When it comes to Chicago Bears history, the team is filled with Hall of Famers and champions. It might be hard to believe since the Bears have been collectively playing poorly over the last 20-plus years, but the Chicago Bears have the most (26) players inducted into the Hall of Fame. Even since the 2000s, the team has found plenty of individual success stories despite not finding great team success.
I decided to create my own Mount Rushmore filled with only Chicago Bears players. However, I had way too many names in mind. As you know, to have a Mount Rushmore there can only be four. The problem is, I found myself wanting to list players I have actually seen live and ignore history. I mean, who cares about a quarterback who played in the 1940s?
Instead of going with the first four names that popped into my head, I decided to think this through, but also turn to my BearGogglesOn brethren. I asked everyone on the team to rattle off who they would place on their Mount Rushmore. After deliberating a bit, I have come up with who would make the ultimate Chicago Bears Mount Rushmore.
Now, before we begin, remember this is a collective Mount Rushmore and not just an individual’s preference. There really are no right or wrong answers to the question, but I know some people will scream, no way (or worse) on social media and claim to have a better four players. Well, that’s great, but it does not mean the next four names are “wrong”. Just relax, maybe grab a drink and instead of getting all feisty, let us debate who should be here, shall we?
