The Chicago Bears have a new single season sacks leaderVincent Pariseon January 2, 2022 at 9:46 pm

The Chicago Bears put on a phenomenal performance at Soldier Field. They defeated the New York Giants with style as the final score was 29-3. New York stood no chance in this one as they were outmatched in every avenue of football. Former Bears quarterback Mike Glennon was under center in place of Daniel Jones and it did not work out well.

Eli Manning in his prime would have had trouble beating the Bears today with this Giants team. They have been very bad during the entire tenure of David Gettleman as their general manager. When Bears fans get mad at their team, they can know that there are other teams out there in very similar situations.

The big story of this game, however, is not the win or loss for either team. The Giants probably want to lose and they own Chicago’s first-round draft pick from the Justin Fields trade. With oddly similar records coming in, the result of the game was just for final league standings as neither is even close to the postseason.

The real story was the record set by Robert Quinn. He broke Richard Dent’s single-season record for sacks. The previous record of 17.5 was set by Dent in 1984. He is also in third place with 17 sacks in the 1985 season. Quinn sits at 18 with one more week of football left.

Robert Quinn was sensational for the Chicago Bears during the 2021-22 season.

CONGRATS! to Robert Quinn for breaking Richard Dent’s @ChicagoBears single season sack record! HUGE YEAR!

ROBERT QUINN! 18 sacks, Chicago Bears single season record!

Quinn will try to extend his single-season record next week in the season finale against the Minnesota Vikings. Extending the record is nice but it is good to see him do it with one week left in the season because it is cool to see him do it in 16 games instead of 17 so nobody could use that against him. This leaves no doubt. It was also cool to see him do it at home.

It was a great year for him as he had mixed expectations coming in. He was awful in 2020 and needed a big bounce-back year. He gave everything the Bears needed and more with his record-breaking performance.

We all know how important and beloved Richard Dent is/was to Chicago Bears’ history. To see a record like that get broken by someone like Quinn is so much fun. Nobody wanted to see him have the 2020 season that he did but it all makes sense now.

Hopefully, for his sake and the Bears, he is able to put together a similar performance next year. It would really help the Bears win a lot more as long as the offense clicks. It wasn’t the best season but this was certainly one of the few things to smile at.
