Hall

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall doesn’t hesitate to be completely honest. He’ll blast the officials if he feels he’s been wronged -- even when he most certainly hasn’t. He’ll predict that he’ll try to hit an opposing injured quarterback where it’ll hurt the most, even though he sometimes disappears in games like that.

And when he feels like he sucks, that’s exactly what he’ll say.

“It’s frustrating, but I can’t point a finger at anybody but myself,” Hall said, via the Washington Times, after the Redskins overtime loss to the Cowboys. “The way I’m playing right now, they need to go cut me because I’m definitely not worth what I’m getting. It’s frustrating. Hopefully they see something in me and they bring me back next year, but the way things are going right now, I’m definitely not playing up to par.”

Reporters then asked if Hall felt like he was struggling throughout Sunday’s game.

"I feel like I had a good game up until that point,” said Hall, referring to the pass Dez Bryant caught on a third-and-15 that allowed the Cowboys to continue their game-winning drive. “But when you’re paying a guy the kind of money I’m making, you expect him to make that play. I would cut myself if I was in the front office."

Also, he said this on the Bryant play that went for 26 yards in which Bryant cut to the outside to catch the pass: “I slipped. Can’t slip. I’m the reason we lost the game. It’s frustrating. It’s tough to swallow. Second time in a row to Dallas, so definitely real pissed off at myself.”

For the record, Hall is in the third season of a six-year, $55 million contract. He most likely will NOT be cut this week.

DeAngelo Hall: 'They need to go cut me'

D-Hall is far down the list of players that should be cut from the Skins. Start by cutting the media hound, Chris Cooley, who hasn;t done much since Gibbs 2.0 - Then we need to cut Torrain, guy can't stay on the field. Finally, cut Kyle Shanahan and Hazelet!

DeAngelo Hall: 'They need to go cut me'

DeAngelo Hall is three things, the smartest person he knows, the most ignorant person he knows, and the worst DB he knows.

I suppose the best course of action is trade him for a late round draft pick(s) similar to Haynesworth and McNabb

The trouble there (besides convincing someone else to take on his inflated contract) is that you can't pursue that course of action until the off-season, since the trade deadline has passed for this season.

What a fool.. Go ahead Redskins give him what he is asking for.  Cut him..then restructure his deal for what you think he is worth.  I am sure at that point he will file a grievance with  the union.

So, he wants to except all the blame? I think it's being a good teammate. They are def not going to cut him, but he's remaining loyal to his teammates. A stand up period for a player whom I feel doesn't do it enough. Good for him.

HE IS 100% CORRECT... THE DEADSKINS SHOULD CUT HIM BECAUSE THEY SURE ARE NOT GOING ANYWHERE THIS YEAR OR EVEN NEXT YEAR FOR THAT MATTER... THEY CAN USE THE SAVINGS FROM HIS SALARY TO BUT TOWARDS A QB, SINCE THEY WERE NOT SMART ENOUGH TO DRAFT ONE...

Almost believable. But all you people here saying take less money. I would like to see you do it as well. You grocery baggers, policemen, construction workers, nurses, meterreaders, bank tellers, contractors, gov employees. Why dont you take a pay cut as well. Tell your boss you could do better. None of you will, all people the same. Easy to point the finger and tell him to leave his signing bonus. Will that make you feel better?

that is assuming that anyone would be willing to give that for him.  Washington should be happy to trade him for a McRibb since they are getting more coverage than meangelo gives coverage.Wink

Sound like he just wants to get cut. Maybe they should give him what he wants. He's not worth the money he's making now or ever. He's not a bad corner, just average. The Skins will not doubt cut him during the offseason. Just wait and see.
