Comcast Sportsnet Chicago is running a promo for its Bears postgame coverage, and flashes player cards and the years they played for Richard Dent (1983-1993, 95), Jerry Azumah (1999-2005) and Jim Miller (1999-2002).? Uh, sorry guys, Jim Miller was signed by the Bears for the final four games of the 1998 season.? So your card for Miller should read 1998-2002.
Miller was actually on the verge of being cut in 1999′s training camp in Platteville, WI, before the team decided to keep him as their third quarterback over Moses Moreno.? This is the Bears we’re talking about, so of course Miller ended up starting by mid-season and actually turned in three of the best passing performances in Bears history.? Then he was suspended for the final four games of that season for testing positive for a banned supplement.? More on Jim Miller’s career with the Chicago Bears at www.bearshistory.com.
