Trivia time! Here’s one where the answer almost surely won’t spring to mind the first time you hear it.
The question today concerns the most fumbles in a single season for the Falcons, which as you’d expect are in the double digits. The player in question here was no slouch, but he was awfully careless with the football this particular season, though it did not wind up screwing over the Falcons as badly as you’d expect. He edged out the next closest competitor by three fumbles, and finished that year with 16 total.
It’s safe to say that fumbling a whole hell of a lot in a single season doesn’t diminish one’s standing with the team, given that both this player and Matt Ryan are in the team’s top five for worst fumbling seasons. I’m not going to give you any further clues, but I’m sure you’ve been around long enough and think hard enough, you’ll arrive at the right choice.
