“It was around 1994 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1994_NFL_season) or '95 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1995_NFL_season), when I was with the Colts (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indianapolis_Colts), and we were playing against San Francisco (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Francisco_49ers) with Steve Young (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Young_(American_football)) running the West Coast offense (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/West_Coast_offense), releasing receivers (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wide_receiver) all the time, guys getting by you. The idea was don't let these people dictate to you. You have to put more pressure [on the quarterback], and every year we tried to figure out how to do that.”—Jim Johnson, describing the origin of his defensive philosophy.[3] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Johnson_(American_football)#cite_note-2)

like i said in the nfl thread, now if they could only get the eagles qb to die, they would have a a legitimate shot at winning the super bowl.

Theres Nothing Better Then An Attacking Defense And He Was Great At Getting His Guys To Do Just That. He Made Life Difficult On Qb's Especially Young Qb's With All His Blitzes.
