Krymson Tyde: Mike Ditka is the reason Walter Payton didn't score a Super Bowl touchdown, but William Perry did. For that transgression Ditka will burn for eternity in football hell.

fark Ditka.


At one point, Ditka was talked about as a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate from Illinois after Jack Ryan withdrew (Alan Keyes ended up running. It was hilarious).
The Democratic candidate, Barack Obama (perhaps you've heard of him), won handily. Someone asked him after the fact what he kind of chance he would have had against the coach. He said, "Anybody who would give the ball to Refrigerator Perry instead of Sweetness doesn't have very good judgment."

Gulper Eel: Anybody who thinks there's ever been a better offensive player than Walter Payton can ask themselves how Barry Sanders or Jim Brown would've done playing in an utter shiatburger of a Bears offense for 13 years


Are you kidding me? Maybe the first few years you could say that, but by the time the Bears were shuffling to the Super Bowl, that offensive line was pretty damn good. Hilgenberg was maybe the best center in the league (7x pro bowler), Covert was stellar at tackle (4x All-Pro), and Bortz and Thayer were road pavers. To not recognize that line is foolish. Don't forget, they helped propel Neal Anderson to the Pro Bowl not long after Sweetness retired.

They didn't win more because Jim McMahon is a shiatty QB. With that defense and Sweetness, anything less than three rings is pathetic.

IAmRight: Yanks_RSJ: They were an average (at best) team with a gimmick offense that allowed them to win or compete within a division in decline during the early-mid 90s. The Bears were floundering in the Dave Wannstedt era. The Vikings were average. The Packers were still in the midst of a 25-year rebuilding project. The Bucs were a laughingstock.

And yet if you hear people talking about Barry Sanders, you'd think he played with 10 tackling dummies on the field with him at all times, singlehandedly winning every game they ever won in that era despite having to face defenses with 30 people, 7 orcs, and 12 trolls with pitchforks on every single play.


I've only read one comment on this thread that sounds anything like that, and it wasn't about Barry Sanders.

Anybody who thinks there's ever been a better offensive player than Walter Payton can ask themselves how Barry Sanders or Jim Brown would've done playing in an utter shiatburger of a Bears offense for 13 years, or how many passes Jerry Rice would've caught with the likes of Bob Avellini, Steve Fuller and Rusty Lisch quarterbacking, or how many dazzling throws a Manning or Montana would've gotten off behind offensive lines that gave it up faster than a closeted evangelical at a rest stop glory hole.

IAmRight: And Moore and Perriman were pretty solid WRs. The revisionist history about those Lions is pretty impressive.

Yanks_RSJ: Mateorocks: What does one thing have to do with another? I'm lamenting about my fantasy football team today. Does that mean I don't care about drowning children?

Maybe less than my fantasy team, but still...I care.

Yeah, the headline makes no sense. People are allowed to go on with their lives without worrying that we'll be offended by it in New York.

How dare you eat a grilled cheese for lunch when millions on the east coast are still without power.

Gulper Eel: More like Sweetness couldn't carry an entire offense every farking year, especially after the Charles Martin cheapshot on McMahon (who was already having a lousy year).

Where the hell did that come from? And can you even name Sanders' QBs without looking? Or Jim Brown's? Do you think opposing defenses were keying on someone besides them?
