Bill Johnson's Defensive Lines

New, comments

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.

 

Yearly Sack Totals

Year/Team 2008/Denver 2007/Denver 2006/Atlanta 2005/Atlanta 2004/Atlanta 2003/Atlanta 2002/Atlanta 2001/Atlanta
Sacks 26 33 37 37 48 36 47 3723
Yards Lost 141 203 235 257 312 205 298 230
