Somewhere, Vernon Davis is angry his nickname has been usurped.

That is, of course, if the former Maryland star isn’t already angry about being turned into a blocking tight end.


Davis, of course, is probably the best player ever to be tabbed as “a cyborg” during a JP/Lincoln Financial/Raycom broadcast by the Original Hog.

Yet linebacker Antonio Appleby just earned the moniker for recording a sack in the second quarter against East Carolina.

Now, Original Hog didn’t repeat “Cyborg” over and over and over again, as he once supposedly did for Davis. But pulling that name out of mothballs certainly made for an even more amusing day.
