Bear Down Sunday #8

Today the Chicago Bears face the Arizona Cardinals. The Bears stand at 4-3, as do last years NFC champion Cardinals.
The best kicker for the Chicago Bears was Kevin Butler (although Robbie Gould is certainly on track to challenge Butler for that title). Butler was a rookie for the Super Bowl Bears and played 11 seasons with the team. He spent the last 2 seasons of his career with the Cardinals.
Butthead is the all-time leader in field goals, points and extra points for the Bears. He was also one of the most popular Bears and one of the last active members of the '85 Bears.
I met Butthead a few times. He was always very cool, sociable and funny.
