    Fletcher to Pro Bowl

    London Fletcher tweeted yesterday that he had been added to the Pro Bowl list. Does that mean that we stop bitching about how crappy the Pro Bowl and it’s selection process is?

    No way that Fletcher should have to be ‘added’ – he should have been there in the first place. He led the league in tackles (166) for crying out loud. Sure it’s great to see ‘ a wrong righted,’ but it doesn’t change the farcical nature of that NFL game in Hawaii. I digress, it doesn’t take away from the accolade and the accomplishment of a 36-year old man performing well enough to be ‘added’ to the Pro Bowl roster again in 2012. Congratulations London.

    Fletcher is a free agent this offseason. Retaining the 36-year old linebacker, is arguably the team’s biggest offseason need. You won’t likely ever hear that sentence again in your life. The man defies explanation, and hopefully will continue to do so for the Washington Redskins in 2012.

    Redskins Coaches at the Senior Bowl

    It was announced this week that the Washington Redskins coaching staff will man the sidelines for this year’s Senior Bowl. While the braintrust didn’t even think the game was important enough to attend this year, I guess this year they will have to act like it’s suddenly a very valuable tool in the entire ‘scouting process.’ To be honest, I think far too much is made of what some of these players do AFTER they’ve ever played their ‘regular football.’ All-star games like the Senior Bowl, coupled with the Scouting Combine have made what players do in the month or two following what has sometimes been a four-year college career, far too weighted on draft day sometimes.

    Regardless, it will be a fantastic opportunity for Mike Shanahan to get a look at a couple of pretty good quarterbacks in Ryan Tannehill and Nick Foles. With Matt Barkley and Landry Jones both announcing their intentions to sty in school, the vast quarterback pool has shrunk considerably, and it’s reasonable to expect that the Redskins will have been looking intently at any and all of the top quarterback prospects in the country.

    Kudo Awards: London Fletcher


    It was announced this week that London Fletcher had been added to the 2011 Pro Bowl roster. He should have been there in the first place. Today’s Kudo Award is being presented to the middle linebacker that continues to perform at an all-star level at 36 years old.

    Any 35-45 year old man that cheers for the Washington Redskins has to love Fletch – we can somehow live vicariously through him. It’s as if the fact that ONE 36-year old man has managed to play professional football well into his thirties, that somehow it’s possible for any and all. And while I guess the fact that Fletch still goes out and does it week in and week out, it IS possible – I’m not sure that its any more achievable than any other superhuman feat.

    Redskins News and Notes


    Football may be over for the Washington Redskins in the 2011 season, but there is still lots of news and lots going on at Redskins Park this week. Here are some of the highlights:

    Putting Things In Perspective


    We swept the Giants this year, with a very solid game against the Giants yesterday, following up on a very good performance in a shootout against one of the best teams/offenses in the league in New England. That was following a decent performance through 50 minutes against the Jets with Rex having a very off day. And that’s following a very good win against a young Seahawks team who just seems to give everyone fits.

    Rex Grossman’s play has been up and down, as expected, and he still makes way too many mistakes, and some of them crucial. But under Rex Grossman, this offense seems to take a little flight. It’s true that receivers like the ability to go deep and not have to get smacked around in the middle after a 5-yard slant. It’s also true it opens up those 5-yard slants to keep defenses honest to the threat. Rex Grossman gives us a chance to be a lethal offense… but that’s it… a chance. Read the rest of this entry »

    Analysis of the Washington Redskins and Fans


    Okay, it’s finally time I present this long-winded rant about the Redskins. Just a quick disclaimer, there may be some foul language, I may target some people, and this is not going to be a rant all about the team or coaches… “fans” are as open a target as any. Read the rest of this entry »

    Redskins Held to Victory over Cowboys


    I’ve never been a big fan of the officials. I’ve never really made that a secret. When they called unnecessary roughness on London Fletcher, I was fit to be tied. Redskins’ fans are all too familiar with the refs determining the outcome of games, but it’s a strange feeling when the call goes our way.

    A guy I work with told me he was going to root against the Redskins last week. He’s not a Cowboys fan, he just hates the Redskins. He told me about how he, and a bunch of his friends who are Cowboys fans, were going to go out to a bar just so they could talk smack to Redskins fans when they lost.
