Falcons Sending Three to Pro Bowl

Three Atlanta Falcons have been voted to the Pro Bowl: quarterback Matt Ryan, tight end Tony Gonzalez, and wide receiver Julio Jones.

Ryan has posted career numbers in yards, touchdowns, and passer rating thus far. He has thrown for 4,481 yards, 31 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions on 394 of 571 (69.0 percent) passing.

The 36-year-old Gonzalez has played at a high level despite his age. He has 88 receptions for 889 yards and 8 touchdowns.

Jones is building upon a good rookie campaign with a great sophomore showing. The second-year receiver has totaled 76 receptions, 1,142 yards, and 10 touchdowns. All of Jones’ numbers are up from last year.

When it comes to snubs, you have to look at John Abraham, Thomas DeCoud, and Roddy White. Abraham has 10 sacks and six forced fumbles; DeCoud has six interceptions on the year and has been one of the best safeties in the league; White has 87 catches for 1,309 yards and seven touchdowns. How those three weren’t selected to the Pro Bowl is baffling.
