What is your favorite insult nickname in league history?
By - Jarvis28000
Chris Chandler spent so much time on IR we called him Crystal Chandalier.
Marcus the Glass Cannon
NFL is truly lacking in it's injury-prone nicknames.
NBA got Day-to-dayvis, CP3-6 weeks, MRI Stoudamire...
Very few NFL "glass player" jokes.
MRI Stoudamire is so damn great how have I not heard it before
Matt Glassford was a thing for a while or "China Doll" before he hulked up his shoulders and started for like 6-7 straight years
I dunno. The man separated his shoulder and was screaming in pain as he won a game. Don't feel comfortable making fun of him for durability.
Any and all variations of Mr Big Chest
Mr. Broad Context
Mr best comments
Mr Best Cognomen.
Mr Butt Chug
A+. Goddamnit I love these comment chains every time they come up. It's such a versatile meme template.
Mr Bye Canton
That shit is always hilarious
Mr. Back Cum will always be the best iteration
Thank you for this. I've recently started following the NFL and this subreddit, and I for the life of me couldn't understand where MBC came from. 🙏
It came from Brown himself, during his split with the steelers he claimed to rename himself as “Mr Big Chest” so anything that fits the MBC acronym is used to describe Brown
Mr Blessed Clarification
I was just sitting here scrolling these comments and this straight made me burst out laughing
He actually said "Mr. Big Checks" but it sounded like chest and everyone ran with that
Mr Bountiful Callers
Not even an insult at this point, just always hilarious. Any "MBC" jokes on r/nfl and "LeX" or "LeMickey" jokes on r/nba always kill me.
Let's be honest, calling something "mickey" or "lemickey" is just hilarious even if it doesn't make sense.
Round mound of touchdown
He Ate Me
RIP Hefty Lefty
RIP, Battleship Lorenzen
BBQ (Big Beautiful Quarterback)
I thought we were talking about insults?
The Abominable Throwman
Alex Van Pelt was known as Pil by all his teammates.
Eddie "Business Decision" Jackson. Plenty more have earned that nickname but I saw that on Twitter a bit ago
As a bears fan I hate this one so much... but it’s hilarious
I always liked Kellen Dick Fingers Davis
He doesn't make business decisions.... He tries to tackle, just sucks at it lmao
Dude was getting flung around last year like he weighed 130
I haven’t watched a lot of bears games admittedly, but I thought he had a great rookie year? Not following that up well?
He had a great 2018, then Pagano decided it would be a great idea to put one of the best coverages safeties in the league in the box, when the his sus tackling would absolutely never be exploity
Why is this his nickname just out kid curiosity?
The "Business Decision" is to play low-effort when attempting to tackle a ball carrier in order to avoid injury and thus, future financial losses
The Pillsbury Throwboy, The Hefty Lefty, and Captain Fatfuck are a couple of good ones.
RIP Jared Lorenzen
The round mound of touchdown
The Round Mound of Touchdown!
I love the guy though and on any given Sunday he can be the greatest... Or dogshit
On his best day he's the greatest of all time, on his worst he's the worst of all time.
When you think about it.......it only makes him greater.
If you don’t love me at my fitztragic you don’t deserve my fitzmagic
Less Welker for Cole Beasley lol.
Oh my god. I named my FFL team Cole-atteral Damage when this was staring me in the face
He hasn’t played yet, there’s still time to change it.
I have called Matt Patricia “Epic Meal Time” for the last several years
That was a fun channel
and bacon strips
Smother it in Jack Daniels.
This will never not be the right answer. So simple, yet the most embarrassing award for a football player to win. All hail the one and only NVP, ~~Mitch Trubisky~~ Mick Truboosky
What makes it so funny is the fact they lost the game
Josh allen injured. Mitch takes over and bills squeak into the wild card.
Oh. Shit! Its on nickelodeon. Bills lose 31-28. Mitch is once again the NVP.
Time to slime
So simple. So elegant. So cutting.
I’ve always been partial to Frat Stafford with his early look.
Bungles is pretty good I have to admit
Love/hate the username
It's from the heart
Took me a sec to remember the actual team name
Will he Goof or Go-off!
Dr Jared and Mr Goof
I thought Jared Gawful was more funny and had a better cadence.
Any of the 10 Carson Wentz name puns like Carson Wince.
Eagles fans call him Ginger Judas
Fat Randy (Bullock)
Dude ain’t even that overweight… just is compared to average kicker lol
Mizzou has a kicker right now that they call the Thicker Kicker.
Captain Fat Fuck, leader of men
Insulting and endearing
I love this because it sounds like a really mean grade schooler came up with it.
This is it.
Nathan Peterman the GOAT
Good ol' Petermeme
every bad mobile qb is Scam Newton to me
2020 Cam was Scam Newton
DooDoo Shit-Poopster makes me laugh every single time without fail
I can't believe I forgot that one, it's absolute gold
Why am i laughing so hard at this dumbass name LMAO
I am an ADULT. I should not still be laughing at this!! But here I am
It took me a bit to figure out who this was until I said it out loud. Now I've been giggling for a solid four minutes.
hardest i’ve laughed at reddit comment in a long time
Not as shitty but I laugh hysterically every time I remember that AB called him Boo-Boo Shoester
The way Troy Aikman says "That football team down there in Washington", then it became reality.
I wonder if he burst out laughing when he found out they were going with that for a year lmao
Does the irony of Danny Dims count?
Danny Cents is also up there
Legit couldn't think of his actual name after reading this
I think Michael Thomas has earned enough respect to not be called slant boy anymore. He's slant man now
You had me in the first half, not gonna lie.
Legion of Room last year for the seahawks
Legion of Whom
Joe Staley’s kid called us the toots, and it’s objectively (like literally unarguable) the best insult nickname in league history
It’s true. It’s basically standard on r/49ers
I have such a hard time being mad at it
Joe Staleys kid is a savage
I'm old, but Elvis "Toast" Patterson (Giants DB from the 80s) cuz he always got burned.
Muscle Hamster, not really an insult but Doug Martin hated it and it stuck despite his best efforts. Just an adorable nickname.
It really is a great nickname if he just embraced it. I understand why it would feel disrespectful though
The New Orleans Aint’s was pretty good
It's ice hockey, but Edit: Rob Niedermayer was hurt so much they called him "Special Nieds" for a while.
Edit: I am an asshole. It was Rob Niedermayer, not Scott. Sorry to the HOFer.
* Anthony Day-to-Davis
* Joel WebEmbiid
* CP3-6 Weeks
Never Nervous Pervis (Ellison) got hurt so much they called him Out of Service Pervis.
Damn, that’s pretty brutal.
Granted, I didn't grow up on Boston at the time, but you are telling me that Hall of Famer Scott Neidermeyer who played 17 years as full time player in the league and won more cups than had seasons under 70 games was known for his injuries?
People are indeed assholes
Fucking hell 😂😂😂
The Aints. Half this sub wasn't even born in the dark days of Saints Football (using that phrase is generous), when fans would show up with paper bags on their heads, exclusively to boo their team, while the road to the stadium was littered with the bodies of drunks who had succumbed to the lure of extremely cheap and shitty beer.
Hail to the Deadskins!
I remember hearing a ref call a player garbage ass
Rain City Bitch Pigeons
And Eric Ebron is Droptimus Prime
I liked to say last year that Pittsburgh was fielding bedrop and dropsteady
I love the simple effectiveness of "Fat Randy" Bullock
Doug "Muscle Hamster" Martin
Philip "Marmalard" Rivers
DeSean "Springtime for Hitler" Jackson
DeSean "The Birdreich" Jackson
The Birdreich is the real winner from that controversy
God dammit lmao
Quasi Throw-do for Kellen Moore
Kenny Anderson from the Bengals was called Candle Light by his teammates. One blow and he was out.
were people sucking him off a lot or...?
I’ve always been fond of the Rainy City Bitch Pigeons
You talking about my Shithawks?
Lol that and SF 4 and 9ers
Excuse me, we were the 49IRs last season.
I remember Forty Whiners from ESPN way back in the day.
Elvis "Toast" Patterson, Giants DB in the 80s. It's been used since, but this was the first time it really stuck.
I've always enjoyed "Kizer So-so" from Bill Simmons' and Cousin Sal's podcast
It's only mildly insulting, but I always liked Sammy Sleeves
The “rebuilding since 1959 Detroit Lions “
My Bears fan friend always called Mitch Trubisky “bitch you missed me”
Just End The Season
Teddy Bridgewater, but Bridgey Treadwater is the bridge QB, franchise isn't getting anywhere, just treading water.
Teddy Two Yards
Blake " The BOAT" Bortles
NBA but when Barkley called AD “street clothes” I lost it.
“Burnt Toast” any CB on the Eagles roster from 2012-2018, specifically Bradley Fletcher
He’s one Popeyes biscuit away from being a tight end
Eddie “Cheeseburger” Lacy
Also, Feast Mode.
I also heard "Cheese Mode"
It was “China food”, and damn man he was dealing with mental health issues.
Or just the simple Fat Eddy
AKA Marshawn Lunch
I hate referring to things as "cursed" but this absolutely fits that description.
Dink and Dak damn you Cowherd
Yeah slantboy is funny as hell but mostly because it bothers him so much
Captain fat fuck
.... leader of men.
You called the man DooDoo Shit-Poopster and I'm laughing.
Best part about it: even if you’ve never heard the nickname, you know exactly who it is.
I hate to admit that I actually loled at this one. I'm a child.
My spell check changed Cowboys to Cobwebs and I've kept it ever since.
That's just our trophy cabinet
Whats a trophy or a cabinet
I spent 2006 to 2013 referring to Gary Kubiak as "Hairy Pube-iak" and I stand by that. The man had shaggy balls, I'm sure of it.
I remember when Matt Hasselbeck started to decline in his last few years with the Seahawks people would call him Matt Fumblesack
The Washington Foreskins
Jim “Chris” Everett.
Terrell "Burnt Toast" Buckley
