The greatest NFL nickname of all-time belongs to Walter Payton

A recent article from the USA Today’s Touchdown Wire lists their 101 greatest nicknames in football history, and as you’d expect, the Chicago Bears were well represented. But before we get down to the nitty-gritty and check which Bears players made the cut, let’s take a look at a few that didn’t make it.

They had two Bears make their honorable mention list, Devin “Anytime” Hester and Anthony “A-Train” Thomas, but I always liked Windy City Flyer nickname much better for Hester.

Some other nicknames that I always liked were the “Ultraback” Raymont Harris, James “Robocop” Thornton, Dennis “Pinky” Gentry, James “Big Cat” Williams, “Mad Mac” was Jim McMahon, and Tarik Cohen has a couple, but “Chicken Salad” is my fav.
