Aaron Rodgers did not have a strong start to the 2021 season. In the Green Bay Packers' loss to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Rodgers completed just 15 of his 28 passes for 133 yards and two interceptions, leading him to have a passer rating of 36.8. It was one of the worst games of his career, but does it mean Rodgers will be the new host of Jeopardy! since the search for a new host continues?
Rodgers was a guest host on Jeopardy! and has expressed interest in being the permanent host. "I don't think I'd need to give up football to do it," Rodgers told The Ringer in April. "They film 46 days a year. I worked 187 this year in Green Bay. That gives me, eh—[pauses]—178 days to do Jeopardy! So I feel like I could fit 46 into that 178 and make it work. It would be a dream job for sure, and I'm not shy at all about saying I want the job. That's how I went into it. I want an opportunity to be in the mix." Here's a look at fans speculating Rodgers making the jump to Jeopardy!

One person wrote: "That's adorable you think that suit isn't in his locker room." As Rodgers said, he can be the host of Jeopardy! and still be QB1 for the Packers.prevnext

One fan wrote: "He said he woulda retired if they offered it. So your saying this hit makes him wanna play football more?" Marcus Davenport was one of the many Saints defenders that got after Rodgers on Sunday.prevnext
I’ll take famous people for $500
This player held out all summer just to show up the first day, sign a new deal, & get his way. Also hosted this show, & is playing more like host than MVP. For sure not playing like “Last Dance” MJ.

One fan tweeted: "I just know Aaron Rodgers is reconsidering hosting Jeopardy after playing like this. Sad!" The thing about Sunday's performance is it's just Week 1 and there's still a lot of football to be played.prevnext

Get them out of your system.
And one fan asked: "What do you call a player who was Washed up in 2019, then wins MVP and looks washed up again in 2020?" I'm sure Rodgers has receipts on these tweets as he continues to play this season.prev
