Rank 'Em: Greatest Chicago Bears

Created: August 7, 2009, 7:57 AM

Where does Walter Payton rank?

Who are the greatest players in Bears history, SportsNation?

Jay Cutler is certainly making a name for himself off the field, but the young quarterback will eventually have to live up to the hype on the field if we wants to earn a place alongside some of the franchise's all-time greats. From current defensive cornerstone Brian Urlacher all the way back to Red Grange in the league's earliest days, the Bears have accumulated plenty of greatness.

Does Walter Payton edge out Mike Singletary or Dick Butkus at the top of the list? Is a Super Bowl win enough to earn Jim McMahon a place in the top 10? Rank the best the Windy City has seen, SportsNation.
