"You know what man, Jay's a little bit, he don't really understand, I guess, the game, the game of football," Hall said on Monday. "And in the game of football, you're gonna see guys several times in their career. You know, he completed four passes against me when I was out in Oakland and he was in Denver on a Monday Night Football game, and I knew leading up to the game he was still feeling good about that. He made some smart, snide comments about that after that game, so I knew definitely he was gonna try to come out there and try me, and it didn't work for him."
Hall was then asked about the Chicago Bears' offensive personnel.
"They've got some great players, they've got some great players," he
said. "They've definitely got some players out there, man....Jay's a
good quarterback. He has that swagger and that confidence that you like
out of your quarterback. If he's on your team, you love him to death,
you'll ride or die with him. if he's not on your team, he's a guy that's
gonna get into it with almost everybody on the field....They've got the
weapons. They've got the weapons, man. But I guess our scheme and our
guys just wanted it a little bit more that day."
Cutler wanted to burn Hall like he did in Denver, and says he'd throw it his way again.
"I've played against him before," Cutler said, at his own press conference. "There's no reason to shy away from him. I mean, that's hard for me to say, throwing four picks at a guy, but I'd still, if we had to play them tomorrow, I'd go at him every time, if we could."
Meanwhile, the Bears head into their bye week in disarray, with a freaked out fanbase.
