Iron Mike speaks

Boy, that Mike Ditka isn't bitter or anything.

He called former Bears president Michael McCaskey "a snake.'' He calls Saints owner Tom Benson "stupid.'' And he refuses to pick either team to win the game.

You can read Ditka's rant in the Chicago Sun-Times.

Ditka deserved better treatment in Chicago. He did coach the Bears to their only Super Bowl win (although he screwed over Walter Payton in the process).

But New Orleans, that's another story. Calling New Orleans a "dirty city'' in a national publication didn't help. Nor did trading away the 1999 draft for dope-smoking Ricky Williams. Not to mention all of the losing.

It's understandable Ditka wanting to stay out of this game. It's not so understandable to still be bitter so long after being fired.
