2013 is coming to a close and it’s time to look back on the year that was. It’s been a bitter ending after losing the last two weeks with a chance to win the division. Instead, the Bears will be watching the playoffs from the comfort of their couches just like the rest of us. But 2013 has been a very eventful year which ushered in some major changes and had a lot of major story lines that we’ve followed. 2012 ended with a bang, as Phil Emery and the Bears fired Lovie Smith on New Year’s Eve and set the Bears on a new course
Here are my Top 10 Chicago Bears stories on 2013:
10. Mike Ditka’s #89 retired
The Bears finally honored former player and head coach Mike Ditka with a halftime ceremony on a frigid Monday night in a game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Next time, couldn’t they just schedule the game for September???
