Pro Bowl and NFC Player of the Week for the Skins

Posted By Mercedes Green On Dec 30 2010 @ 12:31 pm In Washington Redskins | No Comments

The Washington Redskins will be represented in Hawaii for the 2011 Pro Bowl Game.  CB DeAngelo Hall has been voted for the first time as a Redskin (3rd time overall with 2 stints with the Falcons in 2005 and 2006).  Hall is currently tied for 2nd in the NFL with 6 interceptions.  He also has 89 tackles and 2 forced fumbles.  4 of the 6 interceptions came in a NFL record game against the Chicago Bears.

Along with Hall, Brian Orakpo and Mike Sellers are first alternates and Chris Cooley and London Fletcher as second alternates.  I don’t get how London Fletcher is sitting as a second alternate.  He is currently rated #7 overall in the NFL at Linebacker with 127 tackles, 2.5 sacks, 3 forced fumbles and 1 interception.  He’s also a team captain and the heart of this Skins team.

In other Redskin News, a surprising comeback for Graham Gano.  He has earned the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his part in the win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.  Gano ties the NFL with 3 overtime winning FGs.  This is quite the comeback for Gano from the 2 missed FGs against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers a couple weeks ago.
