Everyone that's thinking up nicknames has a very dumb idea.

I feel that I have some experience in the matter, being as I am of the
Coach Gundy school of "I'm a MAN! I'm 40!"

Here's the thing about nicknames; They are earned. They are worn on, and
worn in. And, they are worn out. Very few people earn a nickname in a few weeks.

It usually takes a while.

Lets just see what this guys is holding before we start doling out nicknames.

ETA; **** you guys I'm drunk.

Hey may be drunk, but the man is right. You guys can't piggy back off RG3 because it's hip and now. Tannehill will earn his stripes.

The most bad-ass nick name I can think of is "the Sherrif" for peyton manning. And you are absolutly right, it is completly earned, not given.

Honestly, the only one I can see ever sticking is simply "RT".

Tannehill is very good at pre-snap reads ... He looks like he has a "Chess Players" mentality, So I figured why not call him "Check Mate"

Let's look at a few things:



While I understand your point, it's the first time the Dolphins have drafted a QB in the 1st round since 1983!
16 or so (I lost count) bums minus Pennington have come and gone. Nothing but boring football for the better part of a decade.
Boring AND losing football.


Now, we have our franchise QB, and you choose to piss on our parade because we want to give him a nickname? Who cares if it's "too early?" You were drunk from alcohol, and we're on a Tannehill high. You can't piss on this parade no matter how hard you try!

Tan the Man! :woot:

Tannehill

Although, I do have a nickname for Philbin. My GF came up with it this weekend watching the fake punt in the 4th quarter. She said, "Damn he's got a face of stone, he should be called Joe "poker face" Philbin.".

Let the rednecks have their fun, if they're not watching a cow give birth they're coming up with nicknames.
