I've been a critic of his thuggish behavior, so I won't run away from this thread. When he has an INT or saving tackle, we all seem to forget the past infractions. Yes, he has no support in the secondary and gets exposed on an island, but that happens to almost every CB in this league. What continues to bother me is the opposite of a "team-first" attitude. Team players do NOT jeopardize the outcome of the game or face ejection by defending their honor between plays. Shut up, buckle the chin strap back up and get back into the huddle with your TEAMmates. Simple concept. Bust the other guys Ass with full focus, but do so before the whistle blows.
I fear that a smart opposing coach will encourage his players to entice DHall into committing a game changing penalty, he has earned that reputation honestly.
Now, all that said...I do not desire for him to leave this organization. I agree that he could be a game changing FS, and if we could adjust his contract to his level of play, am all for keeping him around a while our secondary grows.
