The Best Chicago Bears Of All Time By Jersey Number: #00-9

6082

#5-George McAfee

Tenure: 1940-1941, 1945-1950



If you’re wondering why there’s a break in his service time for the Bears, try to remember what was happening in the world at that time. McAfee served in the U.S. Navy in World War II, but outside of that during the 40s, he was a four-time NFL champion, a first-team All-Pro, and was named to the all-decade team. He was later named to the 75th Anniversary All-Time team. Known as one of the most versatile players of his day, and maybe of all time, McAfee spent that All-Pro season of 1941 scoring touchdowns with all sorts of variety. He scored six rushing, three receiving, one by kick return, one by punt return, and another by taking an interception to the house…and that was in an 11-game season. His #5 is retired.
