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"
There it is. Please feel free to add your own.
