Rest in peace, Jim Johnson

Former Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Johnson

As a Redskins fan, I have a healthy dislike for the Giants, Cowboys and Eagles.

It’s a NFC East thing, a moral imperative, if you will.

But I always liked Jim Johnson.

Johnson, the longtime defensive coordinator of the Eagles, lost his battle with cancer yesterday.

And with his passing, one of the great coaching minds in the NFL fades away.

His teams were always fun to watch. Nobody, and I mean nobody, brought the house on blitzes more often than Johnson.

I always liked his moxie, even when it was pounding my Redskin quarterbacks into oblivion.

I’m telling you, Eagle games just won’t be the same without him.
