MCMAHON HONORED
McMahon honored for efforts to raise awareness of impact of blows to head, make sports safer

CHICAGO


Jim McMahon got another rousing ovation in Chicago.

The "Punky QB" who once helped the Bears win a championship heard the cheers as he was honored Wednesday by the Sports Legacy Institute for his efforts to raise awareness about the long-term impact of repeated blows to the head and make sports safer for athletes at all levels. The Boston University-based group is at the forefront of the issue, and McMahon is lending his support.

He has opened up about his struggles with early onset dementia and suicidal thoughts, which he believes stem from the beating he absorbed through football. The recognition comes at a time when he's going nose to nose with the league.

To that, he says, he has "never had a problem messing with the NFL."
