Big fan of Chicago football? Then you'll have to check out this list of the best Chicago Bears quarterbacks ever! It includes every starting quarterback from throughout Chicago Bears history, including current quarterbacks and past ones. This roster contains many American football greats, players in the game with the highest ratings in the NFL. The QB is the leader of the offensive team, the one who often calls the plays. Although most teams use an offensive coordinator now, QBs still need to know the intricacies of the rules for trick plays and tactics. Vigorous training is a must—and don't forget that a quarterback is only as good as his receivers.

Featuring 2018-2019 Chicago Bears and some of the greatest NFL quarterbacks of all time, the best Bears QBs include Jim McMahon, Jim Harbaugh, Jay Cutler, and Sid Luckman, among many other greats.

Who are the best quarterbacks in Chicago Bears history? They're on this comprehensive list, along with all of the other sports stars who have had the honor of being the arm behind this beloved Illinois team. Here is every athlete who's ever held the illustrious position of Chicago Bears quarterback.
