The Chicago Bears are one of only two franchises remaining in the NFL that were part of the league when it was originally founded in 1920. The Bears remain one of the most recognizable franchises in sports with one of the most passionate fanbases.
The franchise came from very humble beginnings, when they were founded in 1919 as a team for the A.E. Staley food starch company in Decatur, Illinois. It was just two years later that the team moved to their current home of Chicago under the guidance of the legendary George Halas. The Bears have seen plenty of success over their history, winning eight NFL championships and one Super Bowl title. The Super Bowl winning Bears team in 1985 is still regarded as one of the most dominant teams in NFL history, with Hall-of-Fame players Walter Payton and Mike Singletary leading the way. But one man that was part of the title team remains the most synonymous with the Chicago Bears: "Iron" Mike Ditka.
Ditka served as both a player and a coach for the Bears during his football career, gaining notoriety for his tough demeanor and sweatervests. He finished his Bears coaching career with a record of 106-62 and two NFL Coach of the Year Awards.
