08:06 AM ET 09.27 | DeAngelo Hall didn't get his shot at Tony Romo, but he did get a good one on his defensive coordinator. [Hall] voiced his displeasure with a decision by [Jim Haslett] to blitz eight players and leave no insurance coverage downfield on third-and-21 with 2:20 left in the game and Washington up 16-15. With Dallas quarterback Tony Romo lined up in shotgun, Washington sent the house, and Romo froze the defenders with a brief pump fake, scrambled out of the pocket and then fired the ball 30 yards downfield to Dez Bryant, who had beaten Hall. ... [Hall said the Redskins] went to the all-out blitz one time too many. "Sooner or later, somebody's going to figure it out," Hall said, disgusted. "You don't have to be a ... rocket scientist to figure it out after a while."

Good thing, MeAngelo, because that's one thing you certainly aren't.

His ability and resume do not validate his mouth

being a loud-mouth doesn't make him wrong...

If MeAngelo were half the player he thinks he was he might've made a play one-on-one, even if it was Bryant. As it is, Cowboy receivers just kept beating Hall like a dusty rug. Wilson was the only 'Skins CB who made a play all night.

Gawd awful football game last night. Both teams suck badly.That being said, Haslett was wrong. Thinking DeAngelo could cover anybody one on one was foolish.

Remind you of a certain CB who was left to cover a certain very tall and athletic receiver all alone in the end zone with a superbowl championship on the line while a certain HOF to be HC decided to blitz from the same side?

a half second here, a half second there ... it was also the play that almost wasn't ... and not quite the same thing ...

Hall is a punk, all mouth, no hit.

September 27, 2011  09:53 AM ET

Got torched by Dez! LMAO! I thought he is the self proclaimed best corner in the league! What made it worst is he cursed at the ref and said the ref should lose his job! Oh yeah, questioned his coach too!?!?! What a crybaby! Hell, Deadskins can't even take advantage of the situation. Cowboys were handing them the game all night long. Why not give credit where credit is due??? Give Romo some props for playing hurt, chasing after loose balls and babysitting his depleted WR's for not lining up right!

Hey MeAngelo....the jerk store is running out of jerks...they could use you

September 27, 2011  10:17 AM ET

I would certainly not equate Hall with being a rocket scientist.

"whipped them good"? What game were you watching? The only thing that snooze-fest whipped good was the snore meter.
