The Best Chicago Bears Of All Time By Jersey Number: #50-59

3355

#59-Gary Campbell

Tenure: 1977-1983

I know some of you may have been expecting Ron Rivera in this final spot of the day, and he did get the runner-up title, but after careful calculations and plenty of research, I had to go with Gary Campbell. He was a key member of the Bears as they were beginning their ascent to greatness and Rivera essentially stepped in after he left. No, seriously. Rivera came to the team the season following Campbell’s departure.
