Happy Tuesday, Falcoholics! How’s your January going? Have you lost 15 pounds and gotten your lives together? No sweat if the answer is “no.” Grab an ice-cold adult beverage and find an adirondack to sit on. Nobody’s perfect, and you deserve a breather.

Hoop to the Pro Bowl

The 49ers are headed to the Super Bowl, which means George Kittle can’t play in the Pro Bowl. That’s good news for Falcons fans because Austin Hooper is replacing him. This is Hoop’s second trip to the Pro Bowl in 2 years. There’s a real possibility Hoop signs elsewhere once free agency kicks off, so it’ll be nice to see him represent the Falcons, even if it’s for the last time. Congrats, Hoop. You deserve this.

Writing on the wall

The Kyle Shanahan-led 49ers will look to knock off Pat Mahomes and company in Miami in a couple weeks. Interesting the fans basically predicted this Super Bowl matchup. Y’all are some smart cookies. (For the most part.)

Atlanta to SF pipeline

Speaking of the Super Bowl, there are several former Falcons represented in this years matchup. We wish all those guys the best in Miami. And Kyle, remember, run the ball.
