The Chicago Bears may not be the most successful team in terms of Super Bowl triumphs and have largely been underwhelming in the modern era of the National Football League (NFL), but they do hold the record for most wins by an NFL franchise with 769.
The Bears also have the most players in the Pro Football Hall of Fame as well as the most retired jersey numbers with 14. It may also have something to do with the fact that the Bears were established in 1920 and are one of the oldest franchises in the NFL along with the Green Bay Packers and Arizona Cardinals.
The Bears didn’t get their name from the moment they were playing in fact they got the name Bears two years after the franchise was established. The team in Chicago started out for the first two years (1920-22) as a food starch company team called ‘ the Staleys’ when the Staley Starch Company wanted to enter the world of NFL sponsors and wanted to keep a team in Chicago, and in 1922 they named the team the Chicago Bears.
The Bears were dominant in the early stages of the NFL as they won seven NFL Championships between the 20s to the 40s, with the most dominant period coming between the 30s and 40s.
Between the 30s and 40s the team claimed six NFL titles (1932, 1933, 1940, 1941, 1943 and 1946) which is largely thanks to George Halas who coached the team from 1933-1942 and won three championships during his time (1933, 1940 and 1941).
Halas came back a few years later coaching the team from 1946-1955 and again from 1958-1967 which saw him add two more NFL Championships to his name (after the Bears won the NFL championship under Hunk Anderson and Luke Johnsos in 1943, Halas took them to win the 1946 and 1963 NFL championships).
All in all Halas had four coaching stints with the Bears spanning 40 years (10 years for each stint) and coached 497 games with 318 wins and claimed six NFL titles, he later served as owner for the Bears.
The team would have to wait nearly 20 years before they reached success again, as Mike Ditka who was coach of the Bears from 1982-1992 led them to their only Super Bowl (their ninth NFL championship) triumph for the 1985 season, after they defeated the New England Patriots 46-10 in Super Bowl XX.
The 1985 season could be seen as one of the best seasons ever by the Bears as they only lost one game in the season, going down to Miami Dolphins in round 13. They also had a dominant defence which was headlined in the playoffs when they kept the New York Giants and the Los Angeles Rams scoreless in the divisional round and in the championship game defeating them 21-0 and 24-0, on the way to clinch their maiden Vince Lombardi trophy.
The Bears returned to the Super Bowl in 2006 after a 13-3 win loss record in the regular season, and did well in the playoffs defeating Seattle Seahawks in the divisional round and the New Orleans Saints in the championship game, however, they fell to a strong Indianapolis Colts going down 29-17.
The Bears had a four-year wait before they returned to playoff action, when they made it all the way to the NFC Championship game where they lost to their biggest rivals Green Bay Packers 21-14. The 2018 season under new coach Matt Nagy saw an end to an eight-year playoff drought when his side finished on top of the NFC North standings with a 12-4 win loss record, which led them to a spot in the postseason.
The Bears faced the Philadelphia Eagles in the wildcard playoff game, however, it ended in heartbreak for the Bears faithful as they went down by a point losing 16-15. The 2019 season saw the Bears missing a playoff appearance by two wins in the NFC North as they had a record of 8-8 which meant they finished third.
If you are a fan of the Chicago Bears, then you know that the only thing that matters right now is how they are expected to perform in the 2020 / 2021 season. Do the Chicago Bears have the star power to make it all the way to the Super Bowl in 2021? Have a read on below at SportsTips expert picks & preview on the Chicago Bears:
Having been around NFL coaching ranks since 2008, Matt Nagy was given the chance to lead his own team in 2018, taking the reins of the Chicago Bears. Touted as a very strategic and intelligent coach, Nagy had an immediate on field impact in Chicago, leading them to a NFC North division title with a 12-4 record and claiming the Associated Press National Football League Coach of the Year Award in just his first season.
Since his appointment in 2018, Bears players have praised Nagy for the impact he has had on team culture / morale. Off the back of an 8-8 season in 2019, Nagy has a career record of 20-12 at the Bears. After leading the Bears to the 4th ranked defence in 2020, Nagy will need to take this Bears roster back to the playoffs to solidify his position as head coach in Chicago.
Eight-year veteran quarterback Nick Foles, has landed himself in Chicago to continue his well-travelled NFL career. Coming from Jacksonville this offseason, Foles will be competing for the first-string Quarterback position with 2017 Pick #2 Mitchell Trubisky. 25-year-old Trubisky finished the 2019 season ranking 28th in quarterback rating, 27th in touchdown passes and 32nd (last) in yards per pass attempt, from 15 starts.
With age on his side, Trubisky is far from a bust, however, Foles has a superior passer rating (92.8) to Trubisky (87.7), and has proven that he can perform at an elite level on numerous occasions. Highlighted by a Super Bowl MVP performance in the Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl LII victory in 2018. At 31 years of age Foles’ proven level of success is likely to make the first-string QB position in Chicago a competitive one.
Regarded by his former coach as a ‘future Hall of Famer’, there isn’t much in the game that Kahlil Mack hasn’t accomplished. In just two seasons with the Bears, Mack has already collected 21.0 sacks and forced 11 fumbles, earning consecutive Pro Bowl invitations and being selected to the 2018 All Pro First Team.
Since being drafted by the Raiders in 2014, Mack was named in the NFL Team of the 2010’s, having been awarded the 2016 NFL Defensive Player of the Year award. Mack became the highest paid defensive player in the history of the NFL when he signed with Chicago, a deal worth $141 million over six year.
By his own standards, 2019 was an off year for Mack, starting all 16 games, but only managing single digit sacks for the first time since his rookie season. Entering the third year of his historic deal, the Bears will be hoping Mack can return to his Defensive Player of the Year form, and get his sack numbers back into the double digits. Something he is certainly capable of doing at only 29 years of age.
After making the playoffs in 2018, the Bears just missed out on another postseason appearance as they had a record of 8-8 (only two wins behind Minnesota Vikings) and finished third in the NFC north standings.
The Bears finished the 2019 with a 4-12-0 against the spread in the NFC north, the worst out of any team. When they were the home team they also had the worst record in the division as they finished with a 3-5-0 record and when they were the away team they had a 1-6-0 record.
The Bears also had the worst record in the NFC north when it came to the over / under where they had a 6-10-0 record, it didn’t get much better as when they were the home side they still had the worst over / under record as they were 2-6-0, their away form was slightly better than their home form, but they still the worst in the NFC North as they were 3-4-0.
At the start of the season the Bears were in the mix to make the playoffs as their value was +1600 a few days before their first game, and even after their opening game loss to Green Bay Packers there was still much hope for the Bears as they were +1533.
From September 16 to September 30, the Bears had a three game winning streak which included wins over Denver, Washington and Minnesota and by October 1 they were valued at +1867. The Bears had their biggest value move early in November which they rose to +20833 after they were on the end of a four game losing streak from October 7 to November 4.
November 25 to December 6 saw the Bears have a three game winning streak, which saw them come back into contention when their value dropped to +18333. However, it lasted a few days as they finished the season on +20000.
