The Scale of Falconliness, Receiver Week: Alge Crumpler

Git Crump is not above dancing for votes.

Who's the ultimate Falcon? And who's the ultimate anti-Falcon? That's what we're going to find out with our summer project: the Scale of Falconliness. We'll rate former Falcons on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the most Falconly.

Every year, one of the most popular days of Receiver Week is Tight End Tuesday. 

The big question: was Crump really all that great, or was he just lucky to be a part of the universe's most tight end-friendly offense? The bigger question: what does that have to do with his Falconliness?

Alge Crumper, TE (2001 - 2007)

Falconly Unfalconly
  • Four-time Pro Bowler, all as a Falcon.
  • Seven years in Atlanta.
  • Team's leading receiver (yardage) for three straight years -- no other Falcons tight end has done this more than once.
  • Fourth on franchise receptions list (until around 1:30 P.M., September 12 -- he's one catch ahead of Roddy). Fourth in receiving touchdowns.
  • Seventh among all Falcons in receiving yards, and second among all Falcons tight ends.
  • Blocked for three straight league-leading rushing attacks.
  • Prone to end zone and/or first down dancing; looks like Killer Mike.
  • ESPN the magazine once published an entire story, with a front cover blurb, about the width and football utility of the Crump Rump. That's how big his butt was/is.
  • I'd like to put the eye black incident on this side...
  • Two years with the Titans.
  • Currently on the Patriots roster.
  • Kind of dropsy, especially considering how open he always was due to the Vick-Dunn Show. 
  • One national NFL show had a very brief running joke based around using his name in vain whenever somebody screwed up something really, really easy. (In context: last year, Michael Jenkins and Jason Elam both had a couple Alge Crumplers.)
  • ...but I don't think you guys would agree.
