Good guy, great story.





And he outperformed Cutler at a sliver of the price.

Doesn't need the money anymore, but would be good if he wants it. Right now he's training his own sons.

He has the highest passer rating in team history. Cheers to our GOAT.

Also, better than Tom Brady's career QB rating. Aren't selective stats fun?

Dude would be a great QB coach/offensive assistant starting out.

For that one season (2013) he was phenomenal when he played. Started 5 games, completed 67% of his passes for 1800 yards, 13 touchdowns, 1 interception. Considering that outside of that season he only threw 55 passes for us, he really was that good for the Bears.

Nothing against Josh, but the Cowboys that season had one of the worst defenses ever, especially on the back end.

Josh was just solid, hard working, top backup, bridge QB guy. He worked his way better and made up for shortcomings with his physical skills with hard work and study.

Wish him the best.
