Semi-serious question .. I wonder if Rodgers would quit football if offered the Jeopardy gig on a full time basis? 

Easy answer.  What is yes, Family Ghost.

According to the interwebs Alex Trebek reportedly made $10 mil/yr hosting Jeopardy.   Not sure what he made in shoe endorsements.

Not a bad living making $10 mil without a boy name Suh diving at your knees.   (would make the hosting gig more enjoyable to watch if they did add that element of fear though)

Yeah .. it's a good gig.  That would be a 2nd dream job for Rodgers and I'm pretty sure he'd accept it.  I think the timeline would allow him to play football in 2021, and then maybe step away after a super bowl victory ;)  What a way to retire.

Yep.  It appears as though all roads are leading Rodgers back to Cali at some point in the near future (new bride, family, his homeland, TV stardom, etc).  Might as well leverage your fame with your personal interests and make hay while you can.

Zach Kruse -   Among running backs with at least 40 attempts in 2020, Packers rookie A.J. Dillon was first in PFF's "Elusive rating."   He forced 18 missed tackles on just 48 touches.

I watched a YouTube clip that showed his "best" plays from this year.  Came away amazed at how many times he made guys "whiff" early in the run.

Either these safeties and corners didn't want to take him on head up, or he has a little "shifty" in him.  Or both.

For a guy his size, Dillon has really unremarkable power and really incredible feet.

Not sure I see the really unremarkable power bit, but I guess it depends on how we're defining power.  He certainly drags tacklers and generally has to be brought down, you can't just knock him off balance, but I agree that given his size and strength you'd expect him to brutalize on contact more.  Just personally speaking though, if I had to balance those two traits in a RB this is absolutely the way I'd prefer they were stacked.

I couldn't agree more that I'd rather have the elite feet than John Kuhn. But it's not just his ability. It's also his style. He looks to bounce a lot.

I think we'll be okay with him....but I hope he stays healthy given the hits he's gonna be taking and our (current) lack of anybody we can entrust with serious carries backing him up.
