I understand what you're saying FRPLG. The spotlight is on him, and because of his less than stellar play, his standing up like a man is his way of justifying it. I have a feeling we're going to be talking more about him in the not so distant future.

Re: Did D. Hall Just Blast Zorn and the Inept Offense?

Just leave D Hall alone a question was asked to him and he answered it in the best way possible. He knows that he is not playing well at this time but he will play better once the whole defense jell. After watching game of the Rams again I noticed that our d-line is not exploded off the ball until the final possession of the Rams. I think Blache is actually killing our pass rush by not allowing them to shoot gaps. Also, Zorn is a terrible playcaller who thinks he is a genius. From the looks of it our offense will continue to look like it did in 2004 with Gibbs.

Re: Did D. Hall Just Blast Zorn and the Inept Offense?

D. Hall was just on ESPN's First Take

- We made too many mistakes. Defensively, couldn't get off the field on 3rd down

- Won't take anything away from the Rams, they played hard

- I definitely felt the fans frustration. Any time you get a win in this league you take it. I can feel their frustration though. We should have put the game out of reach

- Still think we've got some of the best fans in the world. We need to give them something to cheer about

- One mistake could have cost us the game. When I slipped and fell, that one mistake could have cost us the game

- Henson is just a young guy, doesn't know what he's talking about (re: the fans). Chalk it up to immaturity

- Liked the decision to go for it on 4th and 1 at the 2. Not getting in the end zone is inexcusable (I think that's what he said)

- Lions are a dangerous team. We're a 1-1 team going to play an 0-2 team. We can't worry about last year. Last year doesn't matter

I think that Zorn is both a terrible playcaller and a genius. He just overthinks things too much.

"When you're playing on a team that you're not allowed to make as many mistakes because the score is going to be held a little lower, you've got to concentrate and you got to focus that much more," cornerback DeAngelo Hall said. "We can't give up a big play like I did [Sunday]. We can't slip, we can't fall, we can't give up a touchdown because we know that one touchdown could be the one that beats us.

"We definitely got to keep guys out of the end zone. We got to keep them held to field goals. If that's the kind of team and the kind of game plan we're going to be playing in, we as defenders, we have to step it up and we kind of know that."
I don't know what is it in here that you are referring to as making excuses for his play and complaining.

At least Hall has the balls to own it. Kudos to you D'angelo.

Re: Did D. Hall Just Blast Zorn and the Inept Offense?

If he did, it is warranted.

Zorn better watch it because based on comments from Hall, Cooley, Portis & Moss, I see a fractured locker room a couple of bad losses away.

The players cannot even enjoy a victory anymore.

Re: Did D. Hall Just Blast Zorn and the Inept Offense?

Well Hall is the weakest link on the defense and a below average NFL corner so maybe he should leave the "leadership" to guys with true NFL bona fides like London Fletcher. The play against Robinson that he mentions was embarrassing and he looked like he was on skates. But it is not like that was the first, or will be the last, time Hall gets smoked this season.

Agreed. He's saying the type of things an underperforming guy with a huge contract should be saying. And he's right. We need to cut out the mistakes, step it up, and put games "out of reach." I have no issue with these comments.

No problem with any of Hall's comments. He's saying the right things

Thanks for the rundown SS.

I agree with the Slingin' one. DHall is saying the right things.

Re: Did D. Hall Just Blast Zorn and the Inept Offense?

I don't like it when a defensive player says anything that can be remotely construed as negative about the offense and vice versa. It's just not a good idea to start down that path.

Having said that, I think that he showed the right attitude. I just hope that he and the other players will be careful not to inadvertently cause any locker room problems.

I agree; he tip-toed around the subject well enough to get to his main point, which was accepting responsibility for a mistake.

I like D. Hall. Sure he gets paid a lot of money, money that his play on the field might not support, but he makes up for occasional lapses in coverage with his big play ability; he makes interceptions where most corners in the league do not.

Re: Did D. Hall Just Blast Zorn and the Inept Offense?

Hall didn't say anything wrong here.

Like SC said, he's probably not the best messenger, but I don't think that this points to a divide in any way. The offense appears just as pissed that they didn't get in the end zone as well.
