ditka-300x196

Chicago and NFL icon Mike Ditka has long been a product pitchman first and everything else second. The 1985 Chicago Bears season was 31 years ago; his shtick on ESPN (and every other outlet giving him a platform) has been a de facto cartoon for a very long time already.

blog-logo-icon3

For the vast majority of NFL teams, “the greatest quarterback in franchise history” played sometime within the last 30 years.
