For all the Bruce Smiths and Deon Sanders that have came and gone over the years. It is refreshing to say one free agent signing that has most definitely panned out for the Skins. London Fletcher is the epitome of what hard work, determination, and perseverance gets you. Coming out of a Division III college in John Carrol most nobody would have predicted Fletcher would be one of the most dominant defensive players year and year out. Not to mention he is the iron man of football. It is a lot harder to never missed a game as a MLB than QB like Brett Farve and for now Peyton Manning. Middle linebackers take more punishment only second to running backs.
London is an ageless wonder and does not show any drop off in production. He was very impressive in pass coverage considering he is a 5'8 linebacker trying to cover monsters like Jason Witten and Kevin Boss that have 8 and 9 inches on Fletcher respectively. London never tries to do more than he is capable of and does not throw those lazy one arm tackles or shoulders. He understands the fundamentals of tackling like a coach.
That brings me to my next point when London retires and if he is interested in coaching i think he would make an excellent head coach one day.
