We have our first Redskin appearing in NFL Network’s “Top 100 players of 2012” list. It’s London Fletcher at No. 87.
If the list really meant much of anything, we might launch into a full-blown post about how there aren’t 86 better players in the NFL than Fletcher, how he is constantly underrated and overlooked, and so on. But the fact is that the list, which is drawn up using the vague criteria of “current players ranking their peers” (How many voted? Could the vote on players on their own team? Do they have to have played against that player?) is devoid of any significance makes it a wise decision to save outrage for things that matter.
The video is pretty good, although you would think that they could have found a player currently on the team’s roster to sing Fletcher’s praises instead of LaRon Landry.
If any more Redskins make the list we’ll be sure to greet the news with the appropriate yawn.
