Chris Hope's Stats:
INT Yards- 60

Hope made more tackles,but I didn't watch many Redskin games last year so I dunno how many chances he got.But I did see him hit a guy once and the dude's mouthpeice came flying out,so I am sure he can lay somebody out like Hope did.
If anything,our defensive backfield got better with Clark,I think he'll be better in coverage than Hope was.
And yes,we did draft Anthony Smith for a reason,to groom him into our FS of the future.Ryan Clark isn't the long-term answer IMHO,but he's a damn good FS.
Good point. With all the moving Troy does we want a FS that can cover well. I agree Clark will be better then Hope in coverage. Also Clark can hit. I read somewhere he gave Jamal Lewis a nice shot. I think it might have been Clarks rookie year.
