Fantasy football team names made easy

Tim TebowAP ImagesTim Tebow isn't a top fantasy option, but he definitely inspires memorable fantasy team names.

Every year around this time, I get a bunch of emails and tweets from readers asking for help coming up with a fantasy football team name.

So instead of responding to each person, this year I thought I'd do a sort of "Reply All" via column.

Employing classic fantasy team naming methods -- pop culture reference, word play and (extremely) forced pun -- here are three fantasy team name ideas for each NFL team.

Note: If you win your league with any of these names, I expect a cut of the winnings. And you'd better pay up or I'll use even more puns.

Have a good fantasy name idea of your own? Share it in the comments section.
