New Defense Nickname


We've had some of the best nicknames ever... Steel Curtain... Blitzburgh... good stuff. but every now and then you need to reload. You just can't keep calling a team "Steel Curtain" or what have you... every defense needs its own identity.

So... let's go, BTSC... whacha got?

I want to put this out there:

Steel Kryptonite

 

Why? I was thinking about in 2008 how every QB came into town with a great QB rating and left as mere mortals...

It seemed like it was every week: Phillip Rivers comes to town with a QB rating of 105... he goes 15/26 with 2 INTs and 0 TDs... Cincy didn't have Palmer, so they hardly count... but then NE comes in and we get Matt Cassel, who if you recall had just posted back to back 300 yard passing games and was the highest ranked QB in the AFC... He went 19/39 with two INTs and 0 TDs. Tony Romo comes to town with a 100+ QB Rating... he throws 3 INTs (1 TD) and left with a pedestrian QB rating of about 69...

It just seemed to happen every week -- guys come in as Superman, and leave as Clark Kent. Not just QBs... how many running backs had their 100 yard game streak snapped?

Now this year...? I was hearing playoff talk for Atlanta. Matty Ice was entering his third year, and set to join the Elite QB ranks. Michael Turner had lost some weight and was set for a break out year. Antonio Gates was going to explode.... 

They looked more like Jimmy Olsen than Clark Kent by the time they left... but you get the idea.

It might be too early for this nickname, and I hate to jinx them... but if VY looks lost and confused, and Chris Johnson gets 100 yards or less... I like the name.

Also, I know folks are looking for a nickname for the rushing tandem of Harrison and Woodley... What do you think of:

Yinz and Yangz?

 

(Too cute?)
