DeAngelo Hall gets pounded in court of public opinion (duh)

10:10 am November 9, 2009, by Jeff Schultz

If DeAngelo Hall is serious about complaining to the NFL about that big meanie, Falcons coach Mike Smith, there’s something he may want t0 know: Character witnesses will be in short supply.

Hall’s reputation as a talented but underachieving selfish malcontent precedes him. And you would be hard-pressed to find anybody around the NFL to say a bad word about Smith. Here’s a sampling of follow-up comments, with links, from Sunday’s sideline incident during the Falcons-Washington game:

MIKE SILVER, YAHOO! SPORTS:

“Is [Hall] experiencing problems with the imaginary friend who lives in his helmet? That’s my theory after he capped a ridiculous week by starting a bunch of drama on the Falcons’ sidelines in his team’s 31-17 defeat at the Georgia Dome on Sunday, then had the gall to whine that Atlanta coach Mike Smith had “put his hands on me in a harmful way.” Cue the violins. I’ve repeatedly watched the video of the incident, which began after Redskins safety LaRon Landry put a late hit on Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan on the Atlanta sideline, and I’m having a really hard time believing that Hall’s planned complaint to the NFL about Smith will be met by anything but laughter. … The opposing sideline is off-limits; even Landry had the good sense to leave after his cheap shot on Ryan. Hall made a point of coming over and getting involved, and then he acted surprised that former teammates and others wanted him gone.”

DON BANKS, SPORTS ILLUSTRATED:

“And speaking of brainless, how transparent was it of Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall to go over and mix it up on the Atlanta sideline after Washington safety LaRon Landry got flagged for a late out of bounds hit on Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan? … Hall, the ex-Falcon who left Atlanta for Oakland in 2008 with bruised feelings intact, wound up pretty much tussling with Falcons head coach Mike Smith, who’s never afraid to mix it up. And here I thought it was Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff that Hall had a grudge against, given his pointed comments of last week.”

CHRIS NEEDHAM: NBCWASHINGTON.COM

“How low was yesterday’s loss? We found out that even the Falcons’ coach is tougher than the Redskins. … DeAngelo Hall, the Skins cornerback, is afraid of the Falcons’ 50-year-old silver-haired head coach, Mike Smith. Smith, Hall alleges, roughed him up on the sideline during a skirmish and said a bad word to him. A bad word!”

BARRY SVRLUGA, WASHINGTON POST

“[Hall] has a penchant for drama, and though there were more costly plays in the Redskins’ 31-17 loss to the Falcons, none better typified Washington’s utter loss of self-control than Hall’s mix-up with the Atlanta coaching staff and players.”

So go for it DeAngelo. This should be rich.

lol for a second there i thought i was the only one feeling the same as Don banks.

+1 bump

I think it's hilarious that Hall says he was coming to help out his teamate, Landry. In actuality, Landry was already halfway across the field and had to turn around to come help HIM out because he was standing in the middle of our sideline talking smack! :rolleyes:

Smith will be dealt with accordingly, you can't put your hands on players like that.

He crossed the line and should be embarrassed.

I understand that you aren't familiar with the rules of football. Apparently reading is a weak point for you too. So I went ahead and streamlined the previous article down to the most important info for you here. Of course, maybe I'm being too bold in assuming you can read at all.

I do believe that Smith will receive a sternly worded letter of warning from the NFL. He gave a pretty good forearm shove to D-lo and coaches should be doing more to break it up rather than get involved.....most of the time. I love that Smith stands up for his players though and not just by talking the talk, he's walking the walk as well.

I think it says a lot about the respect that D-lo commands in the Deadskins locker room, it took what, 3 minutes before the first Skins teammate came over to help him out. Sounds like he has about as much respect there as he does anywhere in the Falcons organization.

And it's good to see that D-lo still hasn't grown up. He's unable to control his emotions on the field, he'll cost his team at least as many games (probably many more) as he will win them games. He's a ball hawk with no cover skills and the EMOTIONAL IQ of a 3 year old.
