History

The Chicago Bears are members of the NFL’s National Football Conference and are one of two original NFL franchises that are still in existence today. Along with the Arizona Cardinals, the Bears are the only other team to have played in every NFL season since 1920.

The Bears were founded in Decatur, Illinois in 1919 and were known as the Staleys. The club moved to Chicago in 1920 and became charter members of the NFL. In 1921, owner George Halas changed the team name to the Bears which the club has played under ever since. The Bears became a very successful team, winning championships in the 1920’s, 1930’s and 1940’s. It was during the 1940’s that the Bears earned the nickname “the Monsters of the Midway” as they won five championships between 1940 and 1946.

George Halas both coached the team and played for them during the 1920’s. He was instrumental in developing the t-formation offense and developing the position of quarterback. Sid Luckman became one of the first QBs to rely on his athleticism and strategy on the field while using complex offensive schemes. The Bears defeated the Redskins in the 1940 NFL Championship 73 to 0 which still stands as the largest margin of victory in an NFL game.

The 1985 Chicago Bears were winners of Super Bowl XX and are considered by many to be the greatest NFL team ever. The club gave up just 198 points during the regular season of that year and won a total of 15 games. They also set the record for the largest margin of victory in a Super Bowl, winning by 36 points over the New England Patriots.

The Super Bowl win in 1985 is the team’s only Super Bowl title. However, the Bears have eight NFL Championships which ranks them second only to Green Bay. The Bears also have more former players elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame than any other franchise. Some of these greats include Walter Payton, Dick Butkus, and Gale Sayers.

The Bears played in the historic Wrigley Field when they moved to Chicago in 1920. In 1971, the club moved into Soldier Field. This was largely because the NFL required its teams to play in stadiums that could seat at least 50,000 people. This rule came into effect after 1970 when the NFL merged with the AFL. Soldier Field was renovated in 2008, so it would be brought up to date but retain its historic feel.
