The Chicago Bears have had their share of under-appreciated players.
The Chicago Bears are a historic franchise. Throughout its storied history, the organization has had so many all-time greats out on the orange and blue since its inception more than 100 years ago. Sometimes, though, when your ranks have been filled with the likes of Walter Payton, Dick Butkus, Gale Sayers, etc., it can be easy to overlook others who had very productive but perhaps underappreciated careers.
Such is the case with Bears’ running back Neal Anderson. Anderson had the unenviable task of following one of the aforementioned legends in Walter Payton. Payton, who finished his illustrious Bears career in 1987 was followed by Anderson, who was drafted No. 27 overall in the 2006 NFL Draft.
