I had almost forgotten that DeAngelo Hall hadn't actually been hit with the inevitable fine the league was bringing his way until Wednesday. A full 17 days after Hall went overboard, berating and making contact with an official in Pittsburgh, Hall's finally been slapped with his fine.
Hall has had a terrible season from every standpoint, so this is just icing on the cake. There's a strong indication he'll be done in Washington after this season, because he simply doesn't seem to mesh with the way the franchise is taking things in this new era.
On to what else is being talked about in the league's most popular division...
From ESPNDallas.com's Todd Archer: The league has awarded DeMarcus Ware half a sack from the Philadelphia game. It came a few days late, but it extends his sack streak to seven.
From Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News: Center Ryan Cook is missing practice time with a knee injury, which is concerning with Phil Costa already down.
From Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger: Perry Fewell and the Giants are "tinkering" with ways to get to the quarterback. The pass rush hasn't been the same this year.
From Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer: The return of Danny Watkins means rookie Dennis Kelly can slide over to take over at right tackle, with King Dunlap going back to the left side and Demetress Bell taking a seat.
From PhillyMag.com's Tim McManus: There's no talk of a new contract for Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and "that is not expected to change any time soon."
From CSN Washington's Tarik El-Bashir: Despite conflicting reports, it turns out Mike Shanahan did indeed have $3,700 in cash and his passport stolen in Pittsburgh.
From Rich Campbell of the Washington Times: It looks as though Pierre Garcon will finally return to the Redskins' lineup Sunday.
