I wanted to call your attention to this Yahoo! Sports post by Hobson Lopes, a fan contributor for the network. I do so because his take on the three most important players in Atlanta history is an interesting one.
To answer your first question right off the bat, I don't agree with the list. Here's who he had:
1. Deion Sanders
2. Keith Brooking
3. Steve Bartkowski
I'll buy Sanders, but I have a harder time with Bartkowski and especially Brooking. You can make a very reasonable argument for Bart, who was a very good quarterback playing on a sub-par team, but what about Tommy Nobis, Claude Humphrey, Mike Kenn, Jamal Anderson, et al? I think they belong in the conversation.
So let's have that conversation right now. Do you agree with Lopes, or would you choose three other players when you went to make your own list? Sound off!
