Chicago Bears are ‘where quarterbacks go to die’: Jim McMahon

[ad_1]

Jim McMahon’s popularity in Chicago might’ve just gone in the toilet.

The lone starting quarterback to win a Super Bowl for the Bears ripped his former organization while praising their rival, the Packers. The 61-year-old McMahon told 1252 Sports that Green Bay is his favorite franchise in the league and the Bears can’t compare.

“I think it’s where quarterbacks go to die,” he said.

McMahon began his career with Chicago as its first-round pick in 1982, won a title in 1985 and finished his playing days with the Packers as Brett Favre’s backup.

“It was the best team, or the best organization, that I’ve played for of the seven teams I’ve played for,” McMahon said. “By far. From top to bottom it was great people.”

It’s hard to argue with him. The Packers have produced elite quarterbacks while the Bears can’t get out of their own way. The latest bust was taking Mitchell Trubitsky second in the 2017 draft over Deshaun Watson and Patrick Mahomes, and now going into 2021 with veterans Andy Dalton and Nick Foles.
