Former NFL pass rusher Alex Hall having huge season in CFL

By Sunday’s end, some NFL fans figure to be lamenting their favorite club’s lack of pass rush.

It’s here that we mention something that came across our radar screen late Sunday morning, courtesy of the Canadian Football League.

As the CFL’s public relations staff noted today, Winnipeg Blue Bombers defensive end Alex Hall currently leads the league with 11 sacks. And here’s what’s really interesting: should he continue at this rate and play all 18 games, Hall would notch 22 sacks in regular-season play — one short of Cameron Wake’s 23 sacks in 2008, the CFL pointed out.

Wake, of course, has gone on to NFL stardom with the Miami Dolphins.

Hall’s name may be familiar to some NFL fans. He’s had stints with the Browns, Eagles, Giants and Cardinals. He recorded three sacks as a rookie with Cleveland in 2008.

We certainly don’t want to outright compare Hall to Wake. The latter is a special NFL pass rusher. However, if Hall is getting to the quarterback at this rate in the CFL, it stands to reason he could at least get another look from the NFL at some point.

    He’d probably be great in college right now too. And a legend in High School.

    The Blue Bombers suck. They’re 1-8 and couldn’t cover a pimple.

    Alex Hall makes a sack again!

    Sorry but the Bombers do not suck……they are probably the most underrated team in North American football.

    Alex Hall will win the MVP and Best Defensive Player. Miami picked up his rights. Wake and Hall will dominate the NFL with the Dolphins in 2014.

    Don’t listen to this clown Swaggerville. What the hell is North American Football? I love the CFL but it’s not in the same conversation 99/100 times. The Bombers do suck(2-12lol) but that doesn’t mean Hall sucks. Once again, this clown is clearly lying about Miami since I can’t find anything about it online. Hall will be invited perhaps but he’s just not good enough to stick in the NFL. The latest on Hall is that Calgary and Saskatchewan might acquire him before the trade deadline for the playoff push.
