Todd Collins' 6.2 Passer Rating Fifth Worst Bears QB Performance Since 1960

Thanks to the Play Index at Pro Football Reference, here are the five Bears QB performances since 1960 with a rating lower than Todd Collins’ 6.2 today:

Jim McMahon, 6.1 vs. Vikings on 10/9/1983
Jack Concannon, 6.0 vs. Vikings on 12/5/1970
Jim Miller, 4.9 vs. Dolphins on 12/9/2002
Bob Avellini, 4.9 vs. Chargers on 12/4/1978

Bobby Douglass matched Collins’ 6.2 vs. the Broncos on 12/5/1971.

The Bears lost all five of those games. Amazingly enough, it appears they will win today despite Collins’ extremely poor performance.

UPDATE: The search I ran must have been flawed; there are about 20 such performances. However, today is only the third time the Bears have actually won with a QB with a passer rating this low.
