1943 NFL SEASON : Encyclopedia Entry (467 words)
The 1943 NFL season was the 24th regular season of the National Football League.
The Philadelphia Eagles and the Pittsburgh Steelers merged for this one season.
The season ended when the Chicago Bears defeated the Washington Redskins, 41-21, in the NFL Championship Game played the day after Christmas (the first time in NFL history that a playoff game was played so late in the year).
Chicago Bears - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (844 words)
Halas liked the bright orange-and-blue colors of his alma mater, the University of Illinois, and the Bears adopted those colors as their own, albeit in a darker shade of each (the blue is a Navy Blue, and the orange is Pantone 1665, similar to burnt orange).
The NFL took that action as a consequence of the Bears' aggressive signing of famous U of I player Red Grange, almost literally as he walked out the door of Memorial Stadium following his final game as a collegian.
The Bears have won 9 league championships, including Super Bowl XX after the 1985 season in which they dominated the NFL with their then-revolutionary 46 defense and a cast of characters that recorded the novelty rap song "The Super Bowl Shuffle".
