The Best Chicago Bears Of All Time By Jersey Number: #60-69

#66-Clyde “Bulldog” Turner

Tenure: 1940-1952

While the stats you’ll see below are obviously from the defensive side, Clyde Turner actually was an All-Pro center as well. One of the great two-way players in NFL history, Turner was an All-Pro eight times, won four NFL championships, and is a member of the 1940s All-Decade Team. His #66 is retired and he was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1966. All these accolades for a guy who didn’t even want to be in Chicago. He was drafted by the Bears in 1940, but the Detroit Lions had apparently paid him $200 to get his teeth fixed and were later fined for tampering. I think it worked out for the Bears….and for Turner.
