The board Troll finally features another TheVOR special edition from a month and running. Been saying this on the Tundra for a while.
Thanks for once again validating my ideas in the media. Been going on for years!

Dillion needs to be getting 5-8 touches a game MINIMUM, especially in Short Yardage and Goal Line offense. Lets face it, he's going to be a huge part of this offense in 2021. With his NASTY BRUTAL PUNISHING Running style and disposition as a runner? The Cold weather playoffs approaching? He needs to start getting touches, PERIOD! Who wants to tackle this kid when the playoffs arrive and it's Zero degrees in Lambeau field? Nobody!

Been clambering for more touches all year.

I love Aaron Jones! He won't be back people! Dillon and Williams (maybe) next season. Time to "Release the Karcken!!" GET THAT BALL TO DILLION ALREADY!!! Been talking about it for long before the media caught up...

Yes, let’s trust the rookie who hasn’t played much instead of the dependable vets who’ve gotten it done for four years

What are you afraid of here? The dude has been running the rock successfully since he was old enough to know what a football is? What haven't we already seen between GB and BC? The dude is a freeking MONSTER waiting to be released?

You sound like the Packers front office! Just keep trotting out the same guy's for the same same.. Jones is a stud. I'd argue that if Dillion had Williams reps? We'd be way on the plus side, more 1st downs, more TD's in short yardage.

Sorry, not buying into your same same "Less is More" mentality. This kid can freekin play. One touch last week, 18 yards? Time to see more.. 4.8 average on the year. We need more.

Jamaal Williams, 4.2 per carry, Aaron Jones is a stud. Not suggesting we're taking his reps!.

What am I afraid of? Maybe a mistake that costs us a trip to the Super Bowl. Like Bosticks Boner.

Ride the horse that got you there.

Or let's overuse #33 before playoffs and get him hurt because ML doesn't want Dillon to take Williams place when he's hurt. Let's hurt them both prior to playoffs. Genius. Looks like we need to call up another RB to me and use Dillon more.

I think the issue right now is missing so much time due to covid. He might be starting over and has to re-earn trust with the coaching staff. Even before that though, I thought they should have used him a bit more.

Running ability is just part of the job. Being assignment sure, ability to pass block, and receiving ability all play a hand in getting snaps. Sure he can run but if he can’t do the others the defense would quickly catch on to him only being in on run plays.

Agree with you but not in close games where we have a good chance at the #1 seed. If we could actually play a full four quarters, and have a nice lead, give the man some snaps.
