    You never hear much about this guy!!!! He had ten sacks last season and he didnt start alot of the games. Why dont they play him more?

    I don't know. But, the ten sacks really didn't help alot (in my opinion), because he was slow, and that led to many rushing yards being given up.

    Johnstone is a decent pass rusher but he is pretty bad against the run. I think he's good for passing situations, but he's not an every down player.

    Well he was an every down player when he was younger, but last year they decided to play him less and keep him fresh that way he can be a pass rushing monster on 3rd downs

    heres the reason the way i see it. 1.he dosent have the stamina to play every down and 2.As someone mentioned before he isnt that great against the run.

    Vikingspirit, his 10 sacks did mean something, becasue he did not give up any rushing yards since he only played on 3rd down passing situations. If you remember Mixon and DE, Williams at DE, Hovan and Fred Robbins at DT, Johnstone and Robbins rotated in with Lyons. Johnstone lack of run defense did not hurt anything much at all since he was not in the game on most of them.
