Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall doesn’t hesitate to be completely honest. He’ll blast the officials if he feels he’s been wronged -- even when he most certainly hasn’t. He’ll predict that he’ll try to hit an opposing injured quarterback where it’ll hurt the most, even though he sometimes disappears in games like that.
And when he feels like he sucks, that’s exactly what he’ll say.
“It’s frustrating, but I can’t point a finger at anybody but myself,” Hall said, via the Washington Times, after the Redskins overtime loss to the Cowboys. “The way I’m playing right now, they need to go cut me because I’m definitely not worth what I’m getting. It’s frustrating. Hopefully they see something in me and they bring me back next year, but the way things are going right now, I’m definitely not playing up to par.”
Reporters then asked if Hall felt like he was struggling throughout Sunday’s game.
"I feel like I had a good game up until that point,” said Hall, referring to the pass Dez Bryant caught on a third-and-15 that allowed the Cowboys to continue their game-winning drive. “But when you’re paying a guy the kind of money I’m making, you expect him to make that play. I would cut myself if I was in the front office."
Also, he said this on the Bryant play that went for 26 yards in which Bryant cut to the outside to catch the pass: “I slipped. Can’t slip. I’m the reason we lost the game. It’s frustrating. It’s tough to swallow. Second time in a row to Dallas, so definitely real pissed off at myself.”
For the record, Hall is in the third season of a six-year, $55 million contract. He most likely will NOT be cut this week.
