I think he'd rather play in the Super Bowl, anyway...

Fletch deserves to be in. He's playing hurt, I mean Shanny said today that Fletch can't walk during the week, then balls out on Sundays.

He is tied for 7th in the NFL with 5 INTs (as a LB!)

He is 10th in the NFL (7th in NFC) in total tackles!

Fletcher has made some huge plays this season. Still fresh in my mind is that hit that denied the Cowboys a TD. I dont think we are too concerned about Pro Bowl anyways. All focus on those cowgirls.
Sean Taylor starting free safety Heavens team!

Yes, 1/3 of it is.

1/3 from coaches.

1/3 from fans.

The Pro Bowl selection is great recognition but the selection process is greatly flawed IMO

a few years ago Tom Brady was not selected - that was a travesty

BUT

London Fletcher has certainly played well enough in his many seasons to get selected more than a couple of times, IF that, I know he was selected once


my request was more to see if anyone can explain those obvious snubs ...

and

this year's snub of Alfred Morris and London Fletcher makes this whole thing a joke

My 2 cents
We are very fortunate to have Kirk Cousins - I'm looking forward to Griffin getting back on the field

HAIL


Week 2 - 17-15

Andrew Luck - Can you seriously argue that at this point in time he's better than the three who made it? I had the same curiosity when I read Griffin was the only rookie QB, but no way I put Luck this year above Manning, Brady or Shaub.

Russell Wilson - Ditto, the only candidate for him to replace would have been Griffin and no way do I put Wilson over Griffin.

Doug Martin - Peterson and Lynch, sure. But I'm with you on this one. I'd have put either Martin or Morris in before Gore.

I think this sews up RGIII ROY Award. An NFC East Championship would seal the deal.

Neither Luck nor Wilson will be Division Champions. And Griffin has had the more impressive season in terms of efficiency and versatility.

Ticks me off that Luck is even in the conversation. Most of his stats are miserable.

Once Again, it is amazing the leap in year 3 of the Shanaplan

From the article:
Man, you know things have turned around for the Washington Redskins when they put three players in the Pro Bowl and everybody's talking about the Redskins players who should have made it and didn't.
I know he got a pretty good zip on the ball. He has a quick release. . . once I seen a coupla' throws, I was just like 'Yeah, he's that dude.'"

guys, these are great recognition and awards.....BUT, this team WILL BE BUSY gunning for the SB.
