Linus Parker "Bullet" Hall (December 10, 1916 - February 8, 2005) was a professional American football player for the Cleveland Rams and the San Francisco 49ers. In his rookie season, Hall led the league in passing, was second in passing yardage, and fifth in rushing yards. He was named the league's Most Valuable Player in 1939 and was the first professional player to complete over 100 passes in a single season.

He spent four seasons with the Rams, and after returning from military service during World War II, Hall played with the AAFC's San Francisco 49ers during their inaugural season. He moved to Memphis, Tennessee, after retiring from football and worked in the lumber business.
