    He would be awesome on there. His dry/smart *** sense of humor would translate well to the show. I want him to do weekend update though...screw that other guy that does it. Rodgers would be perfect for it.

    I have mixed feeling about this.
    Let's face it. SNL has just downright sucked these last few years. They should quit while they are behind.
    I have doubts that even Aaron could make one show be good, but hopefully he could pull it off.
    Yeah, I would tune in of course but if it starts to be unfunny I would have no problem leaving or turning it off.
    Aw, who am I kidding? I'd probably end up watching the whole damn thing hoping not to miss if there is a big laugh coming later on.

    Too bad there isn't a better comedy/variety/skit show he could appear on instead.
    I miss Carol Burnett.
    We need shows and talent like hers back. Not all this reality show crap.

    I wonder how serious this is.

    He said he bumped into a few cast members (who don't really have any pull), and he didn't really specify if he would host or just make a drop-in cameo.

    I say that because in SNL's 37-year history only 4 quarterbacks have hosted the show (Joe Montana with co-host Walter Payton in 1986, Peyton Manning in 2007, Fran Tarkenton in 1977 and Tom Brady in 2004.)


    Brady and Peyton hosted after Super Bowl victories.

    The logical choice would be to have Eli host after becoming the toast of New York yet again.

    To me, it seems like a longshot or wishful thinking because Aaron talked about wanting to host SNL on his previous podcast.

    You would think he was awesome if he were singing a duet with Kim Kardashian:D

    Reminds me of these classic bits they did.
    I would love to see the Joe Montana Sincere Guy Stu again.

    The United Way skit was hilarious! As far as SNL sports moments it ranks up there with John Bulushi's "Little Chocoalte Donuts" commercial

    As fun as it may be, I would rather have the whole team including Rodgers think about how they can get back to the Super Bowl and get their first/second rings. The playoffs were just inexcusable. Most devastating loss ever save for XXXII.

    Yes, the players and staff are all real people and need to have fun and relax. I get that. I know they need to blow off some steam and I would hope they do so that they can return to the 2012 season fresh, eager, and excited. SNL though? I don't know...there is just something about a Packer being a celebrity out side of football that just doesn't sit well with me. Makes me feel like maybe football isn't coming first (after family and health ofcourse.) and there minds are on other things..like their next endorsement. Call me crazy I guess.

    Just finished watching some of Peytons old commercials. Saw a couple I hadn't seen but for the most part they were preety good. Looking forward to more commercials from Rodgers & the guys. Also looking forward to Rodgers being on SNL. Can't PASS that up.

    Yeah I suppose I am crazy. I just really was hoping for repeat championships. I'm sure the sting will wear off soon.

    I know, right?
    And when the bell boy says "Your going down."
    I can just hear and see Payton respond with "On you? You bet." Drops to knees.
    And the other one with the fruit basket: "Don't choke on it."
    Peyton: "I don't think so. I've seen bigger."
    Maid: "Take a hike."
    Peyton: "No problem. Your'e not really my type anyway."
