 Member - Pro Football Hall of Fame
George Halas was associated with the Chicago Bears and the National Football League from their inception in 1920 until his death in 1983.
Although Halas coached his Bears for 40 seasons, he stepped away from the coaching ranks three times — 1930-1932, 1942-1945 (to serve in the military), and 1956-1957.
As a coach, Halas was first in many ways: the first to hold daily practice sessions, to utilize films of opponents' games for study, to schedule a barnstorming tour, and to have his team's games broadcast on radio.

 7 - George Halas - Chicago Bears
Yet, if the number honored greats were only 10, or even five, it is certain that George Halas would still be honored, for his contributions to the game as a player, as a coach, as a club owner and executive dwarf those of almost any other individual.
In as much as Halas himself was already a staunch Cubs fan, the name Bears was a natural for the football team that was to play at the Cubs' home park.
At age 73, Halas was still active as chairman of the board of the Bears, having just retired for the fourth time as head coach of the Chicago eleven.

 16 - George Musso - Chicago Bears
George also proved to be a team leader of unusual magnitude.
George, who had been a four-sport star-football, basketball, baseball, and track-all four years at Millikin College, played well enough in the East-West All-Star game in Chicago as a part of the 1933 Century of Progress Exposition to gain the attention of Halas.
Halas countered with a proposal that he would keep Musso on the squad at half-salary --$45 a game-while he tried to prove himself.

A biography of Halas is also a history of the Bears, and although Davis doesn't bog his account down with endless play-by-play game accounts, he does highlight the big moments in Halas' career as coach and owner.

 GEORGE S. "PAPA BEAR" HALAS SR.
For years it was said that George Halas and Dutch Sternaman, the Chicago Bears’ co-owners and co-coaches, always took opposite sides in every minor argument at league meetings but presented a united front whenever anything major was on the table.
Neither Halas nor Sternaman was willing to let the other take charge, and so, in the best tradition of Solomon, they resolved their differences by agreeing that neither would coach the team.
Halas and Sternaman chose Ralph Jones, the head man at Lake Forest (IL) Academy, as the Bears’ new coach.
