PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — KDKA’s Bob Pompeani caught up with former NFL quarterback Jim McMahon.

Jim talks about why he joined a lawsuit with other former players against the NFL.  He discusses the attitude regarding concussions when he played, and says that his greatest fear moving forward is not being able to recognize his family.

Jim recalls his playing days with the Chicago Bears.  He gives his reasons why he thinks the Bears did not win more than one Super Bowl.  He also recalls the motives behind the Super Bowl Shuffle, and the infamous video that made it famous.

Jim wraps up his conversation with Bob by talking about his charity work, and whether it bothers him that he’s not in the BYU Hall of Fame.
