Yes thats right, Joe not Joey. If I may quote a letter to the editor in this week's Sports Illustrated:
I thought it was pretty funny and possibly true but I think it's what makes Joey be Joey...ya know, always acting like a kid at heartHe may be an awesome defender, but somehow "Joey" Porter as the name of the most feared player in the NFL just doesn't work for me. Think back to another time in Steelers history. Would Mean "Joey" Greene have inspired terror in the hearts of opponents?
