    With the way the Eggles season is going...Andy Ried might be out of a job. Leaving blitz happy DC Jim Johnson on the market.

    Giants DC Steve Spagnolo was the Eagles LB coach before he went to the big apple.....He implemented the same aggressive defense that has made the G-men the team to beat.

    I figure what better way to get the most out of our talent then to go to the SOURCE of this great scheme.

    IMO opinion this is the way to go....

    So for now im a Texans fan, and whoevers playing the Philly.:bat:

    I would love to have Jim Johnson here, and I imagine he would love coaching some of the talent the Texans have on the Defense, especially the D-Line.

    Its pretty possible that he gets the job if Andy Reid is gone.

    There's an asistant under Jim Johnson named Sean McDermott that's been with Philly for 10 yrs. now. McDermott coaches the Secondary/Safties and if he's good enough to work for Jim Johnson for 10 yrs. he should be good enough for us.

    If true, I'd like the Texans to dump Kubiak and hire Reid. Oh, and bring Jim Johnson with him.

    hmmmm now we're getting interesting. isn't johnson 400 years old? does he have any ties to Texas or Kubiak? I wiki'd him. No connection. Went to school in Missouri, played in Buffalo, coached in Arizona, Seattle and Indy... no way he shows up here.


    Now this McDermott guy is young and that's a different situation. He has no ties either. But I fear that another risk with a Defensive guy with no history as a Cooridnator puts us in a similar situation that we have now.

    Except the guy we have now has 3 years of experience as a Dcooridinator.

    Johnson has never been the problem in Philly. If Reid leaves, no way Johnson is asked to leave with him.

    jim johnson is going to have his choice of gigs. andy reid would also be a great replacement for Scrubiak as well. not ideal, but definitely someone who can build a program and motivate the troops. that is something that Kubiak is a failure at.

    He may not be asked to leave but most of the time when a team gets a new HC he likes to bring in his own people ....



    I sure wouldnt be upset with Johnson calling the shots for the Texans D ... one hell of an improvement over Dick ....

    Jim Johnson would be awesome, but I highly doubt he would come here because I think he maybe next in line for the HC job like Bubba said. As long as Dick Smith hits the bricks I'll be happy with whomever they replace him with, they couldn't possibly be any worse.

    if Reid gets fired, I would think Steve Spagnolo would be at the top of the Eagles' list for HC...and he might want to keep Jim Johnson as his DC.
