    We won't be seeing Jim McMahon on or off the field around town anymore.

    The Punky QB won't be watching the Chicago Bears in his North Shore mansion anymore.

    Jim McMahon, the former quarterback who led the team to a Super Bowl championship, has moved on.

    In an uncharacteristic move, McMahon has quietly headed for Florida after selling his 9,626-square-foot Northbrook home for $2.85 million. 

    A neighbor snatched up the English manor-style limestone and brick home before it ever hit the Multiple Listing Service.  

    The home was built after McMahon led the Bears to the 1986 Super Bowl. The sports-fantastic 2.38-acre property featured a Y-shaped staircase, racquetball and basketball courts, a hockey rink and a steam room that were featured in the Chicago Tribune  n 2002.

    If only the house could talk.
