Jim Johnson passes away at age 68

One of the great defensive masterminds was lost today amid the Farve-watch and the fact that Farve isn't coming back. constructing a defense that worked liked DIck LeBeau's defenses in the fact that blitzses came form everywhere but Johnson created his confusion for the 4-3 not the zone-blitzing 3-4 of LeBeau system. During his ten year tenure as the Defensive coordinator fo the Eagles the Eagles made the Playoffs 5 times going to four-straight NFC Championship games and one more NFC Championship game last year losing to the Cards with one Super Bowl appearance and produced 26 pro-bowlers and had a ten year total of 390 sacks. He is survied by his wife two children and four grandchildren.
