DeAngelo Hall has widely been considered a tad bit overpaid. He was one of those Daniel Snyder reaches that never really was worth the time and money.
Hall tied an NFL record by intercepting four passes off Chicago QB Jay Cutler this afternoon during Washington's 17-14 win over the Bears at Soldier Field. Hall returned one of those picks 92-yards for a TD and also recorded a team-high seven solo tackles.
"It's not necessarily big for me, man, but it's big for this defense," said Hall, who has been slowed recently by a back problem. "You go out and look at the stats, man, we don't look too good on paper. But you watch us play live, man, we come out there and we're flying around. We're trying to hit guys. . . . I guarantee everybody that comes against our defense is definitely thinking twice about catching any balls, running any balls, running any routes, because we're going to try to bring it to them."
Meanwhile Cutler, a known turnover-machine, had little praise for Hall....
"I've played against (Hall) before,'' Cutler said. "There's no reason to shy away from him. That's hard for me to say throwing four picks to the guy but I still think if we had to play him tomorrow I'd go after him every time.''
