what is this, Lord of the Rings?

they dont need a nickname. if something sticks, it sticks. theres nothing worse than a forced nickname, especially when it sucks. (M-Rob for example).

btw, "the scarlet shield"?? not only is that not one of our colors, but it sounds like a romance novel...

um... what? what in there references Lord of the Rings?

all the "Golden Guard and Shield" stuff. it just sounds like that theme.

imo the Gold Rush wouldve made sense and tied into football (as in pass rush), which we actually had back in the 60's. but then they named the cheerleader squad the Gold Rush, so now it sounds weak.

A caller on KNBR last night came up with a pretty good one.

Fort Knocks...cuz nothing comes in and nothing goes out.

he stole that from the guys on 95.7 The Game. They've been trying to pitch that for a long time now.

do you mean Fort. Knox ??

A wordplay on the original Fort Knox to say that the 49ers defenders put a hurt on opposing players, hard knocks. i.e.
YUCK FOU
Harbaugh's Hunters
I registered just to submit my nickname idea
The "Bay Area Barrier"
Vic's Sticks



The Niners' Brass Knuckles D!
black outs
The Alex Smith Crutches
Donte Whitner said on the radio today that the defense themselves say that they want to be called "The Steamrollers"
Shouldn't be called anything they can't cover the pass for s**t
