Deacon Jones Award!

So whoever has the most sacks will win the new award in honor of Deacon Jones.  

 

How cool would it be if Hardy or CJ is the 1st player to win the award.

 

Man our DL is going to be so sick....

 

Damn I can't wait for some football.

That would be cool. People look back at the history of the award, and a Carolina Panther could be the first one awarded it.

 

Unfortunately for us, I think having multiple guys with high sack abitlity will split some sacks, and some OLB like Von Miller or Demarcus Ware will probably win.

Oh really? Interesting, I'm excited to see how he does as a DE.

Heard him doing an interview on NFL Radio a couple weeks back. He seemed excited and said it's an easier transition than trying to go from a 4-3 DE to an outside linebacker in 3-4, kind of like Freeney and Mathis were asked to do in Indy. (He did not mention them specifically).

Well since The Kraken is getting 50 sacks this year I think its pretty much a lock we'll get it...

Would have been cool if Jones could have seen his namesake award while he was living.

My thoughts exactly!!!!!!

 

It was pretty much a given that Deacon Jones was the Godfather of the Sack.  Should have done that when they first started to record the stat.

 

I would be even cooler if both CJ and Kraken were Co-Award winners.

 

MONSTER INC. would be engraved on the top of the trophy.

Sounds like a great name for an award that should have already existed.
