Hall of Fame defensive end Richard Dent blames Mike Ditka for the Chicago Bears' failure to follow up their Super Bowl XX triumph with more championships.
Appearing Wednesday on the "Mully and Hanley Show" on WSCR-AM 670, Dent was asked if a Super Bowl victory by this year's Bears team would take any luster away from the 1985 team's achievement.
