Monsters The 1985 Chicago Bears and the wild heart of football

Rich Cohen

Book - 2013

For Cohen and millions of other fans, the 1985 Chicago Bears were more than a football team: they were the greatest football team ever, a gang of colorful nuts, dancing and pounding their way to victory. They won a Super Bowl and saved a city. Cohen tracked down the coaches and players from this iconic team and asked them everything he has always wanted to know: What's it like to win? Were you ever scared? How do you go on after you have lived your dream but life has not ended? The result i...s not merely about a team but of a city and a game: its history, its future, its fallen men, its immortal heroes.
