The Bears wished Ditka "a speedy recovery" on Twitter.

Prayers for Coach Ditka.
Bob: If I may shift gears for a moment gentleman, coach Ditka vs. The Hurricane, who would win?
Todd, Pat, Carl: Ditka, Ditka!!
Bob: Hold on, Hold on, Hold on. The name of the Hurricane is Hurricane Ditka.
Great guy. We had our 50th grammar school class reunion at his joint in Chicago. He was the same age/class and came by and schmoozed with us. Prince of a man. Get well soon coach and godspeed. Don’t make them like that anymore.
Feel better coach! From an era when the NFL was still decent!
85 Bears had the greatest DEFENSE. Offense was just good enough.
What do you expect from Da Coach . . . the team is 8-3. Like he ever expected to see that again in his lifetime.
Hope for a speedy recovery.
The 1984 49ers may have been the best team of the 1980s. Dominant offensive team (and Jerry Rice hadn't even been drafted yet!) and a very underrated defense. I think they are still the only NFL team in history to send all four of their starting defensive backs to the Pro Bowl.
Ditka might well be more popular in Chicago than Michael Jordan. That is saying something.
Never forget Fridge’s touchdown :D
The IL GOP should’ve gone all out to recruit him as the replacement Senate candidate against Zero in 2004. The jug-eared jackass would’ve been stopped dead in his tracks.
The GOP tried. Ditka considered running but declined. IMHO he knew that the Dems would attack him for real and imagined events in his or his loved ones background. Dems are evil bullies and will stop at nothing to ruin anyone that they consider a threat to their power.
I wish he would have run against the gay blade.....he would have won....and the world might not be quite so bad off.....
.......when good people do nothing......
