If Wilson, Galette and Jordan combine for 35 sacks, we should all start ordering Super Bowl merchandise now.

Vaccarro has changed my mind about the pick, he's all over the field. I'm excited about him now.

I've looked, can't find any. I was going to do the SB if we went since I have future in laws in jersey but the tickets are outrageous. Twice what they were for Miami.

Yeah, it's almost exclusively a corporate event now. A Super Bowl experience- tickets for two, airline tickets, a few nights in a decent hotel in the host city, plus food and drinks- is about $8,000.

For that amount I could buy a 70 inch flatscreen and enough booze and food for my 20 closest friends with enough left over to take a cruise with the wife.

How much did you pay in Miami? And were your seats good?

This might actually be conservative.

Damn. And they are twice the price now? That's a deal breaker.

This Fox guy is all over Jones' junk

Week 1:

Kenny Vaccaro: 3 tackles, 3 assist- 6 combined
Jarvis Jones: 1 tackle, 1 assist- 2 combined

Week 2:

Kenny Vaccaro: 6 tackles!!! 6! and 1 pass defended on 3rd down
Jarvis Jones: 2 tackles, 1 forced fumble (Will Smith would have made that play. I wouldn't say he caused it. Rex pitch+ missed assignment+ bad fullback= fumble)

So through 2 weeks Vaccaro has combined 12 tackles compared to Jarvis Jones 4 tackles.

I have to almost completely agree with this. He just happened to be there when the ball was so carelessly put up for grabs, but you do have to give him credit for being there. He came in unblocked and then rushed inside before seeing that it was a pitch and went back outside.

It was definitely not a FORCED fumble. It was more like a pass deflection that happened to be a backwards pass.

I was as upset as Fox is about the Vaccaro pick at first. I was furious. However, Vaccaro has already won me over. We desperately needed a guy like this on the team. He plays mean, and he plays fast. He is around the ball damn near every time, and he tackles well. I think this kid has even more potential than Jones, who I think will be a really good pass rusher. Vaccaro will make some big time plays for us this season.

This is what I posted on draft night after someone posted his highlight videos:

LINK

"After watching the highlights this is what I liked:

Hard Hitter
Very good read and react
Sound wrap tackler and seems to have strong hands to trip guys up when needed.
Solid looking hands on ints
Great closing speed
Can cause fumbles with hit power or using hands
Gets hands up very quick when around the ball
Follows the ball very well in the air
Seems to be good at sticking to receivers"

All these seem to be holding true at the NFL level.
