Pro Bowl Voting Update: No Falcons Among Top Vote-Getters

New, comments

The Atlanta Falcons may not be well-represented at the Pro Bowl this season. They may not be represented at all, in fact.

USA TODAY Sports

The Pro Bowl is an unruly beast. Sometimes, players get more recognition because they're on a great team. Other times, undeserving candidates top the ballot because they have familiar names. It's not something to take overly seriously.

For those who care about the results of their votes, you should know that not a single Falcon tops the votes at any position. I'm not overly optimistic that a lot of Falcons are going to the Pro Bowl, and frankly I could see a scenario in which no one makes it. It has been that kind of season, and I'd find it difficult to make the case for anyone besides perhaps Matt Bosher or Desmond Trufant.

The following list comes to us from the NFL itself. Apologies for the formatting.
