What Number Should The Chicago Bears New QB Wear This Season?
The new quarterback for the Chicago Bears should pick which numbered jersey to sport this season.
The Bears made a big move this off season. They signed a new quarterback. His name is Nick Foles. The new signal caller has a very important decision to make before the season starts. What number is he going to wear?
It could make or break his whole year or even his career with the team. He definitely doesn't want to chose the wrong one. I believe it could be bad luck.
Luckily, sportsmockery.com, has gone through the whole scenario.
"Foles has worn four different numbers in his NFL career. Each with different teams. Each with different legacies. Will he turn back to a familiar digit or try something new altogether?"
Here are his former numbers.
#4 - "Foles wore this for a season with the Kansas City Chiefs back in 2016. The most successful player to ever wear it for the Bears was Jim Harbaugh. Steve Fuller also wore it. Then there was Steve Walsh. It was also the number of Brad Maynard, arguably their most successful punter in team history."
#5 - "This is probably a number Foles would prefer to forget, having worn it during his ugly stint with the St. Louis Rams in 2015. Lucky for him this option won’t be on the table anyway. The Bears retired the number five as a tribute to former running back George McAfee."
#7 - "Another number that Foles didn’t exactly get much good fortune out of. His year in Jacksonville ended in disaster with an 0-4 record and broken shoulder. Again, lucky for him this isn’t an option anyway. The Bears retired the number seven following the death of George Halas. Bob Avellini was the last player to wear it. So that’s probably a good thing in terms of tempting the football fates."
#9 - "Nick Foles had his greatest career successes wearing number nine, going to a Pro Bowl and winning a championship in Philadelphia. He chose to leave that number behind, saying that it “pertains to that city.” He might want to reconsider that decision. The number nine has enjoyed quite a bit of success in Chicago. Robbie Gould became the greatest kicker in team history wearing it. Jim McMahon and Billy Wade both won championships wearing it. Even Shane Matthews found a bit of magic with it in 2001."
Maybe, he should go with a new one.
#6 - "Based on team history, his best bet is to go with #6. Kevin Butler wore during his long, successful run with the team in the ’80s and ’90s. Then Jay Cutler took it over and, love him or hate him, set most of the Bears’ franchise passing records. It was also worn by Don Kindt back in the 1950s where he made the Pro Bowl as a safety."
#8 - "Avoid at all costs. Looks at this horrible Bear history... Vince Evans, Mike Glennon, Rex Grossman, and Cade McNown."
In my opinion, I like single digit numbers for quarterbacks. There's no history with the number 3 for him or the Bears. It just so happened to be Dale's number. If you asked Dale who, then you just don't get it.
What jersey number do you think he should wear?
