The silver lining to the season, we have a kicker! :celebrate:
which if he would have been playing since week one then we might have 2 more W's on the record

I have as much respect and maybe more of London but I'm only speaking the truth here. I hope he's healthy so he can continue to help these young players grow but if he's hurt, someone will have to step up.


I agree with this. Fletcher is clearly not the same player that he was last year. Age was going to catch up with him eventually.

I had noticed this as well....especially in yesterday's game. Maybe he has been playing through an injury.....remember back in the preseason London was out/missed some practices and everyone was pretty secretive about what the problem was, maybe this was the reason.

Any news about the status of the injury to Fletcher????

I am REALLY hoping it is not serious. We saw what happened to Baltimore last Sunday and they DO have a secondary. :cry: :cry: :cry: :oops: :oops: :oops:
Daniel Snyder has defined incompetence, failure and greed to true Washington Redskins fans over the last decade. Stay away from football operations !!!

I heard he's expected to play this week.

From Yahoo FF

Mon, Oct 22
Coach Mike Shanahan described the injury that Fletcher suffered Sunday as a "slight hamstring strain," the Washington Times reports.
Recommendation: We'll track his status in the coming days, but the odds would seem to favor Fletcher, given that he has played in 231 consecutive games.

I read on twitter that Shanahan said Fletcher has been having issues with his balance and is going to see a neurologist to figure it out...

Yeah I read this too. http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/20 ... ce-issues/

Without Fletch I think we will be getting burned more often.
