The Best Nickname in Tampa Bay Buccaneers History

Bob Donnan-US PRESSWIRE

Who has the best nickname in Tampa Bay Buccaneers history?

Nicknames are always fun, and we've talked about them a lot recently. After all, Doug Martin doesn't like being called a Muscle Hamster. But hey, he's out of luck, because a poll we did showed that people certainly preferred that over Dougernaut, Dougie Fresh, Catch-22 and others.

But does that make it the best nickname in Bucs history? I don't think so. There are plenty of other candidates.

Carnell "Cadillac" Williams: a nickname so popular, that no one called him by his first name and even the NFL adopted the Cadillac moniker. Unfortunately, this Cadillac blew its tires a little early.

Richard "Batman" Wood": This may be my favorite nickname of all. Wood was one of the few star players on the early Buccaneers, and went around with Batman logos painted on his gloves, and elbow pads. Wikipedia suggests he had a batman logo painted on his face in college, but I'm not sure on the truth of that.

Mike "A-Train" Alstott: This should require no explanation.

Clifton "Peanut" Smith: He had a short career, but he sure knew how to return kicks and punts. One of the Bucs few Pro Bowlers over the past five seasons.

Karl "The Truth" Williams: Because he's the truth. Also, because return specialists need nicknames.

Which ones did I miss? And which one is your favorite? Let us know in the comments!
