4. Robbie Gould, K (2005-2015)

For 11 seasons, the Bears were as “good as Gould” with placekicker Robbie Gould wearing the blue and orange. Gould set numerous Bears records in his 11 seasons in Chicago, including field goals made and field goal percentage.

He became the franchise’s all-time leading scorer on October 11, 2015, en route to 1,207 points with the Bears, nearly 100 points ahead of fellow kicker Kevin Butler. He also holds numerous other records including most field goals made and most field goals made over 50 yards.

Gould was named to the Pro Bowl and First-Team All-Pro in 2006. Bears fans will forever remember Gould’s game-winning field goal in overtime over the Seahawks in the 2006 Divisional Playoffs, sending the Bears to the NFC Championship Game. He was the last Bear from the 2006 NFC Championship team to depart the franchise, as he was cut in 2016.

Bears fans would rather not talk about the last time that they saw Gould on the field, but we know he certainly enjoyed it. Gould went on to play with the New York Giants before signing with the San Francisco 49ers through the 2018 season. He is currently listed as the only kicker on the 49ers’ depth chart.
