I disagree, at least based on last year, and I don't think he's improved that much upon his overrated season from a year ago... I admittedly haven't seen too much of him this year but I'm assuming those who easily have him top 5 in the game thought highly of his play last year
him making the pro bowl last year was a joke IMO... ken lucas was probably the number 1 CB in the NFC with numerous other guys ahead of hall including terrence newman, sheldon brown, dre bly, ronde barber, and nathan vasher... a lot of the hype he got last year started after the eagles game in which he somehow got credited for shutting down TO despite TO getting 7 catches for 112 yds
hall is decent but not top 5... guys like champ bailey, mcalister, ronde, dre bly (dukes played with a club on his hand last year and still was covering guys well), and newman are 5 CBs pretty easily ahead of him in my book... plenty of others I'd put ahead of hall as well

Deangelo Hall is a top 5 CB. Please don't act stupid.
Oh he's probably top 5 but he isn't even close to being on Bailey's level. That guy is a lock for the hall of fame. I've never seen a corner play the run like a linebacker, shut down one side of the field, and at the same time make so many game-changing plays.
Hall talks himself up a little, the media says a couple of positive things about him and all of a sudden he's the best guy in the league. It's just the thing to say; it happens all the time.
Rod Woodson was the best. He hit people like a linebacker, was a shutdown corner and was even a good return specialist. Nobody played the position OVERALL as well. Deion was the best cover corner, but Woodson is best overall.

Sure, it's classic CJ, sure it's an excuse, sure, he hasn't done anything this season, but this owner is feeling good about CJ this weekend. The guy is, without question, emotionally driven. He's been quiet, he's been non-productive. Sure, he's also been double and triple covered, but he's just plain been boring. I'm excited to see CJ excited.
I'm taking him at his word this time... expect 2+ TDs from CJ this weekend.
Apparently English wasn't CJ's major in college?
Doesn't a double negative make it a postive? So, if he "ain't had no energy", does that mean he's had energy? Forgetting the fact that he used ain't repeatedly.
Anyways, whoever thinks D Hall will shut him down should go back and watch Steeler highlights. I think every receiver on the Steeler's roster burnt him, not just the shoeless Ward.
