Re: Hall agrees to one year deal with skins

I like D Hall, I bet he works out good for us! He will take some time, but I like the depth!

But as nervous as we all have been to see Torrence on the field in pressure situations, won't you be a little more comfortable with Hall in that same position? All the talk about how much the guy has been picked on this year overlooks one small thing, he was playing opposite the best shut down corner in football right now in Asomugha.

I think the most telling statement came from Arthur Blank when he said that Hall just needed to grow up. Well, getting cut from Oakland and having the opportunity to play for the team he grew up wanting to play for may be the spark he needed. He's 24, he's been on top of the world (2 Pro Bowls) and through adversity. He's probably our 2nd most athletic corner right now, with Springs physicality making him numero uno.

ProFootballTalk.com - BLANK SAYS HALL NEEDS TO GROW UP
It'd be career suicide for D. Hall if he doesn't play well here. He has the chance to be a 3rd/4th string CB with the opportunity to play as much as a 2nd/3rd string CB (due to injuries). Whether he stays with the Redskins or goes somewhere else, he needs to prove himself on the field. I think Hall has been humbled by this situation, going from being worth picks and big $$ to being waived and having to play for almost the vet min.

Re: Hall agrees to one year deal with skins

I suppose I am showing my rookie stripes with this question.
How will the continuity factor be impacted by Hall replacing Torrence? I mean setting aside any locker room factor, how hard will it be say for Landry, who is used to Torrence, and knows about how he would react in a given situation, now to play around Hall's strengths and weaknesses. I do remember Trotter and Arrington often ending up in the same spot on the field (right or wrong).
How long will it take for the secondary to adjust to Hall's reactions?

Re: Hall agrees to one year deal with skins

I've seen an interview with D. Hall and one with Carlos. I liked what I saw. I've been hard on Hall but that's because I've seen him from highschool to the pros and in-between in college. I wouild like nothing better than to see him play up to his potential. Right now, there is probably no better place to get it together than with the Redskins. Our coaches and our PLAYERS I believe, are well-equipped to handle anyone that would become a distraction or put himself above team. He is fast on top of fast and 24 years old. I hope he has matured and plays well. What an AWESOME defensive backfield we will have if he does.

Interesting. According to this, he's wearing #32. Maybe he's wearing the reverse of his Oakland # (a la Randy Moss with 18 and 81) to literally turn things around. Or maybe it's a typo.

Refreshed And Ready, Redskins Get Back to Work

I saw that about #32 as well. But see him in a pic wearing #23 here:
The Official Blog of The Washington Redskins

Thank goodness it is not 21.

Doughty gave up 37 to Alexander. It appears he then gave up 23 to Hall. He's a team player when it comes to jersey numbers!

I wonder how much Ocho Cinco will have to pay if he gets traded to a team who already has an 85!

Re: Hall agrees to one year deal with skins

I was wondering why daughty kept running the ball...

I read the article and hall was saying basically he didn't like the raiders system because they play a lot of man coverage.

We play a lot of man coverage as well. This concerns me. We don't have a quick enough pass rush for a strong zone defense. QBs have the time they need to find the holes.

Good observation. One that is not made nearly enough.

Which article?, because the one that started one of these 2 threads stated that he talked to our DB's coach and he liked the amount of press coverage that we play.
