Redskins' Hall dishes on Al Davis

Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall had some unflattering things to say about Raiders owner Al Davis during a recent interview on a Washington radio station. The best story involved the hiring of (then) interim coach Tom Cable.

"Probably the funniest thing, I was pretty close to Lane Kiffin and after they fired Lane and were about to announce who the next coach was, I don't know if you guys saw this in the media world, but I was actually sitting there live, me and a couple other players there in the back," Hall said. "And [Davis] went through this whole spiel of what happened . . . and said our next coach is Tom Cable, he's going to be our interim coach. When everybody paused for Tom to come in, like a breakoff. [Davis] goes to the media guide and not even whispering says 'Hey, anyone got any information on this Tom Cable guy, I don't know where he comes from.'
"That's just vintage Al Davis. Making a move, not really knowing why, no real justification for doing it. But just saying, 'Hey, I want this guy, let's get him, I'll figure everything else out later.' And that's just how Al Davis is."

Something tells me Hall might not finish his career in Oakland.
