2007 Passing Numbers

You'd think we had a functional offense or something.

Bears quarterbacks Brian Griese, Rex Grossman and Kyle Orton combined to throw for 3,701 gross passing yards and 3,362 net yards in 2007, the third highest totals in both categories in franchise history.

Four of the Bears' six highest net passing totals have come during Ron Turner's two stints as offensive coordinator (1993-96; 2005-07). The Bears set team passing records in 1999 with 4,352 gross yards and 4,136 net yards.

Brian Griese led the Bears in all passing categories in 2007 with 1,803 yards, 10 touchdowns and a 75.6 passer rating.
From Week 4 through the rest of the season, the Bears produced 25 completions of at least 25 yards, which tied for third most in the NFL behind only New England (31) and Green Bay (30).

Eight different receivers hauled in 25-plus-yard catches during that span. Griese led the team with 13 such pass plays during that stretch, while Grossman registered nine (10 total) and Orton had three.
