London Fletcher offers a Hall pass
By Matt Mosley
Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher seemed amused by cornerback DeAngelo Hall's rant following Sunday's loss to the Houston Texans. Hall emphatically stated the Redskins defense was "his" and indicated that he should've been assigned to the Texans' top receiver, Andre Johnson, in crunch time. And after watching what happened to Phillip Buchanon and Reed Doughty on a fourth-and-10 play in the fourth quarter, it's hard to argue with Hall.
"I wasn't really aware of the conversation, or the question and whatever," said Fletcher per the Post. "I understand him wanting to be a playmaker and make plays. Obviously, you've got some elite receivers that we're gonna face throughout the course of the season. You're gonna want those challenges. As a competitor, you want to go up and face their best. ... But I understand what he means by it."
I think the Redskins are about to get on a nice little roll here. I can't wait for them to get to Philadelphia on Oct. 3. Been eyeing that game since April.
