2009: A look back at the year in Windy City Gridiron

Though the Bears year may have started off with the bang of the dual acquiring of Jay Cutler and Orlando Pace, only to fizzle later, here at Windy City Gridiron it was anything but slow. We started the year crossing the 1,000,000 visitors threshold and we ended by crossing the 2,000,000 mark.

So thanks to all writers, editors, readers, posters, contributors, distant relatives, pets, players no longer on the team, and all of the 28 or so QBs before Jay Sizzle for making this a great year. 

A special thanks to Dane, who stepped in to help me reign in all the loose ends and get this site going in a new direction.

I thought it would be fitting to let you in on some of the numbers.  I am including last year's figures as a comparision, so head below the jump to see if you made any lists.

I am purposely removing the names of any writers from these lists, so some non-WCG employed people can hold the number #1 spots.
