The Chicago Bears seem to be in the hunt for a new quarterback, or at least one who can compete with Mitchell Trubisky. Tom Brady has been rumored with nearly every team and Madden predicts how the Bears would finish with Brady.

As the offseason approaches, rumors continue to swirl. The Chicago Bears need a new quarterback. Not necessarily one to replace Mitchell Trubisky, but at least one to compete and push him more than the likes of Chase Daniel.

One of the hot quarterback names floating around the rumor mill is Tom Brady. It seems like Brady’s time in New England is coming to a close. He is hitting free agency and at least listening to offers before making a decision. Almost every team in the NFL would like to have Brady at quarterback. He is not the same guy he was a few years ago or during his prime, but he has proven age is only a number.

To have some fun with this, “Pick Six Podcast” decided to run simulations on Madden for Brady on every team in “NFL Madden 20”. This was just a fun way to measure the level of success Brady would bring to each team if he were under center as opposed to the team’s current quarterbacks.

Before we look at how the Chicago Bears finished, some of the interesting scenarios that need to be looked at are how the Patriots, 49ers, Saints, Packers, Chiefs and Ravens all failed to make the playoffs with Brady. Brady has been declining over the last two years, but to think all of these teams miss the playoffs with him under center is a bit of a head-scratcher.

The only team Brady won the playoffs with was the Philadelphia Eagles. This is surprising to me too as the Eagles wide receiver corps. might be worse than the Patriots. Brady does love his tight end though and Zach Ertz would be the perfect compliment to Brady’s game.

Now for the Chicago Bears. Brady had his best regular-season performance with the Chicago Bears. The team went 13-3. Brady threw for 4,800 yards and 47 touchdowns. Both of these performances would be single-season franchise records. Not just by a little bit either. The current records are held by Erik Kramer with 3,838 passing yards and 29 touchdowns. Unfortunately, the Bears lost in the NFC Championship game and did not win the Super Bowl.

If fans knew for sure the team would achieve these results, they would hit the accept/sign button immediately. Although just for fun, I could not imagine any fan would turn this down. Maybe I am wrong though. Let us know in the comments.
