Earlier this week, DeAngelo Hall caused a stir with remarks claiming that he would be on the opposition's primary receiver for the duration of the season.
"From now on, I'm going wherever the [expletive] ball is going to be." Hall said Monday.
During Wednesday's open locker room session at Redskins Park, Hall's secondary-mate, Phillip Buchanon dismissed Hall's remarks.
"D-Hall was pissed, just like me," Buchanon said. When asked if he was bothered by Hall's comments, Buchanon said, "I was bothered by the loss. Houston's a good team, and they made the plays. It's over with."
Turning his attention to this week's opponent, the St. Louis Rams, Buchanon was full of praise for rookie quarterback Sam Bradford. "Disguising [our coverages] would help, because he's still learning," he said. " But he's going to be a very good quarterback. His recognition and his presence in the pocket are impressive."
Bradford completed 14 of 25 passes for 167 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the Rams' 16-14 loss to the Oakland Raiders last week. The loss dropped the Rams to 0-2 on the season.
