LAKE FOREST – Sports teams put out lots of creative tweets ever day in hopes of making a connection with fans while also celebrating the exploits of their players.

The Bears accomplished both with a Tweet on Monday paying tribute to a record broken by second-year running back Jordan Howard.

You could say this one stood out above the rest.

In honor of Howard becoming the fastest Bears player to ten rushing games, they decided to use some photoshop magic to pay tribute to the guy whose record he broke.

That’s Walter Payton, and the above picture is the tribute the Bears came up with to honor Howard. It’s a picture of Payton at the Silverdome looking at the superimposed Howard as he comes off the sidelines.

The picture has been like over 3,500 times and got some attention from Walter’s son, WGN and CLTV Sports Feed anchor Jarrett Payton.
