Hanie was signed by the Chicago Bears as an undrafted free agent following the 2008 NFL Draft on April 28, 2008. He made the team's 53-man roster prior to the start of the 2008 season.
He made his first regular season contribution as a Bear towards the end of their blowout loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on October 25, 2009. He completed one of two passes for two yards. He went on to make another appearance against the Baltimore Ravens on December 20, 2009, completing two of five passes for eight yards. During that game, he also threw his first career interception on an acrobatic play by Dominique Foxworth. On October 3, 2010 Bears starter Jay Cutler and second string quarterback Todd Collins both suffered injuries in a game against the New York Giants, and Hanie entered the game as an emergency quarterback. He went three of four for 36 yards, but the Bears still suffered their first loss of the 2010 season. On October 10, 2010, with Cutler on the bench due to a concussion suffered the previous week, Collins started the game but proved ineffective, throwing four interceptions. Hanie entered the game in the third quarter and went two of three for 19 yards. The Bears won the game 23–6, primarily on points scored in the early part of the first quarter, and scored two fourth-quarter field goals on drives led by Hanie.
NFC Championship Game
Hanie entered the NFC Championship Game as an emergency quarterback in the third quarter after a knee injury to starter Jay Cutler and a disappointing performance by second-stringer Todd Collins, leading the Bears to a touchdown in his first series on the field. He was later intercepted by defensive lineman B. J. Raji, who returned the pick for a touchdown. On the following drive, Hanie led the Bears to a second touchdown, while using only eighty-one seconds of the game clock. He threw another interception, this time to Sam Shields, with 37 seconds left in the game. Overall, Hanie completed 13 passes in 20 attempts for 153 yards. Despite this performance, the Bears lost to the Packers 21-14.
