I was just perusing the NFL statlab (first time I've noticed it) and I noticed some stats that, combined with the league leading (tied with Cameron Wake and Robert Quinn) sack total for 4-3 DEs, make CJ a shoe-in for best performing 4-3 DE in the league so far this year.

In my opinion, the most important stat for pass rushers (that NFL.com tracks, not talking advanced stats like PFF or other places like that) are sacks, forced fumbles, and tackles.

- As we all know, Chuck is tied with Wake and Quinn for most sacks by a 4-3 DE in the league.

- He also is also tied for leading the league in forced fumbles, with Elvis Dumervil. (And unlike any of the other DEs, he actually recovered 1 too)

- Of the aforementioned DEs, he has the second most tackles, 1 behind Wake.

So to total up the production of these 4 top DEs:

Chuck: 8.5 sacks, 5 forced fumbles (1 recovered), 21 tackles
Wake: 8.5 sacks, 1 forced fumble, 22 tackles
Quinn: 8.5 sacks, 1 forced fumble, 18 tackles
Dumervil: 7 sacks, 5 forced fumbles, 20 tackles

Looking at it simply like this, Chuck is obviously the most productive 4-3 DE in the game this year, so far. He definitely SHOULD make the Pro Bowl. Would be a shame if he, as many players before him, are penalized for being on a bad/small market team. Good job #95. Worth every cent.

Just to think if we had a consistent 1st round talent pass rusher across from him...

I'd say that the 4th and 6th rounders that currently line up across from him are doing just fine.

Yea, the 6th rounder that starts across from him ain't too far off the 4 I listed: 6.5 sacks, 1 forced fumble (1 recovered), 25 tackles

ps. just noticed the tackles stats I've been listed are solo tackles, not solo + assists. Hardy would be tied with Dumervil for most combined of the 5. Chuck would be second.

Give that man a raise... He always earned that check.

Or

We would be watching him and J. Abraham at DE winning a SB... But Mr. Charles Johnson is here.. So therefore falcon chokage will ensue.

In other news Falcons waived Edwards though he was just as good as Johnson at a lesser contract.....

Ray Edwards was a simple example of supply and demand...Falcons needed a pass rusher. Charles Johnson was by far the best one on the market. Panthers overpaid to keep him, and he turned out to be a consistent player.

Ray Edwards benefited from playing on one of the best D-Line's in the game at the time. Because of Charles Johnson's deal, Ray Edwards commanded a much higher salary that he wasn't really worth...just because there weren't many other alternatives on the market. Even though it was a small win, I'll take any Panthers victory over the Falcons right now. Keeping CJ away from the Falcons was the right move at any cost.
