Many historians and sportswriters consider Sid Luckman the Bears' all-time best quarterback. Playing from 1939 to 1950, Luckman became the game's first great T-formation quarterback when he led the Bears to a 73-0 win in the 1940 NFL League game. He was league MVP in 1943, when in one game he threw a record seven touchdown passes. He threw five in the NFL championship game that year. Luckman threw for 14,686 yards and 137 touchdowns during his career. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1965.
