Michael Johnson vs. Carlos Dunlap: Quarterback Sack Breakdown by Quarter

USA TODAY Sports

Taking a quick look at the production differences between Johnson and Dunlap by quarter.

While posting on the Michael Johnson story earlier, we wanted to do a quick breakdown on their sack totals based on quarters. Why? First of all, it just entered this glorious mind to do so and second, it adds to the overall Johnson vs. Dunlap debate, when factoring contract arguments.

Here is Michael Johnson's breakdown by quarter. You'll note that 41.3 percent of his sacks are from the first quarter and 63 percent from the first half.
