After seeing the players selected for the all-time offense, defense and special teams as constructed in the Bears Centennial Scrapbook, fans gave their ideas for what they would change and who should be added. Here are some of the best and most popular responses.
I would change the defensive formation to a 3-4 so we could force [Brian] Urlacher into the mix.
Morning Sun, IA
Defense: Khalil Mack over any OLB, Change the entire defense to a 3-4, Eddie Jackson or Mike Brown should have been one of the safeties‚ Offense: 2nd RB could have been Forte, one of the guards should have been Kyle Long, Receivers: Alshon Jeffery, even Bmarsh for 1 out of the 2.
Alex Brown was amazing and should definitely be on the top 100 let alone this team.
Center should be Olin, Really should've done old and modern or first 50 years second fifty years.
Mineral Ridge, OH
Patrick Mannelly deserves a place on the special teams list for his work as a long snapper.
Gale Sayers has to be in the running back category.
Mike Singletary at MLB, Dick Butkus and Brian Urlacher as OLBs.
Urlacher was far more talented than all 3 of the current linebackers and should be include on an all time team . Butkus was great but could not cover today's Tight ends and receivers like Lach can.
Instead of a middle and two outside linebackers, just make it three linebackers and include Singletary and Urlacher with Butkus.
Central City, KY
Outside Linebacker, Otis Wilson.
Butler for kicker.
Chicago (retired to Sedona AZ)
Brian Urlacher on the LB Corps. Matt Forte instead of Nagurski. Brad Maynard as P, Ball State represent, Chirp Chirp!
Mike Brown instead of Petitbone.
