You don’t follow the Packers if you think he has goodwill with the team management.
In the article linked and quoted in post #3176, Rodgers stated that football took up 187 days, leaving him 178 days to work in the 46 required to do Jeopardy. Doesn't sound unmanageable to me.
There's obviously plenty of days available. But those days may not all be when Jeopardy! usually likes to shoot. Rodgers would have free time from mid-January to mid-July, but I'm sure Jeopardy! usually has plenty of filming dates in August-December, so if they hired Rodgers, someone would have to make some concessions, at least for the next couple years while he's still playing football.
I don't think the Jeopardy shooting schedule is set in stone, but obviously they'll work that out with whomever they ultimately choose as host.

If Anderson Cooper wants it, it's his. A natural fit, close to perfect.
Arrgghh. Preempted by closing arguments.
No guarantee you, or anyone else, will agree.
I'm not a big fan of AC as a journalist/commentator going in. But he slid into this role of Jeopardy host effortlessly. No sense of pushing or auditioning or trying to find his way: he was home. Role fit him like a glove.
Anderson Cooper has an annoying habit of delaying his response to the question a bit longer than is comfortable. Most hosts (including Alex) basically answer immediately. Cooper seems to have a slight delay between the contestant's question and whether it was correct or not, almost as if he just waits for the judge's response.
The hosts do have the correct question on their screen to respond immediately, and you can tell when an answer is almost but not quite right because of the delay as the host waits for the judge to rule. It seems like Cooper is waiting for the ruling instead of seeing the answer and making a judgement on the spot. I just find the delay irritating. It's not a hugely long pause (well under half a second) but I noticed it and it was infuriating - it made it seem like the contestant almost got it but they had to be sure.
But other than that, it went well.
How can you classify it as a habit after one episode? I noticed a slight pause on a few times, but no more so than with other guest hosts.
I noticed the same. I thought he did very well but he does delay just a few hundredths of a second and you can tell.
My suspicion is that it's his first show and he was being very careful about any marginally questionable answer. I expect as he gets more used to things he will feel more free to make the call.
It also may be that he was told to wait for confirmation before declaring a marginal answer as correct. As othres have said, I'm sure he'll get more comfortable as it goes on.
I do think that AC, even after one episode, is the best of the bunch so far.
Of course, as I have said before, none of them will be as good as Alex was because...well...they're NOT Alex!
Anderson has a ton of reps doing stuff like this, so it's not surprising he was good right off the bat. But I don't think that should be a deciding factor, because anyone who gets a chance to do this for a period of time will develop that polished, host rhythm, so they should be basing their decision on other factors than just how polished a guest host seemed.
Yep. I'm not surprised. Perhaps a little over-qualified.
I am enjoying these episodes.
I was less impressed with AC than some of you. He's smooth, because he's got decades of live TV experience. But I didn't feel as much warmth from him, like I did some of the others. Also, the slight gap in between the contestant's response and his (mentioned above) was disconcerting.
But it's only two days. I'm keeping an open mind.
FWIW, I'm a big AC fan. His NYE w/Andy Cohen is far & away the best NYE show. So it's not him, it's just the way he comes across so far.
I know that pause is akward, but I feel like everybody had that pause. I'm pretty sure that Alex used to read the whole game beforehand (such as to know the correct responses himself) and wasn't afraid of flubbing a call.
I did notice they seemed to insert some remarks by Aaron in between questions that might have been recorded post game. Like they needed to fill time or something. I'm having a hard time articulating my sentiments here.
I agree completely. While he did a very good job, and I like AC (and LOVED him as The Mole host), I didn't feel engaged. I'm hoping he'll grow on me as he gets a few more episodes under his belt.
A lot of clickbait but not much substance.
I enjoyed AC, he’d be fine as the permanent host.
