We Have Nicknamed Bills DT Kyle Williams. Deal With It.

Late last week, we talked about how awesome Kyle Williams is in this post. Though he only statistically recorded four tackles in the Buffalo Bills' 14-12 win over the Detroit Lions, Williams dominated at the point of attack for a fourth straight game, and has emerged as one of the NFL's best defensive linemen.

Kyle Williams deserves to go to the Pro Bowl. We are going to start a little social media campaign to accelerate the recognition Williams is starting to get, but needs more of. In order to do that, we needed to give Kyle a nickname. After receiving a ton of excellent submissions on Twitter this afternoon, by popular demand, we'll now only be referring to Kyle Williams in this space as:

Meatball.

Why Meatball? Meatballs are versatile. They are delicious. They are a hearty, workmanlike foodstuff capable of being a great side dish or a highly underrated entree. Buffalo's Meatball is exactly what he sounds like: a mean ball of meat that will smack you in the mouth, and then flex when he does. (But for real, it's sort of the perfect nickname.)

The Twitter hashtag #MeatballForProBowl is ready for your support. Torell Troup is now a Meatball sub. Carson Palmer's forecast on Sunday? Cloudy with a chance of Meatball.
