Gayle, a defensive back who played with Da Bears from 1984 to 1994, says that its an anomaly that a team that won only one Super Bowl in the last 20 years was and is more popular than teams which won two or three times within that span.
He says its because that years team featured so many diverse personalities and characters, but more importantly, was so dominating.
Da Bears are celebrating the 20th anniversary of their Super Bowl victory in 1985 with special events including raffling off a customized chopper signed by each player on the 85 roster. Its bringing together players who havent seen each other since Walter Paytons funeral.
Gayle says the anniversarys been a blessing in that way. As he puts it, We dont want something tragic to happen all the time for us to get together.
