What do you think will be the outcome of this? Is this going to be Deion Sanders all over again? Hall and Petrino dont have a very good relationship it seems, and Hall can already void the 09 season and might leave as a FA, if we dont end up trading him after this year.

I seriously hope things can mend up, because I think he is going to be the best man to man corner in the league as soon as he matures and gets his head in the game. He is only 23.

He'll be fine...he'll be a lifetime Falcon, we have to have him.

We'll see. They basically have a year to mend the relationship, but frankly I don't think that Hall is mature enough to accept that he is in the wrong. If Hall and Petrino still have issues at the end of this season, I can see McKay starting to shop Hall around. Problem is, no team would be willing to agree a trade without getting him signed longterm, and they're not going to tempt Hall without a massive offer.

Right now, the odds are that Hall leaves as a free agent at the end of the 2008 season. Things might change, but right now that's the likeliest option, bad as it is.

If it comes down to a battle between Petrino and Hall, there's only going to be one winner.

Atlanta Falcons Pro Bowl cornerback DeAngelo Hall asked the franchise to trade him last week, according to two sources. The Falcons informed Hall that his request will not be immediately granted.

"He's going to play out the season and see what happens," said a source close to Hall. "He's not happy, but he'll calm down and see how things are I would expect some teams will be asking about him, but the Falcons said they won't trade him."

Both sources said Hall's antics during a loss to the Carolina Panthers in Week 3 were a product of frustration with losing and from his dissatisfaction with how the team has handled numerous issues. That includes the treatment of quarterback and close friend Michael Vick suspended by the league and asked to repay the Falcons $20 million in signing bonuses in relation to his guilty plea on federal dogfighting charges.

Hall was fined $100,000 after being flagged three times for 67 yards on the game-deciding drive and then arguing with Petrino against the Panthers. In addition, Hall was benched during the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Houston Texasn.

Asked if Hall and coach Bobby Petrino were getting along, one of the sources said, "Let's just say, they'll have some time to figure it out."

Hall is considered one of the top players on the Falcons roster, particularly after the loss of Vick. Hall, who has two years remaining on his contract, was the No. 8 overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft.

During the offseason, Hall said he wanted to wait until free agency before signing a new contract.

Either or, DeAngelo Hall would want to get big cash after this season. Blank won't let Hall just walk though, we will get something or someone that will make up for DeAngelo Hall if he leaves... so don't worry. Hall's good, but his ego always got in the way. I believe he's better than Champ Bailey and all of those other cornerbacks that outperform him week in and week out, but he just gets too confident every game, and I really think that he doesn't get the most out of his talent that way. It's hard to hear this especially after we lost the biggest part of our franchise, and now, it seems like we can be potentially losing what seemed to be the face of our defense for many years to come.

I lost the article, but did anyone else see where he thought they had the falling out because he didn't want to play WR and PR? I think it said he went to one offensive meeting and decided he didn't want to learn an offense along with the new defense and didn't want to return kicks because he didn't want to get hurt.

I would hope that played no factor in their relationship, though.

Shiver
10-01-2007, 03:46 PM
I'd trade DeAngelo Hall for a stud LT/QB or a top draft pick (to acquire one of the aforementioned positions) any day. The odds are that no team would give up that much, so right now we just have to hope that they mend this relationship.

A top 5 corner at his age is virtually priceless...you can't let that go...if you do you have to get a franchise player. Shut down corners are very VERY few and far between, but he shuts his side of the field down...weekly. I don't care if most of the prick 'fans' around here don't like him or his attitude, he's worth the 'hastle'

Shiver
10-01-2007, 04:31 PM
He's demanding to be traded, even after he was the one who screwed up! If I could get a good deal for him, why not? He's clearly a head case and has never played technically consistent at his position. He is very, very good no doubt, but this is a team sport. Continuity and attitude win more than just raw talent.

Is that including him dragging receivers down before they catch the ball? I can't believe somebody up there said he's better then Champ Bailey.

He gets clowned by any decent receiver he goes against. If he would humble up and focus he could be decent in a few years.

You must not watch him when he plays against T.O. or Chad Johnson.

I know your last 4 opponents have had powerhouse receivers like Troy Williamson, Reggie Williams, The QB'less Panthers, and the Andre Johnson'less Texans. So yeah great job.

"Steve Smith - Carolina Panthers - 1 catch 10 yards..."

hahah. I would hope that you know theres more to the story than that.

But probably not.

So yeah, "schooled" is when you finally dont have safety help, Steve Smith runs completely by you and you have to yank him down from behind to avoid a TD. I dont blame him though, he's probably tired of being dragged into the Endzone.

I think he leaves, he knows that the Falcons are now in a rebuilding process, with a loss of Vick, a new coach and his new qb.(soon to be comming). The only bright spots on the team are Hall, and the Lbs, and Abharham who has all 5 of Atls. sacks. Norwood is the only Offensive weapon, with the O-line in shamble because of injuries. Roddy White is finally putting up some numbers.

Don't worry...you guys gleaned from Atlanta's stupidity before with Deion Sanders, you won't get that lucky again.

Maybe so - if Petrino wants him gone, he want's to be gone, and Jerry is sitting there with welcoming arms, I could see a deal being made - especially with CB being one of our biggest weaknesess.

The fact that we have 2 first's to play with makes it even easier.

By the way, not sure how it plays out, but isn't our first (v CLE) for your 2nd (v HOU) equal a late 1st (assuming CLE comes out in the 8-12th range)

I know he worked with him, and I don't want that as a head coach. Hall is one of the, if not the, best player on our defense.

I wouldn't put all the blame on the coaching staff. The team wasn't exactly rosy last year, or the year before that. I mean both in '05 and '06 the team imploded at mid-season. These veterans weren't doing their job and now they are being replaced. There is no reason for the remaining veterans to ***** about it to the media.

Anyway with Hall, yes he is worth a first, and YES I would fall in love if we gave up our first(clevelands pick) for him...im sure ATL would take it, we are drafting a CB more then likely in the first rd, and Hall is about the same age Newman was when we drafted him...

There's only one silver lining. Hall is a competitive little sh**, so I don't expect to see him tank out the next season and a half, which some players might do.

And there's only one thing which will keep Hall happy, and persuade him to stay: winning. If we get a quick turnaround next year, and put together 7 or 8 wins, he might end up staying.

But it's not looking likely, and McKay might have to grab something in a trade if it's going...

Vilma would be great.

If we do have to get rid of Hall, there should be some talented CB's at the top of the 2nd this year. This site has guys like Mike Jenkins, Zach Bowman, Terrell Thomas in that range. It would be a shame to lose Hall, but every player is replaceable.

Houston and Jenkins, for instance, could form a high end partnership in a year or two.

Think on the bright side: if the team trades DeAngelo Hall for a 2nd round pick the team would have the ammo necessary to add a stud LT and QB that the team desperately needs. I think the offense would flourish if the team did something similar to what the Cleveland Browns did last year. Jake Long and Brian Brohm anybody?

BamaFalcon59
10-27-2007, 04:34 PM
The odds of a 2nd round pick, or a 1st even, of being better than DeAngelo Hall aren't very good. Then we just have a massive need at CB.

He is still a top 3 corner at the age of 23. That doesn't come around often. You say he is killing the morale, but he isn't. That one falls on Petrino.

FALCONS PUNISH HALL FOR COMMENTS
Chris Mortensen of ESPN (http://profootballtalk.com/rumormill.htm#) reports that the Falcons have fined cornerback DeAngelo Hall $50,000 for his recent comments criticizing the team for cutting defensive tackle Grady Jackson.
Technically, the team is merely enforcing the full amount of the $100,000 fine imposed on him after a meltdown during a game against the Panthers, during which Hall was fined three times for 67 yards on the same drive.
Apparently, the Falcons told Hall that, if he keeps his mouth shut, the fine will be cut to $50,000. Since Hall hasn't, the $50,000 has been reinstated.

true that... hmmm... my thoughts on this situation... he could be in the whole I'm a team player mold right now... he had 2 int's that he caught with other guys and let them come down with it instead of him because as he said they had better position to get yards after the play... it's not a surprise to see him do this... but I'm just glad he is playing well.

true that... hmmm... my thoughts on this situation... he could be in the whole I'm a team player mold right now... he had 2 int's that he caught with other guys and let them come down with it instead of him because as he said they had better position to get yards after the play... it's not a surprise to see him do this... but I'm just glad he is playing well.


Yeah, it'd be so awesome to keep Hall around. For the most part I really like our D, it's just our offense that needs alot of work.

People have been talking about him trying to steal the ball from Jimmy. It didn't look like that at all to me. It looked like he was trying to make sure Jimmy had it.

I didn't get to see Jimmy's INT...anyone have a place where I can see that? I saw Milloy's and Deangelo's but I'd love to see Jimmy's, since it's his first!

DeAngelo Hall handing his intercepted ball to Arthur Blank is a great sign. That means he wants to play in Atlanta, but it also means he wants to be paid. If all it takes is a new contract and all of this will be water under the bridge I will be ecstatic.


I agree, it's a good sign. That said, it wouldn't surprise me if it just meant that Hall knew he'd get extra media coverage by making a "statement", regardless of what that statement was.

And he was right.

Still, hopefully, if we can win some games, Hall might be persuaded to stay.

Just imagine Milloys. They were about the same. Hall was fighting for that as well. Its nice to see Hall around the ball today, but when your fellow college teammate has his first NFL interception, to end the game, just let him have it. That kinda pissed me off.

Maybe amongst the people who can't get over his sometimes childish behavior. I think most people that just look at how he plays don't underrate him by much, if any.

He is a top 3 Corner

1. Champ
2. Nate
3. Hall
3. Samuels

Champ hasn't impressed me at all this year. I think it's fair to say DeAngelo has out premormed him.

Yes Hall has out preformed him this one year, if he does it again next year, Hall is 1.

Hall hasnt let up a TD this season, if you count Toomer's TD in D-Will's zone.

So happy to know that he's going to be here in ATL long term. Petrino is doing it up big time here in ATL and he knows how to coach a football team, he's got this team following his lead, it's just a matter of time til we start putting up more points.

Hm. So far he has given up 1 TD and a couple of big passes in the past few weeks. Still not to bad, considering his overall season.

People are overrating what Gonzalez did to him. He was obviously funneling him to Chris Crocker, and getting no help.

The man looked damn good last night, I remember one distinct play where he just went up and knocked the ball out of Marques Colston's hands. Only a couple of catches were made his way.

P.S. how cool is Roddy White for wearing that shirt.

Toomer didn't score on Hall. It was a zone, and Demorrio Williams bit down on the play action. The only player to beat Hall in man to man coverage was Joey Galloway.

I might have said it before, but I think DeAngelo Hall deserves Nate Clements money. He isnt going to get lazy after the contract because of his strive to be the best, and he isnt going to slow down anytime soon, seeing that he is only 24. He is pretty much the face of this franchise now, and we need to lock him up.

DeAngelo Hall tore Bobby Petrino apart on Sportscenter. He said that Arkansas isn't a good SEC team and that he'll have to watch Atlanta turn things around and win without him. I think that all of our fears about DeAngelo Hall being unhappy can be put to rest now that Petrino is gone.

His trade value, if he was traded, would be off the charts. A 24 year old 2-time probowl CB who is playing amazing. He is as old as a college player and is a NFL probowler.

With Petrino out, Hall wants in

By D. ORLANDO LEDBETTER
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Published on: 12/13/07

Flowery Branch — Cornerback DeAngelo Hall said former Falcons coach Bobby Petrino's departure has strengthened his desire to remain with the team. Hall's contract runs through 2008 but he would like to reach an extension before the start of next season. So far, he said there have been no talks.

Hall would not have been eager to stay with the Falcons had Petrino stayed, in part because he said Petrino didn't want him back.

"I want to be here," Hall said. "Probably the lead guy who didn't want me here is gone so my chances to be here are looking pretty good.

"Losing isn't fun for anybody so there needs to be some steps taken in the offseason to help us win. That will ultimately determine if I sign a long-term deal here.

"[Team owner] Arthur Blank knows that, [president and general manager] Rich McKay knows that. I feel like we're going to get the right people here and I feel like I'm going to be here."


Hall doesn't expect a fine

Hall said he doesn't expect to be fined for bringing a poster of imprisoned quarterback Michael Vick on to the field before Monday night's home game against New Orleans, or for taping it on the back of the bleachers.

Hall said that league rules ban props during games, but not before kickoff.

Wide receiver Roddy White will likely find out Friday if he'll be fined for flashing his "Free Mike Vick" T-shirt after his touchdown catch.

In light of the new statements he has said I guess I will bump this thread.

I am going to be a very sad man if Hall leaves guys. I am gonna need your morale support if he does get traded. I hope you guys are there for me when I need you most.

I highly doubt he leaves.
