The Chicago Bears dominated the New York Giants on Sunday, with veteran defensive end Robert Quinn acting as one of the key contributors for the Bears. During the win, Quinn picked up his 18th sack of the season, setting the single-season record for the Chicago Bears, having bested the mark previously owned by legendary defender Richard Dent. After the game, Quinn revealed the hilariously savage message he received from Dent ahead of Sunday’s kickoff, via Kevin Fishbain.

Yes, Quinn did manage to become the Bears’ single-season sack leader on Sunday, but Dent didn’t want him letting that get to his head. When talking to Quinn yesterday, the Bears legend reminded Quinn that he had set his record of 17.5 sacks back in 1984, a season in which Dent started just 10 games.

It’s truly remarkable that Dent had started just 10 games the year he set his record, though he did feature in 16 games. It was just Dent’s second year in the league, and he had yet to earn his place as an everyday starter for the Bears. His production during that season vaulted him into the starting lineup, and he made the most of his opportunities en route to his 17.5-sack season.

Quinn has started 15 of Chicago’s 16 games this season, having been sidelined for just one week back in October. That missed time didn’t prevent him from landing in the Bears’ record books, while also achieving some other history in the process.

In addition to becoming the franchise’s single-season sack leader, Quinn saw his career sack tally surpass 100, capping off what was an all-around electric day for the star linebacker.
