On Monday, the Green Bay Packers return to Lambeau Field for a prime-time matchup with the Detroit Lions. Mike Payton of Pride of Detroit kindly volunteered to answer our questions about the Lions and provide some insight into their strengths and weaknesses.

APC: If you could take one player from the Packers’ roster and drop them onto the Lions, who would you choose?

Anyone who knows me know that I have an affinity for Danny Vitale. He was easily my draft crush coming out of Northwestern in the 2016 draft. This is a guy that can do so much more than NFL teams are ready to use him for. He should be a flat out superstar right now instead of just another fullback. I honestly hope that one day the Packers let him go and the Lions sign him to play super back.

But alas, I know it won’t be long before he’s in the WWE and my dream will be over.

We’d like to thank Mike. Be sure to check out the rest of our Q&A session with Pride of Detroit over the course of the week as well as our Q&A session over there. As always, keep your internet machines tuned to Acme Packing Company this Monday for our comprehensive game-day coverage of Lions versus Packers.
