The Greatest Chicago Bears of All Time

List Criteria: Only Chicago Bears players

These are the greatest Bears of all-time. Since the NFL's inception, the Chicago Bears have been a vital part of the league's fabric. One of the classic football franchises (one of the two original NFL teams still in existence), the Bears are known for their punishing brand of black and blue football. The team has had some of the greatest players in football history wear the Dark Navy, Orange and White. When you think of great Chicago Bears, you generally think of defense, especially punishing linebackers. Dick Butkus, Mike Singletary, Brian Urlacher are all considered some of the best linebackers in NFL history and they've all been leaders of the Monsters of the Midway. 

While many consider the best players to play for the Bears to be defenders, one of the greatest offensive weapons played for the Bears. The running back position for the Bears is one of the most prestigious in the entire NFL. That's what happens when you have players like Walter Payton, Gale Sayers and Red Grange. 

The Bears have won nine championships in its illustrious history, which includes one Super Bowl berth. From that special 1985 team, you'll find many of the defensive stars on this list. They are considered one of the greatest defenses of all time, so you would expect them to be considered some of the best Bears players ever.
