The Great Matt Ryan Nickname Debate And A Call To Arms

A while ago, intrepid and swashbuckling commenter Hamburger put his considerable nickname-crafting skills to the test. The fanpost is still hanging around over on the side, but enough time has passed after I posted a poll with a few suggestions that I think we can wrap this up. Matt Ryan's new nickname is....

Well, it's Matt Ryan's old nickname. Because the people have spoken, I will mostly stick to calling our new franchise quarterback Matty Ice. This is by no means a hard and fast requirement on the rest of you, so I think the best course of action is for everyone to just call Matt Ryan whatever the hell they want. The only thing I ask is that you don't use the string of obscenities you'll be shouting at the television when he gets planted in the turf because Sam Baker has arms like a T. Rex. Thanks.

I'm also putting out the call for nicknames for other members of the 2008 draft class, many of whom having incredibly generic names. If there's one thing I have a weakness for, it's obnoxiously bestowing people I've never met with nicknames which could stick forever. So, you know, get back to the laboratory and see what you can come up with.
