NFL sources have confirmed to me today that the 1985 Chicago Bears have been offered the opportunity to be honored at the White House by President Barack Obama on Oct. 7 in a ceremony to honor the Super Bowl XX champions.

The team, which is considered by many to be the greatest team in NFL history, was never honored at the White House following their victory and the honor comes nearly 26 years after they completed a historic season by crushing the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl.

The Bears never visited the White House for the traditional celebration, as the Space Shuttle Challenger exploded two days after their Super Bowl triumph, killing its crew.

Bears quarterback Jim McMahon did visit the White House when he was a member of the Super Bowl winning 1996 Green Bay Packers and he wore his 1985 Bears No. 9 jersey on the visit.

Most of the members of the team and some members of the coaching staff and front office are expected to attend the ceremony but a final list of attendees has not yet been confirmed.
