Alex Carrington’s play is spiking on the defensive side of the ball of late, something we’ll bring to light more in a feature story Wednesday morning on Buffalobills.com. However, it was his exploits on the field goal block unit that earned him his current nickname in the Bills locker room.
After making the block on Jay Feely’s game-winning field goal attempt in Arizona in Week 6 with two seconds remaining to force overtime, Carrington triumphantly grabbed the wrist of the hand that blocked the kick with his other hand while jumping around to celebrate.
“We gave him a lot of garbage for that sorry celebration,” said Kyle Williams.
One of his teammates also gave him a nickname in the wake of that play and subsequent victory.
“Everybody was clowning me on it,” Carrington told Buffalobills.com of his celebration. ”Stevie gave me a nickname after that. He started calling me ‘Mega-Hand.’ That was the Arizona game. He was calling me ‘Mega-Hand.’ There are a few people that are calling me that now, mainly on the coaching staff. I’ll hear it in the hallways.”
No word if he plans to team up with Detroit’s Calvin Johnson on any collaborative efforts in the offseason.
