The Philadelphia Eagles have lost the heart and soul of their defense. Defensive coordinator, Jim Johnson has passed away. As a fan, I always saw the game face and his best efforts to put an amazing defense on the field. To his family, though, they have a lost a friend, brother, son, husband, father and grandfather. His players lost a father-figure and mentor.
The Phialdelphia sports community has had some hard hits the past few months: Harry Kalas, Gary Papa and now Mr. Johnson.
My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
Here is an example of why he is revered by the fans.
