Curtis Lofton, Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez were asked about the Pro Bowl voting Wednesday. They are the three Falcons players widely viewed as having a shot at the game.
It snaps a 10-year streak of Pro Bowl appearances for Gonzalez. It would have been the second-straight trip for White and the first for Lofton, who spent a large portion of the season leading the NFL in tackles.
But, as a good leader often does, Lofton found the words to put it all in perspective…
“My season speaks for itself,” he said. “Just because you don’t go to the Pro Bowl doesn’t mean you didn’t have a good season.”
Gonzalez and White said the snub gives them extra motivation to play hard Sunday in the season finale in Tampa. If Lofton feels the same way, we may see a few defensive fireworks.
