DeAngelo Hall: “I told the ref he’s going to [bleeping] lose his job”

Washington Redskins DeAngelo Hall grabs the face mask of Dallas Cowboys Dez Bryant in their NFL game in Texas Reuters

Late in the fourth quarter of Monday night’s game, Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall gave up a 30-yard completion to Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant, then got called for facemasking on the tackle, giving Dallas 45 yards to set up a game-winning field goal. Hall was angry afterward, but not at himself.

Instead, Hall was angry at both the official who made the call, and the Redskins’ coaching staff for leaving him one-on-one with Bryant.

That was a [bleeping] terrible call,” Hall said, via CSNWashington.com. “I told the ref he’s going to [bleeping] lose his job. I told the ref, ‘That might have been the worst call of the game.’ He’s going to get some demerit points for that call because that wasn’t no facemask.”

Hall also complained that the Redskins called a blitz on the third-and-21 play, leaving him alone with Bryant, and that the blitz didn’t work.

“You ain’t supposed to have to [cover for that long], but [expletive] happens,” Hall said.

When it was pointed out to Hall that the Redskins had blitzed successfully earlier in the game, he didn’t want to hear it.

“Yeah, but sooner or later, somebody is going [bleeping] figure it out,” Hall said. “You don’t have to be a [bleeping] rocket scientist to figure it out after awhile.”

Asked if Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett made the wrong call on the play, Hall said, “You tell me. The result was a first down.”

And the result was the Redskins’ first loss of the season.

    Man this guy is pathetic. Always somebody else’s fault.

    What a whiny little bitch. I hear the My Little Pony League is recruiting, Hall.

  3. rugdaniels says: Sep 27, 2011 6:49 AM

    I thought the reason you bring in a high salary CB was so he can shut down the other teams best receiver and allow you to blitz…
    It was clearly a face mask as well, probably a 5 yd variety a few years ago. The rules been in place for a while now, Hall shouldn’t have a beef here.

  4. nelspetersen says: Sep 27, 2011 6:49 AM

    Hall shouldn’t open his mouth to talk poorly of his own coaching staff in public but I love how he called out the ref if there actually wasn’t a facemask on the play. Refs need to have some level of accountability, seems to me they just want some tv time and/or in some occasions it seems like they might even have put money on the game.

    Shut up Hall!! You just suck at Man Coverage!

    Go Raiders!

    Between Hall and Vick, it sounds like the NFL is full of sore losers.

  8. eaglesfootballfan says: Sep 27, 2011 6:58 AM

    DeAngelo Hall wants to play the blame game when he should be looking right at the mirror at himself. Larry Fitzgerald last week, Dez Bryant this week.

  9. joetoronto says: Sep 27, 2011 6:59 AM

    MeAngelo Hall strikes again, everybody under the bus.

  10. hail74 says: Sep 27, 2011 7:01 AM

    typical meangelo, take it for what it was, a hard fought loss on the road to a tough division rival in a sloppy game for both teams on offense.

  11. ahostiletakeover says: Sep 27, 2011 7:03 AM

    Further reinforcement for the “Meangelo” nickname, what a tool. Own up to your play and don’t try to blame your teammates.

  12. packerfaninsandiego says: Sep 27, 2011 7:04 AM

    where’s the video of the facemask penaty? You put out a story, lets see the evidence to see who should lose their bleeping job.

  13. sakatak says: Sep 27, 2011 7:04 AM

    With that mentality he should quit the game, cornerbacks in the NFL do not think like this slouch.

  14. edmazeing1 says: Sep 27, 2011 7:04 AM

    Why are u madd Hall? al Davis Payed u $8mill for 8 games a few years ago I would still be happy about that!!!

  15. racerx1225 says: Sep 27, 2011 7:05 AM

    Meangelo Small proved in Oakland he cant cover 1 on 1 so yes, it was a bad idea by his coaches to leave his sorry-1 trick pony ass in anything but a zone. He’s a frikkin wimp and cant cover man-to-man to save his life. He’s also a pu$$y a$$ liar as the pic shows plenty of facemask. I hope someone in the locker room backed him into a corner and told him so. Lamer..

  16. damnskins703 says: Sep 27, 2011 7:06 AM

    Hall you played like (beep) it was a terrible call to all out blitz on 3rd and 21 Haslett is an idiot for that but if you can’t cover an injured Dez Bryant then you shouldn’t be talking (beep) the whole week and not perform… You get beat all the time your not that good D Hall

  17. beckzhere says: Sep 27, 2011 7:06 AM

    Awww, MeAngelo is scared to be left alone with Dez. No safety help means I have to get a personal foul just to stop this guy. Haha, you suck Hall!!

  18. mswravens says: Sep 27, 2011 7:06 AM

    Did you not see the picture that is with the story? Please tell me what that is if it’s not a facemask.

  20. themightywhitey says: Sep 27, 2011 7:07 AM

    FACEMASK …..15 yards crybaby ….clear as day

  21. leocrow says: Sep 27, 2011 7:09 AM

    When a player is both as awful as DeAngelo Hall but gets paid like one of the best at his position you’d think he’d at least keep his head down. Absolutely hilarious that he’s a three time pro bowler and goes to show how meaningless that honor is.

  22. ogre2010 says: Sep 27, 2011 7:10 AM

    Meangelo Hall should be call ‘Leon’. He talks like he does everything right and when goes wrong it’s never his fault

  23. diablito0402 says: Sep 27, 2011 7:13 AM

    Yes hall aint an elite cb, he cant cover anyone one on one, so i do blame yhe coaching staff for leaving him alone and not recognizing the have an incompetent cb who needs help all the time.. What a LOOSER!!!

  24. qdog112 says: Sep 27, 2011 7:13 AM

    He did face mask, but he’s right about the blitz call. In my opinion, you make Romo beat coverage down the field, with a 4 man rush.

  25. trbowman says: Sep 27, 2011 7:15 AM

    That’s why Rob cut his a**

  26. MichaelEdits says: Sep 27, 2011 7:16 AM

    DeAngelo [bleeping] Hall strikes again. Yeah, throw your coaches under the bus. Good job. Great teammate. Let the annual unraveling of the Redskins begin.

  27. jdreed68 says: Sep 27, 2011 7:17 AM

    I think someone should Email him a copy of the Photo above….Or explain to him when he wraps his little fingers around the grill of the helmet, Its called a “Facemask”

  28. starfan79 says: Sep 27, 2011 7:21 AM

    Wow…. He basically said he can’t perform at his own job, threw his boss under the bus, and cussed out a league official. Didn’t he threaten Tony Romo before the game? Something about a helmet on the ribs…. And he still will get paid a one week game check that will take me years to amount.

  29. smootysmoot says: Sep 27, 2011 7:22 AM

    Facemask or not, that didn’t lose the game for the Skins. What didn’t help, was Hall not making the play on the lob pass. Hall is a great athlete but very average corner. Bad game all around

  30. carolinajimbo says: Sep 27, 2011 7:23 AM

    Yeah, there was a problem with the blitz call. Hall should have rushed since he can’t cover.

  31. londonfletcher says: Sep 27, 2011 7:24 AM

    Between ESPN’s guys flip flopping every five minutes on weather or not they hate Grossman, and sucking off Romo the entire time, I was glad to see that game end.

    Both teams played like garbage. Regardless of who won, neither team could have walked away with a good feeling about that game.

  32. onthewagonsince90 says: Sep 27, 2011 7:25 AM

    I’d sit him… You can’t throw your coach under the bus.. This complaining about officials is getting out of control.

  33. starderup says: Sep 27, 2011 7:32 AM

    The photo up above looks pretty clear. This guy is second behind Mike Vick as my favorite former 1st round picks to be shown the door out of Atlanta. Good riddance to both of them.

  34. evomike06 says: Sep 27, 2011 7:32 AM

    I agree with the refs calling a face mask, but Haslett is a dumb **** for leaving hall one on one with the other teams best receiver on 3rd and 21 with the game on the line. Even though play calling for the skins on both sides of the ball were hideus at times. And ill give props where they are due.. Dallases D stepped up big and really came to life late in the game.

  35. angrycorgi says: Sep 27, 2011 7:40 AM

    The blitz WAS a terrible call. By now, the DC should be aware of Hall’s incompetence and shouldn’t be trusting him to cover the back end of ANY play by himself. So in that respect, Meangelo is correct.

  36. selldannysell says: Sep 27, 2011 7:44 AM

    This is exactly what you get for running your mouth. Target Romo’s ribs? Maybe you need to be more concerned about covering your man.

  37. bobbinski1229 says: Sep 27, 2011 7:44 AM

    Watched the play live about 20 times… Wasn’t a facemask… There was no “grabbing and turning the player to tackle him” like facemasks are supposed to be… Actually if you watch it (Which I’m sure most of you haven’t) you pretty much slides his hand down his face and tackles him…. Theres a reason ESPN didn’t show the review but one quick time…

    I get it, it’s a crappy loss when you should have been put in a better situation to win… Probably shouldn’t call your defensive coordinator out about it, but it’s what happens after games like that…

  38. tundey says: Sep 27, 2011 7:44 AM

    The problem with Haslett and DHall is that they are not a good match. Haz likes to blitz and leave CBs in man coverage. DHall can’t cover. Carlos Rogers can cover but he can’t catch INTs to save his life so we let him walk to the 49ers. I would bet my mortgage that Rogers would have been all over Dez Bryant on that play. But man coverage isn’t DHall’s strong suit and the sooner Haz realizes that and stops leaving him on an island, the sooner the Redskins stop giving up long completions. It happened on that 73rd TD bomb to Fitzgerald in the Arizona game.

  39. Patriot42 says: Sep 27, 2011 7:48 AM

    Of course it couldn’t be your fault that you can’t cover a receiver all be yourself. Maybe you should be in broadcasting where you can tell us how good you were.

  40. bostonhasrealhockey says: Sep 27, 2011 7:49 AM

    Bleep

  41. bigfranky75 says: Sep 27, 2011 7:50 AM

    He is the exact kind of guy that I DON’T want on my team…. Horrible locker-room presence, selfish, over-rated talent….. he will never be successful. He is garbage as far as I’m concerned.

  42. jwil444 says: Sep 27, 2011 7:54 AM

    first Vick now Hall, looks like Va Tech actually offers a BS in BS!

  43. scudbot says: Sep 27, 2011 7:55 AM

    “… the Redskins’ first loss of the season” with many more to follow, and this latest Hailer outburst won’t be the last either. Shannyskins = Team Chaos.

  44. ocho says: Sep 27, 2011 7:57 AM

    So lets recap…early in the week Hall says “Im gonna ask the coach for some corner blitzes to get some hats on Romo”…Haslett dials up an all out blitz to “get hats on Romo” which results in Hall getting beaten and now Hall’s stance is “we shouldnt have been blitzing”. Unbelievable. Not to excuse Haslett at all b/c that was a truly stupid call, but its crystal clear why Hall has been run out of every city hes played in

  45. dopesimms says: Sep 27, 2011 7:57 AM

    Even though I’m a Cowboys fan…

    So let me get this straight. One of the top 5 players on this defense, and possibly one of the leaders on the team because of experience…

    And he’s bitching because his defensive coordinator gave him the toughest assignment on that 3rd & 21 play?

    Basically Hall is angry that Haslett trusted his top cornerback could lock down an injured receiver and cornerback who needs to gain 21 yards for a first down. And his top cornerback failed and can’t accept it.

  46. primetimetto says: Sep 27, 2011 7:57 AM

    Is there something in the water that makes former Falcons cry?

  47. dopesimms says: Sep 27, 2011 7:58 AM

    receiver and quarterback*

  48. choppinwood says: Sep 27, 2011 8:00 AM

    Looks like DeAngelo Hall never got that chance to target Romo’s tender ribs, but rather Romo and Bryant put the hurt on this whinny lil diva.

    Just shut the heck up Hall, and and try to live up to that big contract that you (undeservedly) received.

  49. truthserum4u says: Sep 27, 2011 8:03 AM

    “…because that wasn’t no facemask.”

    That…wasn’t…no…facemask.

    Hmm, double negative.

    Which actually means…it was!

  50. paulmcmanus6275 says: Sep 27, 2011 8:08 AM

    Somebody needs to tell Deangelo that NFL referees don’t get fired. Sore loser!

  51. quirtevans says: Sep 27, 2011 8:12 AM

    Watching it live, I wasn’t sure it was a facemask. However, it sure looks like a penalty on the replays.

    Hall is just a whiner.

  52. edukator4 says: Sep 27, 2011 8:13 AM

    the reffing was actually horrible in favor of washington all game.
    15 yards for hitting a defenseless receiver in the chest? i give up with this rule.

  53. edukator4 says: Sep 27, 2011 8:14 AM

    regarding my comment above: i bet on washington to cover the spread so i was actually pleased with the bs officiating

  54. bigd88 says: Sep 27, 2011 8:16 AM

    LOL! I bet the ref told him that Hall should lose his [bleeping] job too!
    And besides, if ANYONE should be complaining about the refs, it’s Demarcus Ware for being held on nearly every play, and nearly having his ankle broken by Trent Williams tackling him from behind after Ware beat him silly.
    Or how LaRon Landry was able to destroy Laurent Robinson in the first half when he was totally exposed and not get a defenseless receiver call, but Alan Ball gets flagged for defenseless receiver after the WR catches the ball and lowers his shoulder.
    Please.
    Poetic justice all. Talk the most junk before the game…. Give up the most crucial reception leading to the Cowboys’ GW Field Goal.
    bahahaha

  55. szwhtsup123 says: Sep 27, 2011 8:16 AM

    Hey Meangelo, while you were in the secondary looking for a camera get in front of, you got torched on the biggest play of the game. If that wasn’t enough, in your desperate attempt to recover for being out of position, during a blitz no less, you picked a facemask penalty putting them in game winning field goal range. If you’re so desperate to get into the media, try this novel approach: shut up and make a play!

  56. patpatriotagain says: Sep 27, 2011 8:19 AM

    nfc east = sucky losers

  57. getyourownname says: Sep 27, 2011 8:25 AM

    Technically, it might not have been a face mask because the rule says a facemask is more than a grab, it’s a grab and twist. But it gets called all the time like this, and what’s a DB doing intentionally putting his hand up there anyway, especially in this situation? Both teams can point to questionable calls or non-calls that went against them.

    Hall’s just annoyed he couldn’t put Romo out like he mouthed off about beforehand.

  58. blackqbwhiterb says: Sep 27, 2011 8:25 AM

    I’m the biggest Redskins Homer in the world, and I’M SICK OF HALL’S MOUTH……STFU you idiot.

    Carlos Rogers never would have let Bryant get that much separation. Should have kept him. I said it then, I still say it.

    But hey, if the Redskins can score/control the clock, they should win the game. It was the offense that didn’t hold up their end up things, the way I saw it. Despite big-mouth VaTech talking like a damn fool

  59. blackqbwhiterb says: Sep 27, 2011 8:28 AM

    Amazing how this league pays these whiners/Sallys to play a man’s game.

  61. 1bigtex says: Sep 27, 2011 8:32 AM

    @ bobbinski21

    “Watched the play live about 20 times” Uh, dude, HOW? How do you watch a play “live” 20 times? Here’s a little advice for Mr. Hall, keep your hand away from the facemask and you won’t give refs a chance to throw the flag for facemask.

    And Mr. Hall, when you rum your mouth about how you’re going to get Romo and then back it up with a game where you have no sacks and no passes defensed, you look like a chump. When you follow that up by giving up the key pass completion of the game while trying to throw your coaching staff under the bus, you look like a whiny, bitchy chump.

  62. m2karateman says: Sep 27, 2011 8:35 AM

    DeAngelo Hall never commits a penalty. DeAngelo Hall is never at fault when his assigned man makes a big play. DeAngelo Hall is the premier cover corner in the NFL.

    All this is true…just ask him and he’ll happily tell you.

    NEWSFLASH: Hey DeAngelo, want to bet me your salary that YOU lose your job before that ref does?

  63. blackqbwhiterb says: Sep 27, 2011 8:36 AM

    I hope someone like London Fletcher is leader enough in that locker room to let him know he’s embarrassing himself

  64. zaggs says: Sep 27, 2011 8:37 AM

    Because Hall is the only corner who has had to cover Bryant one on one during a blitz? Sounds like he is covering for screwing the play.

  65. bobbinski1229 says: Sep 27, 2011 8:49 AM

    Ok I’m sorry 1bigtex… I rewinded it on my DVR, and watched the live play 20 times… Didn’t know if folks in Texas could comprehend it… I agree with most folks on here, the Officiating was horrible, but what do you expect from an Ed Hocholi officiating crew.

    And BigD88, trust me Ware isn’t the only guy getting held all the time, I remember quite a few plays when Rak, and Kerrigan were held up pretty bad (One especially when Kerrigan was getting held and still forced the Tony Romo fumble…

    =============================

    You put those words in quotes like you are quoting the rule book or something.

    I don’t know where you got that, but if you think the only time someone is guilty of grabbing the facemask is when they “grab and turn the player to tackle him”, you are sorely mistaken.

    The people who are saying the blitz was a horrible idea (including, obviously, DeAngelo Hall) are the same people who would have been praising it as genius if it had hit home with a sack of Romo. You do what got you there, so they blitzed…simple as that.

    Complete hindsight bias; doesn’t surprise me for someone as ignorant as DeAngelo, though. Blame your linemen and blitzers for not getting to Romo through what was a pathetic excuse for an offensive line for much of the game; don’t blame the defensive coordinator for putting you in a position to win the game and then the players fail to execute.

  69. thebigkahuna23 says: Sep 27, 2011 8:58 AM

    Clearly not a facemask. He touched dez bryant’s visor. And for all you scum cowboys fans, the 5 yard facemask rule was for an incidental facemask, meaning the guy’s facemask accidentally got pulled during play. There was nothing resembling a facemask on that play. Tw cowgirls got lucky and Romo was clearly faking that injury. This is why everybody hates you. You’re never humble and always delusional.

  70. rodgerthat says: Sep 27, 2011 9:00 AM

    Deangel …..a facemask is called when you place your fingers inside that cage looking part of the front of the helmet, grab hold, spin the head of the person who is wearing such helmet at the time and tackle them.
    – signed mr obvious

  71. goawayeverybody says: Sep 27, 2011 9:05 AM

    There was actually no face mask on the play. He barely made contact with the helmet and didn’t pull on it in any way.

    So he’s right about that, at least.

  72. joegibbsisking says: Sep 27, 2011 9:08 AM

    I really hate DeAngelo Hall. We should have kept Carlos ‘Look Ma, No Hands’ Rogers and told Hall to kick rocks.

  75. Derty Ernie says: Sep 27, 2011 9:22 AM

    OK so I’m an idiot but that picture kind of looks like a hand on the face masks and the head turning to me.
    Obviously the boy doesn’t want to get the blaim for losing the game so he’s focusing it on others:poor coaching, poor refering, etc.
    WHen this happens it just means he knows he screwed it up and costs the team a win but doesn’t want the rath to fall on him.
    Do I hear a large fine and benching? You cannot have someone openly question the coaching staff in the media. That doesn’t make a team.

  76. twitter:Chapman_Jamie says: Sep 27, 2011 9:23 AM

    The officials should lose their jobs. That defenseless receiver call was pure crap. Not to mention Ware was tackled and held on every play following the sack/forced fumble.

  77. phillywarmachine says: Sep 27, 2011 9:26 AM

    He’s worse than Mike Vick. Jesus.

  78. Derty Ernie says: Sep 27, 2011 9:27 AM

    PS Hall, since you publicly made it clear you can’t cover the better receivers one on one, your due for a huge pay cut now.
    No more talking about holding out for mo monee. If you need help they will provide it but for a costs.

  79. mike83ri says: Sep 27, 2011 9:35 AM

    The best part of this is the picture next to the story with his hand lost in Bryant’s facemask.

  80. ivegotbigblogs says: Sep 27, 2011 9:35 AM

    Good thing Dez Bryant was at 3/4 health, or he would have really clowned you. And last I checked, your D totally shut down Romo. He had 1 INT and no TD’s and threw for pedestrian yards, and yet you manage to rip on Haslett. Grow a pair.

  81. bmorelikeme says: Sep 27, 2011 9:36 AM

    He should watch the replay so he can see when he grabbed Dez’s facemask…that one was pretty blantant

    The defenseless reciever penalty and the no call on Ware getting tackled on the other hand….

  82. beedubyatoo says: Sep 27, 2011 9:36 AM

    I doubt that the ref will lose his job, but Hall is likely to lose about 20 Large.

  83. bobbinski1229 says: Sep 27, 2011 9:37 AM

    Officiating all around was terrible… Unfortunately in todays NFL in order to slow down a Stud rushing LB he’s held just about every play… It happened to Ware all the time, just like it happened to Kerrigan and Orakpo…

    The defenseless reciever thing was stupid, I thought it was a good clean awesome hit, and it was nice to see moss hang on to the ball as well…

    I think in the rule book it states that a reciever has to get a chance to place both feet on the ground and basically get ready for the hit, and Moss wasn’t able to… Guessing that’s why the flag was thrown, and thanks fellow commentors on clearing up some of the flack my comments recieved…

    It was a hell of a game, and if the game was played in Washington, we probably barely would have squeaked out a victory, glad to see our Defense take the next step….

    Last but not least… That kicker the cowboys signes is ridiculous… REALLY 6 field goals?!?! I absolutely hate that dude lol…

  84. howley1 says: Sep 27, 2011 9:38 AM

    Both teams played like garbage. Regardless of who won, neither team could have walked away with a good feeling about that game.

    ————————-

    I beg to differ. The Cowboys played like a bad high school team and were missing some pretty important players and had others playing injured but they overcame it all and got the W. They should feel great about it, too.

    The Redskins should feel pretty crappy that they tried to get a cheap win by barking out the snap count and lost anyway but I guess that’s what you have to expect from a Shanarat-coached team.

    I agree with him that there is no way that a blitz should have been called on 3rd and 21. Especially in the 4th quarter with the lead.

    Deangelo, the only db in the league more overrated than Cromartie.

  87. kwk69 says: Sep 27, 2011 9:46 AM

    Damn!!! Sounds like Mike Vick. What a big crybaby!!! Talked all that trash and couldn’t back it up… You may be the one loosing your job!!! I don’t blame you though for crying about having to cover Dez Bryant, you couldn’t cover him on your best day!!!

  88. howley1 says: Sep 27, 2011 9:49 AM

    Haslett is a dumb **** for leaving hall one on one with the other teams best receiver on 3rd and 21 with the game on the line.

    ——————

    Yeah, you should never expect a cornerback that’s playing on a $55 million contract to be able to cover the other team’s injured #2 guy one-on-one on 3rd and 20+ with the game on the line.

    Who cares what that burnt up crispy CB says. Deangelo “Toast” Hall

    Come on, dude. Rewinding the tape is not the same as watching it “live”. Hello!!! Anybody home??? Shouldn’t the “reality ploice” have a better grasp of “reality”?

  91. howley1 says: Sep 27, 2011 10:01 AM

    It happened to Ware all the time, just like it happened to Kerrigan and Orakpo…

    ————–

    Maybe, but I never saw two guys grab Orakpo or Kerrigan by both arms and not get called for it like what happened to Ware when Spencer stripped Wrex Grossman to win the game.

  92. mwcarolina says: Sep 27, 2011 10:01 AM

    Hall as a Redskin fan i just have one thing to say to you, SHUT UP!!!!!! it was YOUR fault you got torched for 30 yards, it’s YOUR fault you got flagged, it wasnt much of a fase mask, BUT you grabbed on, I saw it and the whole world did. this loss is half on you!! the other half is on Grossman’s fumble with the game on the line, but you started the bleeding. Josh Wilson should’ve been covering Bryant on that last play and at least he wont be talking after he gets torched.

    So instead of focusing on his point, which was that after watching the play 20 times he doesn’t think it was a face mask, you will (as trolls do) focus on one misplaced word and jump all over him for it.

    I think the rest of us all realized what he meant- that he watched it 20 times, not that he somehow constructed a time machine and went 30 seconds into the past 20 times to see it live.

    I think you should use more question marks and exclamation points in your posts. They, along with your stellar grammar, make you look super intelligent.

    HALL IS THE MOST OVERRATED CB IN THE LEAGUE..HE IS HORRIBLE.

    HOW BOUT THOSE COWBOYS!!!1ST PLACE BABY…SKIN FANS ARE AWFULLY SILENT TODAY…LMAO.

  95. vikesfansteve says: Sep 27, 2011 10:14 AM

    You held on to the face mask. Not for a long time but you did. So shut that hole under your nose.

  96. crazysandude says: Sep 27, 2011 10:16 AM

    The Foreskins need to nut up and cut Hall. His play is certainly not worth listening to him talk trash on his coaches, team, and the NFL. The guy has done nothing since his days in Atlanta.

  97. eaglesw00t says: Sep 27, 2011 10:18 AM

    You get paid to cover a wide receiver. If you need help, you arent a CB, you are a S. And your paycheck isnt that of a S. Shut your damn mouth and play.

    I guess you just showed your coaching staff that you cant be relied upon to play well with the game on the line. And dont care to, either.

  98. bwayno says: Sep 27, 2011 10:27 AM

    I coulda swore he said he wanted more blitzes.. idiot

  99. richm2256 says: Sep 27, 2011 10:27 AM

    Replay shows he clearly grabbed the facemask.

    It also shows that Bryant completely OWNED him on this play. No Dez Bryant fan here, but one can only imagine how stupid Bryant could have made Hall look if he didn’t have one bum wheel.

    Memo to Hall: Shut up and play.

  100. mojosmagic says: Sep 27, 2011 10:57 AM

    Deck The Hall, Shanny.

  101. ppc50 says: Sep 27, 2011 11:14 AM

    Imagine if Austin was playing or if Bryant was more healthy, Hall would get smoked even worse. This guy, who has had some successful games, needs to shut his trap and just go out and play. He reminds me of the loud mouth player on Jerry McGuire.

  102. radrntn says: Sep 27, 2011 11:40 AM

    denagelo hall = over rated.

    now here come the comments about the picks etc……the only reason he gets the picks is because every team throws the ball on his side.

  103. 1bigtex says: Sep 27, 2011 11:57 AM

    @realitypolice

    Two words that weren’t spelled correctly, but I missed the grammatical errors you claim I made.

    The point is the hand was up around the facemask. Keep your hand away from the facemask and it won’t take 20 times on the DVR to determine if it was a penalty. Get your hand up around the facemask and you give the official a reason to reach for the flag.

    Hall got beat for the completion. Then, he compounded the mistake by giving the officials an opening to call the penalty. Finally, he said it was the coach’s fault he got beat even though they were using a strategy that DeAngelo had endorsed in the days leading up to the game. Sounds just like the kind of guy you want on your side when the going gets tough, right? You’ve got some real estate under the bridge as well.

    So, you try to shift the attention away from your pathetic attempt to belittle the man with the “So, um, no DVR or Tivo where you live yet?” comment? Clearly not grasping the concept that rewinding on TIVO or DVR is no longer watching something “LIVE”? Regardless, if the guy watched it 20 times and didn’t see the facemask, perhaps he should watch it 21 times! It’s pretty obvious… much like the fact that you made yourself look like a fool with your last post, and tried to cover it up by diverting the attention away from the fact that you, too, did not understand the definition of “LIVE”! Hahahahaha, what a tool!

  105. jackfnburton says: Sep 27, 2011 1:09 PM

    It’s true that if you bring the house and there’s no safety support, your corners are alone on an island. It’s true that no CB in the world can keep a receiver from getting open forever. It’s true that if you’re gonna run that kind of blitz package, you’d better get to the QB.

    But it’s also true that the only job you’re responsible for on the field is your own. DeAngelo Hall got torched, and tried to grab face to compensate for it.

    Man up kid, and take responsibility for yourself. That’s what the NFL is about.

  106. shaggytoodle says: Sep 27, 2011 1:29 PM

    Wow, no wonder the NFL has changed all these rules as far as hitting goes.

    These players are getting soft, between Steelers not being able to handle legal blocks, or Vick crying about a hit, now

    Hall who was talking all big about knocking out Romo. He can’t even handle a simple facemask call. It did look like he was trying to let it go, but when the WRs head starts twisting its going to get called.

    The NFL sent memos to players about faking injuries, this week it should be about players crying.

  107. kevpft says: Sep 27, 2011 1:57 PM

    @shaggytoodle gets to a point I wanted to make. The problem with the NFL today isn’t that it’s being made “soft” by rules, it’s that we have a bunch of entitled jerks who don’t think they need to be professionals.

    People who truly care about their craft should want to be in the position that Hall was put in. They should want the opportunity to rise to the challenge.

    Instead we get a whining jerk who can’t handle accountability, who wants to be seen as good by never being put in a position to fail.

    The players of the past we so admire weren’t cool because they made big hits or were showy. They’re cool to us because they were serious about their work. Guys like Vick and Hall, for all their talents and the work they’ve put in, still want only the upside. That’s not a winning formula.

  108. jkb0162 says: Sep 27, 2011 2:20 PM

    The play can only be “Live” once. The other 20 times are replays. Also, if you are watching the Deangelo Hall facemask penalty 20 times in a row you might want to get out more.

  109. asublimeday says: Sep 27, 2011 2:57 PM

    What a punk. We are all dumber every time deangelo hall talks.

  110. londonfletcher says: Sep 27, 2011 3:48 PM

    “I beg to differ. The Cowboys played like a bad high school team and were missing some pretty important players and had others playing injured but they overcame it all and got the W. They should feel great about it, too.

    The Redskins should feel pretty crappy that they tried to get a cheap win by barking out the snap count and lost anyway but I guess that’s what you have to expect from a Shanarat-coached team.”

    So players “barking out” a fake snap count doesn’t happen Every week in the NFL? Kinda how Hall got so much crap for saying he was going to go after Romo…like players NEVER go after other injured players? And players neeeever fake injuries or pop up from every missed reception yanking their imaginary penality flag out trying to get a “cheap” call?

    Lemme guess, you think wrestling’s real too, don’t you?

    Sorry, it was a bad game by both teams. Romo has heart, I’ll give him that, and the Skins D carried the offense the whole time. Other than that, it just wasn’t a good game.

  111. bwaredware says: Sep 28, 2011 8:06 AM

    MeAngelo, you are such a Sally. Shut the heck up. You can’t cover and got torched

  112. 2ndaryinsanity says: Sep 30, 2011 7:00 PM

    Maybe Hall got burned because he’s blind…anyone can plainly see he did in fact grab Bryant’s facemask. Did Hall pull so hard/violently that it whipped Bryant’s head around? No, but it was a legit penalty.

    A supposed “shut-down cornerback” should be able to cover a gimpy receiver no matter how many blitz’s are called in a row.

    Too bad Hall can’t play half as well as he makes excuses!
