So I’m taking a break from studying for my Geology midterm, and I’ve been thinking about this offseason. All-in-all I’m quite pleased, especially with the addition of Tapp. If you haven’t seen Joe_D’s post about the Seahawks fans’ reactions about this deal you should check them out, because I think it speaks to the caliber of the player we got in Tapp.
Now I know this is probably going to be considered going overboard by some, but I think this just solidified us as one of the top defensive lines in the NFL. Tapp is at a breakout age, Cole is beastly, of course, and Bunkley and Patterson are some of the most underrated DTs in the league. The only D line that comes immediately to mind that’s better than ours on paper is the Vikings, possibly with Houston next (although I don’t know who their second rusher and DT are). And of course, all the great defensive lines had cool nicknames, whether it’s the old-school Vikings’ Purple People Eaters or their new group, Shock and AWWE (Allen Williams Williams Edwards), the great lines have attempted the nickname thing.
So my idea is: Let’s do it up. Let’s start something, right here on BGN, that could stick as an Eagles’ legacy. I want to hear some suggestions for a nickname for our potentially stellar defensive line, and then we’ll have a vote on the top names. I know there will be a bunch of haters out there, but why not try? If we, as Eagles fans, refer to our line by the name we vote on, it could very well stick.
Here’s how the process will work: Submit your idea, and then Rec all of the ideas you like. The top 5 rec’d names will go to the voting stage.
Well this was my fun idea to cure some offseason boredom, please don’t hate. We don’t need any more of that right now, its been getting pretty testy here between the bums who keep posting and the people getting pissed off at them, so let’s keep this civil and have fun!
