Falcons Trivia - Friday

102 posts in this topic

We had a little fun with this yesterday, so I thought I would throw out a little trivia for today. PLEASE don't use the internet. It makes it more fun if you don't.

Since the Falcons entered the league in 1966, they have held the 1st overall pick in the draft 4 times. Who were the players selected with the 1st overall pick in the draft? Extra points for the year they were drafted!

Tommy Nobis is also correct...he was the 1st overall pick in 1966, as well as the first overall pick of the franchise.

Tommy Nobis - 1966

Michael Vick - 2001

I'll give you two hints...

It was in the late 1980's, and the reason he is usually remembered is because of his POOR play...

I couldn't remember is Bart was #1 overall or not.

Had Nobis, Bruce, & Vick. Thought Bart was #4 but wasn't positive.

That's right! Audrey Bruce is considered one of the greatest 1st pick busts of all time. He was selected in 1988.

Steve Bartkowski - 1975

Audrey Bruce - 1988

I've got some from my Falcons trivia calendar in January!

1.) Name the two Falcons to catch more than 100 passes in a season.

2.) What is the club record for rushing yards in a single game? (Name the game, player, and number of yards.)

3.) Which three Falcons have earned five consecutive Pro Bowl berths?

4.) Who coached the Falcons to their second postseason victory in the franchise? (Bonus points for what year that victory was.)

Hmmm...

Total WA guess here, but I would say the lowest winning percentage would be either Dallas or San Francisco.
