    Awesome! I was trying to make that GIF my signature, but I am so inept on the computer that I gave up.

    It certainly is and viewing it never gets old. Though the context is within a sporting event.

    Out in the real world, that would call assault :D.

    That was almost a pick too. The ball popped up and Jones was trying to snag it.

    At the time, the Bills were behind by only two scores. That hit was like the moment we stuck the fork in the Bills.

    Note that Vince could have driven Jones into the ground and probably hurt him pretty good, but chose to release his arms. Classy move. What an impact.

    His eyes must have been as wide as saucers when he saw that opportunity. It's not everyday that a nose tackle gets to make a hit like that.

    I have never seen a NT hit a WR like that. I'm sure Jones wasn't too happy w/ Fitz.

    I was watching w/ a few kids, and one said, "Is that guy dead"? He meant literally.

    Glad Jones is playing this week.

    I think he's still knocked out but just sort of walking around like when chickens get their heads cut off.

    Mama mia, that was a spicy hit.

    Its amazing how many times Vince comes up with a play when they need one considering that he is a NT!. I think Jones actually soiled himself when he got hit, it was massive, clean, and legal.

    So far this season, he gets my vote for team MVP.

    Definitely a great hit and a great play. Who knows, perhaps this could have the type of impact Bryan Cox's hit on Jerome Pathon had in 2001.

    Between Vince and Spikes, this defense is starting to get it's swagger back. Now if only one of our safeties would join the party.

    Jones must have hated Fitzpicksix for a few minutes after that.

    Unless you're on the receiving end of it, of course.
