He would've been great for are secondary and better than anybody else we have drafted him
Couldn't pass up on the talent that is Ryan Shazier
'Cause of his funny name.
Those 2 picks were gimmee's though.... One was a good play, but a Gimmee none the less.
What are you crazy???!!!
Draft a defensive back before the fifth round??!! That's the most idiotic thing I've ever heard of!
If I'm remembering correctly. His scouting report had some significant question marks regarding coverage skills, and stiffness in his hips. Good in run support. I was hoping they'd pass on him. I think he'll be a good player, not a game changer over the long haul.
He was the key defender against the Pats. Did fantastic on Gronk for most of the game. He's a player.
I think there was a charge on him for accepting money or something. But a lot of his knocks I think stemmed from the failure of Mark Barrone and not Ha Ha in particular. The "he's surrounded by so much talent" debate.
He wouldn't have played for 3 years if we had drafted him
Well, it looks like Seattle passed on him.
Another typical real steel post. SMH
Flaming isn't allowed here. IOW, if you don't have anything nice to say...
Then it was a smolder TTF Ha-ha
Wasn't Dix the CB that completely blew the 2 point conversion hail mary? Edit: Yes, yes he was, slowest hail mary in history and he completely misjudged it.
It appeared to me he lost it in the lights. The angle of the throw and with so much arch on it I think he lost it . He started to break and then he froze . I give him a pass on that 1. Wilson has a special knack for lobbing balls and dropping them on a spot .
In Other Words!
He gets no pass, he sucked badly on that play, break that up and GB still wins on their upcoming FG. Just one of several examples of GB giving that game away.
I think the REAL question should be why did his parents name him Ha Ha? Are they both like comedians or something? Or was that what they were hoping he would be? Kinda like how I named my son Ben because I would like for him to be a great Steeler? He does look like a pretty good player though and probably has a higher ceiling than Mitchell. I wouldn't mind having him. They could fix our defensive backfield by simply SIGNING DEVON MCCOURTY THOUGH!
His real name is Ha'Sean. <drops the microphone>
Dude how in the crap do you get HA HA from Ha'Sean??? Some things are just beyond understanding.
Ok so I went and looked in to it and apparently his mamaw nicknamed him that and it just stuck. It's funny though that even announcers call him that. Usually they go with the actual given name of the player. Wouldn't that be like if they only referred to Bettis as "The Bus" for the whole game? I wonder if they even know it is a nickname?
If you compare Dix's output this year with Mitchell's last year for Carolina, there isn't too much to call between them (ignoring the fact that Dix is a rookie for the moment).
Mitchell had more sacks and Ints. In fact, looking at Mitchell's stats, you can see how a front office would be reasonably confident that he would be fine as a replacement for Clark.
Unfortunately, if you compare Dix's output with Mitchell's this year, Mitchell sucks like hell.
The moral of the story is that hindsight is a great thing. We passed on Favre and Marino as well... whoever was in charge back then sure must have been bad at their job as well, I guess.
clinton dix was the reason the packers lost yesterday..
