Just for fun, a little name-in-public poll for fun.
(sorry, messed up the poll)
I want him to sign with NE (minimum $, cut at no cost if he's a feminine hygene product) just to see the look on Al Davis's face. Will it be the LaMont Jordan scenario again?
I hope and think he signs with us.
Id be shocked. but hes pretty good i think
BB and the coaching staff know what the defenses biggest and only real weakness is the secondary, all teams playing vs the Pats know its the teams biggest weakness. BB is always looking to improve the team, D Hall could and will help the team BB knows this, is a deal going to happen who knows, is BB and the FO looking into landing Hall... Id be shocked if they werent.
Giants, Redskins, Steelers and Pats are only 4 teams looking at.
According to rumours, anyhow.
I see the decider for us being that Hall can help us get an edge when we play the Raiders... :rofl:
Voted yes, hope we do.
Paybacks a biatch....

Profootballtalk.com is hearing that the Giants are out of the bidding for free agent DeAngelo Hall. PFT also hears that the Saints are in.
There is reportedly a feeding frenzy to get in touch with Hall, who despite being overrated is only 24 and could certainly help multiple teams down the stretch if they use him correctly. The teams after Hall mostly play man coverage in the secondary. Tampa 2 teams do not appear to be in hot pursuit.
Dont be an idiot Hall sign with the Pats baby...
Keep in mind, Hall was not even good enough to be a Raider, if he is lucky enough to get a tryout with the Patriots my guess is that BB sees how bad he sucks and says '' thanks but no thanks '' . The young guys we got know the system and they are just as good as Hall if not better, i say NO GO on the raider reject.
I dunno Moss didnt look all that as a Raider.... Just a quick word on the rooks, after seeing Wheatly's hand just dangleing going back into the locker room hes going to be out months if not all season, Webster who the team brought back couldnt even make the team and was beat out by rookies.
Theres zero chance Hall will end up with the Steelers, they already have the best defense in the NFL no reason to sign Hall.
That's kind of a half-truth. He lost the numbers game by being injured early in camp. He does give me the "made-of-glass" vibe, but that sums up the whole frikkin secondary except for Meri and O'Neil, the latter of which is not getting enough respect in my opinion.
Whats your take on Hall, are you hoping he signs with the Pats?
I'm guessing he's looking to play zone and use his talent and instincts instead of man where he gets beat up like a femme at a Steelers game.
I still think it'll be one of these three. Hopefully the first at least gets in the mix.
I dunno. I think we'll see him or Law get what they want if Wheatley's about to winter on Injury Island.
FWIW, a little scribble on the subject:
cant access the site from my dumb work computer.
No biggie, just a fan article saying the Pats would be able to rehabilitate the lads career.
Moss was a proven vet about to be catching passes from Brady, Hall is a kid with no prior success, Moss is a 1st ballot HOFer and was worth the risk. Bad comparison there.
Wheatley may be able to play with a cast like Hobbs, Bruschi and Seymour did/does, i hope so anyway.
Hes been in the league 4 years and made the probowl twice, that dont mean alot but he to say hes had no prior success is a bit too much imo. Hes only 24 and can still be groomed especially with a hc like BB and a veteran defense like the Pats have.
As to the "may be able to play with a cast" I think you nailed it. Pats may have fitted him with a cast, wait a couple weeks and then try him on the field to see if he can get it done while encumbered. If not, THEN IR. We'll know by early Dec.
EDIT: It is because of this uncertainty and Hobbs' injuries that BB is suddenly desperate enough to consider Hall, not that I think the Pats will offer as much as say, Dallas.
Are you saying that someone playing with a cast is better than Hall? LOL. I've heard the 'raider reject' putdown, but that's a new one.
No, where did I say that?
Hall is not a Patriot. If you followed the Patriots management philosophy you'd know that they assign a value to each player. There is a salary cap in this league. The Patriots will not overpay for Hall, while I predicted that someone else will. With the Pats insight into Hall's persona from Dimitriof in ATL, given the risks of a non-functioning player, the Pats might take Hall for a minimish contract with some creative bonus but they won't throw $ at him.
If he signs here, we officially need t-shirts that say:
"NERRP: New England Raider Rehab Project"
Honestly, before long Kraft will have a show called "Flip That Reject".
Does Dallas even have cap space? It seems like they've spent 3 salary caps worth of money on their offense.
Here's a little nugget from today's PC:
Special talents - Reiss' Pieces - Boston.com
Contrast BB's depiction of his non-interaction with Hall and how he sucked up to AD at a prior bowl game and how he always goes out of his way post game to meet opposing quality players. Hall ain't gonna come here.
Neither was Moss, before last year's record breaking season..........
Hall signed with the Redskins.
