    I was checking out some tweets last night and came across a couple from Connor Barwin that asked fans to come up with a name for our defense.

    His favorite was Bulls on Parade.

    Others tossed out there ranged from okay, Steel Blue Curtain, to terrible, Texans Hold' Em.

    What nickname would you give our defense?

    Right now, I'm still adjusting from their transition of zero's to hero's. Not sure if I've fully reached a point of familiarity to post up an adequate nickname, but...

    I think the BIGGEST attribute that has made them successful, finally, is Wade Phillips - SOB.

    Sounds corny, but "SOB-Fense"

    I'm sure more than a few Texan opponents have muttered the term SOB this season.

    Yeah, that was my favorite too.

    It seems like with nicknames, if it isn't awesome, you're better off without one.

    That's been used with the NY Giants...

    Naming a D should be after a few seasons of domination... not after being the laughing stock of the NFL last year and the best this one... Give it one more year before a name is given..11 games is too early to name one.

    Whatever we call it won't matter, because whatever the media calls it is what it's nickname will be. But, for my part, I once suggested The Bull Rush a long time ago. Once we start winning games in the playoffs, we'll get a nick name. Hopefully we'll like it. LOL

    How about "Wade Phillips?"

    Or, more seriously, "Sons of Bum."
