The 2003 Chicago Bears season was their 84th regular season completed in the National Football League. The club posted a 7–9 record under head coach Dick Jauron. The team was once again in a quarterbacking carousel with quarterbacks Kordell Stewart, Chris Chandler, and rookie Rex Grossman. The club improved over its 4–12 record of the season before, but it was not enough to save Jauron's job.
