George Halas


"Local kid does good."

If you're following NFL teams in the Midwest, that's not a headline you're too likely to see.


The Bears were saddled for a very long time with the cliché image of cheapness, maybe dating back to Mike Ditka describing George Halas as throwing nickels around like manhole


There might never be a more iconic figure in Bears history than Mike Ditka, and on a blistery December evening, the McCaskey family made sure there will never be another No.


Brian Urlacher can only look on as the Bears go through the final stages of the 2012 season without him.


It isnt quite Mike Ditka vs. Forrest Gregg or George Halas vs.
