I would say this is accurate. He stays back, sometimes to the defense's detriment.

I can't really put a finger on what happened to him. He was a very very good player in 2016 and has kinda gone downhill since then. From my eye test anyway.

I'm shocked PFF has him rated that highly.

How old is your daughter?

Clit Dicks is a much better player than Monte at this point. Plus being on a much less volatile defense with a stronger front 7 in front of him should elevate his play even more. We got better.

Now all of a sudden he's banged up? Weird. Just say you wanted more depth in the secondary.
Per Gruden today he's got a minor hip injury that required a procedure.

No doubt. I said pretty much exactly that a few pages back.

I guess my point was that he has a lot of potential to be better than he has been this season, because by my eye he was a fantastic player 2 years ago. And it's not like he's old.

Re: Redskins trade for Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

Saw today that their head coach said part of the reason the Packers were willing to trade was that they plan to be very active in free agency this coming offseason and knew they wouldn't get anything back for HaHa in 2020 as a result. This makes the trade make a lot more sense. Still wonder why they wouldn't have just resigned him. I guess I've heard that they expected him to be elite and he was just really good. I have a feeling that with the other defensive talent on this team he will be even better.

It seems some teams don't value safeties as much as they do with other positions. Last off season is great example, there were 2 or 3 FA safeties who are considered as quality starters available and yet there weren't many teams interested in them.

In the past few years they Packers have also let safeties Michah Hyde and Morgan Burnett get away.

That’s probably why combover Capers got canned, not valuing safeties.

Re: Redskins trade for Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

Solid pick up. We now have the Burgundy Boom.

On another note, is no one else disappointed that we did nothing to address our inadequate WR play? I would have loved to have picked up a WR. I could have seen Garçon coming back for a late round pick.

Sure. Some are disappointed. Not I. The problem with the passing game is not that receivers are getting open, its that AS is not in sync with what Gruden is trying to do. Receivers are running open most of the time but AS is waiting to long, not moving off read, etc.

Nobody we were going to get in a trade was going to do much of anything to fix the passing game problems.

Garçon is done...Doctson steady improvement the last several games, and getting back the injuried crowder and Quinn probably had the staff thinking this probably would help more than adding what was out there. Multiple reports confirmed they did explore adding at the position.

Re: Redskins trade for Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

A rental for a conditional 4th is a steal for this season. The real value test for Clinton-Dix will be on his next signing.

I’m just hoping that he and DJ don’t get into a contest to see who can run back a pick and wave the ball around in one hand the longest.

Monte Nicholson was trash this year. Wtf....yes another Troy Apke pick please, more of that all day.

Clinton-Dix is a very solid player who we should attempt to resign.
