DeAngelo Hall Is Excited To Face His Old Team, Remains An Excellent Quote

Posted by Matt Terl on November 2, 2009 – 5:13 pm


I’ve mentioned before how entertaining DeAngelo Hall can be while addressing the media, and you had to figure that he’d be fired up to face his old team in their home stadium, but his chatter today surpassed even my high expectations.

(I should note that Hall didn’t address the reports that he would be the primary punt returner this Sunday, because those reports hadn’t been published yet. Also, possibly, because follow-up reports have indicated that it’ll still be a three-way split at punt returner. Either way, don’t expect to hear anything about that during this interview.)

Here are some excerpts, for those who don’t feel like watching it above. (And thanks to the Redskins.com TV people for the video.) Read more »

Eddie Williams Has Been Learning From Mike Sellers

Posted by Matt Terl on November 2, 2009 – 3:26 pm

As I mentioned on Twitter earlier today, the Redskins signed rookie FB Eddie Williams off the practice squad to fill the roster spot vacated by Chris Samuels. In actual point of fact, this may or may not mean much: Williams, playing fullback, is likely competing with Quinton Ganther for extremely limited scraps of time behind Mike Sellers.

But that doesn’t diminish his excitement.

“It’s nice,” Williams said after practice today. “It’s real nice, a blessing and everything. I just have a lot of work to do, and I hope it’s just beginning. I feel like I’ve got a lot of potential, and I’ve just gotta work hard.”

In fact, he’s already been working hard: working to overcome a knee injury that dropped him in the 2009 draft, and working to move to fullback from his college position of tight end.

Monday, November 2: Peter King Makes Me Feel Guilty

Posted by Matt Terl on November 2, 2009 – 8:52 am

So the bye weekend yielded its usual funny joke: “Hey, the Redskins didn’t lose this weekend!”

I heard this line, with slight variations, all weekend. From people I know and people I don’t. From family members. From waiters. This morning, from staff at my kid’s daycare.

But here’s the thing: the Redskins kind of did manage to lose this weekend.

On Saturday, the team made the expected move and put left tackle Chris Samuels on injured reserve. Because this was expected, because of the rumored retirement and the initial reports weeks ago that his career might be done, there wasn’t much fanfare around the move.

This was a mistake; there should’ve been. It’s not just a loss on the field — although it’s certainly a HUGE loss there, as Mister Irrelevant has mentioned — but a loss in the locker room, and … just a loss in general. And it was — of all people — SI.com’s Peter King who put this the best, in this morning’s Monday Morning Quarterback.

“Two very good tackles — Chris Samuels and Walter Jones — are nearing the end, and that shouldn’t be something just in small type this weekend,” he started, making me feel hugely guilty.
