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)


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!

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.

Ray, If he had played for any other team, sure fire HOFer. The Falcons really sucked during his career, only two winning seasons....
