Fletcher Pro Bowl Bound!

London Fletcher will join his teammate Brian Orakpo in this year's Pro Bowl.

Thanks to the exciting, hard-fought NFC Championship win over the Minnesota Vikings that will send the New Orleans Saints', and their linebacker Jonathan Vilma (also nominated), to the Super Bowl (the first time in 40 years) London Fletcher gets his chance to see some Pro Bowl action.

The stars finally align.

"I'm extremely ecstatic," said Fletcher. "It is a long time coming - 12 years and one overtime later but it was worth the wait. I want to thank my teammates and coaches who helped me get this recognition. I want to also thank the fans and players who voted for me. It will mean a great deal to be out on the field with the best of the best in a different type of environment. I am excited to get to meet the families of the other players, get to visit and talk with the other guys around the league and have an opportunity to play with them in this game."

The Pro Bowl game will be played in South Florida on Sunday, Jan. 31, 2010, at 7:30 p.m.

We already mentioned that Fletcher is a finalist for the 2010 Walter Peyton NFL Man of the Year Award.

The well deserved accolades just keep on coming.

“Again, to be mentioned and considered for this award when you look at some of the past winners and finalists - Kurt Warner, who’s a teammate of mine from St. Louis, I know really well, has done a tremendous amount of things in his community; Jason Taylor, Derrick Brooks, just to name a few; guys who are well respected in this league for what they do on the field but also for what they’ve done in their communities, so to be mentioned amongst these very fine men, and also when you look at the NFL as over 1,800 players, to be considered for this award is very humbling", said Fletcher.

Hey, London, we want to know... Man of the Year Award, or playing in the Pro Bowl. Which one means more?

Punter Proof HD Video Boards At FedEx Field
The screens -- 100-foot-wide, state-of-the-art high definition LED displays -- will triple the size of the two existing end zone video displays. The boards will allow for high-quality, multiple-angle replays, live game action and game graphics, as well as more frequent out-of-town scores. The Redskins also plan to enhance the fans’ game-day experience with all-new game clocks, play clocks, and other in-stadium video displays.

No punter hitting the big screen here. At least they're hoping not.
