Yeah, if you don't at least know HOW to play man coverage, I don't see how you can be an elite defensive back, whether it's corner or safety. There's always going to be some overloaded formation or creative route-running that can force you to cover your guy one-on-one. Of course, the Raiders are different because they voluntarily played man on most plays, but when it comes down to it, so what. I've seen plenty of other guys do a better job than that.

Basically, nobody really won in that deal. Except for all the guaranteed money Hall gets to keep.

I believe this to be true also. He always loved to freelance and take chances in atl., but you can't play man to man with that attitude because as soon as you guess wrong...it's a td. That happened(s) a lot.

Haynesworth just became his best friend though.

i think hall needs 2 be in the right def scheme to be good.. he was pretty good in atl and when he tried to play man at oakland.. he was a poor man willie williams at the end of his career..
