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.
