    That's probably my favorite too. Do any current players have really good nicknames? The best one I can think of off the top of my head is Bob "The Hitman" Sanders, although Bob has about 5 other nicknames as well (not trying to be a homer here, I just honestly have not heard many nicknames in this era).

    Roy31 Hall Of Famer

    Primetime... Not only because its a great nickname but because the guy was probably the best Cornerback in the history of the NFL.

    Just thought of a good modern nickname, Torry "Big Game" Holt.
  4. PSID412USM

    PSID412USM Pro Bowler

    The only man to have 2 nicknames

    Deion Sanders - Primetime & Neon
  5. RedskinsNo.1

    RedskinsNo.1 R.I.P Sean Taylor

  6. PSID412USM

    PSID412USM Pro Bowler

    Best one on ESPN 2K5 was Ty 'I fought the law and the law won' Law.

    Uh, he's not even the only Sanders with multiple nicknames. Bob Sanders has at least 3 that I can think of off the top of my head: "Black Bob", "The Hitman", and "The Eraser".

    I always used to like Webster 'Lock up your daughters' Slaughter, and Lester 'The Molester' Hayes. Ed 'too tall' Jones is my favourite of all time though.
  12. Platoon 86

    Platoon 86 Loony

    William "Bubba" Paris, that named cracked me up.

    what about the Vikings Defence of the 70's "the Purple People Eaters" now know by Bears fans as "The Purple BellEnd Eaters" (cocksuckers..:DIRTY08: )
  16. RedskinsNo.1

    RedskinsNo.1 R.I.P Sean Taylor

    we had a TE (1987-91) who's real name is Cap Boso #86...:cool:

    talking of TE's how could I forget the great #80 Jim "ROBO COP' Thronton (1988-92)
  18. Matt314hew

    Matt314hew Mr. Impossible

    The Bus due to his running over everyone.

    Tommy "Turn Over" Maddox / Tommy "Gun" Maddox ~ I hated the man, so that is why I like turn over.

    Gotta love the Fridge.

    Slash Stewart for his ability to play multiple positions and be a threat, until his coach screwed him up from his running rule.

    I cannot stand that man.
  20. Garnett

    Garnett Gritt Tuff

    As mentioned, twinky "Night Train" Lane is my all time favorite. Plus the fact that they had to ban clotheslining as a form of tackling because of him adds to the aura.
