It’s Pro Bowl day, so soon after the Senior Bowl. While the latter is aimed at helping teams discover future stars, the former is aimed at recognizing them.

This time out, the Falcons will have two players in the actual game. Julio Jones declined to play this time out, but Austin Hooper and Grady Jarrett will be in it, and both are mighty deserving choices. With any luck, we’ll get to see Hooper reel in a touchdown, as he did several times this year, and see Jarrett take down a quarterback, as he did with so efficiently in 2019.

The rest is gravy, as these games are rarely more than entertaining exhibitions, but at the very least we can hope it’ll be a lively one. Go Falcons, as it’s the last we’ll see any of them in game action until August.
