Default DeAngelo Hall

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.

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 think its imperative we keep him. we have a 23 year old locking down many of the top recievers today. he has an incredible future and if we lose him it just sets our 'rebuilding' farther.

DeAngelo Hall is a moron. Seriously, you screw up, you let everyone on the team down and YOU demand to be traded? That's enough to alienate me.

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.

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'

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.

I just can't justify giving up a 23 year old shutdown corner. It's virtually impossible.

Do you guys seriously think DeAngelo Hall is good?

He might just be the most overated player in the league.

Which would explain why the most catches he has given up this year is 2 right?

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.

'He gets clowned by any decent receiver he goes against.'

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

Yeah, he got SCHOOLED...darn...he made a smart play by giving up less yards by taking the PI penalty...beat 1 time all season...he's AWFUL guys, why don't we just cut him?
