Falcons took part in their first NFL draft on November 27, 1965. Their first pick was Tommy Nobis, a linebacker from the University
of Texas. The Falcons appointed Norb Hecker as their first head coach. Hecker was an assistant on the staff of famed Green
Bay Packers' coach, Vince Lombardi. The new Falcons got off to a slow start in their first season, losing their first nine
games. But they regained some ground when they defeated the Giants.
In 1971, the Falcons experienced their first winning
season under the guidance of Coach Norm Van Brocklin. Two years later, they finished out the season with a 9-5 record, which
was a new team high. In the late '70s and '80s, the Falcons continued to see success, landing in the playoffs three times
between 1978 and 1982. In 1980, the Falcons claimed the NFC Western Division title with 12 victories and six Pro Bowl stars.
most successful season in franchise history took place in 1998 when the Falcons were crowned the NFC West winners with a 14-2
record. They went on to the playoffs to pick up the NFC championship and headed for Super Bowl XXXIII.
Georgia Dome premiered in 1992 as the largest cable-supported domed stadium on the planet!
Nearly 10,000 tons of reinforced
steel was used to build the massive Dome - which is more than the steel and iron used for the construction of the Eiffel Tower.
The building itself covers 8.9 acres and features 1.6 million square feet on all seven levels.
Located in downtown Atlanta,
The Dome has played host to Super Bowl XXVIII and XXIV as well as the basketball and gymnastics events for the Olympic Games
held in 1996.

a contest for a nickname for the new team. A school teacher came up with the winning name, writing, "The falcon is proud and
dignified with great courage and fight. It never drops its prey. It is deadly and has a great sporting tradition."
