The Bears started preparations for the Detriot Lions on Wednesday and like the Seahawks game , it seems like fashion is coming to the forefront. As Brad Biggs notes in his blog, a few of the Bears will be sporting pink in support of the NFL’s “A Crucial Catch: Annual Screening Saves Lives” breast cancer awareness campaign.
All Greg Olsen had to do was ask Jay Cutler to come in style for Sunday’s game against the Lions, and the quarterback agreed.
Olsen’s mother Sue Olsen was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001 and is a survivor.
“I know it means a lot to Greg with his mom,” Cutler said. “So he asked me probably a month ago if I’d wear the pink cleats. It should be interesting.”
Meanwhile, NFL Defensive Player of the Week Lance Briggs sat out practice today with a bum toe. Assuming he plays on Sunday, Briggs’ captains ‘C’ will be pink, along with pink wristbands, towels, etc.
What is this, Project Runway or the NFL? I’m all about support for breast cancer awareness, but do we really have to be splashing the pink all over the place? Why not go all the way with pink jerseys? If the Seahawks could pull off those green monstrosities, the Bears could pull off pink jerseys, don’t ya think?
