DeAngelo Hall Ready To ‘Rise To The Occasion’ vs. Dez Bryant


DeAngelo Hall and Dez Bryant seem to love playing against one another when the Cowboys and Redskins matchup.

The two will go head-to-head again on Sunday night, and Hall wants fans to be ready for a great battle.   The trash talking cornerback told the Washington Post that he’s ready to rise to the occasion vs Bryant.

“It’s going to be a hell of a football game,” he said on Monday. “Any time you have a chance to go against somebody that you feel is one of the best, you’re going to try to rise to the occasion. That’s in anything you do. That’s just the competitiveness in all of us. … Any time you have a guy like that, who I feel like is a hell of a football player, and he’s obviously one of the best in the game, so you definitely want to bring it.”

Hall who statistically has gotten the better of Bryant during their matchups says the key to surviving Dez is to compete and not give him anything.

“You just try to play the whole down,” Hall said. “I was so frustrated watching [Denver cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie], and we were talking about it as a group, man. I felt like he was in good position a couple times, but just kind of, not knowing that Dallas offense, he kind of eased up for one second. You ease up for one second, and it can be 60 or 70 or 80 yards later, and that’s what happened a couple times to Denver’s secondary.”
