Players often give one another nicknames. Ryan Fitzpatrick gave practice squad lineman Mike Jasper the moniker of ‘Eclipse’ because he’s a massive human being. Stevie Johnson has one for head coach Chan Gailey, but nicknames really are not something Buffalo’s head coach concerns himself with.

“He’s got too much free time on his hands,” said a straight-faced Gailey.
For those not familiar here’s an image of the fictional Megamind character.
