Chicago Bears passing records: Jay Cutler surpasses Sid Luckman in touchdown passes

New, comments

Jay Cutler set Chicago Bears history on Monday night versus San Diego.

Jay Cutler hit an incredible milestone during Monday night's game versus the San Diego Chargers-- he became the all-time leader in touchdown passes in Chicago Bears history.

Cutler threw touchdown #138 to Martellus Bennett in the 2nd quarter of MNF, surpassing another all-time great quarterback, Sid Luckman.

Jay Cutler has set many passing records since being traded to Chicago before the 2009 season, and now is the franchise leader in:

- Passing TD's: 138

- Passing Yards

- Completions

- Completion %

He's accomplished all of this while changing offensive coordinators nearly every season he's been in Chicago, and with  significantly less-than-talented offensive lines.

Say what you will about Cutler, but he's statistically the best quarterback the Chicago Bears have ever had.

Cutler has one more year on his contract after 2015, and if the Bears bring him back, he'll likely set a couple more records along the way.

Congrats to Jay... And go Bears.
