On the 25th anniversary of the Chicago Bears Super Bowl XX championship,
one players unique odyssey to prominence remains especially remarkable.
Richard Dent, a cornerstone of the Bears defense during their Super
Bowl run, and a 2011 inductee into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, was an
8th-round draft pick out of tiny Tennessee State in 1983. The tall and
skinny rookie would become a 4-time Pro Bowl selection. Dent wound up
his brilliant 15-year career with 137.5 sacks, eight interceptions, 13
fumble recoveries, and two touchdowns. Coming out of a small college
with less fanfare than many of his high-profile peers, Dent talks about
the inherent disrespect he received. The book, written with sportswriter
Fred Mitchell, takes the reader behind the scenes of one of the
fiercest, most dominant defenses in NFL history. Playing in the NFL
during a time before violent helmet-to-helmet tackles were not
forbidden, Dent discusses the direction of the current game in this
candid book.
