DeAngelo Hall's W-L record isn't so great
This is a big week for DeAngelo Hall. He's going to be far more involved in the Redskins' punt-return game. He's debuting a line of t-shirts. He's blogged about how the Redskins are like a wounded animal. And he has promised to cry if the Skins win in his return to Atlanta.
Which got me wondering, during the 44 minutes of awesomeness otherwise known as the Redskins Insider and Donut Podcast, about Hall's recent won-loss record. And, after the taping was finished, it got me wondering about his career-long won-loss record. I'm not in any way suggesting that Hall is responsible for any wins or any losses, but dang if this isn't a depressing story.
2004: The Falcons start his rookie season 5-1, although Hall records DNPs in the first six games. He plays in each of the final 10 games, and the Falcons close with a 6-4 stretch.
2005-2007: The Falcons go 19-29 in Hall's final three years in Atlanta.
2008: With Hall off to Oakland, the Falcons surge to an 11-5 mark. The Raiders, meantime, begin the season 2-6, and then cut Hall loose. He joins the 6-3 Redskins. The Skins scuffle to a 2-5 finish, while the awful Raiders actually close with a 3-5 stretch after Hall's departure.
This means that without Hall, the Skins and Raiders of '08 combined to go 9-8, and with him, they were 4-11. The Falcons, meantime, improved from 4-12 (with Hall in '07) to 11-5 (without him in '08).
2009: Hall and the Redskins get off to a 2-5 start. Over his last three seasons, his record after seven games has been 1-6, 2-5 and 2-5.
After his rookie season in Atlanta, Hall's suffered through four-and-a-half years at 25-45. That's got to be pretty depressing after a while.
