The Chicago Bears have a long and storied tradition. In fact, they have the most Hall of Fame players enshrined in Canton, and the most retired jersey numbers.
The Bears are a charter member of the NFL. "Papa Bear" George Halas started the league, and his name is on the NFC Championship award.
Recognizing that, ranking the greatest Bears of all time is a daunting task.
For one thing, "Da Bears" have more than 25 Hall of Fame players. So, how can this author include players that are not enshrined, yet are deserving of being included on this list?
Well, I'll tell you how—it's called having guts; something that Halas would have appreciated.
That said, I am going to give you my list and yes, it will include a couple of players at the expense of Hall of Famers.
But hey, I call 'em as I see 'em. So here we go.
