Damn. Dude was so quick and elusive. Precursor to the Marcus Allen/Barry Sanders type. RIP.
Blazed the path.
Drafted by...George Allen.
Hopefully he and Brian Piccolo are having fun catching up on old times.
in was in my late teens when brian's song came out, and i loved that movie, but i'd long been a fan of sayers---two all time fave rbs for me were gale sayers and barry sanders for the fluidity and grace and speed and reaction-time and decision-making...loved watching that combo of traits more unique to them then to many of their contemporaries (at least that's how it seemed to me as a young fan back in the day)...and sayers seemed like such a great guy off the field
rip mr.sayers and thank you
Very sad news indeed. I was 10 when Brian's Song came out but it had a profound impact on me. I was just a few years into my football interest. The relationship and loyalty the two had struck me. I was a little too young to remember watching Gale run much in games but I remembered the name when the movie came out. A truly gifted athlete but also an amazing man. I am fortunate enough to have an autographed copy of My Life and Times (My ex-girlfriend got it for me - long story). Great book!
What a sad day. All the best to his family.
That's going to leave a mark. Damn.
Some of my most treasured childhood memories are of watching Gale Sayers highlights with my father on the old Super 8 projector circa 1977 or so. Had a little cry about it this morning.
Rest In Peace to the great one.
If the Bears didn't have such a ****ty team during his tenure and injuries, he would have at least seen the playoffs in his career. RIP
