Season Overview

The 1930 Chicago Bears season was their 11th regular season completed in the National Football League. The club posted a 9–4–1 record under first year head coach Ralph Jones. Jones, a former player, led the team to recover from its ninth place finish to a respectable third place finish. The season started badly with a 1–2–1 record over the first four games, the only win coming against the hapless Minneapolis Redjackets. After splitting games five and six, the Bears got their winning ways back, finishing the season with 5 straight wins and 7 wins in their last 8 games. The only loss those last 8 games was to eventual champion Green Bay. The secret to the Bears' success was new talent in the backfield. All-American and rookie Bronko Nagurski starred at fullback while living legend Red Grange starred at tailback. These two future hall of famers combined for 13 touchdowns overall. Luke Johnsos, in his second year, also starred at end. The makings of future championships were in place.
