Redskins' Blache discusses Pro Bowl merits of his players
From The Washington Post:
For the past three seasons, Redskins defensive coordinator Greg Blache has watched his top linebacker wreak havoc every single Sunday, only to be slighted late in the year when Pro Bowl votes are tallied.
He says he's not oblivious to the reasons, and Blache broke his media silence this week to explain why London Fletcher is one of the game's most consistent and dependable defensive players yet hasn't reached a Pro Bowl in 12 seasons.
"The thing that hurts London is that he doesn't act like an idiot every time he makes a tackle," Blache said. "He doesn't bring that attention to himself. He's a football player, not a showman. He takes great pride in his football, and he has great respect for the game. He acts the way a professional is supposed to act, and consequently, it's cost him."
