The First Atlanta Falcons Game You Remember

Just a question that doubles as a trip down memory lane this afternoon.

What was the first Falcons game you remember seeing, whether on the tube or attending? What do you remember about it, and how old were you when you saw it?

My earliest personal memory of a Falcons game comes from 1991, when I was a wee lad of just 7. They were playing the Saints in the Wildcard round, a game started by the immortal Chris Miller, who threw for three touchdowns that day, two of them to the equally immortal Michael Haynes. It was a game the Falcons won 27-20, and it forever cemented the idea that the Falcons should beat the Saints for me.

Share yours. gentle fans.
