No one seemed to bristle at all last week when the Washington Redskins’ DeAngelo Hall told reporters that he would target Tony Romo’s injured ribs in the teams’ week three matchup Monday night. Members of the Cowboys and the media alike seemed to dismiss the comments, and Hall’s stated intentions, as “part of the game.”
But not everyone shrugged the comments off. Former Buccaneers and Raiders’ defensive lineman Warren Sapp, somewhat ironically nicknamed “The QB Killa,” took issue with Hall’s statement. In his new gig as an NFL Network analyst, Sapp called the comment “way out of line,” adding that Hall has more pressing concerns than aggravating Romo’s midsection.
"And even more than that, DeAngelo Hall, last time I remember, you're not one of the most feared hitters in this game, so you should be asking for a safety over the top with the burn rate you have, giving up the third-most touchdowns in the NFL,” Sapp said, via the Dallas Morning News. “There are a couple things you need to do other than worry about Tony Romo's ribs."
