Linebacker Daryl Washington was only named an alternate for the Pro Bowl, behind 49ers inside ‘backers Patrick Willis and NaVorro Bowman. But at least one person had Washington as the best inside linebacker in the NFC. That would be Sports Illustrated’s Peter King, who named Washington — along with Pittsburgh’s Lawrence Timmons — as one of his all-NFL picks this season. King only has a list without explanation; He says that is coming in his Tuesday column and I am sure he will hear from someone complaining about, for instance, the absence of either Willis or Bowman (or both.)
But clearly, Washington had a huge season, even if he wasn’t able to nab that 10th sack when it was all said and done.
