Monsters free pdf The gripping account of a once-in-a-lifetime football team and their lone championship season

Payton. Hampton. McMahon. Ditka. Even the casual football fan recognizes these names, the pillars of the 1985 Chicago Bears. Walter "Sweetness" Payton, the fleet-footed running back. Mike Singletary, the hard-charging middle linebacker. Jim McMahon, the punky quarterback, changing plays on the fly. And Mike Ditka, the hotheaded, mustachioed head coach.
They were a scrappy team: they played rough- they had heart- they recorded "The Super Bowl Shuffle." In the winter of 1985, they were the team Chicago needed--a team to believe in and rally around: champions for a city all too accustomed to losing.
Rich Cohen was seventeen years old when the Bears won their first and only Super Bowl- he was in the Super Dome when they defeated the New England Patriots 46-10. In "Monsters," he breathlessly recounts the thrilling narrative of their championship season. It's a story filled with outsized characters and unbelievable-but-true anecdotes gleaned from extensive interviews with the players themselves. It's a story about fathers and sons, love and loyalty, hope and redemption, pain and joy. It's a story about football, in all its beauty and all its brutality--the uniquely American sport.
These are the 1985 Chicago Bears as only Rich Cohen could describe them. You'll never see the team, or the game, or your own childhood idols the same way ever again.
