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.

“You can’t play for the number one pick,” Covert said. “You got to win football games. You got to see progress. I want to see the Bears have progress every week. I don’t want to see them lose every game so they can get the number one pick.”

“That’s just not the Bears way of doing things,” McKinnon said. “Traditionally, that’s not who we are.”
