Jim Johnson, 1941-2009...

Very sad news for the Eagles organization and the city of Philadelphia...

The Eagles had more than 6 months to get ready for the awful news that arrived as evening fell on training camp at Lehigh yesterday. So you wouldn't say Andy Reid or Joe Banner looked shocked, or even that they seemed on the verge of being overcome with grief, when the head coach and the team president met with reporters in a tent adjacent to the Lehigh practice fields, the sun sinking toward the mountains behind them.

Then, too, that would not have been how Jim Johnson would have wanted them to react to the news that Johnson had passed away, at age 68, of metastatic melanoma, at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.
