Every Tuesday, Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon appears on “Nine 2 Noon with John Kuhn” on 97.3 The Game in Milwaukee. This week, Dillon was asked several questions regarding the Packers win on Christmas Day against the Miami Dolphins.
AJ Dillon Addresses The Biggest Reason Why the Packers Won
John Kuhn started the interview by asking Dillon what he felt the biggest reason was for the Packers’ win on Sunday. Dillon responded:
“I think the biggest reason, we got to say, is playing complimentary football. I know we’ve been talking about it, especially early on in the season when things weren’t really going our way. The special teams starting us off with Keisean’s big return. It kind of ignited us an offense. And when the offense, we had our backs against the ropes, and we weren’t as hot, the defense stepped up.”
Changes in Outlook on the Packers Team
Another question AJ Dillon was asked had to do with how the outlook of the team has changed. It was noted that it seems that more players are buying into their roles on their team. Dillon was asked about what the vibe in the locker room is like right now. He responded:
“In my time being here, every year before this year, we were 13-3. First in the North. Riding that high. This is the first year for me, being on the Packers, that as a team we’ve had adversity, we have a losing record, and we’re losing multiple games in a row.
I think that some of these games, all of these games that we’ve won here in a row, we’ve been down at some point, and I think that it’s just realizing that just because we’re down, just because things aren’t going our way, doesn’t mean we’re not feeling it. Sometimes, we’ve found ways to win. Sometimes it’s prettier than others. Sometimes it goes all the way down to the final minute. But we find a way to win, and that’s all that matters.
How Keisean Nixon Has Lifted the Team
Kuhn wanted Dillon to expand on his mentioning of Nixon earlier in the interview and describe the impact he has on the team as a whole.
“Keisean is an awesome guy. Obviously, the defensive guys get to see him a little bit more than I do. But anytime I’ve had the opportunity to talk to him, he’s always got a lot of energy. He’s a really nice guy. And guys in the locker room respect him a ton.”
