Broncos Wide Receivers Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker Have Arguably the Best Duo Nickname EverBruce Kluckhohn/USA TODAY Sports

Thanks to Peyton Manning, Eric Decker and Demaryius Thomas had career statistical years. Decker had 85 receptions with 1,064 yards and 13 touchdowns while Thomas played his first injury-free season and recorded 94 catches for 1,434 yards and 10 TDs. Outside of football, the two guys have developed a budding friendship which has transformed into arguably one of the best nicknames for a duo ever.

Thomas is "thrilled" by "how a white teammate from the far north, Eric Decker, has become best friend to a black kid from Georgia," which has spawned the creation of their nickname: Black and Decker. Creative? Yes. Awesome? Definitely!
