BBAO: Ditka says Johnson made catch

We're Black and Blue All Over:

Chicago Bears

Gale Sayers is challenging the current players to help former players. "Some players of today's game think that they made the game what it is today. I beg to differ," Sayers said Friday night at an event hosted by the Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund.

"If today's players cannot help these players, shame on you."
