Aaron LiebmanAnalyst IFebruary 21, 2009

With the Academy Awards only one day away, it seems only appropriate to announce the proposed titles for movies that tell the stories of specific players this past season.

Ultimately, these titles were scrapped, since they had either already been used, but were too close to other titles. 

In alphabetical order of the players' last names, here are some of the rejected film titles and the player whose story it attempted to tell.

Escape From New York: The Buffalo Bills and their attempt to change their losing ways by playing home games in Canada

The Pink Panther: Carolina, to describe the way they played against the Cardinals in the playoffs

Dog Day Afternoon: The only way to describe the Cleveland Browns season

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The story of the Dallas Cowboys' last game in Philly

The Whole Nine Yards: The whole Detroit Lions team, since that's pretty much the most they could gain

Lucky You: The San Diego Chargers, for clinching their division with an 8-8 record after the Denver Broncos lost three straight games

Fallen: Browns QB Derek Anderson

There's Something About Mary-Juana: Former Falcons RB Jamal Anderson

Wa(g)ck the Dog: QB Michael Vick, okay, not this season, but I couildn't resist

White Men Can't Jump (into the crowd): Patriots WR Wes Welker, maybe not the best title, but how else can you describe a receiver who gets a fine for a touchdown celebration that's only a snow angel
