people are like "OMG, they can fight???!!?" just because the konoha genins get all the scenes does not mean they are the strongest people in konoha. seriously, 2 tired, chakra drained jounins encountered the sound 4 in a forest, and the sound 4 felt it necessary to use CS to fight them, not to mention that after the fight they looked pretty tired. see what I am saying? only two minorly important jounin, who where tired and outnumbered 2/4(or 5, since sakon is actually two people), made the sound four nervous enough to use CS, and actually apparently did pretty well. keep in mind that sasuke, after that impressvie showing in the chunin exam, got owned by them while he was 100%, and they did not use their CS. seriously, people need to understand that not only the heavily shown nins have skills, lesser known ones can be just as impressive(kishi has been pretty good with this so far, usually writers give all lesser knows stormtrooper syndrome).
