Jim McMahon

Known for his free-spirit personality as much as his on-field triumphs, Bears' quarterback Jim McMahon sets to pass during the 1987 season. McMahon played well during his six starts, going 5-1 while tossing 12 touchdowns, but had to sit out for most of the year due to a lingering shoulder injury. He would remain only one more season in Chicago, as conflicts with head coach Mike Ditka prompted a trade to San Diego in 1989.
