Every week of the 2015 Chicago Bears season, Chicago Sun-Times Sports will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the 1985 Bears by speaking with players from the team including Jimbo Covert, Dan Hampton, Dennis McKinnon and Otis Wilson.

“A lot of teams felt that the best chance they had of beating the Bears was trying to hurt him,” McKinnon said.

McKinnon recounted times when McMahon would ignore Mike Ditka’s calls from the sideline and freelance with plays of his own.

“In the ’85 NFC Championship Game against the Rams, he had that bruise that he got on his butt falling down,” Covert said. “And it was ugly.”
