Pro Bowler DeAngelo Hall Leaps For An Interception ... And Fails

The Redskins have one player that will be in the Pro Bowl, and he's the guy who got beat badly in the above .gif (via the indispensable @bubbaprog). Yes, that's DeAngelo Hall leaping for the football when he had no chance of catching it as Mario Manningham sped by him for a 92-yard touchdown. That kind of sums up the Redskins' season, does it not?

As you would expect, Hall was asked about the play and about being named to represent the Redskins in the Pro Bowl. To his credit, he was a stand-up guy about it. Via Rich Campbell:

DHall took full responsibility for the 92-yd TD: "I got beat this season more than I've ever gotten beat in my career, combined."

Hall was asked if he deserves to go to Hawaii: "Probably not. That's a popularity contest." #Redskins

Hall's taking responsibility here, but this is merely what you get with the guy. Sometimes, he gets the interception and looks great. Other times, he doesn't and looks silly like this. It's all part of the DeAngelo Hall package, and I've reluctantly come to accept it. For what it's worth, it's apparently popular enough to get him to Hawaii.
