The defining play of the Washington Redskins' 18-16 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football was wide receiver Dez Bryant outleaping DeAngelo Hall for a 30-yard completion on third and 21 to keep a Cowboys drive alive inside of three minutes. The Cowboys eventually converted the go-ahead field goal on the play, which featured Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett calling an all-out blitz. After the game, Hall was not happy about the play and sounded off on Haslett's strategy.
Via Grant Paulsen of 106.7 The Fan:
#Redskins using their 0 safety press look so much: "You don't have to be a f---ing rocket scientist to figure it out after a while."
DeAngelo Hall on how often the
#Redskins' showed their no safety help look: "Sooner or later somebody's going to f---ing figure it out."
This is not the first time Hall has criticized Haslett's defensive strategy. After a loss to the Houston Texans last season, Hall expressed his displeasure at not being called on to cover Andre Johnson on the game-tying touchdown.
