    Captain America is a pretty cool nickname, I say we go with that

    especially if his teammates have been calling him that

    Yeah, apparently its "The Natural". If we're doing robot names, he's obviously Ninjzz from Bots Masters.

    Being named Optimus Prime after someone is called Megatron makes Andre #2 in the scheme of things...He probably shouldn't have a name to go opposite of someone else who is doing really well at the moment.

    I did vote for Optimus Prime though. It's definitely better than Captain America.

    I'll stick with Dre or AJ80. No need to have a fancy nickname when you're the best in the game.

    The best don't have to gloss themselves.

    To strike fear and respect into defenses all over the locker room, all you have to say is "80".

    Gus calls him "The Natural" and "The Great One"

    I like 'Dre better though.

    I love it. It can be ambiguous as to whether you are praising him for being the crutch this team leans on or if you are mocking him for his injuries.

    Nicknames forced upon someone by fans never seem to stick. Optimus Prime and Captain America both seem silly and unfitting to me.

    I prefer to just call him 'Dre. Simple and easy to say, kind of like Dream.

    Players like Andre Johnson don't need nicknames. The minute the name "Andre Johnson" is uttered aloud, CBs all over the nation feel a shiver go down their spine, and an intense pain pounds away at the lightning-shaped scar on Cortland Innegan's forehead.
