    Something nice to talk about for a change: Starting with the 2013 season the sack leader of the NFL will get a new award called the Deacon Jones Award. Very fitting, and a long overdue official addition. People have been keeping lists of sack totals for many years, and now having an award for it will bring some extra recognition, and possibly competition.

    So who's your favourite for this new award in 2013?

    Personally think it'll likely be Von Miller. He seems to have been growing into the game, and I think he could have a monster season next year.

    Von Miller is a beast. Maybe Watt as well. But who knows, JPP fell off the face of the earth during the season for no reason until we learned of his injury.

    I like how its a no bullshit voting award. Just goes straight to the sack leader.

    I'm gonna say DeMarcus Ware, which is bad news for him because I'm always wrong about this stuff


    In "news" that doesn't involve people being murdered, (yet?) Warren Sapp made some disparaging comments about Michael Strahan and Tiki Barber called Sapp an idiot. I'm really hoping Ronde comes to Sapp's defense for some twin-feud. But it won't happen because nobody, including Ronde, gives a shit what Tiki Barber has to say, oh well.

    Here's last year's sack leaders.

    The first thing that jumps out at me is guessing one guy is going to be very, very difficult. Going into 2012, I bet you could have gotten pretty decent odds on Watt and Smith. Both were excellent as rookies, but I don't think too many people would have pegged them to get near 20. The next thing that stands out at me is there's a lot of guys that could reasonably have monster years without it being shocking - Smith, Watt, Miller, Matthews, maybe one more big year from Allen, Ware, or Peppers, maybe Super Mario finally fulfills his potential. Maybe Bruce Irvin or another young guy blows up.

    I'd tend to agree that Miller's the best bet though. I can't seem to find any Vegas odds though.

    To be fair, Warren Sapp is an idiot.

    Back onto the guessing the Deacon Jones Award winner: I say that Watt, Miller, or Smith are probably the favorites, and I knwo that this will probably come off as homerism, but I would lean towards Smith. He has three other pass rushers on the team in Justin Smith, Ray McDonald, and Ahmad Brooks, all guys who make it improbable to double team Aldon Smith an opposing team would likely prefer to double up on Justin Smith, as that man is an unholy terror, even if he is getting older. Watt is a freak, and beats double teams consistently, but he will always be getting that double team. Miller had another formidable rusher on the other side last year in Dumervil, who is gone now. Opposing offenses can focus everything on blocking Miller when he is coming on a rush.

    Not that the others don't have a chance, in fact: I would rather have Miller or Watt on my team as they already are fantastic at other things besides just rushing the passer, Smith is learning pass coverage, and has been coming along splendidly, but is still a much better rusher.

    My sleeper pick for it would be Chris Long though, that guy is a monster, who hasn't been getting much coverage due to playing for the Rams. They had a ton of sacks last year, the main thing that I can see stopping him is playing against two monster offensive lines twice per year in Seattle and San Francisco.

    Sane people are boring. Or else I've been around insane people so long that I can't tell the difference anymore. Either way, chase away those silly notions of linear thought: they have never done anyone good.

    With a shirt jammed over his arms which means he was lounging and they weren't trying to let him get dressed.

    Anyone heard what the charge on Hernandez is? The video I watched said it hadn't been released yet. I'm guessing it's some kind of obstruction of justice or something like that.

    I read they are not going to announce the charges until his arrangement. Obstruction of justice wouldn't be difficult with all the potential evidence he destroyed, but they might have more than that by now.

    Ya I'm sticking with Watt/Von Miller.

    Probably just cursed them though.

    We will figure out what hes charged with in about 15 minutes minimum. The arraignment will be at 2:00pm EST.

    Odin Lloyd's family is present at the arraignment.


    I find this very interesting.

    well hopefully a true DE like peppers or Allen wins it.playing DE in a 4-3 is much harder to play then olb in a -3-4. the 3-4 guys are a dime a dozen, a monster 4-3 end like peppers is a gem.i bet wares #'s go down this year since he will be playing in a 4-3.even though he will be a pass rushing end,his sacks will still go down and will not be that good at stopping the run.deacon was a beast DE not olb,hopefully DE wins the first one.
