Bill Johnson's Defensive Lines

To get to know our new defensive line coach a little better, I put together all of the most relevant stats I could find pertaining to Bill Johnson's defensive lines in his 8 NFL seasons. The first is a chart of sack totals and sack yards lost for each season. Then it's a year by year breakdown of his teams run defense rankings and sack percentage. High rankings are desirable. The most recent years also have a defensive play direction breakdown.
