Let's Talk Football is the best football video IMO. Thank you Aaron and Andy. Aaron Rodgers is the best quarterback I've seen IMO.
Been watching since 1960.

I suspect that the issue of playing starters against Detroit is overblown. Only 53 are on the roster and only 48 will be active. GB isn't going to release players. So, let's take a look.

GB does have 5 players on the Covid list, so some elevations from the PS to the active roster are possible. That's 5 plus 2 more PS elevations that are normally allowed.

OL: Jake Hanson could start at OC. Braden could start at OG or RT. Cole Van Lanen could get called up to play at a guard spot. GB has Dietzen, OC Michal Menet, and OT Adrian Ealy on the PS. 3 PS guys starting?

TE: Kaufusi could get promoted. He'd be the fourth promotion.

RB: Patrick Taylor could be the sole RB? Kerrith Whyte could be the 2nd RB and PR and KR. 5th promotion.

WR: Winfree and ESB. Need two more. WRs Chris Blair and Josh Malone would be 7 promotions.

QB: Love and Benkert? 8th promotion (one more than is allowed absent more new Covid cases).

DL: Anderson promoted again paired with Heflin. Need 2 or three more DL players. DL RJ McIntosh? Probably see some of Slaton/Lancaster. 10 promotions, 3 more than allowed.

LB: Can't lose Campbell or really Barnes either. So Garvin, Galeai at OLB, Burks and McDuffie. Need a couple more LBs. GB has Hamilton and the Kumbayi guy on the PS, but that would be 12 promotions (+5).

DB: King, Yiadom and Jean-Charles, anyone? Henry Black plus the debuts of Shawn Davis and Vernon Scott at safety, anyone?

So, it really means that some guys GB can't lose will play either part-time or not at all. AR, Adams, (probably Lazard and MVS), Jones and Dillon, Davis, Deguara and Lewis (???), and probably cross their fingers on the OL.

On D, Clark, Gary, Preston Smith (just agree to pay his incentive for 10 sacks if the team doesn't want to play him so he can earn it), Douglas, Stokes, Amos (slow walk the Covid test results so Savage stays on the Covid list), Campbell and Barnes.
