Is Charles Johnson a double digit sack guy?

35 posts in this topic

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.

And add this to the above.:iagree:

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 faults of Pep before you even see him play on the field on a consistent basis. Wow!

I just don't quite understand how you can blame Peppers and not blame Johnson for the exact same reasoning you just proposed... :D

Mint, I hope my edit of "supposed" faults of Pep clears this up. I was editing it while you were posting. I don't blame Pep for anything.

Yeah I think he is. He has the Motor of Brayton with alot more pass rush ability. He was the only one getting to Warner in our First game with Arizona. Madden thinks he might be good to. When I got rid of peppers and made him the starter he ended the season with 13 sacks. Maybe it's a premonition of things to come? ;)

I think he has the ability to be a complete player in this league. Whether he meets or exceeds 10 sacks, I don't know. He can do it all, though, and should be starting next year (over Brayton, if we have a guy good enough to start opposite them, which we need; if not, Brayton will probably start for run downs and give way to a situational end like Cincy's Connor Barwin in the 2nd, or if we're able to get a 1st, maybe Everett Brown).

It will matter whether we can get a better DT in on run downs, freshening Lewis up (which, with the injury, is important anyway), and a guy with a good first step and great leverage/push will go a long way to making the rush improved.

reminds me of a mike rucker type guy. between 7-10 sacks per year, depending on who he has playing with him. he isn't one of the top tier players that creates that situation, but he is good enough to benefit off of it.

here's my synopsis

year 1: 0 sacks

year 2: 6 sacks

he's definitely making improvement. And i'll say he's better than any DE prospect we can get in the draft.

year 2: 6 sacks

But how many plays was he on the field for in 2008? I'm wondering if his sacks per number of plays ratio is higher than Peppers.

A 10-sack player?

Good Lord.

Seriously. His poor wife.
