Shouldn't there be some sort of timetable for when players are allowed to get nicknames. The guy plays one good game (well 2 if you count the Bills game last year) and all of a sudden he's got 50 nicknames.

ps. no i'm not a bitter non-owner. he helped me win week 1 too!

Anyone that has watched him played at all should just understand why he already has a nickname. He definately earned his nickname during the preseason. I even read comparisons to Barry Sanders a couple news sites after some of his moves.

Well Peyton Manning holds the NFL record for most TD passes and we're not calling him TDP or some other witty acronym. Antonio Gates holds the record for most TD receptions by a TE and he doesn't have any cool nickname.

You nickname people need to hurry up and come up with some good nicknames for those two!

Passer Peyton. Antonio Power Forward Gates. Gates Motel.... i'm obviously not as good at this as some of you.

Well when Payton changes his name to something cool like Willie then maybe he will earn himself the right of a nickname. Until then he will have to live with the fact that he has a girly name.

Damn right. For that matter I think Marcel Shipp and Ashley Lelie shouldn't even be in the NFL with those names, they should go open a salon or something.

On Willie Parker, people were giving him nicknames back in mid-preseason, his name just seems to lend itself to it.

Ok the Barry Sanders comparison is the cherry on top. Now these are the exact conversations from last year...did someone go a dredge up all those Quetin Griffin threads and replace the name?
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!
