Former NFL head coach Mike Martz isn't the only one who seems to have an issue with the Chicago Bears' track record, or lack thereof, in drafting and developing franchise quarterbacks.
Boomer Esiason recently had some strong words regarding Chicago's quarterback issues.
Esiason played 14 years in the NFL during the 1980s and 90s -- nine with the Cincinnati Bengals, three with the New York Jets, and one with the Arizona Cardinals before returning to the Bengals for a one-year stint.
He received four Pro-Bowl selections, one All-Pro team, and the NFL MVP award in 1988 on his way to throwing 37,920 yards and 247 touchdowns.
Esiason may have a point. In fact, during the 102-year history of the Bears, the franchise has had just nine Pro Bowl quarterbacks.
Here is the list:
Sid Luckman (1940-1942),
Johnny Lujack (1950, 1951)
Ed Brown (1955, 1956)
Mitchell Trubisky (2018)
and Jim McMahon (1985).
Hopefully, current Bears' QB Justin Fields can turn the tide around.
