    We never came up with one over the last few years, and I guess for good reason. Do we have anything folks or what? I say we get it started and give the defense something to ride behind and get pride in, rather than waiting for them to do something. Believe me, this defense will be a TON better with Smith at the lead. Even if they would have stayed in the 3-4, the guy has more intensity and shows more accountability than the Capers regime. How bout, "The make you Bleed, Stampede...lol":hunter: .........:chicken:

    well, the last 3 years, it could've been sieve or caulender or leaky or Pepe LePew. I'm drawing a complete blank for this year cuz I have no idea what kind of identity they're gonna have. Might wanna wait til a few regular season games have gone by then retry

    Houston, again.
    It's a bit early for a name IMO as they haven't set a personality yet, but how about the "Hounds" then everyone in the stands can yell "Loose the Hounds!". War Dogs isn't to bad either.

    There's a good reason why the Texans have gone without a nickname for their 'D'.................noone would want the name out there for ridicule. I am very hopeful for a significant upgrade of play by this year's team. But, at the same time, before a "tough" name is applied, "weeny" performance needs to be proven a thing of the past.

    That said, I'll offer up "The [Houston] Hit Squad"

    While I certainly hope we have a defense that earns the right to a nickname, I hesitate to call them anything at this point when we haven't seen them play a down. I'd hate to come up with some kickass nic only to have them struggle to live up to it.

    Although something with "stampede" would be kind of cool, especially if that's the way they make opposing offenses feel.

    I agree with most we need to see them play with our own eyes before giving them a nickname.(but if the man can play like we think he can I'm throughing out Marios Marauders.(I think that how to spell it)

    How about "A defense that has the potential to not suck" for now and then see what happens? :ok:

    I kind of like "winners." But we have yet to earn that right.

    It's all Carr's fault.

    Very nice. I agree whole heartedly, but it is July and we don't have anything else to talk about. How about "The Mad Cow Disease?"

    You do realize that the Texan's defense already has an old nickname that needs to be shed before you add a new one?

    And stampede could be taken the other way round! :D

    I'd prefer a more simple name like, "The Wall :brickwall ".

    Or, perhaps, "The Welcoming Committee :mad:".

    And, of course, if we play like last year, "The SOS Squad :sos:".

    The underlined could have been used the last couple of years, too. Would it be way to cheesy just to bring back the House of Pain? Maybe we could call MW "The Dentist" cuz those guys know how to deliver PAIN. Can't believe I just typed that!!!!
