Okay, We All Need To Come Together... On Tyler's Nickname

I'm big on nicknames. I think it's one of the funnest parts of being a fan. And so we have this kid, this young, raw kid that will probably amount to nothing but for a brief time today, looked like a real NFL Quarterback. He is awkward. He is young. And we do not have a cohesive name for him.

It's up to us to resolve this. I hear many being tossed around. Bones, of course, is my personal favorite. Why? It's ridiculous. It's based off this picture. He's a skinny guy. Every single snap is a gamble with him. Again, it's ridiculous. Those are the best nicknames. The downside? Subtle, vague, inside joke. Upside? Completely awesome.

You have Thiggy. Okay, I have a personal vendetta against this one. I'm an NBA fan, and this reminds me of Andre Iguodala, who was nicknamed Iggy and then said he didn't want to be called Iggy. Screw him, I'm still calling him Iggy. Tyler is not Thiggy. But we'll see if people want it. The downside? Simple, unrefined, simple play on words. The upside? Thiggy Thiggy Thiggy, can't you see, sometimes your throws just hypnotize me.

Then there's Pigpen. Quite possibly the worst nickname we could possible devise. Based off of a comic strip that hasn't run in 8 years. Based off a dirty character, when Tyler is squeaky clean. Downside: completely lame, and should only be used by people wearing bellbottoms. Upside: Um... it's easy? Haha, he's dirty...?

But what say you, Arrowhead Pride? Tyler could be gone next week, forever lost in Chiefs trivia history, so we should make this count.
