Mr. Scot

James Anderson gets Mike Singletary's Number 50

The number isn't retired, but hasn't been used in 20 years.

Singletary himself is said to be fine with it.

Issue or non-issue in your mind?

After 20 years, I guess it wasn't meant to be. That's the real issue...if there is one.

The Bears have had to have multiple players with the same number in camp because they're running out of non-retired jerseys. Unless they start allowing letters and shapes instead of numbers there's not much to do about it.

I know you can't retire too many numbers, but I admit I'm kinda surprised Singletary's number isn't one of the retired.

Well, wasn't there a thread where everyone said Smith's number should be retired?

Even though it wasn't officially retired...no man should wear that number in Chicago. Definately not some FA pickup.

Don't have an issue cuz I don't care about the Bears or Mike SIngletary that much. Happy for JA, if it's a big deal to him. He's a good dude.

not a big deal if it's not made to be one, but if I were Anderson I wouldn't want those expectations.

Good point.

Sam Mills number wasn't officially retired until a few years back, but you'd have had to pry the number out of Jackie Miles cold, dead hands.

Good old Anderson. Expecting first class when he is a second class type player.

He should have taken 59(Rivera's old number), now that'd be the ultimate trolling. And like has been said above, Bears dont' have a whole lot of numbers that aren't tied to a particular person, or retired, so no reason for him not to get his old number.
