The 1985 Bears are one of the best teams in NFL history and it showed in Super Bowl XX when they smacked the Patriots like they stole something. Yet, even in a performance as dominant as that one, there was still some tomfoolery going on in the play calling. The Bears lined up defensive lineman William “The Refrigerator” Perry in the backfield near the goal line and pitched it to him so he could throw a pass into the end zone. Needless to say, it didn’t turn out so great, Perry was sacked. Granted they had a lot more success with Perry in the backfield that season and the mishap with the big man’s QB skills didn’t cost them as they went on to win 46-10.

And then there was play when Mike Ditka handed off the The Fridge for a TD instead of letting longtime Bears great Walter Payton, playing in his first-and-only Super Bowl, get into the end zone.
