Nickname Series - Input Phase

I was writing a response to a post about our newest Mammoth of a player - Michael Jasper and I realized that it will be easy to find him a cool nickname.  When we came up with Meatball for Kyle Williams I found it was so appropriate for him. 

I thought it would be fun to write a series this week to find nicknames for our new rookies.  The way I propose to proceed is to start with an "input" phase where everyone can post their proposed nickname for those 3 players then I'll tally up the suggested options (as best I can) and then I'll re-post a survey with the top 4 options proposed.

I will do this for Dareus, Sheppard & Jasper (Unless you guys want to expand it)

Marcel Dareus: His great character and gentle nature, positive attitude towards life but yet the strenght and aggression of a bear when he's in action.  I think a very fitting name could be:  Balou

The simple bear necessities of life!

Kelvin Sheppard:  The way this guy can run downhill and attack the play along with his sure tackling, one option could be Thumper.  Then again he is known for his passion for the game, hard work and great leadership skills on the field making me think that another good option could be Wally, short for Wallace.  Mel's character in Braveheart - William Wallace, a leader of men!

Michael Jasper:  From every account, he is a huge man.  Probably going to be one of the larger in the league.  I can imagine him at NT, it will be like hitting The WallWhen you hit the wall, you ain't going no further!

 

I hope I get decent participation in this post, it would be nice to give our new guys a cool nickname!

 

And I had forgot to add this link to a video about Dareus, it's exciting to know we've got this guy for the next 10+years!  What a monster!!

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
