I covered the Penn football game for Sunday's Inquirer, and I also wrote a story for the paper about the unveiling of the Chuck Bednarik statue at Franklin Field.

There were quite a few big names on hand for the occasion. I talked to Bednarik, Dick Vermeil and Ed Rendell. I'm pretty sure that I don't need to tell you what's on their resumés.

Here are some highlights of what they had to say about the unveiling of the statue, and what it means to give Bednarik a permanent place of honor at Franklin Field.
