Default Help find a nickname for Mike Tolbert

Watching Football Night in San Diego, and Kaz mentioned that the team is still looking for a nickname for Tolbert.

I call for the Rockadoodlin' Chantecler. Just a bit of a playoff because of his college mascot and the main character from RockaDoodle.

Seriously? What's this fascination with 'finding' nicknames for players? Those that have them aren't manufactured... they just happen.

It wasn't for Tolbert himself, he was referring to the combination of Mathews/Sproles/Tolbert. That was the nickname he was talking about.

I'm not into the nickname thing but I think I heard him called "Stanky Leg" by an announcer.
