    Thumbs down "Let's go Gears!"

    Ok, does anyone else hate that line when marcus says "let's get down there gears!"

    It just sounds....really dumb...refearing to the soldiers as actual "gears"....huh.

    That's what they are. Soldiers in the COG military are called Gears...

    It's just like saying, "Get down there, Marines!"

    They call them Gears becuase a gear is something that needs other gears to keep the war machine going. In a sense, each and every COG is apart of the war machine.

    No one really knows why they are called Gears offcially, but I think its a train of thought each and every soldier is told in combat. Something along the lines of "Each and everyone of you is a gear working together to keep this machine turning in the tide of war"

    So IF you fail to do your job, it can prevent the other "gear" to do his duty, which can effect the whole "machine". Sort of like Navy Seal training, they do certain routines that make you feel like IF you quit, your team will have to try even harder. So mentally each soldier in the COG army is trained to try no matter what happens.

    Plus, their symbol is shaped like a Cog, which is part of a gear system

    Exactly that was my theory to, but i had more of a symbolistic meaning than a team one.
