John Abraham, Matt Ryan Pro Bowl Are Alternates

At least they're only an injury or a vacation in Europe away from the Pro Bowl, right?

The AJC's D. Orlando Ledbetter reports that both John Abraham and Matt Ryan are Pro Bowl alternates. While you could certainly argue that Ryan deserves a spot--and I would grab a fan by the front of their shirt and shake them like a rag doll if it would help to convince them that Abraham belongs there--this is the nature of the Pro Bowl. It's a popularity contest in which great teams and familiar names are rewarded. If Abraham's name was Chamois Buttripper, he'd have been selected for the fifth straight year.

Still, good news for us! Thoughts?
