Jim McMahon was never a quarterback who put up monster stats during his time in the NFL. Despite this, his teams managed to win games more often than not whenever he was starting under center.
After seven seasons with the Chicago Bears and one with the San Diego Chargers, McMahon wound up with the Eagles in 1990. He went on to start 12 games for Philadelphia from 1990 to 1992, and in these 12 matchups, they won eight times.
After the 1992 season, McMahon headed back to the NFC Central division to play for the Vikings in 1993. In his lone year in Minnesota, he started 12 games, and he led the team to an 8-4 record in these contests.
Two of the Vikings’ eight wins in 1993 with McMahon starting came against the Bears, and you know those victories were a little extra sweeter for the former Chicago quarterback.
