Steelers Lounge Podcast #23: Bengals-Steelers Preview — Tyrone Carter

Clearly, the Bengals coming to town can only mean one thing: TRAP GAME. Actually, we don’t think that, but, as Adam points out on the podcast, I’m sure that’ll be a national-media talking point.

Anyway, we’re discussing the matchups, and more importantly: have some early nominees for Shaun Suisham nicknames. The early favorite? Po-Sweezy, courtesy of reader Mike D. (And, yes, should he win he will get a free SL subscription … for life.)

Chatting starts below.

    Actually, I like the original nickname the Steelers had given to Suisham, which was simply “Six,” his number. “Six” also looks like the dress size he’d wear, if so inclined.

    Hey, don’t laugh. He’s got the legs for it.

    • Randy Steele

      Oh, and if you’re desperate for a nickname for Kaponis, how about “K-Pop”?

      • Randy Steele

        And if Kaponis sucks as a punter, we could instead call him “K-Pon.” (For those of you who didn’t grow up on a farm, a capon is a castrated rooster.)

    Another nickname suggestion for Suisham (via Twitter): Lil’ Bubby.

    I like that. Also like Po-Sweezy & K-Pop.

    Uh, Ty Carter over Mike Wagner?

    Also, for Suisham, how about Mustard? As in, what goes with swiss and ham. Also, after ketchup, it is one of the top Heinz products. And, uh, I guess he gets something on his kicks.

      Haha. I had to look up Wagner (71-80). I’m surprised JJ didn’t bring him up. That’s right in his wheelhouse.

      Sorta related: Spark Clark also wore 23 in 1987. He shoulda won on the name alone.

    I just noticed a detail from the Bengals game – the Hines Ward swing pass has evolved into the Mike Wallace swing pass. I remember you guys talking about that and speculating that it may be a way to keep Ward’s catch streak going… Well maybe it was, and now that the streak is over that element of the offense can be deployed with a more dangerous weapon. Off the top of my head, that play resulted in no gain, a gang tackle short of the endzone right before our first field goal, and a huge gain that had the announcers raving about Wallace’s speed.

    Speaking of nicknames, I really like that the Steelers themselves have no nickname or headline-type name (Black & Gold doesn’t count nor does Stillers), a la Bolts, G-Men, Boys, ‘Skins, Pack, Pats (especially Pats), Jags etc etc.
