Hall Says the Best Is Yet to Be

Jason Reid reports:

Whenever an athlete, especially one who has had problems in his past, conducts himself as a model citizen and excels during a contract year, it prompts speculation that he only behaved to get paid.

Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall addressed this perception, as it pertains to him, during a news conference Tuesday at Redskins Park to announce his re-signing for six years and $55 million.

Hall at times irritated teammates in Atlanta, which drafted him, with his brash comments and actions that some thought to be selfish. The perception that Hall was a locker room problem were reinforced, fairly or not, when Oakland released him after only half a season in 2008, just months after trading for him and giving him a seven-year, $70-million contract (the deal was voided after Hall cleared waivers and signed with the Redskins in November for the remainder of the season).

"I keep going back to [his Oakland experience] because it was just such not the right fit for me," Hall said. "Just coming from a place like that, and being able to come here, you just kind of ... you feel back alive. You feel on top of the world. That's how I feel."

Hall earned positive reviews from Redskins players and coaches for his performance on the field (he had two interceptions in seven games) and his commitment to his teammates and the team concept. But, again, some wondered if that was all a show. Just wait and see, Hall said.

"I can't try to go in and persuade anybody. I'm not a salesman. I'm not going to sell myself on anybody," he said. "All I can do is say, 'Look at me in this scheme and see how I do.' I played well in this scheme the last couple of weeks of the season because I felt comfortable.

"It fit my style of play. I'm not a 6-2 corner that can sit here, pressure you with one arm and play with his back to the sideline. I'm a corner that likes to see the ball, likes to make plays on the ball, love to get the ball in my hands and this scheme definitely have me an opportunity."

It sure would be nice if the blog that touts itself as the "Redskins Insider" would actually ever have some inside information that holds up, instead of several repetitive posts about the release of a guy most agreed would get cut anyway, and the regurgitation of quotes from a press conference we all saw yesterday. But without this I suppose there would be nothing, and therefore no arena to dispense negativity...

BUCS SIGN NUGENT
Posted by Mike Florio on March 4, 2009, 12:40 p.m.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have announced the acquisition of kicker Mike Nugent, a free agent formerly with the Jets.

It’s a one-year deal, probably for the fifth-year veteran minimum.

Nugent, a second-round draft pick in 2005, missed 15 games in 2008 due to an intentionally vague Mangini ”leg” injury. Nugent kicked two extra points and missed one field goal in the regular-season opener.

The decision to sign with the Bucs, given the presence of Matt Bryant, is confusing. Unless, of course, someone suggested to Nugent that maybe he’ll have a chance to knock out Bryant and his $1.1 million base salary.

I have this vague recollection that Hall got beat up by one or more of his Atlanta teammates in the locker room. [I think it was after the game when T.O. admitted on television to spitting in Hall's face.] But I agree with you, 4th, what happens in Atlanta stays in Atlanta.

And even when they called him a cancer, it referred to the fact that he was born in mid-July and cancer was his sign. If he'd been born in November, they would have called him a scorpio. (fwf, cancers are tired of the bad association and have been trying to change "cancer" to "moon child" although that has problems of its own)

REPORT: THE THREE MISSING BOATERS TOOK OFF THEIR LIFE VESTS
Posted by Mike Florio on March 4, 2009, 1:28 p.m. EST
Rarely if ever do I struggle to start writing one of these items. But I’ve spent the past several minutes at a complete loss for words.

Apparently, Nick Schuyler has informed authorities that each of the other three men who were on the 21-foot fishing boat that capsized off the Gulf Coast of Florida voluntarily removed their life jackets.

Within two to four hours after the boat flipped, one of the two NFL players, Marquis Cooper of the Raiders and Corey Smith of the Lions, removed his life jacket and allowed himself to drift out to sea.

Then, a few hours later, the other NFL player did the same.

Finally, on Monday morning, Bleakley thought he saw a light in the distance. So he removed his life jacket and swam to it in an effort to get help.

“I think he was delusional to think he could swim someplace,” Bob Bleakley said.

This news makes the tragedy even more horrific. If they only had stayed together on the hull of the boat, they all would have been saved.

But the psychological burdens of such circumstances are surely very heavy, and reality like becomes twisted and distorted very quickly.

So, again, pray for the families of the men who were lost. But also pray for Nick Schuyler, who will carry the guilt that goes along with being the only survivor of the tragedy, and that goes along with the fact he wasn’t able to convince three of his friends to refuse to surrender.

The 49ers offered free agent DL Demetric Evans a two-year deal, but he didn't sign and has left San Francisco.

Evans has returned to the D.C. area, possibly increasing the chances that he'll re-sign with Washington. The Redskins definitely could use him.

Let's be honest: they don't call him "Me-angelo" Hall for nothing. He went to Virginia Tech. They aren't known for producing model citizens. Two NFL teams have dumped him in spite of his obvious talent. Maybe he's changed, but the Skins don't have a good track record in this area.

Last season they signed a guy who spent the offseason ballroom dancing and then were SHOCKED when he didn't want to workout this offseason. And they'll be SHOCKED again when Hall reverts to his true self.

Given the amount of grief I get for Priest Holmes to the point where he is even listed as "the jack knife" of the Redskins ... I could at least get some small kernel of credit of spotting him over in Atlanta when everyone was worried about the dearth of guards in Washington, especially given Randy Thomas' injury.

"....Sam Bradford is a system quarterback..."


Funny...that's what they say about Colt Brennan--another June Jones clone.

Joe Montana, Steve Young: system guys.

Why do folks think J Campbell succeed under Zorn?: because he played in the West Coast Offense system at Auburn and Zorn is a WCO guru.

A system has nothing to do with accuracy, quick decision-making, arm strength, and fitting the ball into tight spaces against elite college cover corners like Janoris Jenkins--a guy who's soon to be a high pick.

Watch the National Championship game again and ask why the Sooners didn't choose to ride Bradford's arm.

But this is next year's jibba-jabba and Moe is warming up way in advance.

Too many things have to go right for Jason Campbell to succed this year: o-line improves, young wideouts improve, Zorn let him play shot gun, Portis not getting upset the team wants to throw more than run.

If the team makes the playoffs, Campbell gets an extension.

If the team doesn't make the playoff, Campbell gets the Patrick Ramsey treatment.

If Campbell gets hurt (again) and Collins plays well, the franchise is torn between and old guy and an unsatisfying guy.

Me?: I draft a new guy.

I agree this specific post is not overboard on the negativity that most of the previous posts have shown, but why the several repetitive posts on Jason Taylor getting cut? It's obvious, so the two Jasons can get in as many cheap shots as possible on the FO. Also, for every negative media report you can find with regards to the Redskins signings so far, I can find a positive one, if that even means anything. And I still don't see why anyone would value the opinion of some of these "reporters" over the opinion of their next door neighbor or anyone else. Most of these guys were losers growing up that probably never played a sport in their life, and they write the things they do to drum up controversy and get as much publicity for themselves as possible. Why? To put more coin in their pocket, the very thing they unfairly criticize owners like Jerah and DS for trying to do. That is why I call it tabloid journalism; they are making more of an effort to "sell copy" or generate "page hits" (depending on the media used) than they make in being fair or accurate. To make it worse, they have the nerve to act so self-righteous every chance they get, whether it be smug remarks made on WaPo Live or cheap shots they take in writing columns. Can anyone really argue that JLC wasn't probably as giddy as a schoolgirl in the pressbox for every one of our losses last season? I think people need to remember that objectivity means neutrality, not negativity. I'm not looking for a cheerleader, but just not being positive doesn't mean you're being objective. Get rid of the Jasons and give me a guy like Barry Svrluga covering the team.

Sally Jenkins? Liked her piece on Michael Phelps, but everything else she does is crap to me. Feinstein would fit right in with the Jasons, he is the president of his own fan club. I value what he says on golf (except when it comes to Tiger, he hates the guy), most baseball, and some college basketball topics, but football is obviously not an area he has great knowledge in, even if he is the color analyst for the radio Navy football broadcasts. I can live with Boswell or Kornheiser; each has been somewhat negative at times with regards to the team, but I think they are clearly more fair, and it's obvious that the purpose of their lives is not to try to take cheap shots at the FO, so I don't see how you can equate either of them with the schlubs who post this blog.

Hall is going to be solid player for us. He went to football hell in Oakland, and now he is grateful to be on a real football team. What I would like to see is Deangelo Hall returning punts. He probably is the fastest guy on the team now, and he was spectacular in college on returns. Randal El has been worthless as a punt returner, so give Hall a chance.
