DeAngelo Hall is planning to target Tony Romo’s broken rib on Monday night. Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett wonders: What other aiming point is there?
“Well, you think about it: He’s not allowed to hit him in the head. And he can’t hit him below the knees. So he’s only got one place you can hit him,” Haslett said. “It’s such a shame he’s hurt.”
After the sarcasm and laughs died down, Haslett continued.
“I think [Hall] was joking more than anything. He was kind of chuckling about it, but realistically it’s the only place you really can hit a quarterback now. I know Romo. He’s a tough guy. He’s a tough-minded guy, so he’ll be ready to roll.
Haslett said he won’t try to test Romo’s health by calling more blitzes early in the game than usual.
“I’ll try to put us in position where we can get off the field as much as we can,” he said. “Obviously we’ll have to plan for guys who are playing and not playing, and you have to adjust as the game goes on, but I’m not worried about those type of things.”
