Default Derrick Johnson

Not the linebacker, the DB. Has anybody seen this guy play? It looks like we signed him along with Bedell. Does anyone think he might be a decent aquisition? He couldn't hurt, huh?

Don't get the hopes up. If he ends up being good, it'll be a pleasant surprise. Get ready for some heavy roster restructuring next offseason.

I always laugh when someone says that .1 seconds differance in a 40 time on indoor turf not wearing anything but shorts and T-shirt is worrying...good times



40 time= most overrated stat of all time

Well, any help we can get at CB im all for it. Even if he doesn't make a big impact. I would be happy with a little impact.

I run a 4.52 in the 40, and I guarantee i couldn't cover one receiver in the nfl, even the ones that run the 40 slower than me. 40 time is highly overrated. There is a receiver on my team that runs a 4.8, but beats me 70% of the time in 1on1 drills.


btw... interesting tidbit... we are playing kubiak's old team on friday...lol...

Default Re: Derrick Johnson

I'm waaaay late on this thread- but I feel like I've got some insight into Derrick Johnson's potential, so I'll share it with you guys. First of all, I'm a life long Charger fan, but I taught and coached track in Southern California and had the pleasure of knowing Derrick and his extended family (I coached his cousins) while he attended Notre Dame HS. I joined this board just so I could follow any news or comments on Derrick.

I followed his career at UW- he was a Frosh All American at UW and was a starting CB in the PAC 10 for his entire career- was almost the UW career INT leader- he's got the goods. He's one of the best raw athletes I saw come out of Southern California in the 12 years I was teaching and coaching there.

I was SHOCKED at the news that the 49er's released him- from what I can gather via internet, he had a groin injury in camp which slowed him down- coming into camp he was supposed to be battling for a starting position. He's an amazing athlete who has a nose for the ball- I hate to use cliche terms like "ball hawk" , but he had 3 picks in preseason last year and returned a fumble 78 yds for a TD in the regular season.

Flat out- the kid can play. I don't know the deal in SF, but I can tell you (based on my time knowing him and time spent around him) that I doubt it had anything to do with attitude or discipline. He was one of the most talented, friendly and respectful kids I spent time around as a coach.

He might not be a lock for the next 10 Pro Bowls, but I believe that given the chance to play, he could very well be a solid starting CB in the NFL for a few seasons.
