The Atlanta Falcons will have a crowd in their stadium with a group of men dressed as former Bears coach Mike Ditka.
The Atlanta Falcons are hosting the Chicago Bears for Week 11, and they will have one of the most diverse crowds as an entire bachelor party dressed as Mike Ditka shows up to cheer on the Bears.
There’s no denying that loyalty runs deep for NFL fans, and the Bears could use all the support they can get away from home. Although neither Chicago nor Atlanta are doing very well this season, the Falcons have the upper hand in this matchup.
The Falcons are currently 4-6 and sit in second place in the NFC South standings, just below the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Chicago, on the other hand, sits dead last in the NFC North going 3-7. The Falcons have home-field advantage, but the Bears have Justin Fields, and now they have a bachelor party that emulates the franchise’s former head coach.
At the very least, it will bring positive energy to the Bears as Ditka had a significant role in Chicago.
Former Bears coach Mike Ditka had a notable career
Ditka had such a prolific career that it inducted him into the Hall of Fame in 1988, and he remains one of the greatest in franchise history.

He was No. 1 draft pick of Chicago back in 1961, and quickly proved his worth as a first baseman.
Over his 12-season career, he was named to five Pro Bowls and completed 427 receptions and 43 touchdowns over 5,812 yards. According to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, he ranked second among all tight ends at the time of his retirement after the 1972 season.
Although he was later traded from the Bears and continued with the Dallas Cowboys to help them win the Super Bowl, he returned to Chicago as a coach in 1982 and led them to many championships. He also helped Chicago win the Super Bowl during the 1985-86 season, still the only Super Bowl win in franchise history.
It’s understandable why every bachelor party would want to dress up as a famous player and go to a Bears game doing so.
