If you watched the first episode of HBO's "Hard Knocks," you likely witnessed DeAngelo Hall running his mouth from the sidelines during a joint practice when the Texans visited Washington for combined training camp activities. At the end of one play near where Hall was standing on the sidelines, he decided to get up in the face of DeAndre Hopkins in an effort to further fuel the already raging competitiveness between the receivers and defensive backs.
Hopkins had enough with Hall and shot back with: "I fear God, not you boy."
Not long after that scene, Hopkins is lined up against Hall. The receiver made a sharp cut to the outside for a reception as Hall slipped in the break and was injured as he crumpled to the field. Hopkins made it clear to Hall; "I just finished it. I didn't start nothing."
After the airing of this episode, DeAngelo Hall decidedly had enough of this story playing out through the media and chose to send a smug tweet to DeAndre Hopkins showing his obvious frustration:
When the highlight of your career is catching a 10yd pass on a DB while he slips and you feel like you did something. #SadDayInFootball— DeAngelo Hall (@DeAngeloHall23) August 13, 2015
Hopkins replied with:
Hope treatment going well. https://t.co/9wR4UrjEAP— Deandre Hopkins (@Nukdabomb) August 13, 2015
Then Hall fired back with some coaching advice:
@Nukdabomb I'm good to go young fella. Here's some advice don't stutter on your comebacks they're too easy to read. Take it or leave it— DeAngelo Hall (@DeAngeloHall23) August 13, 2015
It appears that Hopkins is taking the high road on this and hasn't replied further. Fun times!
