PFT on NBCSN: Dick Butkus, Bears Mt. Rushmore

Dick Butkus AP

The Bears have had a few great middle linebackers in their history, including Dick Butkus.

Butkus will join the Pro Football Talk on NBCSN crew on Tuesday to talk about the organization’s Mt. Rushmore, which will be revealed during the program. He’s one of 12 finalists, along with players like Sid Luckman, Bronko Nagurski and Mike Ditka, who won a Super Bowl as the team’s coach to go with his on-field exploits as a tight end. We’ll find out who he thinks is worthy of a spot and take a look back at some of the most memorable moments of Butkus’ career.

Erik Kuselias, Mike Florio and Ross Tucker will be on hand to guide you through some of the biggest stories of the day, including, of course, Tim Tebow’s arrival in New England. Tom Curran of CSN New England and former Chiefs General Manager Scott Pioli, who worked for the Patriots before heading to K.C., will share their thoughts on the signing and the possible role that Tebow will play for the Pats.

It all gets started at 5 p.m. ET on NBCSN.

    For me, the most memorable moment of Butkus’ career was when he played Ed Klawicki on My Two Dads.

    Long and rich tradition with Chicago Bear players throughout their history… but ONLY 4 can be named:
    Gale Sayers
    Walter Payton
    George Halas
    Dick Butkus

    You left out one big story. It’s the 100th anniversary of the birth date of Coach Vince Lombardi.

    Hey, it’s my birthday too! Imagine, two great NFL minds born on the same date.

    The Patriots signing a 3rd string quarterback is not a big news story. The media has created most of the controversy surrounding He Who Must Not Be Named. I avoid TMZ/gossip columns and that’s what any story about He Who Must Not Be Named has become. I refuse to open, read, or comment on any future posts with his name associated with it.

    Halas is Lombardi and Lambeau all in one, no question, but we don’t need to whine about it like all packer fans !!!

    tb Raiders- We all also agree to not read your posts as well. But we reserve the right to comment.

    I can’t believe there’s no room on Mt. Rushmore for one of only two quarterbacks to ever take the Bears to the Super Bowl.

    I’m referring, of course, to the great Rex Grossman.
