Where did they come from these 85 Bears? Where did they go? They were no dynasty, yet no one could call them a fluke team either. They didn't win Super Bowl XX because all the good teams got eliminated early in the playoffs. No sir. They kicked ass and took no prisoners right up to trophy presentation time. Everyone knew they were going to win it all. Everyone. As a kid and a Patriots fan even I knew it. But most especially they knew it. They had that look about them that said: "I'm going to take your lunch money and there isn't a damn thing you can do about it". They had a (not-so) secret weapon they used in short yardage situations near the goal line called "The Fridge". They had a quaterback who was born with a self-satisfied smirk on his face. But most of all they had defense. Man did they have defense.

They went 15-1 in the regular season and then steamrolled their way through the playoffs, outscoring their opponents 91-10 in the process. In the Super Bowl, with the trophy so close they could almost touch it, they didn't wilt under pressure and instead destroyed what had been a gritty, overachieving Patriots team 46-10. It wasn't nearly as close as the final score indicated either.

Were they the best team ever? You could make a case for it. And, due to the fact that they won "only" one Super Bowl as a team you could make a case against it. I know there are some out there that would argue that the '72 Dolphins were a better team, but these people have obviously been sitting out in the Miami sun too long.
