    I hope, as time goes by, we will refer to him as Ha'Sean. "Ha Ha" sounds like a precocious 12 year old girl from Hawaii.

    Don´t think that has anything to do with it. There never was a plan to retire Woodson´s number and they probably asked Clinton-Dix to chose a vacant one.

    Woodson was publicly critical of the fact there were no adjustments made at halftime. I take that to be the key reason he was unceremoniously sent packing with no offer of a renegotiation.

    Dang-it! My wife is going to kill me for cancelling the party. And, I already ordered the green & gold balloons and custom napkins that read, "I luv Ted the GM"...

    Oh, well. Better late than never. Thanks for the insight, Whatthehell. You helped me dodge a bullet. I am sure that HaHa has read your post and is crying into his pillow now that he knows he is a bust. What a loser, eh?

    BTW, it would be really nice to know which future HOFer that Ted should have picked with #21? Please enlighten us. Thnx.

    :rolleyes:

    I would not expect Woodson's number to be retired...there have only been 5 of them plus Favre-in-waiting...a much higher bar than the HOF. But a little respect would have been in order except for the less than amicable parting.

    I really don´t know what prompted the Packers to not even try to renegotiate Woodson´s contract, especially after he offered to take a pay cut. But I wouldn´t read too much into Clinton-Dix getting his former number.

    Marqise Lee would have been a reach at a position of strength. You would prefer that to a player who represents great value at a position of need? Not only that, but you are advocating taking a player early from the deepest position available in this draft. We will still be able to get a very good WR in the 3rd.

    First 3 I checked for player rankings, HaHa more highly ranked:
    Draftek: HaHa : 14 Lee: 25
    WalterFootball: HaHa 12 - Lee 19
    CBS: HaHa 18 Lee 25


    I like Lee, I think he will be a good player. But HaHa will have a far bigger impact for the defense and the team in general. He was the leader of the nations best defense, directing players where to line up and calling coverages. We do not have a field general on our defense and HaHa can do that. He is not the fastest, hardest hitting, or the best cover guy. He is the best at understanding the game. And he does play fast - more quick twitch - he does hit hard and he is really good coverage guy. He is exactly what this defense needs.

    I can agree with ya. I was very pleased at how Lacy turned out, but was also concerned because of the two Bama RB flops that came before him. Lets just hope our "Bama luck" holds true.

    Lacy´s the perfect example that it doesn´t matter which college someone played for. All I know is that Clinton-Dix was the best free safety available and he perfectly fits a huge need on the team.

    I´m critical of Thompson at some points as well, but I really don´t know what he has to do to catch a break from some of you.

    Stop reading into stuff. I never even mentioned TT, did I ? All i said is that I hope he pans out basically and that I am not 100% pleased. And EVERYONE had the right to be skeptical about Lacy, look at the two RB's from bama that preceeded him, they both are sub-par at best. I am hoping for the best with dix and I hope he does start for us on day 1.

    Who else would have liked to draft at #21 the way the draft panned out??? Clinton-Dix was the perfect choice at the time.

    It was basically him or nothing..... I see that, we all see that. He was best player available. Does not mean I have to like it. Have some respect for other peoples opionions. I am not trashing yours, nor am I trashing TT. Just sating not 100% pleased, but it was a no brainer at the same time.

    We needed someone to break up the short fade route in the endzone to a tall receiver. Think of Cutler lofting the ball into the corner for Marshall, or any pass to Megatron. Our defensive backfield was not up to the challenge last year. Clinton-Dix is fast enough and tall enough to make a difference on those plays.

    Good pick. Hope it works.

    We don't have to worry about Kaepernick, turns out he really sucks. As a senior against Hawaii he had a horrible game. He went 14 for 26 and threw 2 picks in the loss. Kaep looked awful and looked loss in trying to figure out a very average Rainbow defense.

    My goodness I can't wrap my head around some of the negative posts or "bust" comments I am reading. This was the only pick to be made IMO when you consider all the variables. Without question safety was THE priority when you look at the non-existent statistics from the position last year. From day one Ha-Ha was considered 1 or 1A in regards to S ranking and most of us as well as draft "experts" thought he would be long gone come 21. You can plug this guy in and let him run with the job. He ran a pro-style D at Bama and Saban puts a TON of pressure on his safeties and the kid handled everything more than admirably. Also, as mentioned above this allows Hyde to stay in the hybrid type, Woody position from which I think he can thrive. There is no such thing as a slamdunk at 21 but when you consider the glaring need we had and the quality of player we got in the back third of the 1st I can't help but see how any of us can't be at least satisfied with the pick. I for one am all in on this one and can't wait to see Dix lighting chumps up! Now, make a move and go get Van Noy Teddy! GPG!

    Perfect in every way! Kids have good games, kids have bad games. Pros have good games. Pros have bad games.

    At 6'4 285? No. I can't even remember seeing him projected anywhere other than as a 3-4 end.

    Remember when I posted "Maybe there was a reason HaHa was wearing that packers shirt in the pic he posted?"
    That was a joke but who could have seen this coming? I knew pryor's stock was rising but I thought he would still go after Clinton Dix. Now I'm wondering if Pryor will line up at FS or SS

    Yeah, in his first year for sure. That certainly doesn't mean that he's playing out of position. If in season three he's still just a situational pass rusher, then yeah, maybe, but he has a lot better chance of being a three down player than pretty much anyone else on the dline and has almost the perfect build for the position.

    Bucannon would have been a reach at 21 and he was a reach at 27. He's a SS and not at all what the Packers need in terms of a cover guy. He'd have been an upgrade over Richardson probably but that's not nearly as valuable a position as FS in the game today much less the NFC north.

    Agreed. I thought Jones would be a good fit at 3-4 DE when he was drafted. He didn't have an impact last year, but maybe the ankle injury he suffered in camp was bothering him.

    Call me "Ritz McSaltine." I may need to change my avatar:

    I feel like the Packers front office struggling with Clinton-Dix's name/nickname would have made a good Chappelle Show sketch. Chappelle in white face always made me chuckle. Has it really been 10 years?:
