Meet Your 1991-2000 All-Decade Falcons starting lineup

Meet a team with a strong ground game and a great defense.

Falcons v Cardinals X

Based on your votes and spirited debate, we’ve unearthed the best possible Falcons lineup for the 1991-2000 run, which saw a couple of quality playoff teams and the legendary 1998 Super Bowl squad play. As you’d expect, there’s some terrific players on this final list.

The offense gives you a passable quarterback, two great receivers, a dominant running back in his prime, and a very good offensive line, as well as perhaps the worst starting tight end on any of these teams (no offense, O.J.). The defense, meanwhile, boasts a Hall of Fame cornerback, perhaps the best safety in team history, and a potent front seven. This is a very good squad, I think.

Next up, the 1981-1990 run, which will give this team arguably its most dominant offensive line ever. Check back tomorrow for the first round of nominations!
