NFL – ESPN 1985 Monday Night Match – Bears VS Dolphins


The 1985 NFL Season was a magic year for the Chicago Bears…..for this was the year that Coach Iron Mike Ditka led his team to the ONLY Super Bowl victory in the storied history of The Monsters of the Midway….now Da Bears did win 8 NFL Championship prior to Super Bowl I….but my gosh Bears, it has been 50 years and ONLY ONE TITLE….that is almost Cub-like….so, what is it with the Chicago professional sports franchises…..I mean, if Chicago fans didn’t have Michael Jordan or Patrick Kane / Marian Hossa / Johnathon Teows….you would be dead in the water.

However, 1985 was magical….as a bunch of “wild maverick football players” (McMahon, Gault, Payton, McMichael, Hampton, Dent, Perry et al) came together under the tutelage of a hard-nosed Coach who knew how to mold these wild horses into a Super Bowl Champion team…..as the same “group of crazies”  also pulled off The Super Bowl Shuffle….the first really popular rapp song to become hugely popular in America……long before the gangsters started ruling the stage.

This particular Super Bowl year match-up with Coach Don Shula’s Miami Dolphins provides the viewer with another classic NFL confrontation….two powerhouse teams with powerhouse coaches from the 1980’s…..playing a game of football that is unrecognizable in the 2015 season….for in this lil ole Chiweenie Sportsphiles opinion….the NFL had not yet become “politically correct” than the game of today…..it was smash mouth of the highest order with an extra dose of crazy…..and that is why the Motley Crew known as the Chicago Bears football team….was able to drive their will to the Super Bowl and win.
