Long before Jay Cutler somewhat stabilized the position came a carousel of forgettable names. Among them was Steve Stenstrom, a longtime backup thrust into the starting role for seven games during a 1998 season that saw the Bears go 4-12. As a backup, Stenstrom was an excellent clipboard carrier. As a starter, well, the numbers don't lie. He went 1-6 in seven starts, throwing for four touchdowns, six interceptions and 1,252 yards.
These days, Stenstrom runs Pro Athletes Outreach, a faith-based not-for-profit that hosts conferences across the country and aims to help professional athletes integrate faith into their daily lives.
