When you think of Chicago Bears from the past decade, whom do you think of? Brian Urlacher, Rex Grossman, Lovie Smith, Dick Jauran, David Terrell? I know, I know, those last couple were low blows, but when you think Chicago Bears, you will have to remember Mike Brown.
Mike Brown was one of those special players who made you smile, win or lose, because of the effort and the heart he would bring on every play, on every series, in every game of every week.
He was a player who LOVED the team he played for. If Mike Brown was a fan, he would be considered a die-hard.
Mike Brown's career with the Bears officially ended last month with the announcement he would not be brought back. It is a pity and a shame that his tenure in the NFL will be remembered more for his injuries than his electric play on the field and his overall leadership in the locker room.
