100 Things Falcons Fans
Should Know & Do Before They Die
By Ray Glier & Knox Bardeen

 

Most Falcons fans have attended games at the Georgia Dome, seen highlights of a young Deion Sanders, and lived through the team's improbable run to Super Bowl XXXIII. But only real fans know how the origins of the famous Freddie Falcon mascot, the best food to grab at a game, and which famous quarterback the Falcons drafted in 1991 and quietly traded a year later.

 

100 Things Falcons Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die by Ray Glier and Knox Bardeen reveals the most critical moments and important facts about past and present players, coaches, and teams that are part of the storied history that is Falcons football. Scattered throughout the pages, you'll find pep talks, records, and Falcons lore to test your knowledge, including:

 

  • The story of the Gritz Blitz - possibly the best defense in NFL history
  • The incredible and tragically short career of RB William Andrews
  • The unique stories of two-sport stars Deion Sanders and Brian Jordan 
  • The NFL record 40,202 no-shows to a Falcons game and the reasons behind it

 

Whether you're a die-hard fan from the days of Leeman Bennett and Steve Bartkowski or a new supporter of Mike Smith and Matt Ryan, this book contains everything Falcons fans should know, see and do in their lifetime. If you bleed red, black and silver, then 100 Things Falcons Fans is for you. It offers the chance to be certain you are knowledgeable about the most important facts about the team, the traditions, and what being a Falcons fan is all about.
