Quarterbacks, linemen and ball carriers for 17 years feared a looming Doug Atkins. He played for the Bears from 1955 to 1969 and was a key figure in one of football's most potent defenses, especially the 1963 NFL title season when the defenses allowed a league-low average of 10 points per game. Atkins played on eight Pro Bowl teams and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1982.
