"We are very excited to receive this award from the league," said Slaughter GM Alan Perkins in a release. "It's easy to love this team with guys like Jarrett Payton, Jim McMahon and Steve McMichael leading the way. Chicago has a tremendous love for football and it showed with the support we received all year from the greatest fans in the country."
