Jim Haslett On DeAngelo Hall's Comments: He Was 'Joking More Than Anything'

I still don't see what the big deal is about DeAngelo Hall's comments that he is "targeting" Tony Romo's injured ribs if the Dallas Cowboys quarterback plays on Monday. Like I wrote on Wednesday, it's a poorly-kept secret that NFL players target injured body parts. So really, Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett's defense of Hall's words was totally unnecessary.

Nevertheless, here it is, via Ryan O'Halloran of Comcast SportsNet:

"You think about it – he’s not allowed to hit him in the head and you can’t hit him below the knees so there’s really only one place he can hit him," Haslett said. "Realistically, [the ribs] are the only place you can hit a quarterback now."

Yeah, pretty much. Haslett also said that Hall was "joking more than anything," which is about as believable as me telling you that unicorns exist. Hall was being completely honest, and I, for one, don't see what the fuss is all about.
