On today's Pardon My Take... BRIAN HOYER! The current quarterback for the Las Vegas Raiders joined Mr. Cat and Mr. Commenter to talk about his career, what makes a great backup, his chances at starting, winning a Super Bowl, Ernie Adams, and tons more.
Hoyer has made many, many stops during his NFL career. Here are the teams he has played for mapped out for you:
New England Patriots (2009–2011)
Pittsburgh Steelers (2012)
Arizona Cardinals (2012)
Cleveland Browns (2013–2014)
Houston Texans (2015)
Chicago Bears (2016)
San Francisco 49ers (2017)
New England Patriots (2017–2018)
Indianapolis Colts (2019)
New England Patriots (2020–2022)
Las Vegas Raiders (2023–present)
That's 11 different stops, including THREE different stints with the Patriots (that includes a Super Bowl). But the era that we are here to spotlight today features Hoyer's 5-game career with the Chicago Bears. It was short, but it was sweet. Take a look at this impressive stat that was brought up by Big Cat on today's show:
Small sample size? Yes. But numbers never lie. And if Hoyer didn't get injured while playing for the Bears, he certainly could have lasted a bit longer in Chicago. Throwing 300+ yards 4 out of 5 times is impressive, and as Big Cat mentioned on today's show, it puts Hoyer in consideration for Bears QB GOAT!
