Falcons Number 12

Chris Chandler led the Falcons to their only Super Bowl, so naturally he is the greatest number 12 in Falcons history.

Chris Miller was a talented quarterback whose career was hampered by repeated concussions. Has he played after the turn of the century he would've retired much earlier.
At the time Nick Mike-Mayer was the most successful kicker in Falcons history. Michael Jenkins was an effective receiver who fell victim to the salary cap. Others: George Roberts. Kevin Cone. Luke McCown. Chris Renfree.

NFL: Tom Brady. Roger Staubach. Bob Greise. Joe Willie Namath. MVP John Brodie. Terry Bradshaw. USFL legend Jim Kelly made the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Tech: Point guard Kenny Anderson. Gary Lanier ran the wishbone to perfection. Stan Gann. Jack Williams. Running back Dorsey Levens.

UGA: All-American Zeke Bratkowski. Tavarres King. Cotton Bowl hero John Lastinger. Mike Cavan. Red Leathers.

Braves: twelve was never a good number for the Bravos. The number just looks odd on the back. Young Dusty Baker. Sliding Sid Bream. Tom Paciorek. Eddie Perez has worn the number for the longest time, as a player and coach.

NBA: John Stockton.
