Earlier today, it was announced that Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall had been selected as the NFC Defensive Player of the Week.
That’s a major turnaround for a guy that told the media after the Cowboys game that if there’s finger-pointing to be made, he would want it at him. Today in the locker room, the media was pointing fingers again–but in a good way.
Unfortunately for them, Hall wasn’t ready to take the good with the bad yet. When asked how he felt about his seven passes defensed on Sunday, he had a few regrets
“Yeah, a lot of dropped picks, basically,” he said with a smirk. “I definitely dropped a couple gifts. But, y’know, we got the win, and that’s kinda all that matters.”
“But it was a nice award, a nice honor.”
Hall rebounded physically and emotionally from any disappointments he weather during and after the Cowboys game. This may not have been the statement game that he was looking for, but his efforts on defense were part of a larger team effort that won the game.
And that’s kinda all that matters.
Catch the rest of his understated thoughts, and his preview of Rex Ryan and the Jets:
