Best Sports Team Nicknames

Here's a list to consider to get the one name that fits your team best.
41. No Name Defense
The 1972 Dolphins defensive unit, called the No Name Defense because Miami s impressive offense received much more publicity, as well as Cowboys coach Tom Landry coining the phrase in an interview, was the league s best that year. It was led by linebacker Nick Buoniconti, end Bill Stanfill, tackle Manny Fernandez, and safeties Dick Anderson and Jake Scott. In all, nine players Csonka, Morris, Warfield, Little, Evans, Buoniconti, Stanfill, Anderson and Scott were selected to the Pro Bowl, and Morrall, Stanfill and Anderson were named 1st team All Pro.
42. Orange Crush Defense
The Orange Crush Defense was the 34 defense of the Denver Broncos during the late 1970s and early 1980s. The team adopted the 34 defense during the 1976 season, and the nickname Orange Crush for the team s defense was popularized early in the 1977 season by sportswriter/broadcaster Woody Paige.
43. Portland Jailblazers
One of the worst behaved teams of all time, T the Jail Blazers tenure were Bonzi Wells, Rasheed Wallace, Damon Stoudamire, Zach Randolph, Ruben Patterson, Scottie Pippen, Chris Dudley, Arvydas Sabonis, Darius Miles, Qyntel Woods, Shawn Kemp and Omar Cook. One would look at this roster and think to themselves wow, if they had it together they could actually have been a great team but instead they acted more immaturely than any other athletes whom we can remember.
44. Air Coryell
In American football, Air Coryell is the name given to the offensive scheme and philosophy developed by former San Diego Chargers coach Don Coryell. Besides the term Air Coryell , the offensive philosophy developed by Coryell has been called the Coryell offense or the vertical offense .
With Dan Fouts as quarterback, the San Diego Chargers offense was among the greatest passing offenses in National Football League history. The Chargers led the league in passing yards an NFL record five consecutive years from 1979 to 1983 and again in 1985. They also led the league in total yards in offense 197883 and 1985. Dan Fouts, Charlie Joiner, and Kellen Winslow would all be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame from those Charger teams.
45. Doomsday Defense
The Doomsday Defense was the nickname given to the famous defensive of the American football team the Dallas Cowboys during their late 1960s 1970s dynasty years. This defense was the backbone of the Cowboys dynasty, which won two Super Bowls (VI, XII) and played in three more (V, X and XIII).
Often recognized as two different generations of the famed Doomsday Defense . However, there is no agreed upon definition of exactly when those defenses existed or who their members were, which is why you may see different listings of players and time periods. The original Doomsday Defense can generally be identified as the Cowboys defenses from 1966 to 1975. Doomsday II had its heyday from approximately 1976 to 1982. Doomsday III was created in the 2009 10 season.
The first defensive player to win the Super Bowl MVP was linebacker Chuck Howley (V). Later linemen Harvey Martin and Randy White became the first (and only) teammates (co MVPs) to win the award (XII).
46. Harveys Wallbangers
Kuenn was fired as manager after the Brewers finished fifth in the AL East with an otherwise respectable 87 75 record in 1983. He compiled a 160 118 managerial record. During his tenure, the hard hitting Brewers were known as Harvey s Wallbangers. At the time, their roster included Cecil Cooper, Ben Oglivie, Ted Simmons, Gorman Thomas, and future Hall of Famers Paul Molitor and Robin Yount. After being replaced, he worked as a major league scouting consultant for the Brewers.
47. Kardiac Kids
The 1980 Cleveland Browns were known as the Kardiac Kids for having several games decided in the final moments.
48. Americas Team
The Dallas Cowboys became America s Team in 1978 when NFL films announcer Bob Ryan introduced this nationally popular franchise in the team s highlight film. The name stuck and helped to solidify its fan base outside of Dallas. Many people laugh at this name because of the hatred the team has around the country as well. It s a bit of a controversy nowadays with stupid sports shows like First Take .
49. The Heatles
One of the most hated teams ever assembled, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh lead the Miami Heat and self proclaimed Heatles to four straight NBA Finals winning 2 of 4. The big three completely took over the NBA, dominated attention in the media, and had everyone talking around the sports world. Maybe comparing themselves to The Beatles wasn t too far fetched.
50. Gashouse Gang
The Gashouse Gang was a nickname applied to the St. Louis Cardinals Major League Baseball team of 1934. The team won 95 games, the National League pennant, and the 1934 World Series in seven games over the Detroit Tigers.
