George Halas

My opinion

I think George Halas is one of the greatest football men of all time. His additions and innovations to the game of football have helped mold it into what it is today. Although he lived a long while ago, I think Halas can still be regarded as one of the best Bears players ever. We need to all remember our roots and where our great American game has come from.
