I say retire his number! sorry some cross post humor there.

Maybe he can go out and take the first snap - even though i feel like that is cheating.

I think its worth the use of a gameday roster spot. Its improved lately with some pro-bowl nods, but Fletcher has not recieved his due over his exceptional career. Id love him to continue the streak until the day he retires.

Yeah good point. I think you changed my opinion of it being "cheating". He has been so overlooked that it could be considered an honerary gesture.

I was looking more at the angle of the team offering it up as a way of saying thank you. This is all provided its not something that has him out multiple weeks.
Edit: i know Fletch wouldnt care. But i do remember recently seeing them ask him about the last game he missed and he said they started the game in a particular scheme that kept him on the sideline and he was like wtf? But he laughed about it.

Re: Week 8: Redskins Vs Steelers Matchup Thoughts

How bad is Fletcher's injury? Depending on the severity I could see him trying to play on it. At least for a few series.

Yeah the balance issue is scary. As much as I hate to say it, maybe Fletch's body is telling him it is time to hang it up. I hope it is nothing serious.

Re: Week 8: Redskins Vs Steelers Matchup Thoughts

He’s got some problems with his balance. It was Monday evening when I found out,” Shanahan said, via Tarik El-Bashir of CSNWashington.com. “Before we say we’re worried, let’s get a review from the doctors and see what they have to say. We’ll know more tomorrow.”
Good advice......

He's seeing a neurologist, which is scary. I don't think he plays, which honestly makes me very sad. He deserves the streak.

On the bright side, our defense cant possibly be worse without him. Its not like we can fall to 33rd in pass defense.
