    The '63 NFL Champion Bears was a great team loaded with talent. I do feel bad for how so many of these guys have had tough lives after football.

    I could of sworn Johnny left the Chicago area. It's interesting how he didn't have the money to furnish his home in Winnetka. My question, why didn't he find a more cheaper suburb?

    Anyway.

    This was my first year as a Bear fan. I was ten years old. Thanks Dad(RIP)! My dad died in January of 1985, he never got to see the Bears win their first Super Bowl.

    You I've wondered this for sometime.

    Considering how low scoring the game was, I wonder if the cold weather might of had something to do with it?

    Sure football has always been a cold weather sport but this was cold.

    The "63" Bears were similar to the "85" Bears, dominant defense and an adequate offense. George Allen was the defensive coordinator and he was an innovator much like Buddy Ryan was in "85."Actually the "85" Bears had a pretty decent offense. But they chose the ball control style of offense which although effective is a lot less exciting than an offense that likes to air it out. Look at the running backs, you'd be a fool not to use Walter Payton and Matt Suhey.
