Ryan Poles

Pat McAfee coins raunchy, hilarious nickname for Bears GM Ryan Poles

NBC Universal, Inc.

Bears general manager Ryan Poles made a stunning trade for Keenan Allen on Thursday night, and the consensus so far has been that the move was a home run.

On Friday, Pat McAfee offered his opinion on the trade that sent a fourth-round pick to the Chargers in exchange for the six-time Pro Bowl receiver and "staple of the Chargers' offense." And in doing so, McAfee invented an unbelievable nickname for the Bears' GM.

"Keenan Allen's guy you want on your team," McAfee said on his show Friday. "I love this move for the Chicago Bears. We have no idea what they're gonna do at No. 1, still. Everybody assumes it's Caleb Williams, but then you started hearing people chat, 'maybe not.' Now, is that just draft season B.S.? Probably. But all I see is the Chicago Bears trying to get better.

"I know you Chicago Bears fans have been yearning for success for a very long time. Feels like this particular front office and everything understands that. Poles is making moves. And I'm calling him 'big pole Poles.' And I think he's making a lot of 'big pole' moves. And you guys might end up on the pole of the NFC at some point. We shall see. Congratulations to you guys."

Big pole Poles. That's quite the name to live up to.

Hopefully he keeps it up.
