It’s been a season like no other, as the NFL struggled its way through a pandemic that resulted in a limited offseason schedule and no preseason games With this threat lurking in the background all the time. ‘year, regular season games have been postponed to later dates, but at this point none have been canceled
The NFL has, however, decided to cancel this year’s Pro Bowl, which was scheduled to take place in Las Vegas, and will book it in Las Vegas after the 2021 season. Pro Bowl selection has always happened, however, because while the game itself may be meaningless, but being selected is an honor usually bestowed on the best of the best.
In the official vote, kicker Younghoe Koo and defensive tackle Grady Jarrett were the only Falcons selected for the Pro Bowl Thanks in part to the Falcons’ horrific red zone attack, Koo is arguably enjoying the best season ever kicks in franchise history With two games to go, Koo has had 35 field goals, a franchise-high, and with another in 50 field goals, he will have the most field goals achieved away from team history in a single season It’s impressive considering the Falcons botched their first attempt to pass from Falcons legend Matt Bryant, but with Koo kicking the kick as he is, they should be placed in the post for the next decade. This is Koo’s first Pro Bowl selection
Grady Jarrett is officially a Pro Bowler for the second time in his six-year career Jessie “The Hammer” Tuggle’s son has been the Falcons’ top defensive line player year after year and is considered one of the top home defensive linemen in the league In Week 15, Jarrett is second on the squad with four sacks and has the team’s most successful quarterback with 18, generally bringing excellent play to a forward seven who still needs it.
Obviously Calvin Ridley feels like a snub considering the formidable season he’s having, and I’m sure you have other players you would have named yet, given the misery of the season, it’s good to see the recognized Falcons
