Default Would you play sleeveless in 3F?

Pernell McPhee still wont wear long sleeves.

As a D-lineman, as a front-seven guy, as a guy who plays defense, I think its a sign of weakness, he said.

The outside linebacker told his fellow defenders as much that its a long-held Bears tradition to go bare-armed in cold weather, no matter what. Sunday qualifies as just that: with the high expected to be 3 degrees, the Packers rivalry game will rival the coldest Bears home games ever.

I have more brains than ego.
failure to protect yourself against the elements makes you stooped, not tough.

If I were getting a lot of playing time. Sure. The body will warm up. If I'm not getting much playing time, or none at all, hell naw. If I'm going sleeveless, I'm never coming off the field.

Yeah, keep your hands and feet warm and you won't notice your arms and legs so much, especially pushing yourself as hard as these guys do.

Yeah, pretty stupid not to put on a compression shirt in that temperature.

I would play near sleeve less because it's tactical.

I'm assuming here that you're referring to D-linemen not wanting to give O-linemen anything to grab. That's where compression shirts are useful.

Fox went into greater detail, "I told Peyton and the guys, 'There is no way I am calling a timeout.' No, no way Jose. Not-ah-ah."

Fox took a deep breath, rolled his eyes, explaining the obvious, "I said something like you guys will freeze to death out there, just get your butts back by the heaters before the OT coin toss, warm up. I mean, if these guys drop dead out there, it wouldn't matter if we won or lost...we wouldn't be able to play the next week!"

Fox winked to the media then whisked himself away, proceeding to "towel whip" his freshly showered starting left tackle before heading to the team cafeteria for chicken parm Friday.

Well, being on the Bear D, he'll be on the field a lot. So he'll be good and warm. Wouldnt recommend it if he was playing on the Bear O.
