    Yeah, that's how he got that nickname. Too big to be just the Fridge. :lmao2:

    5Stars - Yep, it was during a game and the camera showed a snickers wrapper lying on the field. John Madden was doing the game and he loved that. He kept saying 'Ol Nate had to have a snack...

    Wasn't Clint Longley named "The Mad Bomber"? If not, I do know he had a moniker, but, I cannot remember what it was!

    He took on Okoye in the hole and knocked him backwards. Okoye was 240 Atwater was at most 215 or 220. Atwater was a safety for those that don't know.

    I think some people tried to give him that tag but LaMonica <sp> was first and most famous for it before Kenny "the Snake" Stabler took his job.

    BTW Kenny was "The Snake" long bofore Jake Plummer came along.

    I think you are correct that he also shared that name.

    I had come up with one for Quincy a few years back. "MadQ Disease" - claiming that all Carter Lovers had MadQ disease.

    They should have named Clint Longly "The Mad Puncher" for slugging Roger in the mouth when Roger was taking off his jersey and could not defend himself!

    Longly slugged him, then ran like hell to his dorm room, grabbed some of his stuff and took off! He even left his rattlesnake in the dorm room! :lmao:

    You think 'silent assassin' is a bit redundant? I mean, the opposite would equal 'noisy assassin', being noisy probably isn't an asset in the assassination business, kind of an Inspector Clouseau of assassins.

    Isn't Jack Tatum's book 'They Call Me Assassin'?

    Actually Don Merideth was no longer playing for the Cowboys by the time Alworth go here. I don't know who gave Alworth the nickname but he had it while still in San Diego.

    Alworth came to the Cowboys in a three-way trade that sent Lance Rentzel to the LA Rams (I forget who San Diego got) after he (Rentzel) got in some trouble here in Dallas. Rentzel was a WR who wore #19 same as Alworth and he DID play with Merideth but I forget his nickname.
