The Oneida Indian Nation has come out in praise of DeAngelo Hall for saying the Redskins “probably should” change their team name, viewed by many to be offensive towards Native Americans.
In a recent appearance on FOX Sports1′s “Keepin’ it Real with Mike Hill,” DeAngelo Hall was asked to give comment on the Redskins name debate; to which Hall responded, the team “probably should” change their name.
While almost all of the focus at Redskins Park this month has been on whether coach Mike Shanahan will return for the fifth and final year of his contract, seven of the nine current players who preceded him in Washington could also be wearing burgundy and gold for the final time during Sunday’s game at the New York Giants.
Three key players on the Washington Redskins defense suffered injuries Sunday’s loss to the New York Giants, which officially eliminated the team from postseason contention.
Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall put it bluntly: ‘We can’t make it to the playoffs and expect to do anything in the playoffs the way we’ve been playing.’
DeAngelo Hall, the only defender in the league who’s returned an interception and a fumble (and he’s returned two interceptions) for a touchdown, is performing at a Pro Bowl level, and tells 106.7 The Fan’s Grant Pualsen that he’s working hard to leave a good taste in the organization’s mouth for contract time.
DeAngelo Hall kept things up against Denver, intercepting two passes from Peyton Manning, and of course returning one of those to the house. Hall’s touchdown added him to the history books as the first Redskin defender to score three touchdowns in a season.
Admit it. You’ve always been a little curious to hear DeAngelo Hall cut a wrestling promo like Ric Flair.
The Washington Redskins are facing nearly insurmountable odds of making the postseason, but aren’t willing to throw in the towel just three games into the season.
Mike Shanahan says the Washington Redskins’ poor start is a ‘temporary setback’ and that he has no plans to sit Robert Griffin III.
