What fun we are having. We're 3-0 (which I predicted) and the talk on here going into Indy is a lot different than anybody thought less than one month ago. I have been watching and reading all the news about this match up and it seems that Eric Berry and Kendrick Lewis are the focal point of why Peyton Manning will crush the Chiefs defense. I was going to save this nickname for when Kendrick Lewis and Eric Berry have established themselves as a great safety tandem, but it looks like they need this tag sooner rather than later.
You had "The Steel Curtain", "Purple People Eaters", and other colorful names that were synonymous with the excitement the fans felt about their team. Where did these nicknames originate? Who was the first person to come up with them? Well here's our chance AP! I for one am excited about this defense and I think our safety tandem could be one for the ages. So I now reveal to you the nickname for our safety tandem: "THE POWER AND LIGHT DISTRICT!"
This nickname couldn't be more befitting to not only a team on the rise but a city on the rise. You can construe the two metaphors however you'd like. Berry being power and fast as light or Lewis laying the power (already has a fine for causing a concussion) and Berry being light. It doesn't matter. The secondary being referred to as a "district" is a true testament of our secondary's ability to play together.
How cool would it be to hear Chris Berman on ESPN saying this nickname over the air? How cool would it be when they make a play on a future MNF game and the announcers refer to them as "The Power and Light District" comes up with a big play! Not only are we giving them a really cool nickname, we're putting a Kansas City landmark on the map on a national scale.
So call into those radio stations and refer to them as "The Power and Light District" and post on here with that nickname on the tip of your tongue. This defense needs a nickname. That nickname represents a landmark on the rise. Work with me here people and let's have some fun this year. THE POWER AND LIGHT DISTRICT!
