I had gone to an NFL training camp one time in my life before.  Way back, when I was about eight years old and on vacation in Colorado, I got to see Broncos training camp. I was too young to know anything about what was going on at the time, but I do remember John Elway was there, and that my mom got her picture taken with Steve Atwater.

Cleaning part of my room, I was reminded that I used to have a Sports Illustrated subscription when I found an issue from 2005, an “NFL DRAFT SPECIAL” that had to have come out only a week after the draft.

To refresh your memory, these are the criteria used in deciding what the best name on a team is:
-Creativity
-Number of words
-Pronounciation
-If it makes you sound like a badass or not

Not all names are starters on their team, but they are part of the 53-ish person roster. To see the winning names from last year, here’s the AFC and the NFC edition.

Consider this one I definitely didn’t see coming, and I’m not being sarcastic. Titans quarterback Vince Young is being considering the most likely guy involved in some kind of altercation at a Dallas strip club.

In baseball, there are three kinds of basic pitchers: starters, middle relief, and closers. At least, that’s what I think. I’m a football guy talking about baseball, so forgive me if you think I’m wrong. Each kind of pitcher has certain duties they are expected to do.

I got to thinking, why not apply that same theory to the quarterback position in the NFL?
