Here's some major news for Chicago Bears fans.

The Chicago Bears were the talk of the football world after they essentially won the NFL draft by taking superstar quarterback Caleb Williams and wide receiver Rome Odunze in the first round.

With Williams and Odunze in tow and an improved roster, the Bears are just months away from taking the field.

There will undoubtedly be some ups and downs this season, but all eyes will be on their two stud picks and new additions like D'Andre Swift and Keenan Allen.


How will the Bears look when they travel to the West Coast to take on the NFC champion San Francisco 49ers or the team with another young superstar quarterback, Houston Texans?

I circled both games on the schedule, along with home and road matchups against their NFC North foes, the Detroit Lions, Minnesota Vikings, and Green Bay Packers.

How did the Bears become the "Bears?" Take a look at the history of the beloved and every other team's name history below.

LOOK: The story behind every NFL team name

Stacker delved into the story behind every NFL football team name. Overall team records, also included, are reflective of NFL regular-season games. There are some football teams with well-known nicknames—the Jets, for instance, are often referred to as Gang Green—but we also divulge how some teams’ official names are sparingly used (the Jets’ neighbors, the Giants, are actually known as the New York Football Giants). Sometimes a team name can tell you a lot about local history: The Vikings of Minnesota draw upon the area’s strong ties to Scandinavia, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are dripping in local legend related to Florida’s pirate past.

Let’s kick off the countdown with the folks who earned their nickname by buying boxes of used team jerseys.
