Ditka won't let loyalty impact opinions
Former Bears head coach and Chicago icon 'Iron' Mike Ditka isn't letting his Windy City ties hold him back from voicing his honest opinions.
Not only does Ditka feel Calvin Johnson's catch in Week 1 vs. the Bears was legit, saying “The game in Chicago they got stolen from them. That should never have happened. I don’t give a (expletive) what the rule says. That’s a bad rule and it was interpreted wrong and it was officiated poorly.”
He also feels the Lions are poised for a strong season.
“They’ve got a good, young coach. They’ve got a good, young quarterback. They’ve got as good of a defensive line in football. They’ve got a hell of a receiver. They’ve got a good running back. They’ve got a got a lot things in the mix right now.” (freep.com)
