The 1985 Chicago Bears were on a roll. On October 13 they'd invaded San Francisco and returned home with a decisive victory over the 49ers. By beating the defending Super Bowl champs that Sunday afternoon, the Bears had run their record to 6-0.Now it was just past midnight, early Monday morning.
When I was 11 years old, this was the Packers team I knew. They were terrible and couldn't play with the Chicago Bears. So what did they do? They took cheap shots all over the field, all the time. And they prided themselves on it.
The 1985 Bears hold a special place in the hearts of Chicago sports fans. On the field, they decimated opponents on their way to Super Bowl victory. And off the field, their personalities were as big, or bigger than, their athletic talents.
They were a team unlike any other. The players were icons. The play, inspired. 25 years later, their remarkable 1985 season lives on as the most celebrated in Chicago history. From the shuffle to the Super Bowl, we look back.The 1985 Chicago Bears lost only one regular season game.
