Of course you want to hear what three living legends who starred at the position most synonymous with Bears football have to say about, well, anything:
Butkus. Singletary. Urlacher.

Dick Butkus, Mike Singletary, and Brian Urlacher will star on a panel of Hall of Fame middle linebackers at the Bears 100 Celebration Weekend.
If you’re keeping score at home, that’s three Hall of Fame middle linebackers from the league’s charter franchise who combined to make 26 Pro Bowls, 16 first-team All-Pro nominations while making countless tackles, sacks, interceptions, bone-crunching hits over the course of nearly 500 games in their collective professional years. That’s a whole lot of excellence between three legends on one panel. It’s sure to be a hit.
No franchise can boast a collection of Hall of Fame middle linebackers like what the Bears have, so it’s only right to showcase those stars in this way. Butkus and Singletary have long had front-facing personalities that fans have gravitated to over the years, but Urlacher is something of a late-bloomer. Everyone loved his play on the field, but Urlacher truly didn’t open up until after his playing career. Better late than never!
And if you’d like to see the panel as part of the Bears’ 100th anniversary celebration weekend, you can buy tickets here. Because I’m not sure you want to wait another 100 years to catch Butkus, Singletary, and Urlacher in the same room together again.
