AJ Dillon Challenged To Produce For An Entire Season

Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon has been challenged to finally establish himself and produce consistently over a season.

AJ Dillon finished the 2022 season with 770 yards and seven touchdowns on 186 carries. Decent numbers, but that’s the point. AJ Dillon has always produced decent numbers, but not outstanding numbers, and not for long enough.

Packers running backs coach Ben Sirmans he’s working with Dillon on his aggressiveness and the way he starts games.

“I think that’s something that we talked about, and you bring up just a good point,” Sirmans said.

“And there’s been games when he’s started off the season pretty strong, but there was a point, we talked about it, where it was last year, I thought he could’ve been playing at a more aggressive level. We talked about it. Watched the tape, he saw what I was referring to and then he applied what we talked about to moving on.

“And understanding that, it’s gotta be right from the start. Hey, we know the things that we like that you did last year and when you played this way you are very effective, but when you play this way, you weren’t. So, we need to start off this way. So, there will be more of an emphasis on how we need to start.”

“This wasn’t the type of year and expectations that, not only he had for himself but from what I had for him and what others in this building had for him,” Sirmans said. “I think that he’s the type of person, at least from what he’s shown me, that he’s going to respond to that challenge and come out and have a much more productive year. And you saw a lot of great things in spurts, but that was just the problem, it was just in spurts. It wasn’t consistent, and that’s what our goal is.”
