Best and Suh Get Their Detroit Names??

Lions community, I offer for your enjoyment and acceptance Transformer names for our two newest, and soon to be beloved Lions, Ndamukong Suh and Javhid Best.  I propose the following:

-Ndamukong Suh hereby be known as Crumplezone!  This big brawler is the muscular half of the "Gruesome Twosome"  Maybe, just maybe Samie Lee Hill can prove himself worthy of the other half of this duo, Ransack

-Javhid Best hereby be known as Velocitron! the Speed Planet.  Apparently it's some place where they built racetracks and such blah blah but where/who else is more about SPEED then Javhid Best!!!  I trust he'll live up to this distinction and zip around the field with the speed and grace that wont only arouse Optimus Prime.

I confess I've never seen a Transformers movie so I had to look through the names on wikipedia to find these.  If anyone knows of better names for these players or wants to suggest names for others I'd love to hear them!  Disclaimer: If whatever movie studio it is that owns the rights to these names is upset over fan usage they should simply be happy people other than children are even talking about their stupid movie!!

Am I missing anyone from the list?
Coach Schwartz= Optimus Prime
Calvin Johnson= Megatron
Brandon Pettigrew= Jumbotron
Ndamukong Suh= Crumplezone
Javhid Best= Velocitron
Nate Burleson= Recepticon (he still has to earn that!)
Matt Millen (I feel dirty having even typed that name!)= Idiotron

I recently heard it suggested Stafford was Intercepticon but I'd like to believe he'll grow out of that moniker this season!  What are your thoughts Lions fans??
