As we've reported, Broncos backup quarterback Brock Osweiler has been named the starter for this Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears.

Why? Peyton Manning is said to be suffering from a rib-cage injury and a partial tear of the plantar fascia in his left foot — reasons given for his unbelievably terrible performance against the Kansas City Chiefs on November 15.

Members of Broncos Nation, some of whom had been calling for a quarterback change even before Manning pulled up lame, have responded enthusiastically to the switch on Twitter.

But what to call the new man under center? Manning is known as the Sheriff, but what nickname best applies to Osweiler?

The folks at Mile High Report collected a slew of suggestions from Twitter. Count down our ten photo-illustrated favorites below.

Number 10: New Kid on the Brock

Number 9: A Brockwork Orange

Number 8: The Brockinator

Number 7: The Brocketeer

Number 6: Brockapolypse

Number 5: The Deputy

Number 4: Kid Brock

Number 3: Brock Star

Number 2: Brocket Man

Number 1: Plan B
