Welcome Back, Jim McMahon. The Bears Have Missed You.

Welcome Back, Jim McMahon. The Bears Have Missed You.

Jim McMahon took the field in the second half for the Chicago Bears sporting his No. 9 jersey and wearing a protective visor on his helmet.  My first thought was, when did Jim McMahon decide to make a comeback?  I really need to invest in Twitter. 

Say what you want about Chicago head coach Matt Nagy, but it’s rather rare to bench a quarterback when you have started the season 2-0.  Nagy pulled the trigger at half time of the game against Atlanta on Sunday, thus benching Mitchell Trubisky and inserting Jim McMahon or someone that looked just like him. 

The results were off the charts, as McMahon looked nothing like Trubisky, Chase Daniel, Jay Cutler, Jimmy Clausen, Matt Barkley, Mike Glennon, Caleb Hanie, Todd Collins, Kyle Orton, Rex Grossman, Brian Griese, Craig Krenzel, Chad Hutchinson, Jonathan Quinn, Chris Chandler, Kordell Stewart, Jim Miller, Henry Burris, Shane Matthews, Cade McNown, Steve Stenstrom, Moses Moreno, Erik Kramer, Rick Mirer, Dave Kreig, Steve Walsh, Jim Harbaugh, Mike Tomczak, Will Furrer or Peter Tom Willis.

McMahon adapted quickly, throwing for three touchdowns and having another one overturned in a scrap in the end zone.  Allen Robinson looked a lot like Willie Gault while Anthony Miller suddenly turned into Dennis McKinnon as McMahon sliced apart the Falcon defense on way to a third straight victory.

Wait!  That was Nick Foles?  What was Philadelphia thinking when giving up on that guy?  Another rant for another day.
