    Does this mean I have to get into Ultimate fighting now?

    Word to the Gronk brothers. I wouldn't try to give a wedgy to the Jones brothers. Those dudes look tough.

    Great video; thanks for the link. Awesome people (even if one does play for the Ravens, which disqualifies them from the "favorite brothers" competition.)

    Love the character of so many of the Pats picks this year - Jones, Hightower, Wilson has a great personal story, Ebner.

    I was following the draft on Twitter and you can probably guess which NFLN reporter tweeted to Greg Bedard after Dennard was picked: "If Belichick isn't asked something along lines of 'What kinda dumbass gets popped a week b4 the draft?' I'll be disappointed." OK, fair question, but you also have to ask the questions that give BB credit for picking some high character guys too.

    Nice video. He was robbed, they shouldn't have disqualified him. After being robbed, he was very composed and said all the right things. I hope Chandler has a similar perspective.

    Is this accurate? I tried to google it and didnt get any exact hits on the first page or two. I got one link back to another thread here and some links to mock drafts with this in the comment section.

    If so then all do respect to the Gronk family the Jones family wins.

    I don't think it's correct. I Googled "Deacon Jones Chandler" and all I got was a link to someone's post on this board. I'm pretty sure that with all the mention of family in the Jones draft coverage this would have been made abundantly clear if true.

    Yeah, Deacon Jones is their great-grandfather, if that's what you're asking.

    Don't at least two of them have to don a Patriots uniform for the family to qualify? :confused:

    Jones beat the hell out of Hamill there, I don't see the problem. Sucks that he got DQed, but fight should have been over long before that.

    The Deacon is still very much alive - any reports of his demise are greatly exaggerated...!

    He was an amazing talent and player- from Wikipedia:


    Sacks
    Jones was considered by many to revolutionize the position of defensive end. Jones was noted for coining the term "sack." What separated Jones from every other defensive end was his blinding speed and his ability to make tackles from sideline to sideline, which was unheard of in his time. He also was the first pass rusher to utilize the head slap, a move that he said "To give myself an initial headstart on the pass rush, in other words a extra step. Because anytime you go upside a man's head ... or a woman; they may have a tendency to blink they eyes or close they eyes. And that's all I needed. [sic]"
    Pro Football Weekly reported he accumulated 194½ sacks over his career, which would be third on the all-time sack list. (Jones would have ranked first all-time at the time of his retirement, and since has been surpassed by two fellow Hall of Famer's Bruce Smith and Reggie White.) [7]
    In 1967, Jones had 26 sacks in only 14 games, which (if official) would be the single season record. (The term "sack" had not yet been coined at the time, and official sack statistics were not recorded by the NFL until 1982.) Then in 1968 Jones had 24 sacks in 14 games, also more than the current NFL record.[8] The sum total of these two seasons would give him 50 sacks in 2 seasons, far more than anyone else has achieved.

    Unofficial Annual Sack Totals
    1961 8, 1962 12, 1963 20, 1964 22, 1965 19, 1966 18, 1967 26, 1968 24, 1969 15, 1970 12, 1971 4½, 1972 6, 1973 5, 1974 3

    No. His dad IS a Pentecostal Minister (so, in fact, he could be called a "Deacon Jones" :) ) but I don't think the actual Deacon Jones is any relation. It would have been mentioned by now.

    Great piece. I'm a big fan of Bones. The guy is going to redefine the MMA fighter. I hope Chandler's got the same competitiveness as Jon.
