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. The rule: minimum of three seasons with the Falcons for coaches, five seasons for players.
Franchise record-holder for most starts and most games played. (Seventh on all-time NFL starts list.)
Five straight Pro Bowls (1980 - 1984).
Two-time All Pro -- more than a decade apart.
1990 NFL Man of the Year.
Second-longest tenured NFL Players Association president, 1989 - 1996.
#78 retired by Falcons. Ring of Honor member.
Three-time Hall of Fame nominee.
In college, went from walkon to two-time All-Big Ten.
Lives in Alpharetta.
Member of Polish-American Hall of Fame along with teammate Steve Bartkowski, making the Falcons' Ring of Honor perhaps the NFL's most West Slavic.
After retirement, did some political thing in Fulton County. Also ran an Atlanta restaurant for 12 years. Currently works for some Georgia transportation nonprofit. Creative Loafing calls him a lobbyist. Arthur Blank is all for lobbying, so we'll leave this whole bullet on this side.
