Why is Jim Johnson taking a leave of absence from the Eagles?
Johnson is leaving to devote more time to his battle with cancer. He’s a special man. I have been around the Eagles these past couple of months and have noticed his impressive resolve in the face of obvious pain and fatigue. Johnson – beyond his obvious prowess as a defensive coordinator – appears to be as humble and polite a man as one could find. He treats all employees the same and with the appropriate respect and grace. We wish him well and will keep him in our thoughts in these difficult times.
Why were the NFL and Comcast finally able come to an agreement after years of dispute? As is true in any business, especially the business of football, everything is a negotiation.
