Does DK Metcalf need a nickname?
Mon Oct 05, 2020 7:31 pm
  • DK Metcalf. The stud. A legend in the making.

    We've all seen his incredible 6 pack. His gravity defying pre game workouts. His trail blazing speed.

    He's a first ballot hall of famer in the infancy stages of his career. He will go down as a top 5 receiver all time.
    To prepare for this inevitability, I find it of the up most importance to get DK Metcalf a nickname, coined by the fans.

    Calvin Johnson was "Megatron." Terrell Owens was "T.O." Jerry Rice was....dang it never mind that.

    What nickname would you suggest for DK Metcalf? Or is DK a cool enough name to call him?

    I was thinking "Kong"
    That awful MNF announcer last season called him "Decaf Metcalf" which was funny.

  • I hear DK and the first thing I think of is Donkey Kong, but I don't think that's a good choice. Decaf is funny, but hardly accurate the way he bowls through people. Beast would be great if that weren't already taken. The dude is so huge, maybe Sasquatch?

  • Jerhawk, I read your title and right away thought of 6 Pack...but pretty sure he wouldn't buy into that one. You did a good job on that OP. Downright stylized.

  • DK sound fine to me, T.O. had some fleeting names that people sued on occasion also, but it was always T.O, so DK is fine, it stands on it's own also.

    Batman... the Dark Knight? Correct initials, except it just doesn't have quite the right ring to it.

  • Not a big fan of these, but if I had to choose, I would go with Deke

    Just to piss off all the people who are he isn't a good route runner. :twisted:






    And yes, I know it's too close to Zeke etc. That's not the point.

  • I'm good with DK. But something like The Punisher or something that implies he knocks fools out who try to stop him. He's a fricken beast.

    DK's nickname. Not even the speed of sound can keep up with him.

  • Guys, we all know his nickname will come from Russ in an interview. Somebody will ask him about his relationship with DK and Russ will gush about how awesome he is. Somewhere in his praise of DK, he will call him something. I’m thinking like “Black Hulk” or something. And if it’s “Black Hulk” I say we shorten it to “Bulk”. “Bulk” Metcalf. Has a nice ring to it...right?
