What sounds good for Davenport? He needs a nickname, and who better to give him one? :tt02: Some have suggested that he "hammers it in", another suggested his jersey # (which is ironically close to 4x4), others relating to a Truck (which is smaller than a bus, but in the same family. So what do ya'll like?

I yield all references to "dump" after how he has been playing in the short time he's been here........Welcome to the Steelers, 4x4!!!! 4Wheel Drive Davenport!!!!

I like Dump truck to symbolize how he dumps defenders on their arses.

It's great to be a Steeler this morning!!!!
:coffee: :computer:

I love the 4x4 nickname - it's a perfect fit! :tt02:

he is going to be very valuable in the future.

No - that's Brett Keisel's nickname. Keisel the Deisel. :smile:

4X4 sounds good, plus he wears #44.

10-16-2006, 10:27 AM
Why not call him magnum as in .44 magnum...... just a thought

10-16-2006, 10:32 AM
Voted for 4x4...can't really argue against that, even though I liked the dump truck name too.

Eh, didn't know that. I hate rhyming nicknames anyways, alliteration or cleverness is better in my opinion.

I actually like that, that is the "clever" stuff I am talking about.

I would like Magnum added to the poll, if not I guess 4x4 is second best, three syllables is pushing the "roll off the tongue" aspect of a good nickname.

Davenport looked sharp yesterday. Hopefully this guy will continue to grow and become a successful part of our offense.

How about 4 x Port?


10-16-2006, 03:36 PM
I'd add Magnum to the poll if I could, as that's another great one! Those who like it have to put it in their post, and we'll add up all the votes for it at the end of the poll :thumbsup:

Those who prefer that to one they already voted for can say so in a post, and the one voted for will be deducted.

magnum is a good idea can i change my vote?

10-16-2006, 03:47 PM
Make a new poll

10-16-2006, 03:48 PM
Magnum is a cute nickname, but I like the 4x4 a little better, so I'm sticking with my vote. :smile:

Make a new poll

Sure, I can do that--is there anyway possible to delete a whole thread? If it can't be deleted, you can change your vote to anything else you like--just make sure you let me know so I can tally all the changes :)

He has one already in Dookie.

10-16-2006, 04:26 PM
I originally started calling him Mini-Bus yesterday.

But That would get old for him REAL fast.

10-16-2006, 04:33 PM
DJ Gallo on ESPN Page 2 mentioned the "Dump Truck" in his article today lol


10-16-2006, 05:34 PM
He has one already in Dookie.

I've heard him called that too--it's just that so many had written posts suggesting other names, that perhaps a new one would fit better? But if everyone still likes that one, it could be added to the poll too--I'm open to any and all suggestions! :smile:

10-16-2006, 05:44 PM
I think I'll call him Davenport.
