on the home and road jerseys.
It will be Roethlings first game wearing the #8.
The #Steeleryolio are a brand new look for the Steelers, a brand that is expected to make a big splash in the coming seasons.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said during his news conference that he has been thinking about using the jersey since the start of the season, and has been “worried about that look”.
“I was like, ‘well, we’re going to use this as a platform to get in some of our guys that have been working out,'” Tomlin told reporters.
“The last couple of weeks, it was really important for us to have guys on the team to wear this jersey.
I thought it would be fun to get that jersey out there for the team.”
Roethlisberger has worn #8 since his first start against the Cardinals in Week 8.
He wore it during the Steelers last home game of the 2015 season, a 41-27 loss to the Detroit Lions.
“He said, ‘I don’t care about that,'” Tomllin said.
“He was happy to wear that jersey and it was awesome.
I think that was just the most fun jersey to wear.
I’ve seen some jerseys that don’t have the #Steelershipolio on them, but I thought this was the best jersey for us.”
