1985 Bears Coverage: Bears' Payton a real hot dog

Every day of the 2015 Chicago Bears season, Chicago Sun-Times Sports will revisit its coverage 30 years ago during the 1985 Bears’ run to a Super Bowl title.

These are letters to the editor featuring comments and questions about the Bears and the baseball season.

Originally published Sept. 8, 1985

I find it amusing that Johnny Morris had the nerve to accuse one of the Colts players of “hot-dogging” it into the end zone during a recent Bears game – especially since the Bears boast of having, in my opinion, the premier hot dog in football in Walter Payton. His high stepping in the end zone, pushing the football forward after being tackled and tossing the football to defenders after the play has stopped is nothing short of being a hot dog.
