    Well, WR's usually are Divas. It could just be that.

    I agree with that. Hopefully that's all it is. A "diva thing" and not anything more than that.

    I think it's terrific that a player like BM uses the stage given to him for something good. He has obviously had a great realization in his life, and made a very positive change of direction. It's much better than a player like Aldon Smith, who shoots up his own party with assault rifles, and then crashes his car into a tree because he's so plastered at 7am. Then bails out and goes to practice like nothing happened. So many professional athletes get the free pass, and do absolutely NOTHING positive with their time in the spotlight. I applaud people like BM and even Cutler and Earl Bennett for spending lots of their own time and resources to help out others with similar problems to their own. Good for them, and good for those that they help. I'm happy to have people like that on the Bears.

    Marshall can do all of that without doing the "green shoe thing" when the entire NFL is doing a league-wide sponsored event for cancer awareness. Many players (a large percentage of NFL players) sponsor good causes. They do it the right way though. He's just being a diva here. Wear the NFL approved uniform. And by all means, do like other players & sponsor good causes. But do it within the rules of the NFL. Don't be a bone head.

    JABF, I both agree and disagree. I am kinda concerned with some of Marshall's behavior of late as well, but I WOULDN'T pull a Ditka with him over the green shoes. Marshall is the type of guy whom you need to handle with kid gloves. As long as he isn't going COMPLETELY OVERBOARD, let him do his thing. If we lose him completely, then we are in deep doo-doo. Gotta pick your battles, man.

    I agree. I'm just saying what I'd do (that's why I'd make a poor coach). Trestman will have more finesse. My guess is that Trestman and Cutler are working behind the scenes to get this guy settled down a bit. He can't have the ball like last season. Too many ints that way. We have an absolute stud in Jeffery, so it's not like we HAVE to force balls into double and triple coverage.

    And yes, I guess Trestman needs to let the guy wear, or not wear, what ever he likes on game day. Heck, let him go barefoot with painted toe nails. As you say (and I agree) he's not a very steady guy emotionally, and needs to be handled with "kid gloves" or he goes off the deep end mentally. That's his history anyway.

    Well said, JABF. I agree with your post 100%. I have no doubt that both Cutler and Trestman are doing everything they can to make sure Marshall doesn't implode right now. That is the LAST thing we need.
