Default Packer defends picking AJ Dillon for All Decade Team over Etienne

From the Packer and Durham show Monday where Mark Packer selected A.J. Dillon over Travis Etienne while Wes Durham selected Etienne.

Packer: "You my friend need to turn in your ACC card. There is no way that you can have a guy make three-time All-ACC and not be All decade. I don't care the position. I don't care the school, don't care what he graduated in. Three-time All-ACC and did not make the All-Decade team. How does that happen?"

Durham: "Because I am betting the money that the running back at Clemson has a chance to a chance to be a three-time All-ACC Player of the Year."

Packer: "That is true, but, however, Wes we are talking about a particular decade. We are in a new decade."

Durham: "But Pack he is a two-time ACC Player of the Year right now."

I agree with Wes Durham here. 2-time ACC Player of the Year trumps 3-time All-ACC.

Packer needs a restart on his day. Get up on the other side of the bed or something. ET over Dillion all day any day.

Packer needed to provide SOME debate with a different point of view. Plus, Iím sure he strives to appear unbiased towards his Alma Mater Clemson. 😀

ETN all day 😊

Interesting debate. Either would be a good choice. Would be interesting to see what Dillon could do in our offense as he gained his yards when everyone in the stadium knew he was getting the ball.

How do their stats compare? Isn't Etienne poised to shatter the ACC rushing yards record?

It is not even close! Etienne is position to break just about every ACC running back record and he already has a few of them.

That is what I thought. It seems like a pretty significant piece of information to overlook.

The one thing that Dillon has over ETN is Dillon did it when he was the only thing the defenses had to look out for. Without a Trevor Lawrence at QB (or even a decent QB) defenses could and did focus all their attention on stopping Dillon. If ETN were in that situation I’m not sure his stats would be nearly as good as they are.

Packs argument is a poor one though

Also Etienne led the country in yards after contact with 5.1. Agree, Packers argument was very weak.
