OK, so we know J.J. Watt has several nicknames: "Megawatt" and "The Milkman," for example.

Others we have: Andre Johnson as "Dre" and Jonathan Joseph as "JJoe." Oh, and Antonio Smith as "The Ninja."

But what about the other players? Shouldn't they have nicknames, too?

My suggestions:

Whitney Mercilus: Lamborghini Merci
Bryan Braman: The Headless Horseman
Arian Foster: The Philosopher
Alan Ball/Shiloh Keo/sometimes Kareem Jackson: Burn Ward

Let me know what some of your nicknames are.

I think nicknames develop naturally.

Matt "stump the Schwab"

That was made up by Chris Berman. I think creating nicknames for guys can work sometimes and not work other times. I think there are just some players that don't need nick names. Some players, like Mercilus, have great names already.
