about

The 73-0 NFL championship victory of the Chicago Bears over the Washington Redskins in December of 1940 was the most one sided game in the history. In this book readers will come to know the personalities, the personal history, and the personal commentary of the principles highlighted through contemporary and historical accounts. A dozen individuals who later were chosen for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, OH were involved in the game as owners, coaches, and players. Many names still familiar today like George Halas, George Preston, Sid Luckman, and Slinging Sammy Baugh are front and center. Red Barber called the action that day as the drama unfolded. Game preparation, the game, and its aftermath are all revealed and put into context with the era. This book concludes with a telling of what happens to the team and the key players in the years that followed.
