DeAngelo Hall banned from interview for wearing illegal logo
Here’s a note from the Denver Post that week: With Broncos star receiver Brandon Marshall missing the opener to serve his one-game suspension, Mike Shanahan built his game plan around Royal beating Hall. Afterward, Hall said the Broncos outschemed the Raiders – a term that points a finger at the coaching staff. Cutler scoffed at that notion. “We played one-on-one football with them; we didn’t outscheme them,” Cutler said. “Eddie Royal beat DeAngelo Hall time after time after time. That’s what happened.” Other reports indicated that Cutler laughed while saying this. Then this week, after Hall tied the NFL record for interceptions against Cutler, the quarterback remained unimpressed , saying “if we had to play them tomorrow, I’d go at him every time, if we could.” During a late-morning appearance on SportsCenter, that clip was played for Hall, who laughed in turn.
Still, Shanahan on Monday didn’t rule out some kind of team punishment for Hall, pending any league discipline. “If there is something that occurs, you’ve got to be strong enough to stay away from it,” Shanahan said. “That’s part of being a good leader and a very smart football player.” On Wednesday, Shanahan said he didn’t anticipate that Hall would be suspended for the incident. Sanders will be headed for a meeting of his own with NFL officials, who want to discuss his fourth-quarter leg cramp in a 24-17 victory Oct. 21 against Cincinnati . Sanders maintains he did nothing wrong when he suddenly dropped to the ground with the Steelers nursing a seven-point lead. Officials stopped play after Sanders lay on the turf, and television announcers suggested the third-year receiver was faking it so Pittsburgh could avoid using a timeout.

Bryant caught eight passes that day for 145 yards and two touchdowns, including one for 85 yards. But the Cowboys lost that contest, too, 38-31. Those two games helped keep Dallas out of the playoffs. At 6-foot-2, 222 pounds, Bryant is a physical force who can overpower opposing corners even if they are in relatively good position. He finished last season with a career-high 92 receptions in 16 games. Hall insisted that theres no guarantee he will be the player matched up primarily against Bryant .
