Chicago Bears Playoff Details
The Chicago Bears are a historic NFL franchise. One of only two teams to exist since the NFL’s founding, the Bears amassed eight championships before the Super Bowl even existed. With notable players like Dick Butkus, Mike Ditka, and Walter Payton, the invention of the T-Formation, and playoff eras in the 1980’s and 2000’s; and a Super Bowl championship in 1985, the “Monsters of the Midway” are synonymous with football, and the NFL playoffs.
Despite their legacy, the post AFL-NFL merger Bears struggled. However, the franchise found solace in running back Walter Payton, who helped the Bears to playoff appearances in 1977 -- his MVP season -- and 1979. Payton would go on to smash records for the franchise.
Two coaches defined the 20th Century Bears: George Halas, who coached from 1921-1963, and “Iron Mike” Ditka. A former Bears tight end, Ditka’s hiring kickstarted the franchise’s golden age. In 1984, two years after his hiring, the Ditka Bears reached the NFC Championship. However, the Bears were outmatched, suffering an ugly shut out to the San Francisco 49ers 23-0. The Niners went on to win the Super Bowl.
In 1985, the Bears were eager to bounce back. Behind a league-leading defense centered around future Hall of Fame Linebacker Mike Singletary, the Bears posted a dominant 15-1 regular season with confidence. Despite losing to the Miami Dolphins the same day, the Bears recorded the “Super Bowl Shuffle” at the crest of the regular season, a rap song confidently eyeing the prize. Their success continued in the postseason, where they shut out the New York Giants (21-0) and Los Angeles Rams (24-0) to make it to Super Bowl XX. Defensive dominance prevailed. The Bears virtually erased the New England Patriots’ running game, countering with two rushing touchdowns from legendary QB Jim McMahon to secure a 46-10 victory.
The Bears won the NFC Divisional round again in 1986, 1987, 1988, and 1990 but never made the Super Bowl again under Ditka. The Bears followed with a quiet decade. 2001 proved an unlikely flash of the Bears-of-yore, once again relying on stout defense (see: Pro-Bowl linebacker Brian Urlacher) for a 11-5 record and NFC divisional appearance. The Bears repeated their 11-5 record and divisional loss in 2005.Enter the 2006 season. The Bears were yet again near the top of the league, posting a 13-3 record and earning a Super Bowl berth, where they lost to the Peyton Manning / Tony Dungy Indianapolis Colts 29-17. The Bears were shut out from their third Super Bowl in 2010 after a tough loss to decades-long rival Green Bay Packers.
One of the league’s oldest teams, the Bears have had NFL playoff success in many decades over the years, and have established themselves as consistent playoff contenders.
