One of the best blocks I've ever seen about 3 minutes in.

The funny thing is that the Seahawks only got this first round pick to pick Jones from the Bears by trading Rick Mirer. I say the Hawks came out ok on this deal.

I think every defensive end in the league will disagree with you on that one.

23 sacks over 13 years? Didn't even average 2 sacks a year. I bet nobody ever got sacked and said, "Cmon Mr. Jones!!!" simply for the fear of him turning around and saying "You're welcome" on the other 500 snaps a year...

and i believe 4 of those were in one game last year on a bad knee.
