Who played linebacker for the Chicago Bears from 1966-1979 passed away on April 20, 2015. He played alongside Dick Butkus and had more than 1,200 tackles. Going over 100 tackles in seven seasons. He also was the defensive Captain for eight seasons. He also had 24 interceptions his first two were off of Bart Starr and Johnny Unitas both Hall of Fame Quarterbacks. When he retired he was the last active Chicago Bear player to have played for George Halas. As a Bear player he played in the third of the most games at 186. Still holds their record for most career interceptions at linebacker (24) and most sacks in a season (18) in 1968. Even though I am a Packer fan, Doug Buffone was a heck of a player and stayed in Chicago after his playing days were over.
