I completely agree. If the Skins had a winning record or was even a team on the rise/a legitamite threat type of team, players would get more recognition. But being in the cellar and being laughed out most weeks, I don't think people give our players a real hard look regardless of how truly gifted they are. Plus this damn, let the people vote players in is so damn faulty. You'd think by now the nflpa or coaches would have some sort of voting weight to keep this from being a popularity contest.

Re: Redskins Pro Bowl Thread

I don't even know why they still have the Pro Bowl other than it being a money source.

Re: Redskins Pro Bowl Thread

Maybe they left Fletcher out cause they are afraid he would hit someone like Sean Taylor, you know those Redskins.

Re: Redskins Pro Bowl Thread

I beleive it was discussed at length last year but the Pro Bowl needs to go away it is a joke. I never watch it and I am a football junkie.

I think they should just come up with a All-Pro team with 1st 2nd and maybe 3rd string. Have the coaches and players vote and be done with it. Only thing dumber then the fans voting for the players is actually playing this game. The sport doesn't lend itself well to a all star type game.

Re: Redskins Pro Bowl Thread

Alexander and Fletcher have been named alternates. 1st for Fletch, 2nd for Alexander I believe (haven't confirmed that though)

Re: Redskins Pro Bowl Thread

In this forum we are pissed that Fletcher got left out, how about Matthew Stafford being left out for Eli Manning or Navorro Bowman who I think had a monster year?

Re: Redskins Pro Bowl Thread

I don't understand why fans get worked up about Pro bowl voting. It's a popularity contest that generally rewards the winning teams. And personally the Redskins are a 5 win team so I am not all that concerned with players getting individual awards. I actually prefer that they have none...maybe it will bond them together and propel them to actually acomplish something worth recognition next season.

Good post. I would add that it rewards teams with the most brain-dead homerish fans.

Re: Redskins Pro Bowl Thread

I'm guess if you went around the NFL and asked players who had the most tackles this year most would have no clue. Having 10 to 13 tackles in a game does not make it on ESPN unless there is a turnover involved. Then you add in the skins record and that explains why Fletcher did not get any votes.

Even beyond the tackle stats, Fletcher had more INTs and had 3 FFs compared to Willis' 4.


Not really sure why Fletcher didn't get the start in the Pro-Bowl just on stats alone.


That said, Tim Tebow is a alternate. Do you need to know anything more?
