Best Answer

Yes. When the Decatur Staleys of the NFL moved to Chicago in 1921, they played their home games at Cubs Park (now known as Wrigley Field). George Halas renamed the team to Bears in 1922 as a tribute to the Cubs. Legend has it his reason for choosing Bears as the new nickname was that if Baseball players were Cubs, since football players were larger, football players were Bears.
