Bobby Douglass, who played for the Bears in the early 1970s, was a big strong kid who did a lot of running. Ran for close to 1,000 yards one year (in a 14-game season).
Fran Tarkenton, who played int he '60s and '70s, didn't run as much, but he was quite the scrambler.
And Russell Wilson is the reincarnation of Fran Tarkenton.
Yes I remember Booby Douglass well, since I lived in Chicago during all his years and the superbowl winners with the refrigerator Perry, Payton, & coach Ditka. Bobby was built like a full back with speed. As exciting as he was, Bears did not win many games with him at QB.
But the most excitement for me was the 6 time win by the Bulls with MJ & Pippin. No team in ANY sport will match that string of championships and electric excitement of that era in any city. I have not seen any player with the jump shot accuracy from outside the zone. That shot was impossible to defend.
Big difference, because the Bears went nowhere while Bobby Douglas played for them. The joke was that Douglas was discharged from the National Guard unit he belonged to because he always ran with a hand-grenade instead of throwing it, but that was never confirmed.
