Bears Legend Jim McMahon Rips Team Out of Nowhere
By Larry Rupp
The Chicago Bears have had an entertaining offseason to say the least and continue to be the brunt of the jokes when it comes to their struggles to find a franchise quarterback. It doesn't seem to be getting any better as Bears legend Jim McMahon recently ripped the team out of nowhere.
McMahon definitely didn't hold back saying, "Chicago is where quarterbacks go to die." That is not a very great endorsement from a starting quarterback that helped Chicago win its first and only Super Bowl in franchise history back in 1985.
Jim McMahon Rips Bears
As the team's first-round pick (No. 5 overall) in the 1982 NFL Draft, McMahon spent his first seven NFL seasons with the Bears and lead the team to a 46-15 record as the starter. He threw for over 11,000 yards and also tossed 67 touchdowns during that span.
McMahon went as far as saying it was the division rival Green Bay Packers that were the best organization he played for. That has got to hurt for Bears fans. He explained how the Bears have always emphasized a running game and a strong defense, yet can't seem to develop a QB.
This is just a bad look for the Bears in every way. McMahon is a legend for this team and has now joined the group of people that look down upon the organization. We'll see if Chicago can surprise some people in the upcoming season with veteran quarterback Andy Dalton calling the shots.
