Intriguing-Blame it on Buddy
It is hard to believe that 20 years have passed since the Chicago Bears won the Super Bowl. I was too young to remember it happening. And I know the reason why they haven't been there since: Defensive cordnatior Buddy Ryan left after that season to become a head coach (he never won a playoff game another reason why he should of stayed in Chicago). I also believe that's the biggest mistake Michael McCaskey ever made in his years he inheirited the Bears from his famous grandfather (George Halas): Not re-signing Buddy Ryan. While my father has another theory: He blames it on 'Da Coach', Mike Ditka first fighting with Ryan then fighting with his quarterback Jim McMahon (after when Ryan left). When I read the author's introduction to this book the first thing that came to mind was the New York Mets the next year: (see 'The Bad Guys Won') Both teams were loaded with talent, the players became spoiled after winning a championship, and they both become symbols of the Greed-Is-Good, Reagan-era 80's. Case in point: Dwight Gooden got arrested again recently for driving drunk. Why? Because his body is still stuck in 1986! To close this up, I look back on the '85 Bears in anger like I do to the Bulls teams in the 90's because I say to myself, 'Damn, they should of won more championships.'Was this review helpful?
