Deacon Jones invented the sack, introduced the face-slap to pro football and was part of the "Fearsome Foursome."

He also managed to turn an impressive TV triple crown, making guest appearances on "Bewitched," "The Odd Couple" and "The Brady Bunch."

On "The Brady Bunch" Jones helped coach Peter Brady's youth football team and ended up teaching Peter and his pals that male singers were not sissies.

"Glee" 40 years ahead of its time.

Jones died Tuesday at 74.

And no one ever accused him of being a sissy.

RIP Sack Master.
