The Atlanta Falcons Are 49 Years Old Today

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

A fun fact.

The Atlanta Falcons are nearly 50 years old, having just turned 49 today. It's sort of a trip to realize they've been around that long.

The history of the Falcons hasn't been all—or even mostly—sunshine and bubbles, but it's been a fun ride. Take a moment to acknowledge those fans who have been with this team since the very beginning, because that takes enormous dedication to the team.
