Best Answer

The Decatur Staleys moved to Chicago after the first season. The were called the Chicago Staleys the followong year. The Changes their name to the Bears before the third year of the league. They were named the Bears by Founder George Halas, since they signed a lease to play their games at Wrigley Field, home of the Cubs. Halas figured that since it was the home of the Cubs and football players were bigger, he would use the name Bears. The Arizona Cardinals are the other team that came from Chicago. They moved to St. Louis in the late 50's/early 60's. The Bears and the Cardinals are the only franchises still in the league that began play when the league was formed and have stayed in the league since it's inception.
