For the Redskins fans who are always upset at the constant disrespect shown to the team's emotional leader, London Fletcher, I have some good news for you on this Monday morning. London Fletcher himself tweeted this earlier today.
Aloha! Officially added to the pro bowl roster today!— London Fletcher (@LFletcher59) January 9, 2012
We'll take that as the most official kind of word there is, straight from the horse's mouth. It's good that Fletcher made the Pro Bowl this year because it was a pretty big injustice that Brian Urlacher made the team ahead of him. Flethcer led Planet Earth in tackles this year with 166, making him the only player to average ten tackled per game over the 16 game regular season. He also had 1.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and two interceptions.In a career full of Pro Bowl snubs, this might have been the most egregious. But that is rectified now, and the Redskins now have their first representative for the big game in Hawaii.
