    Not that it's a surprise, but it kinda makes me sick how much NFL Network and ESPN are covering the Brett Favre situation compared to JJ's death. They were having phone calls with Vikings players asking them about not getting Brett Favre but they don't have any phone calls with anybody or even a decent segment to honor Jim Johnson.
    Its kind of expected, but they did have a call with one fo the radio guys about it on ESPNews last night that I saw, but that really is it...

      The NFL is not better without him.

      Coordinators seriously need to get HOF consideration.
      Quoted for truth. I would say that Johnson had more respect from me than any other DC and many head coaches.



      RIP buddy RIP

        You're not the first one to talk about that. Someone on our giants MB, BBI, had a thread started with the same topic. You would assume the BF lovefest would be done since he retired already, but Jim J is a legend! They should cover him!

          As a skins fan I have so much respect for this guy, I've always thought he was the best DC in the NFL. One of the all time great defensive coaches if you ask me.

          RIP

            I absolutely hated playing against him but that was because he was one of the best at his job. RIP, Jim Johnson.

              I like most Skins fans hated facing this guy twice a year because he was so darn good. Putting all emnity aside today we sit with you in sorrow at the passing of a truly great coach.

              My condolences to his family. RIP Jim Johnson you will be sorely missed.

                Decent tribute to Johnson. He did lead a great defense for a long time and has a good list of proteges.

                  Some nice youtube tributes, brought tears to my eyes. (First one is from philadelplhiaeagles.com and is narrated by eagles play by play guy Merrill Reese and the second is the same vid but with music playing)

                    As a fan of football it's sad to see JJ's passing. I was always jealous of the Eagles defensive play..he was one of the best defensive minds probably ever. I hope Spags brings what his mentor taught him to the Rams. RIP Jimmy, you fought the good fight!
