Kordell Stewart was a major miss by the Chicago Bears

Number 1. Kordell Stewart, QB

Kordell Stewart may not have been the most efficient passing QB ever, but he was certainly electric with the ball in his hands. Stewart was one of the most dynamic players of the mid to late 90s.

He was drafted in the second round of the 1995 draft by the Steelers. He didn’t become a starter until 1997, where he helped Pittsburgh achieve an 11-5 record. As I said above, Kordell was rather inconsistent throwing the ball and after an injury-plagued 2002, the Bears brought him in to start in 2003.

Other than a random 13-3 year in 2001, the early 2000s were pretty rough for Bears fans. In 2002, 2003, and 2004 the Chicago Bears failed to finish above .500 in any of these years. The offense, in particular, was pretty awful during these times.

Stewart was the Week 1 starter for Chicago and didn’t look good at any point of the season. He was only the starter for seven games and appeared in nine total. He went 2-5 as the starter, with seven touchdowns, and 12 interceptions.

I can understand what the Bears were trying to do because they were desperate for a quality starting QB around this time period. Unfortunately, Kordell Stewart ended up as nothing but a failed experiment in his one season with the Bears.
