Before pro football became a social justice league with a bunch is sissies running around crying, it was a great sport, and Sayers was one of the best ever.
Sayers played for the Chicago Bears from 1965-1971 and was one of the hardest running backs to tackle. He was quick, agile and knew the game well.
I used to always watch Sayers and as a kid I knew he was going to be a legend in the game. I admired him for his ability, kindness and love of the game itself.
There isn't much for me to say here except that another nail has been put in my growing old coffin. Sayers passed away on Sept. 23rd, 2020 after battling dementia. He was 77.
