The visitors are a part of DeAngelo Hall’s pregame routine.
Every Sunday before kickoff, an opposing coach will find Hall to pay respect to the three-time Pro Bowler.
“There hasn’t been a coach that we’ve played that hasn’t … told me how good of a season I’m having, just to keep it up and keep playing hard,” Hall said in an interview last Friday.
“Coaches in this league, players in this league and hopefully the fans can kind of see what I bring to the table. “
When Hall picked off Tony Romo in the second half of a 24-23 loss to Dallas last Sunday, he tallied his eighth season with at least four interceptions.
With only a few days left to vote for the Pro Bowl, Hall strengthened his case to make the annual all-star game for the fourth time.
“It would mean a lot, especially the kind of season I felt like I’ve had,” Hall said.
“It’s been kind of good at times. It’s been tough at times. I haven’t got a lot of balls probably in the last half of the season, so it’s been definitely tough knowing that was a goal of mine. “
Hall held Dez Bryant to less than 80 yards receiving for the second time this season last Sunday, and Bryant scored on a broken play in the end zone. Earlier in the year, Hall limited the dynamic young receiver to 36 yards and no touchdowns.
He’s also drawn assignments on DeSean Jackson, Calvin Johnson, Brandon Marshall, Antonio Gates and Roddy White.
“The list of guys that I’ve had the opportunity to go against, I think that kind of speaks for itself,” Hall said. “Just the cast of characters I’ve had to face, the success I’ve had and the lack of success they’ve had.”
Perhaps most impressive is his scoring ability. Hall has three defensive touchdowns on the season. He’s one of six players tied for the league lead with two interceptions for touchdowns. He was the 2011 Pro Bowl MVP.
This fumble return scored Washington’s first six points of 2013.
Hall picked off Peyton Manning twice.
And he robbed Matthew Stafford for six.
