Do people actually think the running game is bad? I thought they struggled in short yardage situations but did great otherwise. Enter AJ Dillon...
Enter AJ Dillon...
Dillon should help on short yardage and more
Here's Vic talking about what AJ Dillon brings to the PASSING game
Matt from Minneapolis, MN
Dillon and Jones: "Thunder and Lightning." I know we all love a catchy nickname but, in reality, what does having a "Thunder and Lightning" backfield do to a defense? What are the benefits other than it sounds neat?
It allows you to dictate to the defense. When you go big, they have to go big, too. When you go small and quick, they have to do the same. Having a running back with the size and power Dillon possesses will keep a linebacker on the field. The defense doesn't dare get light in the pants up front with Dillon in the game, or the Packers will pound. We saw that with Eddie Lacy. This is why I say you're not really running the ball if you're not running it with power. The defenders a defense uses to stop a speed back are the same defenders it uses to defend against the pass.
The big back opens up the passing game. Scheme personnel, not schemes.
That is fantastic pass-run game analysis

Good to hear. Darius Sheppard needs to stay away from any kind of retrurning on ST's.

He’s been gone longer than most players. Was he sick?
A reporter brought this up today. Asked MLF if AJ had suffered some complications as a result of COVID. He declined to answer. Not a good sign.
Myocarditis? All those wonderful folks who yip, "It's just a bad flu" should talk to a young guy I know who has myocarditis after his doc suspected an early case of covid. Nothing to fool with, and just one of the potential long-term effects of covid.
Hopefully that’s not the case here or his season is over.
Heck hopefully not his career....
In many cases, myocarditis improves on its own or with treatment, leading to a complete recovery. Myocarditis treatment focuses on the cause and the symptoms, such as heart failure. In mild cases, persons should avoid competitive sports for at least three to six months.
Why the fuck are we speculating about myocarditis? JFC...
Maybe he's on a ventilator?
If he's on a ventilator, that's pretty heavy to carry in one hand and the football in the other.
How long until Y.A. researches ventilators?
Heard it was a bad case of the crabs. Can’t shake ‘em.
Yes, it's confidentiality. Yes, he's been gone a month. Yes, it's speculation. Yes, it's the innernet. Yes, it's concerning. Yes, I hope it's not true.
He’s back from the dead. Zombie Dillon cannot be stopped!
He's gotten quite pale....I guess death will do that you a guy.
How did his uniform get dirty?
