About this set: I would like to tell you how I came to the checklist for the players. In THE CHICAGO BEARS A 75-YEAR CELEBRATION by Richard Whittingham on pages 136-139 it lists the all-decade teams for the Bears from the '20's to the '80's. The book states the all-decade teams were decided by a poll of pro football historians, sportswriters and broadcasters, and other authorities on the history of the team. To cut down on the checklist I eliminated anyone that did not have at least one AP or pro-bowl appearance. I used the website to look up each player's post season accomplishments. For the decade of the '90's, I had to put that together myself, using the formula from the previous decades, be the best at your position for the decade and have at least one AP or pro-bowl appearance.
