Broncos LB Alexander Johnson tears pec; Out for season


Recommended Posts

He was superb with Jewell next to him in those opening weeks. I'd say he actually out performed Jewell, and everyone knows how much I love Jewell.

But ... as soon as Josey went out, Johnson's play went down in a hurry. He's an instinctive player in the run game, not a coordinator. When he has to think on behalf of two players (Strnad) Johnson plays half a second slower and for someone of pretty limited athletic ability, that's a problem at this level.

I think it's safe to say that those who wanted Jewell out and Strnad in have changed their minds. The latter has been poor in his time thus far. Yes, he's young, but there aren't many good signs right now.

And, he's now the veteran ILB in terms of scheme familiarity.
