Five Reasons To Vote Pierre Garçon To The 2014 NFL Pro Bowl

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 3, 2013 – 5:08 pm



Pierre Garçon has been who the Redskins brought him in to be.

After signing with Washington in the first hour of free agency in 2012, the wide receiver led the Redskins with  633 receiving yards despite missing six games with a foot injury.

In 2013, he’s contributed a durable campaign and entrenched himself as Washington’s primary threat in the passing game.

Here are five reasons the sixth-year receiver deserves a plane ticket to Hawaii: Read more »

(NFL Communications)

The revamped 2014 Pro Bowl added another wrinkle Tuesday.

In addition to seeing the AFC and NFC mix rosters with a schoolyard draft composing teams picked by the two top vote getters, the NFL has abandoned the standard blue and red motifs.

Instead, Nike has provided futuristic threads highlighted by day-glo yellow and orange. As only the athletic apparel company can, Nike makes pants and jerseys sound like stealth jets.

Redskins Players Check-In from Hawaii

Posted by Chris Herting on January 25, 2013 – 10:12 am


The 2013 Pro Bowl consisting of the AFC and NFC’s best will take place Sunday, Jan. 27, 2013 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu. Representing the Redskins this year are LB London Fletcher, LB Ryan Kerrigan, LB Lorenzo Alexander, OT Trent Williams and QB Robert Griffin III.

Griffin III did not make the trip, staying in Florida to begin his rehab process. However, the remaining players are already in the central Pacific enjoying some well-deserved relaxation time with family and friends and are sharing their adventures on the island across their various social media accounts.

Alexander Prepared For First Pro Bowl Trip

Posted by Brian Tinsman on January 24, 2013 – 5:09 pm

Alexander Pro Bowl

Redskins linebacker Lorenzo Alexander understands that the key to success is through preparation.  Throughout the offseason he prepares himself to be stronger and faster than the year before. During the season, he prepares himself to be the best player on gameday.

And when he finishes off a career year that leads the NFL in special teams tackles, he solicits advice on how to be ready for his first career Pro Bowl.

The first person he talked to was teammate London Fletcher, who will be joining Alexander for his fourth-straight trip to the Pro Bowl. Like Alexander, Fletcher was snubbed until later in his career, when he finally got the respect from his peers to make the trip to Hawaii.

But that’s about where the respect element ends, at least as far as hotel room charges in concerned. Read more »

Cheerleader Abby Reps Redskins Well

Posted by Brian Tinsman on January 30, 2012 – 1:00 pm

London Fletcher wasn’t the only Washingtonian lighting up the night in Honolulu yesterday, as he was joined by Redskins Cheerleader Abby Dymond on the sidelines.

This special honor was voted on by her Cheerleader teammates, to represent them at the Pro Bowl.  The honor was announced as a surprise at the Redskins-Jets game on Dec. 4, in front of a capacity crowd.

While in Hawaii over the last week, she was part of a squad of the NFL’s best cheerleaders.  Along with their performance at the Pro Bowl game, she made several appearances around the island to speak with community, military and corporate leaders.

Fletcher Plays Redskins Football In Hawaii

Posted by Brian Tinsman on January 30, 2012 – 12:12 pm

via NBC Sports

Is that the face of someone playing a meaningless exhibition game?

Despite everything that differentiates the Pro Bowl from true NFL football, there was a distinctly familiar feeling about last night’s ceremonial contest.

The temperature (80 degrees), location (Honolulu, Hawaii), jerseys, fans and protocol may have been very different, but Redskins No. 59 was the same constant force that he’s been for the last 15 years.

This was London Fletcher’s “game face” getting off the bus, via his Twitter account (@LFletcher59): Read more »

All-Pro Fletcher Finally Honolulu-Bound

Posted by Brian Tinsman on January 9, 2012 – 1:19 pm

Happy Lon-day afternoon, everyone.

On the first weekend of the offseason for linebacker London Fletcher, it was an exciting one, as he was named to the All-Pro team late Friday, and added to the Pro Bowl roster early this afternoon.

I believe the phrase goes, “Better late than never.”

Fletcher is finally enjoying his just deserts, following the best statistical season of his prolific career.  For comparison, his next-best teammate was cornerback DeAngelo Hall with a respectable 111, or roughly half of Fletcher’s tally.  The patriarch of the Redskins defense led the NFL in tackles by a wide margin, finishing with a career-best 209.

The numbers earned him his first career AP All-Pro designation, to the second team.  First teamers at the inside linebacker position were Patrick Willis (San Francisco); NaVorro Bowman (San Francisco), and Derrick Johnson (Kansas City).  Fletcher was joined on the second team by Texans linebacker Brian Cushing.

Of this group of five players, Fletcher ranked first in tackles, second in forced fumbles and first in interceptions.

And yet, despite his impressive resume, Fletcher remained on the outside looking in for the Pro Bowl.  Fletcher expressed his initial disappointments after hearing about his snub:

And these were the more outspoken frustrations of his teammates for him, courtesy of CSNWashington: Read more »
