I posed this fantastical question to Ryan Riddle and Sigmund Bloom the other day. If an alien race came to earth and challenged us to a game of football to keep the planet, who would be your starting quarterback? I have my answer, but I want to hear yours.
I don’t care how you imagine the aliens or if you pick a player who is 60 or six feet under and the aliens resurrect him in his prime condition. That dilemma is for your twisted imagination. I just want to know who you pick.
Here’s the follow up: If the aliens’ deal is that we have to pick a quarterback from this 2014 draft class, who would it be?
Add a comment at the bottom of this post with each name. ONLY LEAVE THE TWO NAMES. It’s not that I don’t care about your reasons why, but at this point I don’t care about your reasons why. I just want to take the top 5-10 answers and hold a tournament.
I’m going to ask writers to represent each choice (for the first question) and present their arguments here before the final vote. But vote in the comments below so I can take a tally. Note: Don’t worry if your comment doesn’t show up immediately – I moderate this blog, so I’ll get them by email.
