With all the great line nicknames or defense nicknames, I think our new O-Line will deserve one.

Any suggestions?

If we could get shirts made up of this, then it gets my vote. If we can put the O-Linemen faces on the Mount Rushmore picture, I am all for it.

If not, I would like the MMC..

Mount Rushmore is pretty cool. So is "Thor's Hammers".
Maybe "Odin's Oxen"?
"Purple Pentagon"(Defenders of the Viking Nation)

"Vault of Valhalla"
Ragnar's Rocks (Ragnarok-the final battle between good and evil)

I think briboy has a point with maybe waiting to see how our O-line does before we go bestowing titles of greatness upon them.....but then again, it IS fun to just let the imagination run wild every now and again.

Minnesota Moving Company is really nice, and so is "Mount RUSH-MORE".

Not too wild about the references to Norse mythology, though, because most people aren't too well versed in it, so it could go over alot of heads. Most people I've talked to don't even know what "Valhalla" is.

The Grape Apes (with a nod of the head to Hanna Barbera)
The Blockheads
Purple Pass Protectors
The RagnaRokkers (I like this one except for the problem I mentioned above)

LOL Okay, I'll leave the name creation to those whose muses haven't abandoned them like mine have.

Umm, I'll wait until I see some production before I give em a nickname.

For example, all the hyping that took place for the Defense last year and the year before that, and it ended up being "Wet Paper Bag" Defense.

Sorry for the negativity there, I normally try to stay positive as much as possible.
