    over there
    You just don't need a nickname for Dick Butkus.
    Everyone can tell what he did just by his name.

    I always liked "Crash" Jensen, great nickname. I'd never heard bulldog for ZT. I had heard and liked Barney Rubble for ZT, though.

    Zonk.

    A nickname so great that Shula actually named his collie Zonk.

    Reminds me of the "In Living Color" halftime skit many years ago ...

    "What other game boasts such great names like Dick Butkus?"

    "Or my favorite Bob Griese."

    "Now, isn't he a tight end?"

    "He was."
