“If somebody asks me, ‘How do you think the Bears are going to do this year?’ If I say, ‘Oh, they are going to win 14 ballgames,’ they know the Bears can’t win 14 ballgames. Why should I lie to the people? Football people understand that.”
-Former Bears great Gale Sayers, clarifying remarks he made previously about the current Bears team.
His previous remarks:
“Cutler hasn’t done the job. Urlacher, I don’t know how good he’s going to be coming back. … They need a couple wide receivers, a couple defensive backs. … If Lovie doesn’t do it this year, I think he’s gone.”
