50 Chris Berman Nicknames for Future NFL Stars He May Never Get to Use

Chris Berman will step down as host of ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown, NFL PrimeTime and Monday Night Countdown after the Super Bowl. He’ll stay in Bristol in a reduced role after serving as the network’s lead NFL studio host. The new plan calls for him to host PrimeTime twice a year — after the conference title games and Super Bowl.

This means most of the incoming NFL talent will never have the privilege of receiving a Chris Berman nickname. Because we are nothing if not thoughtful at The Big Lead, this injustice simply will not stand.

We took the liberty of creating some Bermanisms for some of the future stars. Some are good. Most are bad. But, it’s too late to take it backbackback.
