Although Shane Matthews played the majority of his Bears career in the 1990s, he still earned a place in the Top Ten.
Matthews, an undrafted free agent out of Florida, signed with the Bears in 1993. He didn't appear in a game until 1996, a loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in which Matthews didn't throw a pass. He would see his first regular NFL action in a Week 17 loss to the Tampa Bay Bucaneers.
Matthews would spend the 1997 and 1998 seasons on the practice squad of the Carolina Panthers before returning to the Bears in 1999, where he split time with Cade McNown and Jim Miller.
After a 1-8 start by a Cade McNown-led team in 2000, Matthews became the starter, and went 3-2 for the Bears down the stretch.
After Jim Miller was named the starter in 2001, Matthews came in as a backup, going 2-1 for a Bears team that would win the NFC North with a 13-3 record.
Matthews finished with an 11-11 record as a Bears starter, throwing for 3462 yards, 19 touchdowns, 18 interceptions, and a QB rating of 75.1.
