Other Former Bears Have Their Say

With all the ruckus regarding the comments between Brian Urlacher and Gale Sayers, we thought you guys would like to see some of the comments from other former players and folks tied to the organization who want to get in on the conversation.

WCG has total exclusivity in these comments--no other site is going to bring them to you. Now, keep in mind, I can't necessarily source any of these comments, but you're reading it on the internet, which means it's gotta be true, right?

Either way, this whole back and forth has got a lot of people's neck-fur standing up. Let's see what they have to say.

Mike Singletary:

I can't believe a kid would disrespect the history like that. I dunno if I can coach a man like that. I'll tell you what, if I'm head coach of the Bears, I'm showing him the moon in the locker room. That'll do it every time. Worked on Davis.

Cedric Benson:

Y'know, man, I agree with Brian. I'm better than Sayers. He just got off to a fast start back in his day. You look now, all the best guys take the first two or three years off, and then switch teams and get good. It's not 54's fault that Sayers played back with Fred Flinnstohn (sic).

Dan Hampton:

Well, uh, y'know, uh, I'mean, uh, it's like, it's like, it's like, uh, y'know you can't say that. I mean, uh, I mean if you're going to attack uh, a hall of famer, you can't blame him for, y'know, uh, uh, the performance of the team that's, y'lknow, uh,  around him. I mean, back in 85, uh, y'know, we were the greatest ever, and it's just, it's just, uh, uh, y'know, uh we'd never, uh say something like that.

Doug Buffone and Ed O'Bradovich (joint statement):


Ron Turner:

You know, Gale Sayers is lucky I wasn't in charge of the offense back then. The only guys making the Hall of Fame while I'm around are opposing teams' defenses. I am the king of helping out defenses.

Jonathan Quinn:

I am literally the least qualified person ever to speak about this subject. Many times, I didn't even know if I was on a football field or in a terrible dream world conceived by Freddy Krueger.

Jeff Joniak:


John Madden:

Well what you have here is, you got two guys sayin' some stuff, and the stuff they're sayin' is words comin' out of their mouths. You take those words and put them together and you get something they called sentences. Sometimes people say you can eat your words, but I don't put too much stock in that, because it doesn't taste very good.
