Poll: What is your favorite nickname for the Chargers defense?

As submitted by the community!

NFL: Cleveland Browns at Los Angeles Chargers Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Alright, Bolts fans! Welcome, welcome.. make yourself at home!

We are here to day to support each other, and, perhaps, take the first steps toward acceptance. I’ll go first. “I am a Bolt Fan, and I still falsely believe that I can affect this team’s fate, for better or for worse.”

No.. NO! I won’t believe that! I can’t! We are fans, and as delusional as it can be, we have to believe that we can change things!

If you didn’t check out the previous post, go there to learn a little bit about the history of sports nicknames. You’ll even learn about an awesome gladiator!

After this post, which tongue-in-cheek implies that fans could possibly affect the future of a franchise through numbers and polls, several other members of our community also chimed in with their suggestions for names for the Chargers’ defensive unit.

As a gesture merely meant for informative fun, assuming that your opinion had merit or weight.. which nickname would you prefer for this coming season’s defense?


Which fan-submitted nickname do you prefer?

Please note: Although I may or may not hold up a sign with the winning poll result on it and petition outside of the Chargers’ offices, this is meant as an exercise in fun. But, seriously, you have to pick one of these options or... or ELSE!
