Dan Hampton: The '85 Bears would've won four Super Bowls if they had Jay Cutler

The 1985 Chicago Bears are regarded as one of the best teams in the history of the game. Yet that core of players only won that lone Super Bowl despite just how stacked they were on defense. Instead of a dynasty, they're nothing more than a one-hit wonder.

So, who were they missing? Jay Cutler.

On Saturday, during a visit to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Hall of Famer Dan Hampton expressed his belief that the Bears teams of the mid-80s would've won four Super Bowls if they had Cutler -- now a TV analyst for Fox -- at quarterback.

Cue the Cutler bashing in the comments section. But Hampton isn't entirely wrong.

Here's where I'm required to note that I'm a gigantic Jay Cutler supporter.

Would the Bears have won four Super Bowls with Cutler? Probably not. Winning four Super Bowls is a near-impossible task. But Cutler is the best quarterback in Bears' franchise history -- yes, he was better than Jim McMahon -- and if he had the luxury of playing with the greatest defense of all time, he likely would've emerged with a couple of Super Bowls.
