He didn't play here but did win a game as head Coach previous to his induction and certainly contributed to the Falcons as an assistant coach.

And since the Mike Smith hiring, Emmitt was promoted to Assistant Head Coach before his HOF induction. Emmitt is still contributing to this team.

I think Emmitt should be inducted into the Falcon Ring of Honor in the upcoming season.

ET is the first Falcon coach or player (so far) to be in the NFL HOF.

If he should be then so should Eric Dickerson. Emmitt is in based on his playing, not his coaching. But congrats to him.

Short answer. No.

General info.

Dan Reeves is in the HOF as a Cowboy

Norm Van Brocklin is in as an Eagle

Art Shell is in as a Raider

Eric Dickerson is in as a Ram

Emmit wasn't the first HOF'er to have Falcon connections.
