Ten players on the Bears’ 53-man roster have been voted to the Pro Bowl, with five of those individuals receiving a combined 28 invitations to the league’s annual all-star game.
Despite that type of talent, receiver Devin Hester doesn’t think that egos will be a problem as the Bears pursue a common goal that has eluded most of their players, including all 10 Pro Bowlers.
“You’ve just got to look at the big picture, plain and simple,” Hester said Friday. “The big picture is winning the Super Bowl, and everybody is buying into that.
“This team is full of stars, full of Pro Bowlers. But there are very few of us that have Super Bowl rings and that’s what we’re trying to achieve. When we talk about that, we put our egos to the side and say, ‘we’ve got to look at the bigger picture and let’s try to win a Super Bowl ring.’”
Only three players on the roster have won a Super Bowl: Defensive backs Tim Jennings and Kelvin Hayden when the Indianapolis Colts beat the Bears to cap the 2006 season and tight end Matt Spaeth when the Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Arizona Cardinals to end the 2008 campaign.
