Name change gives jocks and nerds something to talk about.
The Seattle Seahawks secondary is anything but shy; just ask Tom Brady what he thinks of the group.
Three weeks after earning their stripes against the New England Patriots at Century Link (at letting everyone know about), CB Richard Sherman is at it again.
@RSherman_25 is no longer an adequate description of who Sherman will be this weekend, changing the name that appears on his twitter handle to Optimus Prime.
The opposing force on Sunday comes from Detroit, and their most powerful weapon is WR Calvin Johnson, aka Megatron. The Lions all-pro receiver was given the nickname because of his super athletic ability. It may also have something to do with his arm-mounted fusion creator cannon he takes on the field for gamedays.

Within the Transformers series, Megatron is the Decepticon Leader, or the Emperor of Destruction, and he is able to transform into a Walther P38, a semi-automatic pistol developed and first used by Nazi Germany. Needless to say, Megatron is the bad guy.
Meanwhile, Optimus Prime is the leader of the Autobots. Essentially, Prime is the good guy that waits, disguised as a truck in plane site protecting the innocent and defeating evil.
Expect to see a fantastic matchup Sunday morning as Sherman and Johnson battle on the gridiron.
At this point, it is safe to assume these two will be matched up together, and if the fireworks are as good on Sunday as they have been leading up to the game, we are in for a treat.
Is it smart to poke the best WR in the league? Is it wise to claim yourself the leader of the Autobots that do everything in their power to destroy Megatron and deliver the Seahawks a victory?
Spoiler alert: Megatron is defeated, the good guys win.
Let’s hope the rest of the Autobots Seahawks secondary decides to join the battle and help defeat all of the Decepticons Lions offensive weapons.
It’d be nice if the Hawks scored on offense too.
