We should have seen it coming.
With Bengals receivers Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco repeatedly calling themselves “Batman and Robin,” opposing defensive backs will be describing themselves as one or more of the Caped Crusader’s traditional foes.
Bills cornerback Drayton Florence, whose team will face the Dynamic Duo on Saturday night, has dubbed himself Mr. Freeze, per the Associated Press.
Bills safety Donte Whitner opted not to use nicknames when discussing his plans for the Bills’ first game against their former star player, Owens.
“We don’t want to go out there and just see how we match up,” Whitner said. “We want to dominate. We’re not trying to play around.
We want to go out there and try to solidify ourselves as one of the top
secondaries in the league.”
Still, look for other corners and safeties who’ll be facing the Bengals to describe themselves with names like Joker, Riddler, Penguin, and Two-Face.
Based on his tackling prowess, we suggest that Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie consider this one: Catwoman.
