"Papa Bear is everything a sports book should be: Passionate, encyclopedic, utterly biased and filled with endearingly anachronistic phrases. . ."
--New York Times Book Review

Granted unprecedented access to George Halas’s former players, friends and associates, author Jeff Davis tells the incredible story of how one man grabbed an outlaw game by the throat, shook it up, and made it into the most popular spectator sport on the planet.

From the Back Cover:

" . . . Jeff Davis's ambitious reconstruction of the life and times of George Halas is probably the most thorough examination ever performed on the founding father of the Chicago Bears and all of pro football.”
--Chicago Tribune

Papa Bear is everything a sports book should be: passionate, encyclopedic, utterly biased, and filled with endearingly anachronistic phrases . . . ”
--New York Times Book Review

“With Papa Bear, Jeff Davis is the first writer to truly capture the larger-than-life saga of football's most epic figure, George Halas, in all his crackling, electrifying presence.”
--Peter Gent, former NFL player and author of North Dallas Forty

Featuring personal interviews with friends, NFL executives, sportswriters, rivals, and unforgettable players and coaches such as Sid Luckman, Dick Butkus, and Mike Ditka, Papa Bear sheds light on both the sinner and the saint who was George Halas. Author Jeff Davis delivers the full-fledged, no-holds-barred story of the mystery and the man who made pro football America's secular religion.

About the Author:

Jeff Davis is a lifelong Chicagoan and career journalist. He has covered network and local news and sports for more than three decades as a writer, television sports producer, and reporter. His work has earned numerous honors, including five Emmys. He lives in Evanston, Illinois.
