Redskins Snubbed In Pro Bowl Selections

The rosters for the NFL Pro Bowl in January were announced Tuesday, and not a single member of the 5-10 Washington Redskins made the cut.

The Pro Bowl, which will be held this year at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, is an all-star game intended to celebrate the best players in the sport in a given year. Players are voted in based on the selections made by coaches, players and fans, in equal part.

Fans had hoped that Redskins linebacker London Fletcher would have been included, as the 36-year-old linebacker currently leads the league with 163 tackles.

Fletcher himself expressed disappointment on his Twitter page, saying, "Don't know if I should be upset or laugh. Obviously it doesn't matter what [you] do on the field!"

The Baltimore Ravens, the other area team, fared much better in voting with seven players represented. Running back Ray Rice, fullback Vonta Leach, guard Marshal Yanda, defensive tackle Haloti Ngata, linebackers Terrell Suggs and Ray Lewis, and free safety Ed Reed madet he squad for the AFC.
