    Not exactly going to cry over it. Might have helped, might have hurt. Seems like a Redskins type of acquisition.

    What? I thought the Redskins had a "proud secondary of all first round draft picks"?

    What do they need a corner for?

    Kinda have to assume he got the same offer and from a couple teams and picked or the Pats didn't even try.

    I never really thought the Pats would get him. Hall did say this summer that Dimitroff told him he wasn't a Patriots type of player and Hall said he responded that he didn't want to play for the Patriots. So whether the Patriots interest was real or not, he probably wasn't going to be all that interested in coming to the Patriots.

    Also working against the Pats was it was pretty clear that the Pats would never make any promises about a new long term deal which aparently the Redskins have if things work out. I am sure that the Pats would not commit the type of years and money that Daniel Snyder would off of a half year on the team and not acting out in any way.

    Maybe the Redskins will release Shawn Springs as rumored. Not that he is close to what he was, but he might be an upgrade at least as a back up.

    I clicked on this thread because I was wondering why a thread about the great Redskins theme song was doing on the Pats board.

    It's a good song I think. It's unique if nothing else. I like it.

    For 400 grand thats a deal you make. After Randy we cant say crap about good players in bad situations. Randy was the worse than hall, and he turned out fine in a better situ.

    You don't know what the issues were with Hall or where he was at in confronting them. The guy who flipped him for a 2nd and a 5th was the former head of our scouting department who determined DeAngelo was not going to cut it (nor did he care to) in the defacto Patriots system he was installing in Atlanta. Randy was a rare talent on the cusp of 30 and watching a HOF career fizzle. He literally begged Bill to save him. This kid could be a flash in the pan talent who will never achieve his potential. And he doesn't sound like his circumstances bother him all that much...yet.

    I think this was a stumbling, fumbling, bumbling move by the Pats, considering the amount of our injuries in the secondary.....and a BRILLIANT move by the skins.....solidifying their secondary and preparing for postseason.......Not sure what BB is thinking.....but Hall should have been a HUGE upgrade here............

    No ****... when hasn't being bested by Dan Snyder on a FA been a clear indication of what a stumbling, fumbling, bumbling organization we are comparatively speaking...

    Are you sayig that taking a chance on Hall for 400 grand is a bad move? At WORST we cut him and eat the money, at best he helps the secondary not be jagville USA. Randy was every bit the cancer that hall is before he came to the pats, and he would have shut his mouth over 10 games so he could get payed next year!

    Hall's a neanderthal, he had his choice where he wanted to play and he chose the dysfunctional franchise close to home AKA the Redskins. Screw him dont want a player as dumb as him on the Pats.

    Upon quick glance at the header, I also thought it was about their song.

    I don't see how signing Hall solidifies anything. Did you watch any Raiders games? I have. He is not a good CB. Maybe you can scheme in a zone to cover up his lack of coverage ability and hope that he can occasionally ballhawk a pick in between getting burned. But the guy can't tackle and can't cover. Why would anyone want him?

    The Pats never had a real shot at the guy. He wanted to play in the Virginia area because he went to Virginia Tech. Besides, when did an average CB like Hall become Deion Sanders?

    You anti-Patriots guys are really out there.

    He wasn't that good in Atlanta either. He had a very good rookie and sophomore season and coast so far the rest of his career living off his reputation.

    Maybe he will grow up and put some work in behind his natural ability, but until he does he will be yet another overrated underachiever who lived off his repuation earned early in his career like Roy Williams and Kendrall Bell.
