Michael Jordan, Walter Payton, Ernie Banks, and Mike Ditka. They are the most iconic Chicago sports figures ever.
They asked Mike Ditka's wife what does she call him. Mike or coach? She said *** lmao
The game has been played with tight ends for the entirety of the modern era. JG is a tight end just like Kellen Wenslow, Shannon Sharp, Dallas Clark, Tony Gonzales, Gronk, Antonio Gates, Jason Whitten, Mike Ditka, Ozzie Newsome...and let's not forget the Tight End that actually helped us win a Super Bowl...Jeremy Shockey...if JG was as tough and as good a blocker as any of these guys, well. Shut up and make your 7-10 mil per year. Give me Ben Watson any day.

1970s[edit] Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders In the 1970s, the NFL underwent many changes as it absorbed the AFL and became a unified league, but the Cowboys also underwent many changes. Meredith and Perkins retired in 1969 and new players were joining the organization, like Cliff Harris, and Pro Football Hall of Famers Rayfield Wright, Mike Ditka, Herb Adderley and Roger Staubach. Led by quarterback Craig Morton, the Cowboys had a 10-4 season in 1970. A 38-0 shutout by the Cardinals was the low point of the year, but recovered to make it to the playoffs, where they defeated Detroit 5-0 in the lowest-scoring playoff game in NFL history, and San Francisco 17-10 in the NFC Championship game. They made it to their first Super Bowl, a mistake-filled Super Bowl V, where they lost 16-13 to the Baltimore Colts courtesy of a field goal by Colts' kicker Jim O'Brien with five seconds remaining in the contest. The Cowboys moved from the Cotton Bowl to Texas Stadium in week six of the 1971 season. Although the first game ...

Not sure how guys like Mike Ditka are considered "in Hollywood," but in addition to Woods are Adam Baldwin & Nick Searcy.
From my observations while in Illinois, the Holy Trinity is Mike Ditka, Derrick Rose, and Bratwursts.
If there is 1 thing Chicagoans love, it's Mike Ditka. If there r 2 things Chicagoans love, it's Ditka & D.Rose.
"I'm going to see Billy for a little bit." That sentence, uttered back in 2009, comes at the tail end of a conversation between football royalty. The words themselves are spoken by Super Bowl winning quarterback Tom Brady, who at that time was returning to action after a year lost to injury. He's talking with longtime head coach Bill Belichick, a likely Hall of Famer. Belichick owns a 224-163 career record during a 14-year stint with New England, including three Super Bowl Championships. Who is Billy? The 'Billy' in that sentence refers to Bill O'Brien, the current head coach of the Houston Texans. Back in 2009, 'Billy' was the quarterbacks coach for New England, his first year in that position. The conversation took place during a scene in the NFL Network 'A Football Life' documentary on Belichick. The series has profiled some of the most legendary figures and teams in football history. Jerry Rice, Mike Ditka, Barry Sanders and more have gone under the program's microscope, which gives unprecedented behi ...

The Beyond Black History Month Person of the day is Walter Jerry Payton[1] (July 25, 1954 – November 1, 1999) was an American football running back who played for the Chicago Bears of the National Football League (NFL) for thirteen seasons. Walter Payton was known around the NFL as "Sweetness". He is remembered as one of the most prolific running backs in the history of the NFL. Payton, a nine-time Pro Bowl selectee, once held the league's record for most career rushing yards, touchdowns, carries, yards from scrimmage, all-purpose yards, and many other categories. His eight career touchdown passes are an NFL record for non-quarterbacks. He was elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1993. Hall of Fame NFL player and coach Mike Ditka described Payton as the greatest football player he had ever seen—but even greater as a human being. Payton began his football career in Mississippi, and went on to have an outstanding collegiate football career at Jackson State University where he was an All-America ...

This week on "Inside The Bears," former Bears LB Otis Wilson judges a Mike Ditka lookalike contest at Double Door in Chicago. Watch the full segment and more ITB here:
OK!, now it's time to vent! For the past week I have been entangled in Trash Talk rooms dealing with my beloved Saints! I have a couple of things to say.First, the Defense showed up and played "lights out"! I personally feel, Now that we have Kenny Vaccaro, in his first year and after seeing the hits Rapheal Bush was laying on Percy Harvin today I do feel with Rob Ryan's Guidance we have our two safeties for a good minute. Keep Corey White, Keenan Lewis, and Keep Jabari Greer to play the nickle/slot receivers. Get another big body on the D-line and grab some U.F.A. Linebackers LEAVE CAM AND JUNIOR ALONE.WHILE I LOVE Sean Payton, I DONT CARE FOR HOW HE HAS TONED DOWN THAT AGGRESSIVE MENTALITY... THAT GOT US TO THE SUPERBOWL. (that killer instinct). Everybody's gonna say what they feel, but here's the thing! IT COULD BE WORSE! Don't complain about Drew Brees, we could still have Aaron Brooks! Don't complain about Sean Payton, we could still have Jim Haslett or Mike Ditka. Our running backs are still young t ...
"Success is about having, excellence is about being. Success is about having money and fame, but excellence is being the best you can be." Mike Ditka (born October 18, 1939) Ditka is considered one of football‘s most dynamic coaches. He coached the Chicago Bears for 11 years and New Orleans Saints for 3 years. Ditka and Tom Flores are the only two people to win Super Bowls as a player, an assistant coach and a head coach.
I'm not sure ill ever be able to trust a move the browns make unless Mike Ditka was pulling the strings.

The Gridiron Greats Hall of Fame Dinner will be May 16th at Ford Field.

Pepsi Grammy Half Time Show The Pepsi Grammy Half Time Show Commercial aired mid-awards on January 26th on CBS. Visions Lighting was the provider of all lighting, video and staging for the 2:36 minute ad that was a stand-out hit for the evening and gaining rave reviews. Visions was hired on by Production Company, Holmes Defender of the Faith, with the veteran McG at the lead as Director. Ramsey Nickell, Director of Photography for the commercial, thought Todd Roberts and Visions Lighting would be a great fit to design and provide the elements for the set up. The premise for the piece was for football to pay music back for entertaining their crowds at the Super Bowl each year by doing a half-time performance of their own at the Grammys which is the biggest music awards show of the year. Staring footballs greats such as Terry Bradshaw, Mike Ditka, Deion Sanders and Shannon Sharpe only added to the amazing experience for the Visions Team. When planning a project of this size and scale and in the time fra ...
 The eve before Super Bowl 2014 (which I have not-so-affectionately renamed the Pooper Bowl because the Broncos were so disappointing) I was watching the NFL Honors/Awards Show. One of the honors went to seven individuals who were named to The Football Hall of Fame. This is the pinnacle and conclusion of a football player’s career (other than winning a Super Bowl). It makes large grown men cry on the day they are inducted to the Hall of Fame. Men like Troy Aikman, Terry Bradshaw, Mike Ditka, Shannon Sharpe, Emmit Smith, Jerry Rice. It isn’t tears of pain that they can barely walk up to accept the honor, it is one of joy. Then they are shown their bronze bust enshrined in their likeness for football fans to see when they visit Canton, Ohio. As I was watching this, I have to admit I thought it was a little pathetic. Let’s contrast this with another place of distinction: heaven. If you ask passers-by, “Have you heard of Canton?” I bet you would get few responses that are, “Yes. That i ...

RAMBLAGE - There was a cat sitting next to me wangs joint watching the game. Nice enough dude, except for one thing; son's breath smelled like his lungs were made of farts. Didn't kill the appetite, though. I wolfed down wangs like they were coming out of a blender. OH yes, I was onna mission! ... Bruno Mars. Jeah. Son did his thing!

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning's conversion As this year's Super Bowl approaches, all eyes are on the weather. Hall of Fame player Mike Ditka calls the decision to play the game outside in New Jersey "stupid." Others think it's a "great idea." As of this morning, the high on Sunday is forecast to be 36 degrees, with possible snow showers. While some are watching conditions in the sky, this week we're thinking about the players on the ground. Each day we'll discover the Christian commitment of one of the Super Bowl athletes. Yesterday we learned the faith story of the Seattle Seahawks' quarterback, Russell Wilson; today we'll hear from Peyton Manning, quarterback of the Denver Broncos. This season, Manning scored more touchdowns and passed for more yards than any quarterback in history. He is famous for his charity work, very funny commercials, and numerous appearances on TV shows such as Saturday Night Live. What is not as well known is that he has been a committed Christian for more than two d ...

The famed 1985 Bears have been ranked as the top team in Super Bowl history by the New York Post. "Mike Ditka's bunch was so cocky, they made the 1986 Mets look humble," the Post's Brian Lewis wrote earlier this week. "They had the hubris to not only record but release the 'Super Bowl Shuffle' before the playoffs had even started. As Bear Bryant said, 'It ain't bragging if it's true,' and this team was The Truth. "They had Walter Payton in the backfield, plucky Jim McMahon under center and the arguably the NFL's greatest defense, led by Mike Singletary and coordinated by Buddy Ryan. They went 15-1 in the regular season, outscoring their foes 456 to 198, and just got better in the postseason. They drilled the Giants 21-0 and devastated the Patriots 46-10, with New England offensive lineman Ron Wooten admitting, "Before the end, it kind of felt like we were the team that the Globetrotters play all the time." The Post ranks the 1972 Dolphins, the only undefeated team in NFL history, second on its list of Sup ...

So many folk are talking about the Cowboys...negatively. Even some Cowboy fans. But this is the thing, I was a Cowboy when the following men played: Bob Hayes Craig Morton, Calvin Hill, Too Tall Jones, Duane Thomas, Walt Garrison, Roger Staubach, Mike Ditka, Dan Reeves (some of y'all only know of Dan Reeves and Mike Dikta through their coaching the Broncos and the Bears. Too bad...so sad.), Cliff Harris, Troy Aikman, Bill Bates, Jack Del Rio, Kevin Gogan, Michael Irvin, Jim Jeffcoat, Daryl Johnston, Michael Irvin, Jay Novacek, Emmitt Smith, etc. These men helped the Cowboys win 5 Super Bowls and 17 NFC East Championships beginning in 1970. It okay for OTHERS to hate because OTHERS can't replicate. Meaning they want to be like the Cowboys...but there's only one America's Team. From the aforementioned list, count the number of Hall of Famers. I'm not a "Jump on the Bandwagon" change my jersey every Monday morning fan. I supported the Cowboys at 1-15, and I'm going to support them now. Regardless of my feeli ...

Mike Ditka talks about how his minor heart attack in 1988 left him vulnerable
Given that the division crown once was deemed wholly out of reach by fans, the Packers gladly would accept it. It would enable McCarthy's Packers to join Mike Holmgren's Packers and Mike Sherman's Packers as the only teams since the Vikings of Bud Grant and the Bears of Mike Ditka to win three divisions in a row. The Packers would really have a divisional dynasty going if they had overcome their one-game deficits to Chicago in 2010 and Minnesota in 2009. "Green Bay is still the team until someone knocks them off," one scout said. "Good coach, good quarterback."
When a 49-year-old Mike Ditka, the man of iron and king of Chicago, suffered a minor heart attack after a daily workout
For what it's worth, I remember rooting for the Falcons to knock off the Cowboys in the final game of the 1990 season. As there was no Sunday Ticket TV plan and the networks were less flexible with their schedules at the time, we were left to listen to the Falcons horrendous broadcast of the game which WWL radio patched through for the desperate fans. Falcons did their job that day beating Babe Laufenberg and the 'boys. On Monday night, the Saints beat the Rams on a Morten Andersen field goal clinching the newly added third Wild Card spot with an 8-8 record which set up a date with Mike Ditka's Bears. So in conclusion, I have no problem rooting for the Falcons this Sunday.
C'mon BEARS, we need you now! Do it for Mike Ditka and for the DALLAS COWBOY fans!

Bear vs Eagle. Game has huge playoff implications for both teams this late in season. The 1988 Fog Bowl may be the most memorable battle between these two teams. Playoff game. Mike Ditka was coaching against ex-Bears D Coordinator Buddy Ryan. Philly QB Randall Cunningham was a threat to run or pass and difficult to defend. It may be most interesting playoff game that nobody--even the players-saw.

He laughed and said "Okay...if you can name the player to Ditka's right, you can buy whatever you want!" I stopped for a second, gave him a confused look (I don't know anything about football...) and said, "well...um...that's Jim McMahon...BAM!" and proceeded to do the Superbowl Shuffle!

Last night after his jersey was retired Mike Ditka was talking in the press conference and talked about signing his first contract for $12,000. I know that times are different and the cost of living has changed but where has the passion to play the game went? Where are the guys that just have the heart to play for the sake of just being blessed enough to play the game they love. Not just playing because they make millions of dollars a year and guys that sit out because they are pouting about not getting a huge contract. Da Coach is a stand up guy through and through.
Moving kinda slow today, me & my little lady stayed up & watched the Bears knick butt on Dallas. Nice tribute to The Coach, Mike Ditka cool dude he's always out & about Chicago & always stops to sign autographs, gotta love Chicago, what a game, what a city, hands down greatest fans going!

Congratulations to the Chicago Bears for not only destroying the Dallas Cowboys (45-28) at Soldier Field but the star backup quarterback Josh McCown’s three of the five touchdowns during the first half sealed the deal just before Hall of Famer Mike Ditka’s No 89 jersey was retired while Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery the first Chicago Bears receiving duo to each gain 1,000 yards in a season since 1995. Go Bears
Such a beautiful thing. I love you Mike Ditka! That's a true gentleman there!
Most of the reports I've seen on last night's game seem to emphasize another December collapse of the Cowboys, though, to be fair, some have dealt with the resurgence of the Bears offense. To be fair, the defense did give up a lot of rushing yardage again, but, they stopped the scoring drives early and built up a good lead. McCown has grown into the job as quarterback and now has two very good options at wide receiver, and an outstanding running and catching running back in Matt Forte. I do think the team was inspired not only by the excitement of having Iron Mike Ditka's number retired at halftime, but by the spotlight of Monday Night Football. It is still a tough row to how to make the playoffs, but for one night, they shone in the national spotlight and made the plays when they counted. Finally, thanks Coach Ditka, for your passion and commitment, as a player and a coach. I don't know about the rest of my fellow Bears fans, but I found his simple, emotional speech moving.
Thanks for joining us to speak on Mike Ditka and your dad, Walter Payton, Jarrett!

How about them BEARS last night, winning over the Cowboys 45-28, in FRIGID degree temperatures. My hats off to those Bear fans that endured that game with them. I could never have been there sitting in those stands, no way!! Mike Ditka at half time looked great as they retired his number 89. But I did notice that he left his speech short and walked rather briskly away. Cold is not good for us older folks as was duly noted. Congratulations Bears and McEwen did an awesome job for us as did Marshall. WOO-HOO, HOW ABOUT THEM BEARS and "Da Coach". God bless them.
OFF THE TOP OF MY BALD HEAD loved it when Peyton Manning told critics about his poor performance in cold weather to "take it and show it where the sun don't shine after another brilliant Sunday. watching NFL in snow makes me want even to pray for blizzard at Meadowlands for the farce called SB 2014--should change the name to the FROZEN BOWL. Thbe NFL could care less about fans or the quality of play--the $$ are in the bank for the telecast and game related sponsorships. f you think things are bad here in Mc Nair land then check out the Redskins where Mike Shanihan and Dan Snyder make the Dems and Republicans look like they are fraternity brothers. Shanny will get another head gig--BUT not here. Mike Ditka long overdue retirement sweater was a trip down memory lane.

Incase you missed it last night. Here is recap of the great Mike Ditkas career

On Mike and Mike yesterday, Greenberg was suggesting that if Jerry West was the NBA silhouette and if the NFL ever considered a logo like that, it should be Mike Ditka with his mustache, staring and chewing gum. Ditka said, "Well, Mike, I'm glad you brought up Jerry West. I covered him in college, too, in basketball. Yeah, for about two minutes. He had about eight points, I had five fouls. And they asked him after the game - he said 'I'm glad he fouled out. I thought I was gonna get killed'."
What can be said about those crazy Bears. Let's make the last 3 games Mike Ditka Day!
Mike Ditka, who won a Super Bowl as a tight end for George Halas in 1963 and coached the Chicago Bears to a much more famous one in 1985, finally got his jersey retired Monday night in a halftime ceremony.
One great big cheer for the Bears, their wonderful fans, and Mike Ditka night for propelling the Eagles into first place. Even if they lose their last 3 games and fall out of the playoffs, it has been a successful season. But I think their magical year is only beginning.
"Effort without talent is a depressing situation... but talent without effort is a tragedy..." -Mike Ditka

Watching Mike Ditka during the Bears game last night, my daughter Abby says, "Hey, I know that guy. He is famous." Beaming with pride at her football knowledge, I tell her that "He sure is." She then replies, "He is the guy in the Binny Beverage Depot commercials." Sigh.
Mike Ditka Seemingly the essence of Chicago Football, “Da Coach” himself watched his number 89 be immortalized at Soldiers Field. Retired to the facade with other greats such as Butkis and Payton, Ditka’s 89 will never be worn again in Chicago. The hall of fame player and coach revolutionized the tight end position and lead the Bears to their only Superbowl victory. There is little doubt that his football story deserves the attention it got, but what about off the field? From the SNL skits to his almost endless endorsements, he has kept his face in ours, long after his days on the sidelines. Never without a comment or opinion, his character is almost as famous as his career. However (like you didn’t know this was coming), at what point does a his character become a caricature of itself? Don’t get me wrong, I love what he did for the Bears, but time has taken it’s toll on him and those memories. To be honest, he’s a shell of his former self. His broadcasting is a stumbling mix of wrong names ...
The Football Gods have indeed looked down and smiled upon me this week. First, KC gets a big win and my coach is happy again. Then, my Eagles, blinded by snow, take a big win at home! Saints crush Carolina, and if that's not enough, allow me to tip my hat to Da Bears and congratulate Mike Ditka. Not only did you honor a great man, but you destroyed the cowboys and allowed my Eagles to be AT THE TOP OF THE DIVISION. I haven't seen that in awhile. FLY EAGLES, FLY!!! Also, I won fantasy.
