Decatur

While George "Papa Bear" Halas is the founder of the Bears, this fellow University of Illinois alum not only propelled the Bears onto the national stage, but propelled the NFL to national prominence. This running back became nationally famous when he grabbed the Michigan Wolverines by their collective necks and crammed rushing touchdowns of 95, 67, 56, and 45 yards down their throat in the first quarter of a 28 October 1924 game. His fame drew the largest football crowds the fledgling NFL had ever seen. Name this charter member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame who wore the now retired #77 for the Bears.

I never deliberately tried to hurt anybody, you know, unless it was important--like a league game or something.

This sounds like a pretty cool thing to say, but gets a bit creepy when you know that the guy who actually said it is often (erroneously) credited with killing Chuck Hughes of the Lions with a devastating tackle (the two never made contact on Hughes last play). In 2009, NFL.com named him the most feared tackler in the game's history. Identify this former Bears linebacker who also did some acting in films like Any Given Sunday and the television series Blue Thunder.

This defensive alignment was notable for being the first in football history to be regularly used with 8 men in the box, generally 6 men on the line with two in versatile linebacker roles. It was occasionally termed a "zone" defense, though this was because the linebacker-type players in the box were zone blitzers who could rush the offensive backfield or drop back into pass coverage. Identify this defensive scheme developed in 1984 by Bears' DC Budy Ryan, and named for the uniform number worn by strong safety Doug Plank.

On 8 December 1940, both the Bears and this opposing team had 17 first downs, with this team outgaining the Bears in the air, 223 to 119 yards. However, the Bears had a rare berserker outburst of offensive proficiency, hanging 73 points on this team without surrendering a point, leading to numerous rumors that the game was fixed. Identify this team that lost the 1940 NFL Championship to the Bears by a margin of victory that remains the largest in NFL history (the geographic name will be sufficient).

The 1932 NFL Championship game was played on 18 December 1932, and saw the Bears defeat the Portsmouth Spartans, 9-0. The game marked the first time the NFL adopted rules that were significantly different from the collegiate game, largely because of the venue which saw the field reduced to 80 yards and the goal posts move up to the goal lines. Franklin Roosevelt was nominated for president three times at conventions held at this facility. Identify this venue which hosted the 1932 NFL championship.

In 2011, the 1985 Chicago Bears finally got to go to the White House when they were invited by Barack Obama. The Bears' original invitation to the White House was revoked and postponed (but never rescheduled) because of what event?

This man is the most recent first round draft pick by the Bears to be inducted in to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. This defensive end was named to 6 All-Madden Teams, including the 10th Anniversary Team. This man was moved from D.Tackle to D. End to make room for William "The Refrigerator" Perry in 1985, and would have the rare honor of being a Pro-Bowl alternate at both positions in 1986. Identify this University of Akansas alum who anchored the Bears defensive line in the 1980s.

The 1934 NFL Championship game ranks among the more unusual in history, as the Bears and their 18 game winning streak fell to the host NY (football) Giants. The Bears had a 13-3 lead at the end of the third quarter when the Giants struck for 27 unanswered points in the 4th quarter. The Giants sudden turn of luck was not so much miraculous even if it was the result of a late arriving gift from Brother Jasper of Mahattan College. What items arrived after halftime for the Giants, allowing them to suddenly take a huge advantage over the Bears and win the game?

Super Bowl XX ended with many fans wondering if the other team had even shown up ... in fact the Patriots had shown up, though that was a surprise in itself as they were a wildcard team that year. The heavy favorite to represent the AFC in Super Bowl XX was this team whom the Patriots had beaten in the AFC championship game. Identify this team which was the only team to beat the Bears in that fabled 1985-86 campaign.

The Bears innovated the use of this largely obsolete offensive alignment to the point that its use became synonymous with "Bear's offense" in the early days of the team. Identify this pre-snap offensive alignment which fits into the BLANK in the following lyrics:

Bear down, Chicago Bears, make every play clear the way to victory;

Bear down, Chicago Bears, put up a fight with a might so fearlessly.

We'll never forget the way you thrilled the nation with your BLANK.
