"I’m hanging around with–y’know–we’ve got a younger team around here now.  These younger guys in the locker room, they’re doing all these different dances.  So in order to stay up on it, and stay young, I’ve gotta do a move here and there."

Sounds like it was LB Perry Riley who should have been locked on tight end Jason Witten on the 59-yard touchdown pass. CB DeAngelo Hall said as much after the game when he talked about London Fletcher having to leave the game with cramps and how the next guy in needs to make the play. Well, Rocky McIntosh came in but Riley slid over to Fletcher’s spot. Safety DeJon Gomes was deep and over the top, but he had to also worry about Laurent Robinson on the outside. Riley just lost sight of Witten

Mike Shanahan still confident in DeAngelo Hall - The Insider
"DeAngelo is going to come back and look and talk about the technique and what things we can do to get better," Shanahan said. "I believe he had 11 tackles in that game, and played extremely hard. I don’t like people to get down on themselves, but at the same time I like people to be tough on themselves. I’ve got a lot of belief in DeAngelo that he’ll come back and play extremely hard and take advantage of his opportunities next time he’s on the field."
