WR group's new nickname
Thu May 29, 2014 6:22 am
  • They need a nickname to accompany them. Yes, another nickname thread, as if there wasn't enough. Since the WRs are getting faster, they need a nickname. I propose the following:

    Legion of Zoom
    The Sonic Boomers
    Speedy Zoomers

    Contribute. Discuss. Argue.

    Nicknames are earned and just happen (spontaneous). Not every position group needs one imo.

  • I agree with ever position group has earned a nickname.

    That said, my suggestion is Jaywalkers.

  • Can't just assign a nickname. That's the whole point of nicknames. And we've already had a couple for them: Pedestrians, Appetizers.

    However, this is an interesting tweet in this regard: https://twitter.com/DougBaldwinJr/status/324584086465294336

    I know you'd get flagged for this, but I would LOVE to see a TD celebration where when one of the WRs gets a TD, they stand in that pose that's on the sign above, and one WR lays on the ground in front and 2 other WRs make the "triangle shape" over their head....lol — my life would be complete if this happened.

  • No reference to Sonics unless it has a derogatory connotation to what Bennett and Stern do in private.


    I actually like Pedestrian. People Like Cris Carter need to keep their mouths shut.

    Or how about- "Cretins" Thats what Sherman called Skip Bayless when he went to the cleaners on him on First Take Last Summer.

    Basically it should be a shot at someone that picked us to lose every single week, or talked smack for no apparent reason. So here is my list of those people along with the names or connotations

    Pete Prisco of CBS- has picked us to lose just about every road game and home game for that matter unless we play Jacksonville, so maybe "losers" is fitting?


    Bayless- "Cretin" as called by Sherman

    Cris Carter- Pedestrians, Appetizers

    Stephen A Smith ( with Bayless, talks drivel just about every day, and picked to fall and fall hard in both Saint games, Super Bowl and NFC Title game. And each time, they kept saying they were dead wrong, but the very next game, kept picking against us, so Im sure we can find something.

    Trent Dilfer- Im sure the list is long.

  • Appetizers.

    First of all, the WRs are obviously not the main course; that has to be Marshawn Lynch, even Dougie knows that. Secondly, Appetizers are amazing! I don't see any negative connotation to calling someone an appetizer. They're typically the most unique and interesting thing on the menu. There's times when I won't even order an entree, I'll just get myself two or three appetizers. Kinda like Super Bowl XLVIII...

  • Can you imagine Raible calling the passing game now?

    "Three pedestrian set. Russell takes the snap, rolls right, pumps left, now sets to throw... He's got a man open down on the far sideline! It's Richardson, out-running his cover! He's going to take the pass and go all the way to the end zone! TOUCHDOWN SEAHAWKS!! Can you believe it? Another pedestrian gets it done today!
