RIP Gale Sayers
My favorite RB of all time, even if he did end up at SIU.

Sad to hear. One of the all-time greats and a nice man. Along with Sweetness, he was the Bears' Mr. Cub.

I can only remember Sayers as an injured player who could never suit up, but films of him during his Bears heyday are absolutely astonishing. Six TDs in the mud against the 49ers. Amazing.

I can still hear Jack Brickhouse's voice saying "galloping Gale carries the mail". Geez I am old!

The Bears were really blessed to have Gale Sayers and Walter Payton. Now, if only they added Garrett Wolfe to the pack..... 03-weeping
