If Ken Griffey Jr. Never existed....

  • Would "The Kid" be a shoe-in for a Russell Wilson nickname? It would sure beat RW3

  • Meh. Nicknames are better when they happen spontaneously.
    49ers webzone: Win or lose, i hope you injure Sherman. Like a serious career ending injury. I don't want him to get paid.
    49ers webzone: noise should not be the overwhelming reason a team is favored. they need to spray noise-damping foam onto the ceiling of that place.

    I agree. That's kinda what made me think of it. In that 3-10 to DC video when Wilson threw a TD the announcer said "The kid has done it again"--or something of that nature. Kinda' made me think that in a different time had there not already been a Seattle icon nicknamed "The Kid" it could've stuck.

  • Good point. I never thought to call him that, but honestly, a baby-faced rookie making veteran plays really makes you think about a nickname like "the kid". Oh well... Hopefully a real nickname will come along for him....

  • If Ken Griffey never existed we probably would still have the Sonics since the Mariners would be in Florida.

  • I like it - on a side note: with alot of local media and teammates referring to him as the "kid", it kind of reminds me of that line in the movie "The Client" , during the courtroom scene where he tells the attorney's " quit referring to me as the child"

  • If Dave Krieg never existed we could call him "Mudbone".

    If Rockhawk never existed we could call him "really handsome but totally not in a gay way".

    See? This game is fun!

  • Russell Wilson is more mature than 90% of the NFL, not to mention most fans. I don't see anything about the guy that makes me think "kid".

    Then Russell "The Little Corporal" Wilson would have been the nickname.

    Rg3 ,LT,T jack, AP,
    Sorry these are initials not nick names .
    The NFL has really no good nicknames right now except
    The red rifle Andy Dalton see that's a nick name.

    Remember the Nigerian nightmare , night train lane, billy white shoes Johnston, flipper Anderson ,the snake . These are nicknames creative and descriptive .
    My nickname is DJ since we really just use initials now a days.

  • I think 2 short is a rad nickname... Maybe 3short.
    I enjoy ruining threads by making them about personal attacks and then commenting about how personal attacks make the other person's argument invalid.

  • Nicknames are for guys with a goofey, light hearted side. Last time I checked Tom Brady, Aaron Rogers and Drew Beeze dont have " nicknames". Aaron Rodgers is sometimes refered to as A Rod but the poser in the NY Yankees uni is the real AROD. If your great in the NFL you dont need a nickname. Griffey was the kid. in BB. That nickname wasnt given to him by Seattle fans....rather a Yankee manager. Man I am feeling my 43 years of age lately. Russel Wilson should be known as Russel Wilson. When any kid in the nataion associates the name Russel with footbal greatness than greatness has been acheived by Russel. Marketing driven nicknames are short lived.


    Stop with the tardery already.
