You don't go into your division rival's stadium wearing pink. One uniform decision by Harbaugh that I can actually support.

Don't worry, the Ravens will probably wear pink at some point this month.

Just not THAT game.

Well it's an option to wear the pink. Just because a player/team wasn't wearing or wont wear pink in oct, dont mean they do not support the cause.

Some of them had pink towels I believe, or at least on the bench they did. Someone threw one at Willis' head after his touchdown.

It was strategic IMO. Joe gets flustered at times especially with the pressure Pitt brings and he may just key in on jersey colors to find his man ( or not .lol). It's basically the same reason as to why teams dont all have the same colors.

Yeah, the pink was optional. That said, they will sport pink the next game, and probably for the rest of the month. It's not a slight to the cause, it was just something that each player chose not to do. It's not a team decision, it's an individual player decision.

Pink and Black that is going to be awful and great all rolled into one. Mother and mother in-law both survivors so I cant support teams doing this anymore then I already do. But I also understand not wearing it at Pitt, we have enough to deal with trying to get over the Pittsburgh hump.

We went the whole month of October wearing pink last year without a win. With loses at New England, Home against Cincy, and at Minnesota. Maybe coach has a little bit of superstition going on. Just saying.

Color schemes don't win or lose games, players do.

October is breast cancer awareness month. So the pink thing goes on all month. I'm sure Harbs had some idea in his head that the pink could signal out his defensive players a lot quicker.

But I'm also sure that we will be sporting it this month. After Harbs sees that everbody in the league pretty much wore pink, he'll cave as well.

I don't mean to totally go off topic but how many women really haven't hurt of breast cancer by now? Isn't it time to start awareness for another kind of cancer?

Wow. You must be really confused.

That's not what they mean by 'awareness'. It's an effort to drum up support and funds for fighting the disease, even if only for a month. Same reason people wear the yellow "Livestrong" bracelets for cancer. Same reason people put yellow ribbons around trees for soldiers at war.
