Starting a series of articles on greatest games in Bears history...
Hello to all,
For those of you who have been members of this message board throughout the course of its existence, you know that I have written articles chronicling Bears players both past and present as a Staff Writer on the old "DaBearz.com" site as well as historical pieces such as my "famous"/"infamous" works titled "Championships Missed: The Lost Years." Now that I have some free time to pursue a new task at hand, I want to begin working on a new series of Bears historical articles dealing with the greatest games in the history of one of the NFL's truly iconic franchises. I have an idea of at least six games I would like to write about - the 1933 NFL Championship Game where Red Grange makes the game saving tackle with ten seconds left in the game to preserve the Bears' second consecutive NFL Championship against the New York Giants; the 1940 NFL Championship Game, where the Bears set an NFL record that still stands today by defeating the Washington Redskins 73-0, the most points and largest margin of victory ever posted in league history; the 1963 NFL Championship Game, where the Bears upset the heavily favored New York Giants 14-10 on the strength of five interceptions and the total mauling of Giants quarterback Y.A. Tittle; the 1965 regular season game versus the San Francisco 49ers, which the Bears won 61-10 thanks to running back rookie sensation Gale Sayers scoring six touchdowns that Sunday; the 1988 NFC Divisional Playoff, otherwise known as the "Fog Bowl," which the Mike Ditka-coached Bears won 20-12 over former Bear defensive coordinator Buddy Ryan and the Philadelphia Eagles; and the 2006 regular season game on Monday Night Football versus the Arizona Cardinals, where despite Rex Grossman's turnovers, the Bears showed Dennis Green and the Cards just who we really were - a lean, mean, ass kicking machine on defense and special teams.
If there are other games that anyone finds interesting and would like to suggest to me so I can research and write about it, feel free to do so.
