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

    "
    Fiedler did not have the arm strength of Tannehill, but overall he was a much better QB."

    Attack the Person, Not the Ideas:






    Attack the person in some way. For example:
    • Attack their expertise, questioning their qualifications or experience
    • Comment on their inability to make a good argument
    • Attach them to discredited others

    Example


    You are not qualified to make such a statement.
    You would say that, wouldn't you.
    And who do you think is going to believe you.

    Attacking the Person is a form of distraction, forcing them into defense and away from their argument.

    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.
    agreed!

    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!

    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.".
