No Falcons headed to Hawaii

December 18th, 2007 Comments off

No Falcon players were named to the 2008 Pro Bowl rosters. It is the first time since the 2000 season that no Falcon was named to the NFC’s Pro Bowl roster. Although it is still possible that some Falcon players will be named as alternates at a later date and will be able to travel to Hawaii as replacements for some players who sit out the all-star game due to injuries or for other reasons.
