Re: DeAngelo Hall: "We'll dominate our division"

D. Hall wants to be a star in some capacity. I wish he did the little things on the field as much as he does interviews on espn & comcast. I still think the guy could be an elite corner, but I don't get the impression he works on all the details of the game.

Realistically, the only team we might be better than right now is the g-men. They fell apart last year & kind of lost their identity. Whereas we fell apart & reverted to a familiar losing identity. The changes in the org. are good for a few wins but I think it's a bit overly optimistic to say we'll "dominate" the div. and in fairness to Allen & Shanny, they need more than a year to right the ship. Sadly, the cowpokes are hands down the div. favorite at this point.

Re: DeAngelo Hall: "We'll dominate our division"

Here's his entire quote:

"It's based on the talent we feel like we've got," he said. "It's based on the improvements I feel like we've made. It's based on the scheme. The scheme alone is gonna give us four or five more wins. The games we lost by two, three points, we'll win those games, easy.

"We'll dominate our division, off of bringing Donovan McNabb in here, a guy who's dominated the division in the past. So that's just an educated guess. That's an educated guess, and I stand behind. I'll stand behind that. I'll fight and claw to try to make that happen."

Re: DeAngelo Hall: "We'll dominate our division"

I will admit that it is hard for me to be a McNabb fan after rooting against him for so many years. But he is not an average QB like Jason Campbell is and always will be. McNabb will make our young WRs better and we will score more points, which will make it easier on our Defense, which to me, would make them more aggressive and have more turnovers.

Let's face it everyone, the reason the Skins have not been winning more games in the past, is because they have averaged less than 20 points per game in the last several years.

They have to score more, and McNabb will help them do that. We finnally have a legit QB.

We will see how much the line is going to be revamped. Remember Donovan had the best trio of Wrs in the division, if not the entire league last year. He doesn't have those big guns anymore. That being said Kyle's offense is way more open than Zorn's and more akin to Norv's. If Norv had a franchise QB and better safeties, he could have kicked some ass.
Can't really see where you get that. Dead weight players and coaches were released and Vinny C. was jettisoned. That alone should account for 2 wins. Plus, who was the unquestioned LEADER of this team over the past few seasons? The "face" of the franchise? Yeah, I give up too. McNabb brings in much needed veteran leadership and the team is already responding. Don't know how it will translate onto the field but it certainly is a welcome change.

just say.. " i like our new schemes and w/ the addition of mcnabb hopefully that will help us get more wins inside the division"....something like that. when you're 4-12 and you tackle like a girl no need to say silly ass stuff. i'm glad he's confident but there's a difference between confidence and ignorance.

Halls comment to me was refreshing. It shows that there is finally something there that is exciting the players. "We are going to dominate the division" is not something you say in the NFC East especially if your a Redskin of the last decade (or more) unless there is a renewed spirit and level of dedication starting with the organization and reaching the team as a whole.

As far as Hall always being a idiot. I don't see that at all. And his positive comment does not reflect that of an idiot. I can see if he said the Skins will try but in the end we will be the same old broken team. But he's excited about the new scheme as he should be.

As far as his tackling, well he does need improvement here but so does the team as a whole.

As long as Hall disrupts the backfield and comes up with INT's as he does and will. I'll be happy with that. I would hope that he is not in the position to have to tackle a break away RB as often as he has been.

He has the right attitude and is a playmaker. I'm glad he's a Redskin and hope his enthusiasm is contagious.
I will agree with you there but I'm tired of him running his mouth. He was Mr. Goody Goody when he got here, he got paid and then started bitching when the losses piled up. To me Hall is a front runner, when things are going good he's all smiles but when things are down he's pointing fingers when he's a huge part of the problem. Just do it on the field, I don't need any stupid ass quotes in April.

you can be optimistic and confident without sounding like a cocky, antagonistic, uber-douche
thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: DeAngelo Hall: "We'll dominate our division"

Talk is for insecure losers. Let your play on the field do your talking for you.
Nothing good comes from talking trash. Confidence in your ability is on the inside and should remain there.

For those pessimists that say we are basically returning the same team...HELL NO!
The team is already vastly improved talent wise, not to mention we are starting to fill the role positions and depth which was one of our biggest needs...next to OL.
Where the biggest change will be seen and felt is in the coaching staff and our scheme. We had one of the worst coaching staffs and FO in the NFL. Vinny and Snyder as our FO was retarded. That has changed drastically.

Pretty harmless when put into context... but not as interesting or rage inducing as the headline "We'll dominate our division".

our backfield wouldnt be the same without a cornerback who ran his mouth better than he covered wide receivers.

If you read my history on this site I tend to make an argument for players that seem to get blasted by obsessed fans such as you. Personally, I don't understand how fans get such hatred for players on the team they are suppose to root for. Granted, that all of us will get a splitting headache when we see these players do something stupid on or off the field. But folks like you seem to love to hate players like Hall. I don't know, I just tend to be logical and think a little bit before blurting out criticism.
