There is no doubt that Chicago Bears fans are passionate about their team. "Da" Bears and all that. Naturally, when you have that level of enthusiasm, you are going to also find players who have been overrated.
Admit it, Bears fans: Some players we put on a pedestal even though their stats didn't match up to the hype. Or, perhaps, they were part of a great team and got more than their fair share of accolades.
But regardless of why, even a staunch, die-hard Bears supporter such as myself has a difficult time being totally objective when talking about my favorite Chicago sports teams.
Now, there is little doubt that when you talk about the Chicago Bears, you are talking about one of the most storied franchises in all of sports.
Sometimes players are known for having been on television a lot, or having been associated with winning teams. Alternatively, they were tough and played the game the way many fans like their Bears to play.
So, as a result, we tend to overvalue those players. Heck, even the so-called experts can be fooled. One of the players on this list is in the Hall of Fame.
Recognizing that, I am asking you to leave your fandom at the door, and enter my world of the most overrated Bears of all time. Be sure to let me know what you think.
