"When we look at our country and see all of the gaps that need to be filled, we naturally look for help from places like government and schools. But if dads in our country would make a commitment to their children, not just financially, but also spiritually and physically - reading to them, hugging them and just loving them - if we could get fathers of America to commit to that, then I really believe that America could again reclaim its greatness," Mike Singletary, a former Chicago Bear and an NFL Hall of Famer, told All Pro Dad in 2005.
"Don't know," Singletary said. "Do they have the players? Yes. Do they have the talent? Yes. Maturity is going to be the thing that has to be there. Hopefully, they can do that."
