"I'm all in with Dom." Packers Safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix Responds to Accusations on Twitter

"I'm all in with Dom." Packers Safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix Responds to Accusations on Twitter

It's not truly the offseason in the NFL until unwarranted drama backpedals its way across the surface of social media and nose-dives into the news feeds and comments sections of Twitter and Instagram users alike.

Following the release of former Packers cornerback Sam Shields on Wednesday, the team's Pro Bowl safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix offered what was seen as a personal shout-out on Instagram to his former defensive colleague of three seasons. A personal shout-out is all Clinton-Dix's post should've been recognized as, however, there was a brief passage that alerted many conspiracy theorists.

In the lengthy caption, Clinton-Dix wrote, "Thank you for having my back. Thank you for lining up and playing whatever Dom Capers called rather WE liked it or not you was all in." Clinton-Dix was referencing the Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers, who is on the hot seat in many a fans' minds after a lackluster 2016 season in which the Packers pass defense finished the regular season ranked 31st of 32 teams.

Many decoded Clinton-Dix's caption for themselves and drew their own conclusions. Clinton-Dix, however, was quick to set the record straight on Twitter.

What Clinton-Dix seemed to be referring to were his own unnamed teammates, who can fairly share just as much of the blame for 2016's defensive woes as their defensive coordinator can. All the more reason why the Second-team All-Pro seemed to have to clarify on what he truly meant.

Despite this fact, it would be virtually impossible to cycle through any club in the National Football League whose defensive coordinator has the complete and unbridled support of each and every player in his unit. Many players have their own thought processes and their own concepts of what may or may not work best en route to a team's success. Even with that fact, players like Clinton-Dix would be the last of the bunch to take a "shot" at one of his bosses on social media. Fake news; it's that time of the year.

With the dismal performance put on by the Packers defense in 2016, Clinton-Dix was one of the spots that illuminated the entire group. He finished second on the team in tackles, 61, sitting behind only fellow safety Morgan Burnett who led with 68 despite missing one game. Clinton-Dix astoundingly played all 1,236 defensive snaps for the Packers this season and led the team in interceptions with five, recording two multi-interception games.

I'm still waiting for fans here to explain to Ha-Ha Clinton Dix what he thinks and feels...
Go with minuses. I know how truth can hurt...

That is astounding. A true workhorse on a team otherwise plagued by injuries.

Mike Daniels and Ha Ha Clinton Dix seem to be able to do the impossible on this Team and that is STAYING HEALTHY for most of the season! That is simply amazing.

Give them credit for being healthy. -- However, they are the best two on the 'D'. --- That's part of the problem. --- A top "D" has a lot more than what these two offer.

I dont care how he tried to explain it after the fact, thats a shot at Capers. Even when he tried to say it wasnt the best compliment he could give to Dom was his calls are "good enough". LOL
