Welcome back to our podcast series on Chicago Bears history!

Jeff Berckes is joined by lifelong Bears fan and historian Matt Winter as they talk about a decade that is near and dear to their hearts despite the fact it wasn’t very good - the 1990s. The 90s Bears featured the aging 80s defense giving away to a couple of young players that were fun to cheer for even if it didn’t result in a lot of wins.

We kick things off in the 1990s with a cocktail recipe of the day and recap the NFL and US history. We then dig into players like Mark Carrier, Donnell Woolford, Tom Waddle, Curtis Conway, and Trace Armstrong (check out Jeff’s Championship Belt Series Part 4!).

Finally, the guys will give answers to a number of fun categories. Who from the 1990s would you most want on the upcoming 2020 roster? Who from the modern Bears would have helped this squad the most? Who is their favorite player from the decade?

All that and more on this week’s Halas to Mack: Chicago Bears History by the Decade.

Do you have a question or a fun category you’d like to know the answer? Jeff and Matt are planning on recording a recap show at the end of the series to answer the best history-related questions we receive. Ask yours in the comments or find Jeff on Twitter @gridironborn.
