Look at the intensity in those eyes.
Before London Fletcher could leave everything on the field in a 24-23 loss to Dallas, before he could salute the fans for supporting him for seven years, he led the linebackers out of the home tunnel for most likely the last time.
Read the transcript of Fletcher’s speech here, and watch the video from CSN Washington below.
“Whether you’re in high school or college, you’ve got a game that means a little more than the other ones. There’s one game on your schedule that means a little bit more than the other ones. For us, this is that game. This is the Cowboys game. This is our game! This is that game that means more than all the other ones! You want to be remembered around here? Beat Dallas! You want to be remembered around here? Beat Dallas! That’s the mandate! Beat Dallas! Let’s go out there and get it done. We can control that. In this group, we’ve got the men to do it. Play with passion! Play with fire! Play with intensity! Be physical! Be focused! Let’s go get it! Like I say each and every week, linebackers set the tone! Linebackers set the tempo! LBs on three! One, two, three, LBs!”
