I voted for him, hope he gets in. Wish fan voting was limited-either by IP or registration, seems like that's better than being able to vote freely

Re: The official get London Fletcher to the probowl thread

Last year, Fletcher most definitely deserved to make the pro-bowl. This year, he's OUR best linebacker but I wouldnt put him in the top 5MLBs in the NFC. DEFINITELY not in the top 3, so he shouldnt be in legitimate consideration. In my opinion, the only player on our roster who legitimately deserves to make the NFC team right now its Haynesworth... and perhaps Suisham. Atleast until he misses a field goal.

I voted for Fletcher as much on whole body of work. As for our players, I only voted for AH, brian Orakpo, and Hunter, not much as a punter, but a special teams ace in the hole!

It would be a shame if Fletcher ends up playing his entire career without ever going to the pro-bowl, but he simply hasn't earned it this year IMO. If Fletcher went, it would only mean that another guy, who really deserved it this year, didnt make the cut, and that's just not right.

It might not be right, but it happens every year. And London is Number 3 in the conference (6th in the league) for tackles this year so he is right there in the mix. I don't think it is an unfair or un-earned reward if he gets in.

Re: The official get London Fletcher to the probowl thread

also there are 2 inside and 2 olb spots for the NFC, plus alternates, and remember that teams going to the superbowl will not have players represented (How the NFL came up with that is beyond my comprehension). All in all LF is deserving, statistically, and by his history. I wonder if his presence has diminished also as our line has started to gel thus taking him out of plays also.

Re: The official get London Fletcher to the probowl thread

this sucks to say, but the way willis and lofton are playing, fletch doesnt have much of a shot. I think its funny that he has hall of fame numbers with no pro bowls to show for it. I think its more likely that he will make the hall than make the pro bowl

Re: The official get London Fletcher to the probowl thread

It's hard to believe with the numbers he's posted through the years he has never made a pro-bowl. I'm going to vote for him and hopefully this will be the year for him. IMO there's not many players in the league more deserving than London.

Was thinking the same. He had just one or two tackles last game, which seems almost unheard of for London.

This also explains I think why our run defense has been lagging. Haven't heard anything about London being nicked up so I wonder if he's truly slowing down w/ age

Going into the season I had this fear that this was year Fletch would just drop in production due to age...but I'm not sure that's necessarily the case right now. It was commonly thought that a strong DL would benefit the linebackers (namely Fletch) but I wonder if the DL is just so good that few opportunities are getting past them and to the linebackers. Thereby lowering the stats for guys like Fletch
