Tuesday open thread: Which Lions player would you vote for president?

We need a candidate of the people.

The Presidential debates kicked off on Monday night, and much of America spouted their cynicism over both candidates all over social media before, during and after the debate. If you’re like me, Facebook is completely unusable today.

So we need to find ourselves a new candidate. While we all would be firmly behind Jim Bob Cooter for President, it appears the Detroit Lions offensive coordinator isn’t up for the task. So today’s Question of the Day is:

Which Detroit Lions player would you vote for president?

My answer: Okay, obviously this question is in jest, and I wouldn’t actually vote for an athlete as President of the United States, especially considering we know nothing of these players’ platforms. However, if we were to choose a player based on their personality and leadership, my vote would go to DeAndre Levy. He is unafraid to stand up to injustices in this world, he has experience in foreign policy, and he’d be the first president to literally walk on Air Force One. And who wouldn’t want to see that beard tucked into a navy blue suit as he’s being sworn in as Commander in Chief?

Your turn.
