Best Looking for a Nickname on Twitter

While some players might feel threatened when their team drafts a player that plays their position, that’s not the case with Lions running back Jahvid Best.

Best is welcoming rookie running back Mikel LeShoure with open arms, he’s even gone so far as to look at Twitter for suggestions on a nickname for the pair of Lions runners. The New York Giants had “Thunder and Lightning” with Ron Dayne and Tiki Barber.

Chris Johnson and LenDale White went with “Smash and Dash”, so did Carolina’s DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart. Shortly after LeShoure was drafted, someone suggested “Crash and Burn.”

    I love the names Crash and Burn. It’s original and catchy. Go Lions!!

  2. “Rock and Roll” would fit, & be simplified. Go Lions!
