Memories, like the cornerbacks of my mind

A fellow co-worker reminded me this morning of the demolition defense days of the 80s Bears. He brought back memories of Coach Buddy Ryan, Singletary, Dent, Hampton, Duerson, Fencik, and someone I hadn’t thought of in years, or admittedly, knew much about except he was the other half of the “hit men.” Doug Plank.

And because I could never do this justice, here is a great article courtesy of the NY Times on the history of the 46 Defense. THE 46. The defense that changed football.
