Bear Down Sunday #9

The Chicago Bears are 5-3 as they face the undefeated Tennessee Titans. The Titans are coached by Jeff Fisher, a former member of the Bears. Fisher has spent more time as coach of his team than any other current coach. When he started coaching them, they were the Houston Oilers.
Today's celeb guest of honor is Jimbo Covert, a long-time member of the Bears and teammate of Fisher. Covert epitomized those Bears' teams. He was a rock at tackle.
I met Covert at sports talk Mike North's Bowl-A-Thon. I really miss that event.
Jimbo Covert and me in Arlington Heights, IL-mid-1990's.

Wow. Jimbo looked great, although it was probably only a few years after he retired.
