Around these parts there's a lot of talk about the 2012 Bears defense being better than the 1985 Bears defense. I say BS!!
Here's a comparison after 8 games of both teams.
1985 Bears 114
2012 Bears 120
1985 Bears 2445
2012 Bears 2551
For the 1985 Bears it gets better the 2nd half of the season. With a total of 84 points against for the last 8 games of the season with two shutouts and only 10 points given up in three playoff games including a 21-0 shutout of the New York Giants in the divisional game and a 24-0 shutout of the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC championship game.
Then a 46-10 rout of the Patriots in the super bowl and a 18-1 final record for 1985!!
Lets see if the 2012 Bears can keep up....
I certainly hope so.
