London Fletcher: Snubbed by the Pro Bowl?

After news broke that Redskins linebacker London Fletcher didn’t make the Pro Bowl, plenty of strong arguments for and against Fletcher were made on Twitter. We’ve rounded up some of them for you.

How does London Fletcher, a guy who leads the entire NFL in tackles, not make the Pro Bowl? Ridiculous!

Middle linebackers that beat out London Fletcher: Urlacher and Willis.

London Fletcher made 71 more tckls than Brian Urlacher this season. Forced 3 more fumbles, had 2 more sacks. Yet Urlacher is the pro bowler?

For everyone citing London Fletcher’s tackles stats, the Colts, Skins, Bills and Vikings are all among the top six teams in tackles.

And the top four individual tacklers are linebackers on the Skins, Browns, Vikings and Colts.

RT @DonteStallworth: Man how has London Fletcher only been to TWO pro bowls in his career? This dude is a monster, he brings it EVERY play!

Don’t know if I should be upset or laugh. Obviously it doesn’t matter what u do on the field! #probowl

London Fletcher is my guy. He is a consummate professional and one of the game’s best inside linebackers. But Redskins have finished MORE

last or tied for last four straight seasons and in five of six. It’s all about winning. Is it fair? No. But life isn’t fair. Every MORE

NFL player, Fletch included, understands how this works.

Former teammate London Fletcher needs to be on the NFC Pro Bowl roster. That’s the one “snub” that stands out for me. #Redskins #NFL

There aren’t words to describe the lack of national respect for London Fletcher. Guess he doesn’t do enough choreographed dances to get pub.

— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) December 28, 2011

Seriously, I could care less, but London averaged 11.4 tackles in losses, and 7.6 tackles in wins. That’s not a coincidence.

— Dan Steinberg (@dcsportsbog) December 28, 2011

The fact that London Fletcher was not voted onto the ProBowl team speaks volumes about how weak the process is!

— CHICK HERNANDEZ (@CHICKatCSN) December 28, 2011

Pats, Niners win games RT @NFLSkins Bias against Redskins players? ACarter and CRogers leave and make the Pro Bowl, but Fletcher doesn’t

— Rick Maese (@RickMaese) December 28, 2011

London Fletcher has played like a Pro Bowl player all season. Voted in or not he’s a true pro!
