All correct except "The Rock" is not Ed Budde.
That nickname belonged to a defensive player (a hint).

Answers to the other not guessed:

"Mother" is Curt "Mother" Merz, a lineman for the Chiefs in the 1960's. He went on to be a radio personality in KC for many years.

"The Riddler" was wide receiver Frank Pitts, who played for the Chiefs and Cleveland Browns in the 1960's and 1970's. Called "The Riddler" because when he laughed, he giggled like the Riddler on Batman TV show, which was a big hit at the time (1966).

"Boo Boo" was Chiefs first round draft choice, running back and kick returner Paul Palmer. Called "Boo Boo" because he has really small ears, and his team mates at Temple U. thought he looked like "Boo Boo Bear" from the Yogi Bear show.

I'm still fond of Abner "We'll kick to the clock" Haynes. He was a great RB and should-be HOF'er to be sure, but hoo-boy, just imagine the ruckus if child prodigy Al Gore had invented the Internet in the 50's and the Planet existed and was inexplicably following a team in Dallas and we'd all posted on the game thread and...

http://www.houstonprofootball.com/log/log1.html
Abner Haynes scored twice and the Texans led at the half, 17-0. Blanda hooked up with Dewveall for a 15-yd score then added a fourth-quarter field goal. Tolar's one-yard plunge tied the game with less than six minutes to go. The Oilers lined up to kick a game-winning field goal in the closing seconds but Sherill Headrick blocked Blanda's attempt and sudden-death overtime loomed.

As the ABC telecast moved to prime time, the first such exposure for the fledgling league, sideline announcer Jack Buck dragged his microphone to midfield for the coin toss. Dallas coach Hank Stram told Haynes that, if he won the coin toss, to choose the wind which was a stiff breeze heading into the stadium scoreboard. Haynes called "heads" and the coin turned his way. "We'll kick to the clock," said Haynes in perhaps the most famous utterance in AFL history. Referee Harold Bourne replied, "Captain Haynes, you made the choice and said you'll kick." Haynes then did not have the choice of direction. The Oilers joyously accepted both the ball and the wind.

Blanda was picked off twice in the first overtime. The Dallas defense spared Haynes from eternal goat-dom. Jack Spikes opened the second overtime, taking a Len Dawson handoff and bolted 19 yards to the Oiler 19. An incomplete pass and two short runs led to rookie Tommy Brooker's 25-yard field goal attempt. With the breeze now at his back, Brooker ended pro football's longest afternoon to date - a 78-minute marathon - with a kick to complete the 20-17 Dallas win.

I believe the "meanest" was Ty Parten. Gun once said he "goes to bed mad and wakes up madder!"

I always thought Minnie Mouse was a more apt nickname for McMillan.

I always called Jeff Criswell the Revolving Door.

And lest we forget elvis Grbackup and Harvey "The Neck" Williams, otherwise known as E.T.
