SCFalcon58 Posted December 31, 2007 Share Posted December 31, 2007 I've been critical of D. Hall this season but I don't want to see him gone. CBs with his ability are hard to find. That being said I don't think we should pay him 'shut down' corner money because he hasn't earned that yet. Part of the reason he's high on the passes defended stat is because he gets thrown at a lot. I don't think other teams are scared of him therefore he has opportunities to make plays...shutdown corners don't get thrown at very often. I'd be interested to see numbers for the number of attempts against him this year vs. last year. I don't think you can judge corners by passes defended and INTs alone. INTs aren't everything. That analysis from footballoutsiders.com someone posted last week on 2007 DB grades was good stuff I thought. He does seem to be MUCH better in man coverage than zone for some reason as someone else stated.I've been happy to see him return punts lately. We don't have many playmakers at this point in getting the ball to him makes sense.I don't hold the big mouth against him this year...this has been a hard season to deal with for players and fans.Go Falcons.
