RIP Jim Johnson

A sad day for football...

Jim Johnson, defensive co-ordinator for my beloved Philadelphia Eagles, has passed away today after a long battle with cancer. Johnson was the architect of the high pressure, in your face, aggressive style of defense that has made the Eagles the consistent NFC powerhouse they are.

He was a great co-ordinator, an innovator, a brilliant football mind, and from what I hear a great family man.

Thanks for the memories, Jim. Eagles fans will miss you.
