Screen-Shot-2014-04-16-at-10.29.18-AM

Just read a truly depressing piece in today’s New York Times by Walt Bogdanich.

Who is the greatest Chicago Bears player of all time? Jay Cutler? No, of course I do not have a straight face as I type that. In my opinion it’s Walter Payton, but you can make a case for Red Grange too. Or George Halas. Or Dick Butkus. Well, it’s an endless, timeless debate for …
