5. More Punts Than Passes
“When Clausen played for us against the Seahawks a couple of years ago, our team had more punts than he had completions,” a Bears fan revealed. “Our punter was punting so much, he got injured from overexertion.” Of course, he’s talking about the nightmare that was Jimmy Clausen. Clausen began his NFL career with the Panthers but ended up in Chicago after they waived him.
The game this fan referred to was in Week Three of 2015. It clearly illustrates the historic problem the Bears have in the QB position. Clausen was grim in that game because he was so out of his depth. Firstly, he completed just nine of 17 passes and threw just 48 passing yards. After this terrible display, he never started for the Bears again and joined the Ravens a few weeks later.
