The Bears have been around for 93 years.
According to PRO-FOOTBALL REFERENCE, there have been 161 guys play quarterback for them.
Or at least throw the ball for them.
So that list includes non-qb guys like Walter Payton, Curtis Conway and Cade McNown.
But it also includes Hall of Famers like Sid Luckman and Bobby Layne and... that's it? Okay not alotta Bear HOF QBs.
Uh, so anyway, it took Jay Cutler just 5 years to break a bunch of Chicago's passing records.
And now Phil Emery has given him a shiny new 7 year contract, so he ought to own 'em all before he's done.
I know there's alot of angst over this decision, but even though he missed alot of 2013, the offense was shockingly good to watch.
It was the first year he had any kind of line in front of him.
The first year of Marc Trestman.
I've been a Bear Fan my whole life, so I had no idea what it was like to root for a team that would, you know, get the ball and then have one of those guys who lines up way out there on the edge take off and run around out there with the safeties until the quarterback does that thing where his arm moves forward real fast and he lets go of the ball, and then that guy who was out on the edge but is now running around, the ball lands in his hands.
And they do it on purpose, like it was planned that way the whole time.
After this season, it's not gonna be fair to go back to the normal way.
So here's hoping that Mr. Cutler's best years are yet to come, and Mr. Emery's got some cash and smarts enough to get some studs over on the other side of the ball.
The start of this post - the Bears have been around since the beginning of the NFL.
That's forever, right?
What team hasn't won a World Series in even longer than forever?
You know the answer.
This is what a man used to shave with the last time the Cubs won a World Series. (1908 razor from Rubylane.com but no longer on sale).
See this movie below?
It was shot in 1906, just 2 years before the last Championship Cubs team.
Read the comments - I guess this ran on 60 Minutes, and was actually filmed just days before the Great San Francisco earthquake. (Thanks Josh!)
