NFL loses a great

July 30, 2009

Former Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinater, Jim Johnson died yesterday at the age of sixty-eight.  He coached next to Andy Reid from 2000-2008 and during that time the Eagles made the playoffs seven times, and he produced 26 pro bowl selections.  Known for his frustrating blitz schemes to intimidate quarterbacks and receivers, the Eagles ranked second in sacks over Johnson’s nine year tenure as defensive coordinator.  Being a Giants fan, I always hated when the Gmen ran into Philly.  Touchdowns were never easy to come by, let alone bunches of yards at a time.  Jim Johnson will go down as one of the best defensive minds to ever touch upon the NFL.
