    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.

    This giant tree, standing 10,000 ft. high but not
    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...
