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.
Jerry Glanville, Secondary Coach (1977 - 1978), Defensive Coordinator (1979 - 1982), Head Coach (1990 - 1993)
- Not a good evaluator of quarterbacks, to say the least. Lobbied for Chris Miller over Brett Favre, forcing GM Ken Herock to eventually trade the future eighteen-time MVP. According to hilarious Atlanta legends we tell to make ourselves feel better, this saved the hard-drinking Favre's career, since nobody drinks beer in Wisconsin.
- Not a good head coach, to say the least. Only had one winning season as a Falcons head coach. Finished with a decidedly losing record, 27-37.
- Coached for three other NFL teams and four college teams for 22 seasons.
Bad strategy, but epitaph-worthy for its encapsulation of the Glanville mystique: "I don't care if we gain a yard; we're going to knock somebody down."
- To this day, a pants-waving lunatic who still speaks in third-person despite being fired by Portland State. There has always been something wrong with this man.
