When George S. Halas was asked to rebuild the Staley Company's football club in Decatur, Illinois in 1920, no one could have imagined that his efforts would forever change Sunday afternoons in America. Halas helped found the National Football League, and with it the Chicago Bears, the most storied franchise in the league's history. From the Galloping Ghost, to the Monsters of the Midway, to that indomitable "46" defense--"the Grabowskis," as the coach named them--Bears teams and players have made such an impact on the "city of big shoulders" that Chicago will be forever known as a "Bears town."
