DeAngelo Hall on Keenan Robinson rip: “I didn’t know he was even on a team”

Giants linebacker Keenan Robinson said when he was in Washington, any bad stretch of games would be met with the locker room devolving into finger-pointing.

The guys he left behind there sent some pointed remarks back at him.

Via Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post, Washington safety DeAngelo Hall had the sharpest rebuke.

“Keenan said that? That’s interesting,” Hall said. “Where’s he playing at? I didn’t know he was even on a team. You can print that.”

Robinson said he turned down an extension after the 2014 season so he could leave, and he signed with the Giants in free agency to try to join a team with a more positive/winning culture.

“I’m pretty sure he would say that,” tackle Trent Williams said. “I’m pretty sure he doesn’t really have any good feelings toward the organization. Obviously, he’s not here anymore. Comments like that are human nature.”

They’re 0-2 at the moment which makes them an easy target, but coach Jay Gruden said he thought his team showed resilience last year when a slow start ended with a playoff berth.

“He has his own point of view and own observations,” Gruden said. “We faced adversity last year, and we handled it quite well. We were 2-4 at one time . . . and came back to win nine games and our division.

“I didn’t see any finger-pointing to that magnitude that he’s talking about. Nobody likes to lose, so there’s going to be some grumbling. I can’t make 63 guys and 20 coaches happy every day. We’re not all going to be smiling and singing [‘Kumbaya’].

“We’re not happy, but we’re going to keep working and keep grinding. We have a good group of guys that aren’t blaming each other, but they’re willing to get better.”

Maybe it’s changed since Robinson left.

    Hall pretty much proves Robinson’s point with that snipe job. Way to take the high road, DeAngelo.

    Even if what Robison is saying is 100% true he was very classless on this one. You don’t kick your former teammates and the team that drafted you while they are down, the team that paid you for the two full years that you’re in the Injury reserve, made you a starter for two years and then benched you because you couldnt stay healthy or tackle for that matter. Very classless.

    Not likely. They can all be in denial about it but that team is a mess.

    We wouldn’t know Hall was even in the league except all the highlights of him getting burned over the top acting like he’s still a corner but forgets he’s a safety now.
