Sometimes you've got to let old men just be old men and let them have their way. For the Atlanta Falcons, seeing John Abraham, Todd McClure and Tony Gonzalez on the injury report has become customary for the organization. There's nothing to question about seeing them on the list, because you know when the ball is snapped you'll see all three line up in their respective positions.
