DeAngelo Hall berates official, gets tossed from loss to Steelers

DeAngelo Hall had a meltdown at the end of Sunday's 27-12 loss to the Steelers, getting ejected after berating an official, sans helmet.

The Washington Redskins (3-5) suffered a frustrating loss to the host Pittsburgh Steelers (4-3) on Sunday, dropping multiple passes on offense and offering little resistance on defense, particularly in the defensive backfield (a season-long problem).

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed 24 of 33 passes for 222 yards and three touchdowns, and it seems the ongoing frustration of the game eventually got to veteran Washington defensive back DeAngelo Hall, who had an epic meltdown as the game concluded.

Displaying what can only be described as extremely poor judgement, Hall got in the face of an official, and to apparently make sure that official heard what was on his mind, Hall ripped off his helmet to deliver some not-so-nice words.

Hall was quickly flagged and ejected from the contest. This latest outburst comes just one week after Hall engaged in a war of words with the New York Giants after Eli Manning burned the Skins secondary late in a 27-23 Week 7 win.

Veteran leadership, this is not.
