The Redskins season got off to a rough start. In early November, it looked like the ‘Skins playoff chances had already faded away. However, thanks to a seven game winning streak to close out the season, including Sunday night’s win over the Dallas Cowboys, Washington is back in the postseason. It won’t be easy to make it eight straight wins but Washington has gotten hot at the right time and the nation’s capitol will be electric in anticipation of Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks.
DeAngelo Hall joined 106.7 the Fan in Washington D.C. with LaVar and Dukes to talk about how the team turned things around after a 3-6 start to the season, how much better it is for the Redskins to play on Sunday as opposed to Saturday, whether he did anything special to get in the head of Dez Bryant the other night, if he thinks Washington can go on a Giants-like run this season and whether they feel like they have an advantage when it comes to playing Russell Wilson and the Seahawks because they get to practice against Robert Griffin III.
How the team was able to turn things around after a 3-6 start to the season:
“Not at all. Didn’t really even do any talking to him. He caught a couple of balls on me One was kind of on a scramble drill where Tony (Romo) got outside the pocket, he kind of pushed off, I kind of slipped and then I kind of tapped him on the helmet and was like ‘good catch.’ That’s kind of how I kept it all game. I didn’t feel like it was me versus him. I wanted our guys to come out there and win the game. I knew me and him, matchup, was going to be a big part of that but it wasn’t going to be the only part of that equation but I try to go out there and have fun. I try to go out there and have as much fun as possible and I did, I did. Anytime you can come out and get a win in a game like this that means so much for this city, this team, the organization, man I’m on cloud nine.”
Whether he thinks the Redskins can go on a Giants-like run to finish the season:
“It’s a little bit different. I haven’t really gotten a chance to critique their offense but Russell is a little bit different kind of athlete than Robert. Robert is a little more straight line fast where this kid kind of has a little more juke than actual speed but he has good pocket awareness and haven’t really seen how they’ve been putting their points up but they’ve been putting up a lot of points these last three weeks and we’re going to have our hands full as a defense keeping those guys out of the end zone and our offense is definitely going to have their hands full with that defense they’ve got.”
