Is there a town in America that embraces it's offensive lineman more than Chicago? Former offensive lineman Tom Thayer is the color man on all Bears radio broadcasts. Dan Jiggets has been a radio & television fixture in this town for years. (And the late Mike Pyle before him). Jimbo Covert and Jay Hilgenberg are regular contributors to WBBM's pre and post game shows. Long-snapper Patrick Mannely co-hosted a show with Matt Spiegel. And now, Olin Kreuz and Big Cat Williams will be hosting a post game show on the Score.
This is what happens when your team produces zero memorable quarterbacks.
