    Default Fletcher named to all-decade team

    From Redskins Insider:

    Peter King of Sports Illustrated has named his all-decade NFL team and his linebackers are Ray Lewis, Derrick Brooks and ... London Fletcher.

    He also named Mike Vrabel to the team as a LB...Peter King is an idiot. But as they say, even a broke clock is right twice a day.

    Funny that Fletcher is named to the all-decade team and yet can't beg, borrow or steal a pro bowl berth.

    He only has the most tackles in the NFL since 2000.

    Meanwhile, Antonio Pierce was getting the nod the past few years because he played in New York behind a monster defensive line.

    Fletcher has been a more consistent and durable performer than Pierce over his career. The numbers show it.

    And yet he got slighted because he didn't play in NY.

    Only player on that entire list to never be in a Pro Bowl.

    I cannot for a second believe he will get snubbed from the Pro Bowl this year. Fortunately he will not get clipped because of the numbers. While in DC he has had to deal with Pierce in NY, Urlacher in Chicago. Those guys are out this year so we shall see.

    The more things change...the more they stay the same. It's like deja vu all over again.

    He ought to be.

    He ought to be a muli-time pro bowler,

    I'd argue that he should be in the HOF when he retires as well.
    The man is just a beast.

    if he had stayed in St. Louis and the Rams had continued to be successful, he would have been in that position.

    but he went from the crumbling Rams to the ever-rebuilding Bills and the Redskins.

    not many playoff appearances or opportunities to showcase himself after that 2001 Super Bowl.
