After seeing the full list of the best Bears players of the last 100 years according to the Chicago Bears Centennial Scrapbook, fans give their takes on how they would rank the all-time greats.
Move Singletary ahead of Urlacher, and both ahead of Bill George. Sayers would be ahead of Nagurski.
Urlacher and Hampton have to be in top 10. Hampton for sure.
Brian Piccolo deserves at least an honorable mention. I love Khalil Mack but does he deserve to be included after one year of service? You could easily sub Piccolo in for him in my opinion.
I would put "Peanut" Tillman just above Eddie Sprinkle. The "Peanut" punch (which is still legal) over the Sprinkle "Clothesline" which is not.
Except for players who are ineligible to make the HOF due to recent play, it makes sense to make the top of the list exclusively HOF members of the team.
Hester should be higher. He was/is the GOAT at returner.
Singletary should be ahead of Urlacher; Lance Briggs should be higher.
Mack on the list at all after one year ahead of Kevin Butler?

Red Grange is too low - he was so important to the birth of the Bears and the NFL.
Dent way too high; Ditka way too high; Hester probably too high; where is William Perry? Willie Gault does not belong on the list; Cutler probably too low; Alshon Jeffery does not belong on this list; where is Ted Washington?
I realize Alan Page only played 3 or 4 years with the Bears, but he was very productive during those years. I think Top 75 anyway.
Urlacher and Singletary moving up, George and Fortmann moving down.
Include Leslie Frazier.
Gale sayers at #3.
Jay Cutler should be higher than every QB not named Luckman.
The measure of a Bear isn't just in stats. Brian Piccolo accomplished more in his short life than Jay Cutler could ever have in a lifetime...
Move Khalil Mack further up to maybe low 50's high 40's because even though hes only been here for a year he's easily one of our best players and then move Eddie Jackson up as well (higher than Jay Cutler please he shouldn't be on this list at all).
Jim McMahon Needs to be at bare minimum in the 30's of this list. As the only Bears quarterback to win a Super Bowl in the Super Bowl ERA.
Las Vegas, NV
Brian Urlacher to number #7.
I think Bob Wetoska was every bit as good as Big Cat Williams.
Leslie Frazier was better than Charles Tillman and Allan Ellis. The best pure cover in 1984 and 1985. He belongs on the list.
I'd put Brian and Samurai in the top ten. They're two if my all time favorite players and I feel they should be in the top ten of all time greats in the history of this beloved franchise. Walter Payton will always be the greatest of all Bears players in my eyes!!!

Wally Chambers has a career cut short by injuries but he should be much higher on the list.
Brian Urlacher should be top 10 easily! No player who played under 5 years should be in the top 25.
