Keyport, NJ--- Former Eagles Offensive lineman Jon Runyan is running for Congress as the Republican nominee for New Jersey's 3rd congressional district.
Runyan is a former offensive lineman with the Oilers, Philadelphia Eagles and San Diego Chargers.
In fact, Runyan and Oilers quarterback Steve McNair were the last two Houston Oilers players in the NFL, after the team moved to Tennessee.
Too soon? You shoulda seen the jokes I chose not to use.
Calls to McNair to comment on this story have not been responded to.*
Also, in 2006 when he was playing for the Eagles, he was listed in a Sports Illustrated article as one of the dirtiest players in the NFL.
Last week, Runyan debated his Democratic opponent, Rep. John Adler, when the subject of the Supreme Court came up.
ADLER: "Jon, it's a different branch of government, but can you give me an example from the last 10 or 15 years of a Supreme Court decision in which you strongly disagree?"
RUNYAN: "That I strongly disagree with?" Runyan clarified, pausing before considering his final answer.
"Dred Scott," Runyan responded.
Runyan appeared in an episode of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, portraying a big, fat, dopey former NFL offensive lineman who believed that making a bunch of money pushing other big, fat, dopey guys to the ground in the NFL, and then living in Mount Laurel, where they shoot blacks and Latinos on sight, unless they're driving a landscaping truck, gave him the credentials to run for public office as a Congressman in New Jersey's 3rd congressional district, a district that includes townships and boroughs like Willingboro, Burlington City, Delanco, Mount Holly, Riverside, Shamong, Wrightstown, and a ton of other municipalities that need true leadership, and not someone to be elected simply because he is semi-famous, is running against a Democrat and three write-in candidates, and who has already admitted will simply mimic the Republican shenanigans his predecessor, Jim Saxton, got away with for 17 years.
