LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- One of the most consistent players in team history, Bears long snapper Patrick Mannelly, is about to play his 192nd game in a Bears uniform, which would set the franchise's all-time record.

Mannelly and former defensive great Steve McMichael are currently tied for the all-time team lead with 191 games played.

The always reliable 35-year old long snapper, who happens to be in the final year of his contract, had the media in stiches Friday when discussing how long he'd like to keep playing.

"All of the above," Mannelly laughed. "Aren't they the same? They are in this business."
