    Chicago Bears History

    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 fall one win short of a Wild Card slot, but in 2020 the managed to sneak in thanks to a tiebreaker. They were easily dismissed in the Wild Card Round by the New Orleans Saints and are left with plenty of questions surrounding their offense, specifically quarterback.

    The Bears are not a very exciting team to bet on at all as they are extremely inconsistent. They started the season 5-1 and on top of the NFC but a six game losing streak put their postseason at risk. They then finished 3-1 to just sneak in but were the biggest underdogs of Wild Card Round and justified that by losing 9-21.

    The Bears have opened with the equal second worst odds of +3300 to win the NFC while having the equal fifth worst odds for Super Bowl LVI, coming in at +6600.
