From The Mac Attack
Mac Attack 09/04/12: Charlotte resident and Redskins linebacker London Fletcher joined the guys to preview the season, RG3/Cam, and what he was doing in Charlotte today!
As the NFL Season starts Wednesday night, London Fletcher thinks that the replacement referees “are doing the best they can, but you can definitely notice the difference between them and a regular official.” He thinks that the new referees take a long time to make a decision in relation to the speed of a NFL game; plus, they are squabbling about what to call.
When talking about Panthers LB Luke Kuechly, Fletcher think both him and Beason are very impressive players on the field with rookie Kuechly having a great instinct on the field.
His impression of the Redskins’ quarterback Robert Griffin III is a great, charismatic one that has a talented skill set that many quarterbacks don’t have in the league. On Cam Newton’s “Sophomore Slump,” Fletcher believes that it is only happens if the quarterback gets it in his head that there is a slump along with other factors that cause a quarterback to not play as well as the freshman year.
“They have a potential to have one of the better offenses in the league,” Fletcher says when discussing the Carolina Players offensive scheme.
When playing the first game of the season against the New Orleans Saints, Fletcher believes that the team will still play hard against them even in the absence of Sean Peyton not being the head coach this year.
Fletcher is involved in the “Financial Football” program this week at the Wake Forest Business School. The program uses the game and rules of football to teach financial literacy to help kids understand business talk.
