Craig Heyward former NFL running back 5/30/06

Okay technically Craig Heyward probably wouldn't qualify for the Candle treatment except that he did play for the Bears for one season. He was on one of those bad Wannstedt teams back in the early 90's. I may be the only one who remembers that he actually had a deodorant commercial.

Goodbye Craig Heyward
Thought I knew you pretty well
You were playing for the Bears
When Wannestedt’s coaching smelled
You came out of Pitt
First round pick of the Saints you came
Became a big back
College greatness not attained again

And it seemed to my you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never knowing when to stop
And lose the weight again
And I would have liked to know you
But I was just a kid
Your candle burned out long before
Your deodorant commercial ever did.
