Greatest Chicago Bears Player of All Time


The Top TenXW

1Walter Payton

He was without doubt the greatest all-around NFL running back of all time. No single player could run, block, receive, or pass as well. Has anyone ever jumped over the line at the goal line like he could?

I am a huge Chicago bears fan! One of my favorite athletes of all time, no one in NFL history will be as great as Walter Payton! Sweetness!

Not only the greatest Bear, but the greatest player to have played the game!

He is the best player time no question

2Brian Urlacher

He has more tackles than you can count, go's up for the ball like a cornerback, and he does every thing he can to help the team - belac2006

Very underrated in nfl history

Brian Urlacher's freakish sideline-to-sideline speed, his height, his size, and his football IQ were so great - he made Hunter Hillenmeyer look good! I didn't see Dick Butkus play, but I did see Singletary. Don't kid yourselves - if you were an NFL General Manager, you'd take Urlacher before Singletary. Brian Urlacher was a special player.

3Gale SayersGale Eugene Sayers, also known as "The Kansas Comet", is a former American college and professional football player who was a running back in the National Football League for seven seasons during the 1960s and early 1970s.

He was so unbeliveably ahead of his time that it was almost a comedy act watching defenders try to stop him. - aman28

*22 touchdowns as a rookie.
*Two NFL rushing titles in a six-year injury plagued career.

4Dick Butkus

*Killed a player with a single tackle.
*7-time all-pro player.
*Forced 27 in his 8 year career.

dick butkus is football. he is rough and tough. high motor. plays 100 percent all the time.

5Mike Singletary
6Devin Hester

He's only been in the league 2 years and he's already second on all the time returns for touchdowns list. He could also become a dangerous receiver. Look out Canton. - crazyeyes56

A punt and kick returners job is so important. Even though they don't always have to score, they can set up key drives.

7Lance briggs
8Mike Ditka

He should at least be above urlacher! He was a genius and I'm sure people don't know urlacher as much as Ditka.

Changed the Tight End position. - waterboy51

9Richard Dent

Come on guys, Dent deserves to be higher! He is one of the best Bears players of all time and MVP when the Bears won the super bowl.

Dent was the MVP when the bears won the Super Bowl! Without a doubt one of the greatest players in Chicago Bears history!
