    Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Johnson dies from cancer after his long battle. Had a bad feeling when they announced his successor some days ago that he wasn't doing well. RIP.

    That was fast. They just announced after the Eagles lost the NFC Championship game in January that he had cancer. RIP.

    This reminded me of Fritz Shurmur, another great DC who went quickly after it was diagnosed.

    RIP to a guy who gave the Cowboys fits.

    Those lifer assistants lead strange lives. So many hours in the "cave," watching tape, move all over the country, never get enough credit and get sacked when the head coach goes down in flames.

    RIP. Super sad news. ...
    Sean McDermott has a heavy burden of replacing a coaching legend.
