The roster for the 1985 Chicago Bears included Richard Dent, Shaun Gayle, William Perry, Jim McMahon, Walter Payton, Mike Singletary and Mike Ditka. It was a dream team for Chicago that ruled tv stations and the city!
“We are the Bears Shufflin’ Crew, shufflin’ on down, doin’ it for you. We’re so bad, we know we’re good. Blowing your mind like we knew we could.” — The Chicago Bears (Bears Shufflin’ Crew Lyrics)
The Chicago Bears’ 1985 season is known as one of the greatest NFL seasons of all time, and for good reason. The Bears won their first twelve consecutive games and were incredibly close to having a perfect season. Unfortunately, they lost game number thirteen to the Miami Dolphins. They also set several records during their Super Bowl victory, with an amazing total of 46 points and a 36 point margin of victory.
What Fans Have to Say
Fans’ enduring love for the ‘85 Bears can be seen in their reactions to a recent episode of ESPN’s docuseries “30 for 30” — one of thirty films to celebrate the network’s 30th anniversary. Fan Mark Mulder took to Twitter to express his enthusiasm, saying:
“Growing up in Chicago. ‘85 bears. Greatest 30 for 30 ever @ESPN Giving this old man goosebumps.”
