    The Thunder Storm

    Outside of Cameron Wake, Robert Quinn was the league's most dominant pass-rushing force in Week 1.

    The St. Louis Rams defensive end tallied three sacks in a tight win over the Arizona Cardinals. Fellow defensive end Chris Long added another takedown, three hurries of quarterback Carson Palmer and one batted pass. If they played in New York, the pair would be plastered all over the tabloids, but Quinn and Long remain under the radar to the average fan.

    A pair of nicknames should fix that, right?

    Asked Wednesday on "NFL AM" if he and Long can be the best tandem of ends in football, Quinn said, "I believe we can be in that argument. I like to call myself 'Black Lightning' and him the 'White Thunder,' aka 'The Thunder Storm,'" Quinn said.

    It's a bit clunky, but Quinn and Long can call themselves whatever they want if keep slamming passers into the turf.

    I think its a great nickname for them. If you didnt know one of Quinns fumbles was recovered by Long. This is going to be a great tandem for awhile.http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-am/0ap...ance-in-Week-1

    I like sacks of the opposing QB. At the end of the day, I would like them to be called All Pro's

    Quinn was named Defensive Player of the Week in NFC. Cameron Wake plays on a AFC team.

    Wake had 4 run stops along with 3 sacks two QB hits and five hurries, according to PFF. That is a monster game, although it is hard to think he had more impact than Quinn, who also forced two fumbles.

    Re: The Thunder Storm

    The "Thunder Storm"? "Black Lightning"? "White Thunder"?

    Come on! Black Lightning sounds like a bad movie title like "Blackula".

    You need something really snappy, like calling yourself a havoc wreaking Tornado and Long is a man-eating Shark, with the pair of you forming the fearsome “Sharknado” pass rush. Add Brockers wearing a Tara Reid mask under his helmet and you’ve got O-Lines running!
    I believe!
