Deacon is still one tough sob, too. He could probably still whoop all of us with one hand tied behind his back. I remember an interview on Rome a couple of years ago, and he was playing a charity football game with a bunch of teenagers. Well, one 15 year old started talking trash to him, and Deacon told him to shut it. But the kid kept it up, calling him "old man" and just talking down to him. Next play, Deacon waylayed him and left the kid on the ground, out cold! He was actually kinda' bragging about it in the Jungle. Right or wrong, you've got to respect his attitude (and stature, as the kid quickly found out!).





I think TJ will be our man if he has even a 10th of the mental toughness of Deacon. You just don't mess with those kind of guys, and NEVER, EVER piss them off!

I met Deacon Jones in a flight from Nashville to Houston about 2-3 years ago. He was with two young women who were his "manager-advisors". There were only a few on the flight and I was in awe...with him...and his "managers".

That's way cool, Vinny!

Although I was too young to see him play, and only get to check him out via NFL Films, he's one of my football heroes along with the great Earl (among a few others).

I wouldn't even know what to say to him, to be honest. "Mr. Jones" would definitely be part of whatever babble I spoke, though!

possibly a good point. i believe that the successes and failures of a linebacking squad ride on whether or not the d-line can penetrate and reeck havok among the o-lineman. if the d-line does enough to distract the o-line, then the linebackers can breeze right to the QB
