The Greatest Atlanta Falcons Team Ever

We have spent weeks voting, debating and discussing our all-time Falcons team. At last, we have completed the roster.

I want to thank everybody for keeping up with this series. I had a ton of fun putting this together, and seeing who you all selected turned out to be endlessly fascinating. While an all-time Steelers or Packers team would probably be able to take on our beloved Falcons' all-time squad, I think our guys stack up surprisingly well against most franchises' greatest ever. That's a pleasant surprise.

If you'll join me over the jump, I'll post the greatest team in history, according to your votes. I'll follow that with the all-time team I would have chosen had I been the sole power here, just for discussion's sake. Share your greatest Falcons lineups ever in the comments, and discuss this one.
