Happy for the players. As a fan, BFD.

[quote=CultBrennan59;990310]Notice how RG3 got in as a 'first ballot' pro bowler and had to leave because of injury; whereas Russell Wilson and Luck were 2nd and 3rd alternates and only got in because of injuries to the other QBs; translation RG3 is clearly better than them in the fan/player/coaches eyes.[/quote]


So was Jeff Saturday.

Um....I've been a Kerrigan backer since day one but how did he get in the pro bowl?
Seems to me he got shut down a lot the last half of the season.

4/5 of those players deserve to be in the pro bowl. Anthony Spencer deserved the pro bowl bid more than Kerrigan. Still glad to see London get respect.

Things have changed the last few years. Fletch gets a ton of respect from fans and media. I think since the skins have gotten more attention(basically rg3) and since Fletchers starting streak has grown, people are paying him the long overdue attention he deserved.

Wow, what a turn-around. We haven't seen many PBers in recent years.

Sadly, the most-deserving Redskin not named RGIII isn't in. Alfred Morris was second in the NFL in rushing and didn't make it? Explain that.

The game is a meaningless joke anyway. Tom Brady is sitting out with another "undisclosed injury"...must be a bruised ego again.

We were expecting a monster year from Kerrigan and it didn't quite happen, but he did have an outstanding year.

54 tackes, 4 TFL, 8.5 sacks, 2 FF, 1 recovery, 1 INT, 8 pass deflections, another defensive TD.

Maybe Orakpo's absense allowed the opposition to concentrate more on him with double teams. When Rak is on the field, they both deserve a double, but that's impossible. They help each other just by being on the field together.

I did see Kerrigan being held by the neck all year, of course uncalled. Orakpo gets the same treatment.

Check the stats Doug Martin had almost 50 catches and over 1900 total yards.

Morris had a heck of a season but he wasn't a factor in the passing game like Martin.

Martin was a beast in his own way. Better receiver than Morris is and from what I have seen a little more explosive. Still, both are going to be good for the next couple of years.

I would not call that an outstanding year, especially for a first round pick and a player that many thought is and will be better than Orakpo, he did not live up to expectations. Redskins blitz a lot which would single him up and teams did not really double him from what I saw like I thought they would. There were times this season where he was just completely non existent, Did he play in the playoff game vs Seattle? cause I did not see him do anything. Still, Orakpo/Carriker coming back should help him, but I think the discussion of Orakpo vs Kerrigan and who was better was quietly answered this past season.

They just need to do any with this game in the worst way possible. It's now even MORE watered down cause no one in the SB can play in the game.Who's great idea was it to play the game the week before the SB?
