Is Charles Johnson a double digit sack guy?

35 posts in this topic

Yes, you guys are forgetting Charles Johnson was a projected 1st round pick but he fell to us in the 3rd. He could play ball in College and I've always seen potential in him. He will be the starter next year, I promise you that. He is a well rounded DE that can stop the run and put preasure on the quarterback.

he's definatley capable because he missed 4-5 this year by just a few fingertips or a handful of jersey...did anybody else notice that?

He can get to the QB, he just needs to finish.

I am confused how one can tell a guy has a good motor when he only plays on passing downs where his only job is to get the quarterback. If you watch him in college he took plays off just like most pass rushing DE do. He is a good talent but not a starter. He benefits from working in a rotation.

why would you double team a guy who really hasnt proven anything yet?

Do you think he's an unknown quantity to OC's? Unless we blitz or have a pass-rushing DT, what else are you gonna do with that 5th blocker? Double Brayton? The guy had 6 sacks in a fraction of Pep's playing time and was close on tons more.

Being that Georgia is on the tube about as much as anyone in the county, plus the fact that I take an interest in Georgia football and watch these games (which just so happen to be against SEC and/or BCS level talent, plus the fact that I do take an interest into what the scouts have to say, I believe that this qualifies me to say that Charles Johnson has a good motor, etc.

I played DE when I was coming up, and you are not going to see action every play. I know my coaches preached the importance of "staying home" even though it may appear as though the play is on the opposite side of the field. Now, I don't know. Perhaps this can be taken for taking plays off. Anyway, you're insinuating that the guy has the supposed faults of Pep before you even see him play on the field on a consistent basis. Wow!
