NFL-Pain-racked McMahon still waiting for compensation (Reuters)

By Steve Keating HOUSTON, Feb 4 (Reuters) – Super Bowl memories are meant to last forever and former Chicago Bears quarterback Jim McMahon clings through the pain and haze to his as the ravages of a cranium-rattling National Football League career take a toll. At the 2011 NFL championship game in Dallas, McMahon, the quirky and feisty quarterback who helped the Bears to victory in Super Bowl XX in 1986, talked to Reuters about his fading football memories and the damage done over punishing a career. A bitter McMahon was back in Texas this week ahead of Sunday’s Super Bowl showdown between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons, still trying to bring attention to a concussion crisis that remains far from resolved despite an estimated $1 billion settlement between the league and players.
