Mike Ditka: A Look Back On A Chicago Bears Legend

With the latest round of commercials of the Super-fans raving about "Dit-ka" and the seemingly never ending stream of advertisements with his face on it, it can be easy to forget how much of a dominant force Mike Ditka was when he was on the field: both revolutionizing playing the Tight End position and coaching one of the most well know Super Bowl teams in the history of the NFL, the 1985 Chicago Bears.

Ditka's triumphs have stood the test of time, and he will be recognized of that on Monday December 9th, when the Chicago Bears organization will retire #89 in honor of his lasting achievements in football.  

While no one post/article/interview can ever quite capture what Mike Ditka meant to the Chicago Bears and the NFL, I have taken an attempt to showcase some of what he has accomplished and how it is still competitive with modern day talents.

To a Chicago Bears legend from a life-long Chicago Bears fan: Thank you!
