One of the most disappointing players on the Green Bay Packers this season has been safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. There really isn’t any debate about that.
But Clinton-Dix wants you to know that he is really not disappointing.
Like he REALLY wants you to know that. They just don’t throw the ball his way!
Must be because he is so damn good!
Let’s check in.
“Nobody’s throwing the ball my way,” he says. “I’m not being targeted.”
Okay, tell me more…
“If you guys just come up [to the film room] and watch me and watch where I’m at, where you think the ball’s supposed to be going, and it’s not going there. There’s a reason why it’s not going there,” Clinton-Dix said. “I’m telling you, I’m sitting on everything. I’m getting everything that comes my way.”
Yes, yes, no one will possibly throw your way, I follow…
“I’m a free safety,” Clinton-Dix said. “The one responsibility I have is making the play, really. So I take those chances. But I mean I get all these tips and tendencies from [safeties coach Darren Perry] and they hold true every game, so I’m telling you every time I’m around the ball. Look. I want you guys to look. I’m around the ball and the quarterback is not coming my way. That’s just the bottom line. Check it out.”
You’re a free safety and the quarterback is not coming your way, I see…
“I can’t afford to miss passes like that because they don’t come my way,” Clinton-Dix said about the interception he didn’t make against Baltimore. “That’s just the bottom line, whether I’m covering a receiver or a tight end, the ball’s never thrown my way. You all go back and check that out and let me know what you all think. I’d like this feedback.”
Except when it is!
Let’s get that feedback, though. Let’s all go back and look at the tape.
Does anyone ever throw the ball towards Ha Ha Clinton-Dix?
He’s just too good of a safety!
