Re: Redskins trade for Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

We gave the Packers the Dix on this trade.

A 4th round pick in a draft we have extra picks for another legit Bama Boy. Its a fucking win even it he leaves after the year. We would recoup a comp pick the next year and I'm ready to keep this 2018 train rollin' down the line.

Re: Redskins trade for Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

I don't think we trade if we don't have an extension plan in place.

Doesn't seem the new skins way of doing things (i'm ok with that)

Did not realize it but Dix is only 25 years old.

On the other hand, Dix's words don't reflect the dissatisfaction that GBay seemed to have with him:

I think, when he gets into the locker room with DJS and the 'Bama boys, he will fit in just fine. I still think, if they use him right, he and DJS could be real ballhawks. However, given the communication concerns already existing in the secondary, it is important that he plays well with others.
As a guy living in Packer land whose wife watches every Packer game (and therefore so do I), I can tell you that he's a shitty tackler. He is VERY good in coverage for a safety though. And seems to be an on-field leader, although I had heard whispers that he isn't great in the locker room.

My main concern is the locker room stuff. I definitely think he'll be a good player on the field, and I'm absolutely certain he'll be better than Nicholson.

Hmm. Don't like weak tackling from the last line of defense, the FS, especially with swearinger playing up so much. Also don't like locker room issues. No way would I extend someone like this before seeing how he synchs a month from now. Coverage without tackling does not work well in a 1 high defense which would be ideal for swearinger. Is it a good deal? We won't know until Dec

Seriously, Norman, Dix, DJS and Dunbar are a solid group. Maybe not legion of boom solid, but damn solid nonetheless.


Area 51. This is a fantastic pickup. Perfect timing too with Matty Ice coming to town.

Yes our front 7 is nasty but DJS has been an absolute ball hawk. With or without a good front 7 he has an uncanny nack of being around the ball....

Re: Redskins trade for Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

Love the move. not as worried about the leadership aspect. Yes Swearinger is a vocal focus, but in my opinion Jonathan Allen is the leader of the defense, watch the post game interviews this year. He was pissed after the giants game for sure. He is the guy that keeps the team on task. It might be good for Dix to be the not leader.

Thank you for your informed observations on HaHa.
I figured there must be some minuses to HaHa for the Packers to give up on him. Really great he is excellent in coverage...that is awesome and very important.
Shitty tackling on the other hand is a problem. Bad Tackling can sometimes be fixed. Bad mechanics or angle is fixable.
I hope it is not lack of toughness or injuries, that is more difficult to overcome and sometimes cannot be corrected. I hope he can correct it.
For me tackling for a defensive players is critically important and the best safety's are excellent tacklers.
