Overview

This book is the story of one of the greatest football teams in the history of the NFL: the '85 Bears. They were, for a brief, magical moment, a band of eccentrics who went from nobodies to rock stars and cult figures—they took America on a wild ride in the middle of one of the wildest times in history. The Rise and Self-Destruction of the Greatest Football Team in History reveals all the stories from that year, like how Walter Payton ended up hiding in a storage closet and why the team collapsed under the weight of its own greatness.
