Actually he was never much of a blocker, and was a very overrated receiver too. The hype around him was that he was good, but that was it - hype. He had zero RAC ability, and he dropped more balls than TO! I remember watching a game where he had 4 or 5 drops, it was pathetic - but there was John Madden rambling on about how great his hands were??? I don't think he was even watching the game, just reading his cue cards. I was glad to see him go! Eric Johnson - and John Madden!
Why would you even post something like this?
The truth is; he was a WR in college and worked hard on his blocking with the 49ers, and became a decent, not great blocking TE.
TEs are not supposed to get RAC but Johnson did have some decent games.
As to him having "4 or 5 drops" in a single game=
I was a season-ticket holder the entire time he was with the 49ers, and I never saw the player you describe.
