After the Redskins 30-27 overtime loss to the Houston Texans, Hall still believed he and his defense had their way with Matt Schaub and Andre Johnson. The problem is, well, they didn’t.
For the numbers: Matt Schaub threw for 497 yards and three touchdowns. It was the 12th best passing performance in NFL history. Andre Johnson caught 12 passes for 158 yards and a touchdown. He played with a sprained ankle and helped the Texans overcome a 17-point deficit.
Now, with that in mind, check out these perplexing quotes from Hall.
“This is my first time going against him in the league,” Hall told the media on Monday. “I gave him a lot of props during the game. During the game, he didn’t scare me. He didn’t do anything that looked spectacular. He didn’t do anything to make me feel like he was the best.”
“Maybe the numbers indicate he is, but I didn’t feel that way when I lined up against him. He caught a lot of balls in zone and was just kind of running wide open in zones, not really man-to-man.”
“We were hitting Schaub. We had him rattled. I felt like we were dominating those guys, hitting Schaub whenever we wanted to. He was falling down, you know, without anybody even around him, like Peyton Manning does a lot.”
I know cornerbacks need a tough shell and a short memory, but this is a little too short. Wonder what he’ll say when they actually come close to shutting down an offense.
