BIGTIME. He shut down Hakeem Nicks both games. Played well when he was matched up with Dez Bryant. A few times against bryant he needed help over the top when he was in zone and looked horrible on the count of no safety play. I dunno i could go on forever i dont think he deserved the cut. But like every skins fan regardless of opinion im moving on.

Based on his $8M cap number, I'm gonna say he deserved to get cut.

Hall knows the scheme and plays it well when he's serious out there. Whatever he's lost in talent is off-set by experience and knowledge. I highly, highly doubt there's a CB in draft/FA who would overall outperform Hall next season as a Redskin.
At this point, pretty much every team in the nfl is forced to play predominantly man coverage with its corners simply because offensive coaches and receivers are too good at breaking down zone. So we ask of our corners what every other team does.

The game was a bit different two years ago. I think defenses were more schematically diverse. Now with all the changes on the offensive side, the Tampa 2 and other base zone variations are dying out and defenses are saving creativity for third down situations.
