The Perfect Nickname for The Defense

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I was on my google plus acct talking with fellow Saints Fans and a picture popped up that had the caption of Storm Patrol. I immediately thought this would be the perfect name for The Defense. What do you guys ...

But you can't give yourself your own nickname, that's as lame as Matty Ice giving himself one

Re: The Perfect Nickname for The Defense

Question...

Other than the ghey-ass "legion of boom", how many currently great NFL teams have a damn nickname?

ANSWER: NICKNAMES ARE GHEYER THAN POWER RANKINGS, AND IT AIN'T EVEN CLOSE.

Re: The Perfect Nickname for The Defense

As Mitch said and I replied to the last nickname thread.....

Nicknames are earned from your opponents. You can't start them or stop them.

"Legion of Boob" has to be stolen from Wrestling. Only a complete tool would call them selves of their team that.

Re: The Perfect Nickname for The Defense

Learn from history:

60s Vikings = Purple people eaters
70s Cowboys = Doomsday Defense
70s Dolphins = No Name Defense
70s Colts = Big Mac Attack
70s Steelers = The Steel Curtain
The fearsome four!= the 60s Rams
The Killer bees = The 80s Dolphins
The Hogs = The 80s Redskins
Orange Crush - 70's Broncos
Killer Bees - '82 Dolphins
Homeland Defense - 00's Pats
Gang Green - Jets or Eagles in 80's
Fearsome Foursome - 60's Rams D-line
Dome Patrol - 80's Saints LBs
Blitzburgh - Steelers
80s Jets = NY Sack Exchange
80s Bears = Monsters of the Midway

What are we learning? That I have heard of only about 6 of those and after the 80's no nick names are worth mentioning?
