RICH COHEN'S SURPRISE HIT TALE OF A ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME FOOTBALL TEAM AND THEIR LONE CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON

Payton, Hampton, McMahon, and Ditka even the casual football fan recognizes these names, the pillars of the 1985 Chicago Bears: Walter "Sweetness" Payton, the fleet-footed running back; Dan Hampton, the hard-charging defensive tackle known as the "Danimal"; Jim McMahon, the punky quarterback, changing plays on the fly; and Mike Ditka, the hotheaded, mustachioed head coach.

In Monsters, Cohen breathlessly recounts the thrilling narrative of their 1985 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, and 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.
