Miller never played an entire game at quarterback with the Pittsburgh Steelers (1994-1996) and never took a snap with the Atlanta Falcons (1997). It was not until 1999, his second year with the Chicago Bears, that Miller's playing time began to increase. Eventually, Miller earned the starting job and was instrumental in the Bears brief playoff-run in 2001 - their first berth since 1994. With the second-best record in the NFC (behind the St. Louis Rams), the Chicago Bears were awarded a bye. On January 19, 2002, the Chicago Bears met the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Divisional Playoffs with Jim Miller at the helm. The game was fairly competitive until the final seconds of the first half when Eagles' defensive end Hugh Douglas delivered a hit to Miller that resulted in a separated shoulder. Shane Matthews replaced Jim Miller, but the Chicago Bears never recovered without their leader and succumbed to Philadelphia 33-19.
