Rod Marinelli has some awesome nicknames for the Cowboys defensive line

Rod Marinelli is a fun coach on the defensive side of the ball.  When Jason Hatcher was asked about his 64 year old coach things got interesting. Hatcher said that Marinelli had given the starting defensive line a nick. The group is called the “Fearsome Four,” but the individual names go as follows.

Hatcher: Big Daddy.

DeMarcus Ware: Long Arms.

George Selvie: Bricklayer.

Nick Hayden: Golden Cock.

Hatcher said Marinelli gave him that name because, like former NFL player Eugene “Big Daddy” Lipscomb, Hatcher is big, occasionally plays high in his stance and likes to party. My question is how was Hayden named Golden Cock? Hatcher’s response was classic:

“He’s the only white guy,” Hatcher said. “You ever seen the Fearsome Four? Nick is the only white guy.”

When asked if he liked that nickname?

“Oh yeah,” Hatcher said. “The Golden Cock, that’s a sweet name, the Golden Cock.”

I officially love Rod Marinelli, if you name your guys, that have to like that. I think Golden Cock is classic, Gotta Love It.
