DeAngelo Hall: Eli Manning no rocket scientist on winning touchdown

Trying to smack-talk a division rival to whom you just lost is probably the ultimate example of fighting a battle after losing a war. But that didn't stop DeAngelo Hall.

Trying to smack-talk a division rival to whom you just lost is probably the ultimate example of fighting a battle after losing a war. But that didn't stop DeAngelo Hall from trying on Wednesday when he offered his own breakdown of the New York Giants' game-winning touchdown in Sunday's 27-23 win over Washington.

"I don't feel like he made that play; I feel like we gave them that play," Hall said. "That was nothing he did - aw man, he saw this and saw that - we just had one guy set his feet, one guy not do this and, man, I could have threw that ball and he could have scored.
"It wasn't something he was just a rocket scientist and he just figured out. We just played that as bad as possible."

We would pay good money to see Hall try and hit an receiver running in a straight line away from him with a 40-yard pass the way Manning hit Cruz Sunday. And yet, we digress.
