London Fletcher Led Fan ‘Underrated’ Vote

A few weeks back, NFL.com skimmed through the Washington Redskins’ 80 years of history (which could only be done during a six month offseason), to bring to you their thoughts on the most overrated and underrated players in franchise history.

The league gave fans a chance to vote for the team’s most undervalued player in history and to no one’s amazement, consummate underdog London Fletcher led fan voting.


By now you know of Fletcher’s journey from undrafted afterthought to perennial NFC representative at the Pro Bowl, but what’s amazing is that while he has finally gotten the proper recognition he deserves he is still considered as, perhaps, the most underrated player in all the NFL.

Despite retirement rumors that circled over Redskins Park in the early stages of the offseason, Fletcher’s mindset is far away from that of Sunday couch potato.

Fletcher was joined by current Redskins running back Alfred Morris, mid-2oo0’s running back Ladell Betts and Hall of Famers Art Monk and Darrell Green on the Redskins top-five most underrated list.

The Redskins Blog opened up the forum to you on your thoughts of an all-underrated squad and Ken Harvey, Chris Hanburger, Gary Clark and Larry Brown were just some of the names brought up.

So far no quarterbacks have entered the discussion—is there one signal caller in particular you would dub as “underrated”?

Also, while the list looked in the rear view mirror with past performance, name one player on the current crew that you think is underrated now but will be in the spotlight by season’s end.

    Brad Johnson. He was a very good player for us for a couple of years. Was the last division title winner before RGIII. Honorable mention to Mark Brunell as he got us out of a playoff drought and Jay Schroeder as he had
    Taken the skins to the NFC championship game.

    Usually, Redskins QBs would make the list as overrated, not underrated. However, I would have to list, in order, Brunell, Brad Johnson, Kerry Collins. I would never put Schroeder on this list. I would say he was an overrated cry baby.
