Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall told the media that he feels like the Giants didn’t do anything special to win last week’s game. He said they really gave Victor Cruz his 77 yard touchdown catch.
“I feel we gave him that play,” said Hall.
Hall responded to quarterback Eli Manning saying the Giants knew what the Redskins would do based on how they covered them at the end of the first half.
“We tried to vary it as much as possible,” said Hall, via Tom Rock of Newsday. For him to say that in the first half he picked up on it and to not make a play until the last play of the game? I don’t know how well he picked up on it. Ultimately he did because he made the play to beat us, but I don’t feel like he made that play. I feel we gave him that play. We just had one guy set his feet and one guy not do this. I could have thrown that ball and he would have scored. It wasn’t something where he was a rocket scientist and he figured something out. We just played that as bad as possible.”
Hall certainly knows how to talk. The problem is that he’s liability in coverage and often gets smoked by the receivers he covers. He needs to face the fact that Cruz blew right by both Josh Wilson and Madieu Williams.
