What are your favorite (current) football nicknames?

I've seen a few things lately wherein the media is bemoaning the current state of football nicknames. It got me to thinking about it, and I'm thinking I agree. I've heard a few nicknames taht I REALLY liked, but for the most part they're just basically abbreviations of a players name ("A-Rod", "Big Ben", "S-Jax"), and that's laaaaammme. I figured I'd get a list of the best nicknames we've heard for some players, and even propose some new ones (SBNation visitors, feel welcome to chime in!)

 

The best ones that I've heard that I don't see in common usage are:

Isaac Redman - "The Myth"

Terrell Suggs - "Horseapple"

Antonio Cromartie - "Football ODB" or "The Orphanage"

 

Jump in, spread the word, let's get this ball rolling. This is our fault, fans - we can't be slacking on our creativity here.
