R.I.P. (http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000208873/article/deacon-jones-fearsome-master-of-the-qb-sack-dies-at-74?campaign=Facebook_news) ... A true legend, a great quote, and a pioneer of the pass rush... All of heavens great Quarterbacks are shaking in their boots, knowing that Deacon is lining up on the opposite side of Reggie White now.

RIP Deacon Jones

The founder of the fear and intimidation that comes with the word "sack".

Simply one of the greatest to play the game. It's safe to call him the Godfather of Intimidation. Truly a legend.
RIP Mr. Jones

I think it was Candid Camera that had a practical joke Bubba Smith played on Deacon Jones. Got him to dress up in a pink ballerina tutu complete with tiara and magic wand to go to some venue for a supposed charity benefit, but ... the cameras were rolling. Deacon said to Bubba, "Bubba! Why you got to do me this way!?" Or, something to that effect. Deacon was totally punked, but was a pretty good sport about it. :D
