Obafemi Ayanbadejo is a better FB name


btw you know you watch too much football when you can pronounce 80% of these names without a 2nd thought

How about Chinedum Ndukwe at safety

03-19-2008, 08:01 PM
Marques Tuiasosopo?

yeah, that would complete the team. If you want a bigger name (figuratively) how about Ben Roethilsberger even.

Norberto Davidds-Garrido Jr.

Drafted by the Panthers in 96 and played for the Cards.

I don't quite understand why TE Brandon Manumaleuna's name gives announcers so many brain spasms. Once you get it down, it's pretty simple to me. It's not like they are being asked to spell the name correctly.

To add to it, O.J. Atogwe's actual name is Oshiomogho Atogwe.

He lives back in Hawaii. Sometimes when I feel like waking up early, I go play basketball with him. They play every Sat morning at 6AM. Whole bunch of the same guys every weekend. Whenever I do go, Chris is always there. I don't like playing with him on the same team cause he's one of those guys who thinks he's a coach on the court... telling everyone what to do and always wanting the ball. He's cool though. Never gets mad or anything.

Yes!!!!!!!!. Thank you. I looked for that on NFL.com and couldn't find it anywhere.


Whoever mentioned the center is right too. I was looking for first and last names and thought Gene and Scott where too easy, but I guess the last name of Lucas is easy too.

Maybe someone will be drafted this year with a tough name.

That's because he pronounces his name wrong.

How are easy names like Osi and Kiwanuka there but someone like KGB isnt? they had to make a nickname for him because his name is too long and hard to pronounce...

Also you could add Brendon Ayanbadejo in there as MLB.
