1985 Bears Coverage: Remember Chicago reversals

Every day of the 2015 Chicago Bears season, Chicago Sun-Times Sports will revisit its coverage 30 years ago during the 1985 Bears’ run to a Super Bowl title.

These are letters to the editor featuring comments and questions about the Bears and the baseball season.

Originally published Aug. 25, 1985

Take note, Bears, of the other successful Chicago teams. White Sox win their division by 20 games in ’83 – where were they in ’84?

Compare the Black Hawks in ’83 to ’84 and of course the Cubs of last year to this year. Same players, but completely different results.

Maybe these teams were reading about themselves too much, or complacent after signing their million dollar contracts, or instead of working hard to get in shape, they were too busy filming commercials or writing songs about themselves.

Why Wisconsin for the Bears?

Why do the Chicago Bears practice in Platteville, Wis.? Isn’t Illinois good enough?
