In honor of MNF and the Bears Cowboys NFC throwdown tonight my first Man Crush Monday is dedicated to the one and only Brandon Marshall. I don’t know if it’s his great pearly white smile, his ability to make amazing catches on the field, his size and strength to make dirty blocks or just his charisma, but I have crushed on BMarsh since he joined the Bears two seasons ago.
The Bears’ wide receiver is a reformed NFL bad-boy who has really cleaned up his image. You can find him posting pictures on Instagram of his favorite books, advocating for Mental Health Awareness (he suffers from borderline personality disorder), strutting around in adorable bow-ties and showing fellow NFLers how to truly rock the three piece suit.
Did I mention I really love the bow-ties?
BMarsh’s bromance with Jay Cutty is precious. Cutler threw Marshall his first touchdown pass (they were both then Denver Broncos) in December of 2006. Marshall would later be traded to the Dolphins in 2010. The fearsome duo were reunited when Marshall was traded to the Bears in March of 2012 and they have been going strong ever since.
Sorry to ruin the party single ladies, but Marshall is a married man. Michi Nogami-Campbell and Marshall tied the knot in April of 2010. She is beautiful and has her own sassy reputation to uphold. Just google it.

What’s that you hear? Oh that was a collective sigh of relief coming from Chicago Bears fans. Finally the Bears have acquired a top NFL wide receiver, and we caught ourselves a big fish. Three-time Pro Bowler Brandon Marshall is taking his talents from South Beach to Chicago’s South Loop. Giddy up!
The Bears traded Marshall from the Miami Dolphins Tuesday for their third-round draft pick in 2012 and 2013. Last season, Marshall caught 81 passes for 1,214 yards and six touchdowns -free agency was on Chicago’s side.
In his first big move as the Bears new general manager, Phil Emery reunited Jay Cutler with one of his go-to men from his Denver days. For the entire three years Cutler has spent in Chicago, he’s been seeking a big target with reliable hands and next season he will have his chance to show us what that arm can really do. Marshall will wear No. 15 with the Bears, the same number he donned in Denver.
The 6-4 Marshall instantly gives the Bears’ offense, running under first-year coordinator Mike Tice, a big-time playmaker.
“I think he’s going to be great for Jay and our offense,” linebacker Brian Urlacher told the Chicago Tribune. “It’s cool that he and Jay played together in Denver so there is some familiarity.”
I can’t wait to see this offensive beast in a Bears uniform. Here are some highlights, Bear down!
