All-name and All-nickname Football Team


Okay, gang. Let's try to put together the most fearsome and talented team ever, based on names and nicknames alone.

This team would feature players whose names and/or nicknames would indicate how tough or fast or amazing they really are. They'd have a granite-solid offensive lineman like Walter Rock (Redskins), and their defensive line might include Steve Smear (Colts) and Mean Joe Greene.

 

This is a team where'd you'd choose a guy of modest talent like Quarterback Sam "The Rifle" Etcheverry (Cardinals) over John Elway, simply because the nickname indicates The Rifle had a fearsome arm. Got it?

 

And don't be afraid to name guys who get filthy and dirty, or whose nicknames are so bizarre they should be honorable mentions...even if they don't make the team. Like Joey Smellie, a running back on the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, who was featured on a CFL broadcast last year. Or the immortal return man and scatback Vitamin T. Smith, who played for the Rams back in the early '50's.


Let's get started:

OL: Walter Rock

TE:

RB:

QB:

WR: Elroy "Crazy Legs" Hirsch, Mike Quick,

DL: Mean Joe Greene, Steve Smear

LB: Steve Stonebreaker

DB: Dick "Night Train" Lane
