Wondering about a player, a past game or another issue involving the Bears? Senior writer Larry Mayer answers a variety of email questions from fans on ChicagoBears.com.
When was the last time the Bears had three different quarterbacks win games in the same season?
Jay Cutler (1-4), Brian Hoyer (1-4) and Matt Barkley (1-1) have accomplished the feat this year for the first time since 2007 when Rex Grossman (2-5), Kyle Orton (2-1) and Brian Griese (3-3) did it. Three different Bears quarterbacks have won games in the same season 11 times since 1961, including a stretch of four times in six years from 1999-2004. Since the NFL expanded its schedule to 16 games in 1978, the only Bears quarterbacks to start all 16 games have been Vince Evans (6-10 in 1981), Jim Harbaugh (11-5 in 1991), Erik Kramer (9-7 in 1995), Grossman (13-3 in 2006) and Cutler (7-9 in 2009).
Who and when was the last time a Bears player recorded a safety?
Last Sunday Leonard Floyd became the first Bears player to produce a safety since Oct. 16, 2011 when Stephen Paea sacked Donovan McNabb in the end zone in a 39-10 win over the Vikings at Soldier Field.
With Jay Cutler going on injured reserve, who will fill his roster spot?
North Pole, Alaska
The Bears filled the roster spot that belonged to Jay Cutler by signing veteran cornerback Johnthan Banks, a four-year NFL veteran who has played with the Buccaneers and Lions. With Kyle Fuller and Deiondre Hall still recovering from injuries, the Bears wanted to add a veteran with some length at the position.
