Default NFL fans, we lost a good man yesterday

Jim Johnson, long time Defensive Coordinator for the Philadelphia Eagles lost his battle with skin cancer yesterday. As a lifetime long New York Giants fan I had the utmost respect for him as a man and as a football coach. Known for his aggressive defensive schemes that emphasized the blitz and pressure on the QB, he had the Eagles defense near the top for his entire run there. The Giants/Eagles games will not be the same without him.

Bummer. I didn't know his name, but I know the Eagles kick butt which is probably the epitaph he would want.

He was offered head coaching jobs several times, and refused them. He loved what he did, and made his mark on the NFL. He was a class act, the NFL lost a great man.
