2003: Kordell Stewart (WORST)
Why He’s here: This season came toward the back end of Slash’s career when he couldn’t produce much on a football field anymore. In fact, he never threw another pass in the NFL after this season. It was also one of his least productive seasons as a runner. The interception rate of 4.8% that Stewart posted in 2003 is a big reason why he’s earned the distinction of worst quarterback in the NFL that season. It also doesn’t help that he lost his job to Chris Chandler, became the starter again when Chandler struggled, only to lose it again to then-rookie Rex Grossman once the Bears were out of the playoff picture.
Team Success: Despite such poor quarterback play from Stewart and others in 2003, the Bears weren’t terrible, ultimately finishing 7-9, albeit three games out of a playoff spot.
By the Numbers: Completed 126 of 251 passes (50.2%) for 1,418 yards with seven touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
