Steve Smith - nickname...?

76 posts in this topic

Steve Smith is now a Baltimore Raven!  Awesome, except for one thing.  We already have Torrey Smith, and Daryl Smith, and Jimmy Smith.  Time to hash out a nickname for Steve Smith if he doesn't already have one.  From what I can tell, they just call him Smitty in Carolina...which is lame.

 

My vote is for Venom.  Per Wikipedia, Venom's powers and abilities (with my comments) include: "greatly enhances physical attributes of current host" (strengthens our team!), "Superhuman strength" (no doubt Steve Smith is strong), "ability of the Symbiote to fight and defend itself when either the host or it is in danger" (we know Smith is a fighter, ahem Ken Lucas), "shapeshifting" (nice!), "invisibility" (Smith doesn't have over a 800 receptions because he is easy to find), "can expand size" (good for catching those high throws from Joe), "also exhibits telepathic abilities, primarily when it needs to communicate with its host" (really good for audibles), "capable of producing webbing similar to Spider-man's" (and you thought Smith had good hands...it's his webbing!)  And the list goes on and on.

 

The downside, apparently Venom is vulnerable to FIRE (keep him away from our game tunnel / no pryo works at game intro please!) and SONIC WAVES (uh oh, crowd noise will be a problem for him in the dome games this year...Houston, Indy & New Orleans).

 

Any takers?

Haha so I guess I brushed up on comics lore for nothing!

"Smitty" sounds weak to me.  Doesn't fit Steve Smith at all.

His nickname is Ice Up Son?  What's that all about?....

 

Oh nevermind, it was that shot at Talib.  I thought it was just a saying, not a nickname.

Isn't Agent 89 his nickname?

 

Yea, it's Agent 89 or just 8-9.

Steve still hasn't had a nickname that stuck yet. He's been called "The Knockout", "Man", etc. But all the way up through the playoffs - still nothing fit.

I'm cosidering "The Smithsonian" because he takes them to school every game. And (Ice up son) would be a great sound from 70,000 Ravens Fans after every catch he makes.

He's not a kid anymore, let's leave it at Steve Smith. No nicknames please, they're silly. Especially the forced ones.

Finally, something sensible.

Dude is a 13 year veteran, don't think he's looking for a new nick name.

 

In reading the good bye posts on the panthers boards it seemed that most called him, oddly enough, either Smitty or Steve.

Smitty and Steve Smith is fine with me ... But when he makes a sick play you must yell "Ice Up Son!!"

Don't quite get why every player needs a nickname. Like many have said, Steve is just fine. The crowd can even chant 'Steve' when he makes a catch. Kinda like we did for Heap, Reed and Q.

If the fans can time it just right. That would be epic.

I dream of the day where there can be some sort of system that helps fans pull off synchronized chants. Or maybe some kind of PSA video that instructs us "Okay Ravens fans...when you see this blue light on the screen, (displays blue light on screen), as shown here...when that light is displayed, we will then commence in shouting 'ICE UP, SON! We will now show a demonstration with the crowd behind me...'"

I am with those who say why the nicknames ? I mean they are fun for a little while every once in a while. On certain occasions they work like with "Megatron" and "The Natural" but often times you get something stupid like " The Tazmanian Devil" "The Sanchize" "Tom Terrific" (or anything Brady related sucks, besides his play).

 

Really though Steve Smith is a perfectly acceptable name, or Steve, or Smith (although the confusion abounds on that one), Smitty perhaps, or if you are feeling Britishly intelligent Agent 89, anymore than that and you are forcing it.

I've never understood this obsession with nicknames. "Steve" works for me.

 

This. Is calling him by his actual name that hard? lol
