Greatest Chicago Bears Seasons: Clyde "Bulldog" Turner 1942

Clyde "Bulldog" Turner played center and linebacker for the Bears for 13 years, he's a member of the Pro Football Hall Of Fame, and his #66 is retired by Chicago.  In 1942 the Bears went an undefeated 11-0 in the regular season, but the 10-1 Washington Redskins tripped them up in the Championship Game 14-6.  At center, Turner paved the way for the league's best offense, and at linebacker he helped the Bears to the league's best defense.

There aren't a lot of full box scores floating around but I did find record of his two defensive touchdowns from 1942.  In a week three 41-14 shellacking of the cross town Cardinals, Turner had a 42 yard interception return for a TD, and in a week eight 38-7 smackdown of the Packers he returned a fumble 42 yards for a TD.

He had 8 interceptions on the season with a combined 96 return yards.  In 1942, he was named 1st team All NFL by the Associated Press, the International News Service, the New York Daily News, and the NFL.
