Chicago Bears: Caleb Hanie (2011)
Caleb Hanie’s four starts in 2011 was symbolic of the Bears’ season that year overall. The team that had appeared in the NFC Championship game one year prior finished with an 8-8 record.
Hanie provided a big assist to the Bears’ mediocrity, going 0-4 in his four starts in place of the injured Jay Cutler, completing only 50% of his passes for less than 154 yards passing per game; don’t forget the three touchdowns and nine interceptions in four starts, either.
Hanie spent one more year after that in the NFL (riding the pine in Denver), before he was officially out of the NFL for good.
