Default RIP: Tommy Nobis

Atlanta's first Falcon; No. 1 overall pick in 1966.

He will be missed!


Something I did not know:

Nobis was an iron man, playing (and starting) on both defense and offense for his entire college career (at Texas - when Texas was REALLY TEXAS)

WOW!

As a Falcon rookie, he had 294 combined tackles...let me say that again...294 combined tackles. WOWER!!!

5-time Pro Bowl in an eleven year career, named to the all decade team...yet he's not in the Hall-of-Fame!

MY BIG CONCERNS ABOUT AMERICA:

Internally- We spend too much time assuring our rights without learning the responsibilities that should accompany them.
Externally - No matter how much we claim to take the higher moral ground, we have neither respected nor attempted to understand other cultures.
