Like Clockwork, NFL Again Snubs Redskins LB London Fletcher for Pro Bowl

London FletcherYou better not pout.
You better not cry.
you better watch out.
I’m telling you why.
Santa NFL snubbed London again.

Roger made a list. He fluffed the fuzz.
He took it to heart. 
He checked TV buzz,
But the list ain’t that smart.
Santa NFL snubbed London again.

London is an iron man,
a one-man tackling machine. 
Though fate dealt him a losing hand
the snub is just so mean.

You better not pout.
You better not cry.
you better watch out.
I’m telling you why.
Santa NFL snubbed London again.

The NFL announced the Pro Bowl selection today. No Washington Redskins player made the list. Fourteen year veteran London Fletcher tops the chart as the NFL taklers as he usually does. As usual, the NFL ignored the evidence of Fletcher’s stat line and game video to select Patrick Willis (49ers) and Brian Urlacher (Bears) instead.

NFL analyst Michael Lombardi wondered about the ommission in his assessment of the NFC Pro Bowl roster. “Not sure how he is off this list,” writes Lombardi. 

Fletcher made the 2010 Pro Bowl, his first, as an alternate when Jonathan Vilma qualified for the Super Bowl. 

The NFL named Redskins castoffs CB Carlos Rogers and DE Andre Carter to the Pro Bowl. They deserved to go. So did London.
