Another week another Washington Redskins drama filled loss, this time to the Pittsburgh Steelers who were buzzing all-over the field with their 1934 throwback horrendous uniforms. Their uniforms might have been ugly, but their play on the field was anything but.
The Steelers were so good on both ends of the field – they made RGIII (Robert Griffin III) look like a rookie quarterback and exposed the Redskins defense for what they really are; marginal at best, and that’s being kind. The Redskins defensive-line was unable to reach Big Ben throughout the game and the secondary were unable to stop anyone as Big Ben picked them apart play by play and the worse cuprit of them all: you guessed it – DeAngelo Hall.
The Washington Redskins Mike Shanahan Golden Boy Hall
With the game looking seriously out of hand with less than four minutes left, without the ball, and trailing by 15 points, Mr. DeAngelo Hall maybe the Redskins worse player on the secondary and definitely its loudest off the field decided he was done playing. Too scared to take out his frustration with the Pittsburgh Steelers large defensive players, he decided to pick on someone his own size, he walked over to the side ref and gave him a piece of his mind. He eventually had to be restrained by three other officials and he was tossed out of the game.
Don’t get me wrong, the Washington Redskins were in no position to win this game, but the 30 yard penalty DeAngelo Hall’s shenanigans gave the Redskins at this point was unnecessary and didn’t help issues whatsoever. The penalty moved the ball from the Steelers 35-yard line to the Redskins 35-yard line and looking at the Redskins coaching staff and players, you could tell they were defeated. On second thoughts, looking at the score board, you could tell they were defeated.
Through his tumultuous NFL career, Hall has been nothing but trouble on and off the field, mostly known for his verbal blasts and unconscionable behavior than for his on-field play. Just this past week, Hall mouthed off yet again when it was suggested that Eli Manning and Victor Cruz read the skins’ predictable two-minute drill defense when they went up for a 77-yard game-winning touchdown last Sunday, Hall insisted that Manning didn’t have to be a rocket scientist to beat the ‘Skins on that play, and Manning coyly agreed.
DeAngelo Hall is nothing but a revolving door in the Washington Redskins secondary, and am still wondering what exactly Mike Shanahan sees every week in him that gives him the confidence to play this knucklehead week in week out. Hall has been to three NFL Pro Bowls and has 37 career interceptions, but through most of his career, he hasn’t been worth the trouble and this season is no different.
