The 1985 Chicago Bears were larger than life. They had in-your-face personalities. They boasted Hall of Fame-caliber
players. But most importantly, the whole was greater than the sum of its parts. Chicago dominated opponents like few
The Bears offense was a reflection of their hard-nosed head coach, Mike Ditka. First and foremost, Ditka liked to
establish the run, with Walter Payton rushing for 1,551 yards on 324 carries. Still, the coach could be creative, too.
He occasionally used a 300-pound rookie named William "Refrigerator" Perry at the goal line, to the delight of teammates
and fans alike.
Perry was also a part of Chicago's "46 Defense", which is widely considered the best in league history. The scheme --
designed by defensive coordinator Buddy Ryan -- so overwhelmed opponents a world title seemed inevitable. And it was.
Chicago lost just one game prior to reaching Super Bowl XX, where it whipped the New England Patriots for their first
NFL championship since 1963.
