Thank you, DeAngelo Hall, for telling a story (and, through the magic of copy and paste) writing a story for me. The main character in Hall’s story is Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, whom Hall picked off four times in a game last year.
Hall begins the story – which he told to 106.7 The Fan – with little inhibition. Here it is:
“Jay is definitely a clown. I played against the kid one other time, and it was when I first went to Oakland, first game of the season we played on a Monday night. And Shanahan was actually coaching. He’s played against Al Davis so long, he knows what we’re going to be in — man under, it ain’t no help, just go out and play football no matter what they come out in. You can tell Shanahan was scheming us up — max protection, double/triple move. And Eddie Royal had caught a couple balls against me that game.
And I tell you what, I don’t know if Jay (in last season’s Bears-Redskins game) was like ‘I’m going to keep going at him, I don’t care what’s going on.’ And the first half, I didn’t have an interception, a pass breakup or nothing, and then to come out in the second half against those guys and get four interceptions. Man, I’ve never had more than two in a game, so to go out and get four in a half, I was like ‘man, this is unreal! I’m on the sideline like ‘wow, this is pretty amazing!’”
