The Scale of Falconliness, Wide Receiver Week: Terance Mathis

New, comments

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.

I have no good reason for declaring this week Wide Receiver Week. Life's like that sometimes.

Terance Mathis, WR (1994 - 2001)
