We Are the Bears! : The Oral History of the Chicago Bears


By Richard Whittingham- Foreword by Mike Singletary- Introduction by John Mullin

Ever since the Chicago Bears landed in Wrigley Field in 1921, the team has become part of the identity of all Chicagoans. After all, the Bears became the charter member of the NFL in 1920 under Papa Bear George Halas, who led the team to the first official NFL championship game, played in 1933 at Wrigley. Whether you’re a fan of the 1940-1941 “Monsters of the Midway” era or the renowned ’85 team, there is no denying that the Bears have a unique history. 

 

We Are the Bears! : The Oral History of the Chicago Bears (Triumph Books, September 2014) by veteran sports writer Richard Whittingham reveals the Bears’ most inspiring moments and the greatest successes – plus some hilarious tales from the locker room. With a foreword by legendary middle linebacker Mike Singletary and an introduction by Bears Insider John Mullin, this book offers personal stories told by and about admired players and coaches throughout Bears history. While flipping through the pages, you’ll find recollections including:

 

  • Firsthand accounts from players who played under George Halas, one of the toughest coaches in the NFL
  • Super Bowl XX players Jim McMahon, Gary Fencik and Mike Singletary all reminisce about the remarkable 1985 Super Bowl victory
  • Mike Ditka recalls the 1963 preseason game against the Giants as well as the game against the Bears’ longtime rival, the Green Bay Packers
  • Johnny Morris remembers Ditka and Halas’ hot-blooded relationship… including when Ditka said something under his breath in the locker room and Coach Halas caught him in the act

 

Perfect for the die-hard Bears fan, We Are the Bears! offers a glimpse into the dynamic history of one of the most successful football dynasties in the world and shows what it truly means to be a fan of “Da Bears.”

 

About the Author:

Richard Whittingham authored more than 30 books, most of them on football, including the award-winning What a Game They Played and definitive histories of the Chicago Bears, the Washington Redskins, and the Dallas Cowboys.
