On Thursday, star linebacker London Fletcher was a guest on “The Herd with Colin Cowherd” on ESPN Radio.
Fletcher spoke with Cowherd about his thoughts on the four remaining teams left in the playoffs: the Atlanta Falcons, Baltimore Ravens, New England Patriots, and San Francisco 49ers.
Fletcher has some “inside” knowledge on all four contenders. The Redskins played the Falcons and Ravens this year as well as the Patriots and 49ers last year.
Find out what London had to say about each team here (via ESPN Radio):

With the recent announcement of the 2013 Pro Football Hall of Fame finalists, Redskins fans could only shake their heads at the obvious omission of former “Hog,” left tackle Joe Jacoby.
Despite leading his offensive line to four Super Bowls (winning three), with four Pro Bowl nods and two All-Pro selections, Jacoby has been snubbed since his retirement in 1993. He was one-of-27 semifinalists announce in November, but must now wait until next year for this just deserts.
According to Pro-Football-Reference.com, Jacoby’s career performance is comparable to the likes of Willie Anderson, Jeff Saturday, Flozell Adams and Stan Jones; several of which have been or are expected to be inducted into Canton.
The only difference between these players and Jacoby, are his three Super Bowl rings with three different starting quarterbacks.

While all of us would much rather be covering practice this week as players prepare for the NFC Championship game, the offseason does offer time for reflection and review.
One of the best parts of working out of Redskins Park is digging through the filing cabinets full of miscellaneous photos, and digging back through the online archives looking for photos with a story.
Not every search yields exciting results, but every now and then a gem turns up of a memory lost in time. Don’t ask me why some of these photos were taken in the first place, but a tip of the cap to whoever decided they were worth saving in public record.
