Coaches like to say that players like Hatcher have a bit of an edge, or a mean streak. Hatcher said he is “a hard guy.” But perhaps veteran cornerback DeAngelo Hall described him best. “Just a dog,” Hall said. “Just a gangster, man. He’s unblockable.”

Coach Mike Pettine’s decision became tougher after Hoyer and Manziel played poorly in an exhibition loss at Washington on Monday night. Manziel also made an obscene gesture toward the Redskins’ sideline, an act Pettine called “extremely disappointing” and will likely result in a fine from the NFL.
