Lions of the " Roaring " Twenties...



I was a little bored.  At home watching a show on the gangsters of the twenties.  Most had a unique nickname.  Some good and some bad.  That got me thinking about our Lions.  And what nicknames would they have if they were gangsters of the roaring twenties.  So I came up with a list of our( most likely ) starting 22 players.

Matthew Stafford - " The Kid "

Jahvid Best- " Shakes "  Juke would have been good too.

Jerome Felton - " The Hammer "

Calvin Johnson- " The Don "  Sorry but Megaton just would have not made sense for the time

Nate Burleson - " Quick Nate "

Brandon Pettigrew - " Gravy "  With the other offensive weapons.  Pettigrew in just gravy on top of it

Jeff Backus - " Happy George "  Every pic I have seen of Jeff.  He always have a big dumb guy smile

Rob Sims - " The Wall "  I hope this name sticks in a good way

Dom Raiola - " Bowling Ball "  He looks like a bowling ball

Stephen Peterman- " Angry Bob "  Look at his pic on the Lions yahoo page and tell me he does not look like an angry Bob

Cherilus Godser- " The Bull-Dodser "  Only if this were true

Cliff Arvil - " The Anvil "

Sammie Lee Hill - " Cheeseburger Hill "

Ndamukong Suh - " The Enforcer "

Klye Vanden Bosch - " Curly "  Three Stooges reference

Julian Peterson- " Big Balls Mahoney "  Just seems like he would have big balls....

DeAndre Levy - " Knuckles "  Every good gangster outfit has a " Knuckles "

Zach Follett- " Smacks "  Cus he smacks you the fuck out

Louis Delmas - " Psycho "  He gets that crazy look in his eyes

Amari Spievey - " Five Fingers "

Chris Houston - " Burn Notice "  Lets hope this is one of those ironic nicknames.  Like when you call a fat guy "slim"
