The Bears may have made a change at head coach during the offseason, but where they stand among the best uniforms in sports remained status quo.

On Friday, Paul Lukas over at ESPN's Uni Watch unveiled his overall power rankings, with the Bears uniforms being named No. 2 in all of professional sports for the second straight year.

In 2012, the Bears were ranked one spot behind the Montreal Canadiens, who fell down two spots in Lukas' current rankings. 

The St. Louis Cardinals catapulted past the Bears and landed at No. 1, something Cubs fans won't be too pleased with.  

Lukas says the Bears didn't hurt their cause by moving the numbers to the shoulders and still "remain the cream of the NFL crop."

Uni Watch believes other teams should take a page out of the Bears book by sporting striped socks.

Throughout the years, the Bears are one of the only professional teams that haven't made a dramatic overhaul to their uniform. 

Here's a look at their uniforms throughout the years:

-"Papa Bear" George Halas poses in a Decatur Staleys jersey in 1921.

- Hall of Fame quarterback Sid Luckman is shown practicing in 1954.

- Legendary linebacker Dick Butkus before practice in 1966.

- Arguably the greatest running back of all-time, Walter Payton, runs past defenders in Super Bowl XX.

- Finally, Jay Cutler dons the current Bears jersey in the team's preseason victory over the Raiders.


Throughout the week, CSNChicago.com will be taking a look at where each local team ranks. Here's a look at the schedule:

Chicago Bulls - Tuesday, Aug. 27

Chicago Blackhawks - Wednesday, Aug. 28

Chicago Cubs - Thursday, Aug. 29

Chicago White Sox - Friday, Aug. 30
