Throughout the summer, the Green Bay Packers talked about getting running backs Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillon on the field together. Unfortunately, the early returns on the “Pony” package has not yielded the results that many have hoped for.
Currently, the team is averaging 9.3 plays out of the two-back personnel through three games of the season. Of those 28 plays, 22 of them have featured a split back gun backfield in some form or fashion. That includes the Packers sticking in split back gun, the Packers motioning out of split back gun or the Packers motioning into split back gun.
