The NFL’s Chicago Bears are part of the National Football Conference (NFC) and are in the conference’s North Division. The Bears were established in 1919 and have been located in Chicago, Illinois since 1921. They play their home games at Solider Field.

Chicago has a long winning tradition, which includes 25 playoff appearances and nine league titles—8 NFL championships and one Super Bowl win. They’ve also garnered 17 Division and four Conference Championships. In 1985, they hammered the New England Patriots 46- 10 in Super Bowl XX. That was their only Super Bowl victory.

The club was originally named the Decatur Stanleys. The A.E. Staley Company first established the team in 1919 in Decatur, Illinois. George Halas, the legendary coach of team, renamed them the Bears in 1922. He also decided that the team colors would be dark blue and orange, matching those of the University of Illinois, which was Halas’ alma mater.

In their early years, Chicago dominated the league, winning NFL championships in 1921, 1932, 1933, 1940, 1941, 1943 and 1946. Since 1960, they have won just two more championships, including one more NFL title in 1963 and their only Super Bowl Championship.

The franchise moved to Chicago in 1921 and played at Wrigley from that year until 1970. They then made Soldier Field their home from 1971- 2001, and after a one-year hiatus where they played at Memorial Stadium in 2002, went back to a totally rebuilt Solider Field. They still play their home games there.

Hall of Fame players who have worn the Chicago uniform include quarterback Sid Luckman (1940- 1947), linebacker Dick Butkus (1965- 1973), running back Gale Sayers (1965- 1971) and running back Walter Payton (1975- 1987).

Luckman threw for 14,686 yards and 137 touchdown passes. The Bears retired his number (42). In his career, Butkus made 1,020 tackles, grabbed 22 interceptions and gathered up 27 fumbles. Sares rushed for 4,956 yards, earning 48 touchdowns. He averaged 5.0 YPC. Payton ran for 16,726 yards and 110 touchdowns, while averaging 4.4 YPC

Virginia Halas McCaskey has owned the Chicago Bears since 1983. Prior owners include the A.E. Staley Company (1919- 1921), George Halas and Dutch Sherman (1921- 1932) and Halas (1932- 1963).

The team’s mascot is Staley the Bear and their nicknames include Da Bears and the Monsters of the Midway. The team won their last conference title in 2006.

    Alessandra January 30, 2013 The Bears Drum Corps are exactly what you'd epexct with the talent that comes from around Chicago. Playing a heavy load of beats that ram full on is fun for them, although sometimes is lost on the fans, one chorus of Bear Down brings them back. Nice to see how they've evolved to including cymbals now, not just mounted on their drums too. Great crew to hang with!

    Adel , details make or break the amenrgut.. And that couldn't be much more true at this point. Having said that, let me reveal to you what did work. The writing can be highly convincing and this is most likely the reason why I am taking an effort to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, even though I can certainly notice a leaps in reason you come up with, I am definitely not confident of exactly how you seem to unite the details which inturn produce the actual final result. For now I will subscribe to your position however hope in the future you actually link your facts better.

    Jim Did you read your own article? Andre Ware the first African American to win the Heisman? Who, then, was Archie Griffin? Bo Jackson? What a joke of an article. It was a great idea, but executed poorly.
