"Shameful pieces of history we have to be willing to look at the people who we love and who we revere who affect us it be very easy for me to write a national story about this and. not focus on George Halas and focus even we about you know of all of these people bird Val Dzhokhar and look at all of them evenly and it would have been a lot more comfortable to do that as a Chicago in as a bears fan as a person who lives here and part of the community but but I think that when you look at these pieces of history you have to look at yourself first and as a bears fan George houses effectively an extension of my self in the sense that he's the team even founded the team that it. yeah asus means a lot. in here with the nexus means more so black whites own gene they inherited the team the in here to the the Numark than than that that's what you can but team day. bit but the origin of it was written in in racial segregation. yeah absolutely and you know history is complicated listen the bears in nineteen forty nine became the first team to draft a black player George Taliaferro from Indiana University now they didn't he ended up going to a different team the LA don's in this competing league so we didn't then have a black player until nineteen fifty two with Willie Macon so people say how can you you know how can you say that George Halas or that tomorrow or the curly Lambeau or that art Rooney Charles Bidwill how can you say this about them it was just a twelve your band well the bears existed from nineteen twenty to nineteen thirty three with no NFL ban and they were all white the bears the bears didn't have a black player until nineteen fifty two the eagles and have a black player until nineteen fifty the Packers didn't have one until forty nine or fifty the giants and have one until nineteen forty eight so to just say oh it was the ban that's the third piece of that what I meant by truth is to say yes it was the band that was official or it's an unofficial in other words it wasn't in the by laws but you know it happened. but these teams have been around for a decade or more before they were around for several years after but again like I said history is complicated George George Halas like I said drafted the first black player he was in nineteen fifty three signed the first modern black quarterback Willie thrower he famously had gale Sayers and Brian piccolo room together first integrated roommates and so nothing is quite so simple what we have to know the truth and we have to confront it and not run away from it. he sees me the obligation.

"Coming up here in a few minutes talking about old quarterback's old school great quarterbacks in the NFL norm Snead name comes up on the tax line played for the red skins the eagles the Vikings the giants the forty Niners and the giants again fifteen years in the league that's a long career yeah I remember the red skins in the eagles I don't remember much of him after that he had all of his good years with the eagles is what it looks like any four time pro bowler but once again when you look at is his stats is touchdowns the interception ratio is really not good one ninety six to two fifty seven they all I mean all of them are they all email to check it you name it they don't have name assessor from me but his career touchdown mark to interception more he's very close to five yeah right hi char is almost right at five hundred because they took more shots downfield they didn't have the dump off to check if there wasn't a precision passing offense because that's just not what the league did and then when Joe Walsh Joe Walsh bill Walsh Kimmel chilled yeah the guitar player bill Walsh came along it seems like he was the guy that really changes the NFL offenses am I right about that you know the west coast offense that he brought in yeah I I think he gets kind of changed everything he gets a lot of a lot of credit for that no question about that you know sid Gillman I think also should rightfully get credit for yeah don Corey L. after Gilman but I think Gilman right you know to me Gellman was the guy in Gilman was well before bill Walsh that sort of revolutionized the passing game in the NFL by the way Johnny United this to illustrate the point we're talking about career completion mark under fifty five percent he threw two hundred ninety touchdown passes and two hundred and fifty three interceptions while Johnny you Johnny you crazy just average statistics by today's standards yep Scott Glenn next okailey newsradio five fifty or Tom Hagelin yeah Hey guys why a total what I haven't heard you talk about him I know San Francisco Giants season the yeah giant hall of Famer but since that time I you know what let me what a great name why a total yeah why through in his career two hundred and twelve touchdowns in two hundred and twenty one interceptions but it was it was a hell of a player but it again it just it just continues it is completion mark was fifty five percent for his career but again I mean you took more chances with the ball there's there's a famous picture of why a total on his knees with his helmet off after game bleeding and most of the game they lost I I presume but I'm not I'm not so sure that the the what what you're talking about is not the sixty three maybe grant can help us here the sixty three title game I think the bears in the giants I could be wrong on that but you get a picture of total on the field this helmet off his head is bleeding he's on both knees yes I I I want to say I could be wrong I want to say that was a sixty three the bears won the title sixty three I I that may have been in that game yeah that's a classic picture yeah and and and IT I'd never saw why you total play but I remember that picture nineteen sixty four game against the Steelers sixty four so as the year after yes okay a year after you Richard Mille palm Dave I don't think it was on the but maybe off the Milt plum had one great year with the the the Browns nineteen sixty his passer rating of one hundred and ten in nineteen sixty was the best single season mark in the NFL until nineteen eighty nine wow can you believe that milk free can pump no Milt plum was my dad's most hated player in the sixties watching the lions play my dad would you be yelling at the TV every Sunday I thought it was kind of funny right then he got me yelling at the TV as I got older as a little kid the Browns traded plan to the lions as part of a six player deal nineteen sixty two and then he ended up getting benched that year in favor of Earl moral and he lost his starting job the next year to moral so he was a Boston he had that great year that one just killer year with the Browns right and they thought he was gonna be they look like a hall of Famer future hall of Famer and then broke out I did yes I still remember my dad yelling at him in that amazing the what you what you do remember yes you know it is amazing you do remember routes gonna be next okay away with David wreck it Ralph Hey are you guys doing good Hey I'm on this subject I want to try to dump you guys if I can with the little NFL quarterback trivia five may have at it who who was the first black quarterback in NFL wordy play marlin Briscoe or Joe no it would be yeah well it with marlin yeah we don't said that earlier if you meet technically you could go back it would might not have been in the NFL as we now know what but there would have been an African American quarterback and try to memories name the play back in the fifties with marlin Briscoe play here in Denver back in what was that about sixty sixty six or sixty seven maybe sounds about right for a greatest sixty eight okay ninety six five eight and I remember he wore fifteen number fifteen enough when they wore the red pants when they're on the road yeah is that what you guys are smart he was held player route thanks for the call and they get all rated to get traded to Miami and they moved him from quarterback to wide receiver I think I remember that I made the Pro Bowl as a wide receiver take I remember that is one other interesting note here about mill plan he still currently holds the NFL record for the longest completed pass to himself he threw a twenty yard pass to himself how do you do that ball battered up at the line of scrimmage that's the only way you could you should and then you run for twenty yards that happened with somebody else has also record somebody else has to touch the ball yeah right so I he he he wouldn't I throw it up high and then run down the sideline and catch it who would have to be bad in any ran with it and that's still a record in the NFL according to is we keep page at the court at quarterback that my to think about Willie thrower grant what you're what you're to really throw or play yes Sir he was and and playing in the fifties and he was at the a FC what what young league was that yep all American football conference I don't remember him.
