Look back at the life of Walter Payton, one of the greatest running backs, Chicago Bears and men of all time through the eyes of his teammates, family and friends. Payton's son Jarrett sits down with Jim McMahon, Dan Hampton, Steve McMichael, Gary Fencik, Barry Sanders and others to put his prowess and passion in perspective.
Walter Payton shared the sidelines with Gary Fencik for all but one of his thirteen seasons.
The Bears hard-hitting safety had a soft spot for Sweetness from the very beginning. Whether it was a harrowing ride in Payton's black turbo Porsche, a form tackle that went too far or a half stick of dynamite on a racquetball court, Fencik always remembers Walter smiling.
The Hit Man reminisces about those stories, the Bears quarterback carousel in the 1970's, the Doug Flutie era, Payton's penchant for breathtaking bear hugs and what made Sweetness so special on and off the field.
