Why is DeAngelo Hall always praised so highly?
 
Seriously it always seems like this guy is getting clowned whenever I see him play. And tonight is another fine example. Eddie Royal is killing him.

no pass rush helps but he was always over hyped

CT Bronco Fan 09-08-2008 10:49 PM

or maybe, Eddie Royal is just amazing.

I've been riding the Broncos all night but calm the **** down with the homerism.

Gatz 09-08-2008 10:55 PM

On a team with little media coverage + Homers hyping him up =

Eddie Royal is the best player in the NFL hands down.

I'm not saying Eddie Royal isn't good. I'm saying that Hall hasn't been that impressive in his career...and in my opinion doesn't deserve the recognition he gets.

Ocho Cinco said he sucked and that he should be called DeAngelo Fall because of how bad he is.

Ocho Cinco is right 85% of the time.

You can take whatever I say with a grain of salt considering my username and the team I like, but whatever.

He let up 1 TD last year with the Falcons, and that was on a Joey Galloway slant and go for 44 yards and a TD. He did not let up any other TD and was only burnt on a couple plays (for about 30-40 yards).

But every year before that, his biggest issue has been his consistency. One week he would come in and dominate. Another week he would just make stupid gambles and stupid penalties.

I guess one reason I am happy about trading him away is that at least I know what our CBs will be like.

pretty sure it was a sluggo route but yeah he did burn him

SuperKevin 09-08-2008 11:45 PM

it's because he runs REALLY fast and is cocky. Chad Ocho Cinco has proved that everyone loves a showboat

Menardo75 09-08-2008 11:58 PM

He is no nasty Nate that is for sure

CC.SD 09-08-2008 11:59 PM

I didn't see the whole game, but I know if you get roasted in the season opener, things are looking bad. The Oakland pass rush though...yech.

But his yards per play was terrible. Or rather, below average ranking in the mid 7's...which was the second best of his career apparently. Granted, the pass rush wasn't that great...but there is a reason he is frequently targeted.

But Ocho Cinco is good. And he killed it on the Riverdance.

He must be good dawg. He was drafted high, plus I know his name.

BlindSite 09-09-2008 12:16 AM

Eddie Royal played well but Cutler was a big part of that.

Eh whatever. I am done defending him. Do not feel like arguing for him right now.

Because you can't possibly defend him right now.

You must have missed the game against the Giants, where Amani Toomer caught an easy one on him in the 1st quarter.

Boldin's 2nd TD in week 16 was on Hall as well.

I remember Anthony Gonzalez beating him badly on a deep ball that would have easily been a TD had he not been headed toward the sideline. That set up an easy TD. In my mind, Hall is accountable for that.

Not only did he play with 2 very exploitable corners in Chris Houston and Lewis Sanders, but he didn't even match up with the majority of top WR's the Falcons faced last year. Missing out on Wayne, Holt, Colston, Andre Johnson (hurt), and Burress.

Now across from Aso, Hall won't be able to hide on that comfy left side in Atlanta anymore. He'll be among the most frequently targeted corners in the league this year.

CC.SD 09-09-2008 12:54 AM

Didn't Hall come out and say he would never play for a losing team again?

Uh...
