DeAngelo Hall named NFC defensive player of the week

Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall has been named, not surprisingly, the NFC defensive player of the week following his record-tying four-interception performance in Sunday's win over Chicago.

Hall, who leads the NFL with five interceptions on the year, returned the second of his four picks 92 yards for the touchdown that put the Redskins ahead for good. He tied a record held by 18 others, most recently Denver's Deltha O'Neal in 2001.

On Tuesday, Hall's jersey was sent to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.

"It's definitely a huge honor," Hall said Wednesday. "Definitely a whirlwind. I was thinking about taking my jersey and framing it. They come to me and say the Hall of Fame wants it. It definitely keeps getting better."

Redskins safety LaRon Landry was the NFC's defensive player of the week following an Oct. 10 victory over Green Bay.

We got rid of a guy and then added a guy very much like the one we got rid of.

And the one we added is 'elite'.

He'd better play like it.

PortisPocketsStr8,

I agree, there were many games last year where the outcome was clear before the end of the game so Campbell would drive us down the field and score a meaningless touchdown that would put us within 3-7 points with no time left.

This year the opposite is true. Our offense kind of goes dormant in the second half and doesn't get a lot of yards/TDs so you know whatever we got for the game is hard earned and legitimate against fresh, aggressive defense and not prevent defense.

DeAngelo Hall's jersey headed to HOF

ASHBURN, Va. -- After tying an NFL record with four interceptions in a game, DeAngelo Hall is getting his jersey picked off -- and shipped to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Scott Van Pelt

Redskins CB DeAngelo Hall discusses his four interceptions against the Bears, Jay Cutler's comments about him, Washington's ability to win close games, Giants-Cowboys and more.

The Washington Redskins cornerback announced Tuesday on Twitter that the No. 23 he wore in Sunday's 17-14 win over the Chicago Bears is on the way to Canton, Ohio.

A spokesman for the Hall of Fame confirmed that it had asked for the jersey.

Hall is the 19th player to intercept four passes in a game and the first to do it since Deltha O'Neal with the Denver Broncos in 2001.

Hall tweeted that he is "definitely humbled and honored" by the Hall of Fame's request.

It's not an honor that's likely to sit well with Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, who threw all four picks. Hall said he had an idea Cutler would throw the ball his way, because Cutler -- while playing for the Denver Broncos in 2008 -- completed some passes against Hall, who was playing for the Oakland Raiders.

That's why Cutler said after Sunday's game that if he had to do it all over again, he would go after Hall "every time, if we could."

Arseneo Hall is totally the type of guy to kick back for a week or two and live off his performance last week where he picked off one of the most interception-prone QB's in the league this year.

I am hoping "Megatron" doesn't 'transform' Hall back to feast/famine mode. He will undoubtedly be covering Calvin. Here's hoping he doesn't play like Hobbs.

Moe, I was as big a JC apologist as anyone up here. And his stats being amazingly similar to McNabb's last year was one of my go-to arguments. But now that I've had a chance to see McNabb play up close on a consistent basis, I see that QB play can't totally be quantified by his numbers.

JC usually put up pretty good stats. But he didn't do the little things to help you win. Pocket awareness, leadership, the ability to make a play when there isn't one...none of that is in the statline you posted. You put JC in the same conditions as what McNabb has had this year, we're 0-7, 1-6 at best.

So while I agree that McNabb needs to step up his game, I'm patient enough to know that I probably won't see that until after the bye week. But just like I didn't want us to get rid of JC without getting something better first, you don't just wash your hands of a guy like McNabb until you know full well you can do better.

And as of now (and probably into next year), I doubt we can.

Even though he was a CowPuke, I've never really had a problem with Aikman as a broadcaster. Seemed like he went out of his way to not be obnoxious to Skins fans and must be one of CP26's biggest admirers. Sunday however, I found it strange that, late in the game, he "couldn't believe that Cutler hadn't taken a shot at Hall"...even as Hall had THREE interceptions. Of course, another "shot" was imminent...resulting in pick #4. Troy didn't tell us what that did for his credulity levels.

That makes sense actually.

BTW, apparently CR doesn't drop what look to be easy INT's.

Those are 'deflections'.

Similar to the logic of Deion Sanders when asked about missed tackles. Per Deion, "Those aren't missed tackles, those are business decisions."

Anyone pining for the days of Soup or hoping for sexy Rexy should just rewatch every down.

I like soup and hopes he succeeds in Oakland but we'd be 2-5 with him - here is where I disagree with Brownwood but barely. McNabb is the only reason we aren't typing ad naseum for more draft picks and wondering which o-linemen would look best in burgandy and gold. (Williams has been great but so Samuels was rarely beaten for sacks; the other four have been matadors.)

For every sack he has taken he has made equally as many plays when we we're sure he was sacked -- the 40 yard pass to Moss down the sideline for one and just about every completion against the Colts. I'd be watching and thinking ooh he's getting sacked, no he's throwing it away, to sh!t he just completed that pass.

McNabb hasn't been elite statistically but he has more often then not been the reason for the team's success.

This is the kind of statement that keeps these debates alive. McNabb has done a great job avoiding sacks, but to credit hm for the team's success? Come on, anyone can see it's the defense closing out wins, not the offense.

The defense gave the offense the ball, what, 5 times at the end of the last game. How does McNabb get credit for that?

P_F, anyone taking tackling advice from Primetime needs to get their heads checked...for every shutdown CB with matador tackling skills, there's a Champ Bailey, Nnamdi Asomugha, Darrelle Revis, Darrell Green, etc. that will do some the dirty work too.

I'm still stunned we're having this discussion about McNabb going into Week 8. If you don't see the value in a QB that can help you win without putting up fantasy football numbers, then allow me to direct your attention to Big Ben in Pittsburgh...or fire up some old Elway footage...

Hall is the third Skins player to get 4 INTs in one game: the others were Sammy Baugh in 1943 and Dan Sandifer in 1948.

Alan,

How did the defense do against St. Louis and Texas? Sure DeAngelo won the game against the Bears not McNabb but how would've that changed with either Campbell or Grossman? It still is a win. With either of those guys the wins against Philadelphia, Dallas and Green Bay are likely losses. McNabb was the difference on one or two plays that gave the outcome to the 'skins.

NFC East Division Titles
McNabb = 4
Campbell = 0

NFC Championship Games
Mcnabb = 5

SuperBowls
McNabb = 1
Jason Campbell = 0

Teams that would actually want the QB
McNabb = plenty
Campbell = Raiders (when he's not getting benched)


McNabb is not just supposed to be "elite"; he is elite, which is why I think we can chill out 7 games into a 4-3 season, be patient, and just stop this Jason Campbell nonsense.

I concur with your thoughts on Troy, but Sunday when he was calling for DeAngelo to get flagged for excessive celebration for going down on two knees wiped away all those thoughts.

I'm now convinced he needs Joe Buck to not so subtly set forth the pro cowboy propaganda so that he can sit back and calmly remain 'objective.'

So you honestly don't see the value in a guy who turns what looks like a certain sack into a downfield completion? You don't see the value in a QB that doesn't go for the checkdown, but puts the ball deep downfield? You don't see where turning a negative play into a positive play might contribute to a win?

Seriously...if you need to be spoonfed chapter and verse every minute detail of the notion that the importance of certain plays can't be added to a stat sheet, then this discussion is waaay over your head. By your logic, offensive lineman are useless since there's no stat to support the notion that you have to have 'em to be successful...

No doubt the defense is doing some heavy lifting. But this ain't the 2000 Ravens...that D ain't good enough to win games by itself (Bears game notwithstanding).

This is the simplest way I know how to break this down...prior to the Colts game, we couldn't run. The O-line was mediocre at best. Yet we had a winning record and were in the games we lost at the end. You tell me what the difference was...

bangkokben,
You're assuming Campbell and Grossman are the only alternatives. For what we're getting from McNabb right now, we could get similar from a younger, athletic style QB (Michael Vick lite). Campbell and Grossman are not very good at avoiding sacks, McNabb is clearly superior in this. I beleive we could have found a cheaper, younger (more upside), mobile and somewhat inaccurate QB as a stopgap, if that's what this is... the type that often gets converted to a WR or DB in the NFL.

Hall put away the Dallas game and the Bears game. How can you blame the defense alone for St Louis? Shouldn't the offense be able to score more than 16 points against the Rams?

Hall had a great game, for sure. But if you follow his career, and key on him during games, he's really not a good corner. Cutler had a horrible game, and handed Hall 3 easy picks. One was a great play by Hall. All the teams go after Hall, so what does that tell you? Cutler is right, and if he has a normal game, Hall gets burned every time. That's where Peyton went.....Hall is horrible week in week out. When it's third and long they'll go at him every time. Key on him and watch....he's a joke and NFL qb's know it.
