2011 Pro Bowl: Falcons Send Seven But Is Anyone Snubbed?

The 2010 Atlanta Falcons is turning out to be pretty special as they're 12-3 on the year, close to wrapping up the top seed in the NFC and now comes news that they will send seven players to the 2011 Pro Bowl. That numbers leads the NFL ahead of the New England Patriots who have six players in.

Your Falcons Pro Bowlers: Matt Ryan, Tony Gonzalez, Michael Turner, Ovie Mughelli, Roddy White, John Abraham and Eric Weems. All very deserving players on the 12-3 Falcons. But are they any snubs? SB Nation's The Falcoholic makes the case for a couple.

Snubs? I think you could make a very reasonable argument for including Brent Grimes, William Moore and Curtis Lofton, as well as Todd McClure. I am surprised Grimes couldn't garner enough votes with his play and the media attention he's received, but we know how good he is. That's gotta count for something.

Now you're just getting greedy Falcons fans. If you're a Falcons fan -- and it must feel good to be one this morning -- hop on over to The Falcoholic to see what fans are saying about leading the NFL in Pro Bowl players.
