Every now and then you sit in a press conference that you know has wow factor to it. Today Ha Ha Clinton-Dix had a professional, spirited and forthright one that should excite anyone associated with the #Redskins— Lake Lewis Jr (@LakeLewis) October 31, 2018
A quote I didn't expect Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to give today: "I love the [marching] band. Their locker room was right across the hall from ours when we played here for away games and I always stuck my head in and told them thank you and how much I appreciated them."— Jake Kring-Schreifels (@jakeks19) October 31, 2018
New Redskins safety HaHa Clinton-Dix said he loves being in Washington. He's tight with D.J. Swearinger and admired late safety Sean Taylor. “I'm so excited to be here," Clinton-Dix said. "You guys don't even understand. You'll see."https://t.co/NB6cEFo2F1— John Keim (@john_keim) October 31, 2018
DJ Swearinger said no chance HaHa Clinton-Dix joins the Bama boys in the locker room. Said his locker is going right here next to me! Seems elated for the add. #HaHaClintonDix #httr #DJSwearinger @NBCSRedskins— Julie Donaldson (@JDonaldsonNBCS) October 31, 2018
Other funny exchange about Ha Ha with DJ was about his locker. Currently, Clinton-Dix's locker is next to Allen, Payne and Ryan Anderson.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) October 31, 2018
DJ said that will be rectified. He will give up his second locker and Ha Ha will join the DB's ASAP.
"I think it'll take about 3-4 weeks to get comfortable," Swearinger said. "But that's when we need to be hitting our stride.— michael phillips (@michaelpRTD) October 31, 2018
"When he gets comfortable, it's going to be very scary. I don't know where they're going to throw it."https://t.co/lydMguDm2w
Will Ha Ha Clinton-Dix play Sunday?— NBC Sports Redskins (@NBCSRedskins) October 31, 2018
Judging by this answer, yep, he will. pic.twitter.com/HFA1ThtJKt
Ha Ha Clinton-Dix: "I’m happy to be a part of this organization, I can’t preach that enough. I’m ready to put on a show." https://t.co/jsYYSNYDyX— Dan Steinberg (@dcsportsbog) October 31, 2018
This is the first day these players can return from IR (if so designated): Byron Marshall (Nov. 5) -- he will return; Trey Quinn (11/12), Cam Sims (11/12) and Rob Kelley (11/19).— John Keim (@john_keim) October 31, 2018
Marshall has been activated. Presumably, he will play starting against Tampa. They can activate one more player.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) October 31, 2018
Additionally, all the PUP/NFI players are eligible whenever they are activated. Aka Holsey or McGee could be brought up at any time.
Gruden says they intend on activating Byron Marshall, hence his presence at practice today. They’ve started his clock. Could activate any time.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) October 31, 2018
Quinn is getting close, but they haven’t decided on the other IR spot yet.
After talking with a few people, I'd be very surprised if Chris Thompson plays on Sunday.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) October 31, 2018
Thompson said he's day-to-day and it will come down to pain tolerance, but he's in a LOT of pain and getting hit isn't going to help. He likely needs to let it heal a little bit.
There have been questions about his effort and tackling, some of which are legitimate. As the last line of defense, you have to be able to make a tackle. Can't get run over like he did here. pic.twitter.com/xqkHSqoWdA— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) October 31, 2018
One of HHCD's best plays this year was his INT vs the Bills. Appeared to be playing deep half, with a seam route inside and a double move outside. Stays patient and reads the QB for the ball, beats the WR to the spot for the INT pic.twitter.com/ZRiqEbtFjw— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) October 31, 2018
Now, I know CT will never throw his QB under the bus but I'm going to add a little independent analysis...— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) October 31, 2018
If it's gotta happen NOW and NOW doesn't happen...Smith has to eat it. He can't throw that ball late. That hit CT took is why.
"I can’t think of a situation this year ever that I have been cautious with the football," Alex Smith said today. https://t.co/yrFPHfWFeL— Dan Steinberg (@dcsportsbog) October 31, 2018
QBs throwing the lowest % of INTERCEPTIONS per pass attempt.— NFL Matchup on ESPN (@NFLMatchup) October 31, 2018

Boy, Steve Sarkisian is an awful play caller in the red zone. His team has made 18 trips to the red zone and settled for eight field goals while only scoring nine touchdow — oh wait, that's the Redskins.— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) November 1, 2018
Swearinger's first INT was a great play, but I thought this was every bit as good. Eyes the corner route initially, works down to take away crosser from back side, then jumps the dump off to Barkley. #Redskins pic.twitter.com/76kPzzlWMK— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) October 31, 2018
How many other rookie defensive players would you rather have than Daron Payne? That number is getting smaller and smaller. https://t.co/28WSHNQvId— NBC Sports Redskins (@NBCSRedskins) October 31, 2018
One random note from Alex Smith (via his podcast) on this play. Watch Smith after the ball is snapped. Typically, QB executes a boot fake or something to hold backside DE. But in 4 min drill, he “follows” RB as a precaution in case of a fumble. https://t.co/WrgqlR40qy— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) November 1, 2018
Alex Smith accuracy issues are the most strange. Completion percentage hasnt been this low since 2013 https://t.co/VljZHTg41e— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) October 31, 2018
The Redskins rank second in the NFL in rush defense. Well, so what, says Dan Quinn. “They just happen to be one of the very best at defending it. That doesn’t mean we don’t go down that road.” https://t.co/2JWS70kgih— Jason Butt (@JasonHButt) October 31, 2018
Skins odds to win NFC East keep ticking up. And if anybody wants to bet the NYG I’ll take your action pic.twitter.com/9mI4T9u7uY— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) October 31, 2018
Broncos safety Su'a Cravens was in Washington DC today for his $651,458 salary grievance hearing against Redskins. His agent Peter Schaffer argued Cravens should have been placed on IR, not "left squad" list last yr. Thus the $651,408. Cravens back for practice WED. #9sports— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) October 30, 2018
Quick with absolutely zero hesitation.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) October 31, 2018
Chesson has earned his spot not only on the 53, but on the 46 with his ST play. He's making plays on so many of his snaps.
Real saving grace doing what Apke couldn't as an impact player there thanks to his speed. https://t.co/x9faLTJyoE
Packers’ GM Brian Gutekunst insists Green Bay is not surrendering its season after trading away former Pro-Bowl safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and RB/WR Ty Montgomery.https://t.co/L0WyEAUzpz— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 1, 2018
