About The Chicago Bears
Originally owned by A.E Staley in 1919 and located in Decatur, Illinois the Bears were not always known as the Bears they used to be called the Decatur Staley.
Not until George Halas took over the team in 1920 did they become a charter member of the NFL and moved to the city of Chicago but were then called the Chicago Staley. It wasn’t until 1922 when they adopted the nickname Bears which is derived from the Chicago baseball team the Chicago Cubs.
The bears for the most part have remained in the Halas family when George died in 1983 his daughter Virginia McCaskey took over the team.
Since their charter into the NFL the Bears have played over one thousand games, won nine league tittles (only the Green Bay Packer hold more titles with 12) including eight NFL Championships and one Super Bowl (XX).
The Bears have an impressive overall record of 671 wins 495 losses and 42 ties.
They have the longest running rivalry with the Green Bay Packers. The rivalry started when George Halas got the Packers expelled for the league so they wouldn’t sign a particular player and after that particular player signed on with the Chicago Bears George Halas influenced the NFL to reinstate the Packers.
The Bears have played the Packer in 170 games.
In the early 40’ the Bears dominated the NFL reaching the Championship five times in a seven year season and winning four of the NFL Championships.
With their domination they had taken the unused nickname of the University of Chicago and called themselves “Monsters of the Midway.”
Also in the forties the Bears hold a record that has yet to be broken. A Championship game upset, 73 to 0 against the Washington Redskins.
In 1975 they drafted who is unmistakable the most popular Chicago Bear and probably the most well known name in football and that name would be Walter Payton.
Walter Payton would go on to break many long standing records like when he broke Jim Browns Career rushing record in 1983. Payton would hold on to that record until 2002 when Dallas Cowboy Emmit Smith beat it. Payton also won the MVP two consecutive years in a row, 1977 and ’78. Because of his personality and likeability he was nicknamed “Sweetness”.
Of course, Walter Payton is by far not the only famous player the Bears have produced; in fact the Bears are responsible for having inducted twenty-six players into the Football Hall of Fame which is more than any team in the NFL.
