Redskins Trio Dominates Pro Bowl, D-Hall named MVP


DeAngelo Hall once again proved his reputation as a play maker, being named the 2011 Pro Bowl MVP in Hawaii, accounting for six TKL, one INT, one FF, and one TD all in the first half.  This helped build the NFC's insurmountable lead of 28-0.  D-Hall was also awarded a brand new Cadillac SUV for his efforts.  

"I was just about to buy another SUV," the cornerback said, "so to come out here and grab one for free, I like that."

Although they were brought in as alternates, LB's London Fletcher and Brian Orakpo more than proved their worth in this turnover-heavy game, leading to an eventual 55-41 romping by the NFC.

More stats and info after the jump...

Hall made his presence felt on the last play of the first quarter, picking off a deep throw by quarterback Philip Rivers. He returned the ball 29 yards to help set up an NFC touchdown.  And in the second quarter, Hall stripped wide receiver Wes Welker, scooped it up and flew 34 yards down the sideline for a touchdown reminiscent of the game-winner in Week One against Dallas.  This put the NFC up a laughable 28-0, still with over four minutes to go in the first half.  

Brian Orakpo showed he deserved his second Pro Bowl appearance in two years, leading the NFC in tackles with seven.  The second-year pro flew to the ball on every down played, adding to the case that although this year's Skins Defense was ranked 31st in the league,  that we have solid play makers to build on.

London Fletcher, also made his second Pro Bowl appearance, opening the game as a reserve for the NFC.  In the first quarter, Fletch picked off Philip Rivers and returned the ball 14 yards setting up an NFC touchdown.  Rivers did not have any luck throwing in the direction of Redskins defenders, to say the least.  Fletcher also added six tackles.

D-Hall, Rak, and Fletch finished 1st-2nd-3rd in tackles to lead the NFC defense.  Hall is the first Redskin to win Pro Bowl MVP since Joe Theismann in 1984 in a similar NFC-dominated game.

Now I just have one question...
