Atlanta Falcons: Freddie Falcon named 11th creepiest mascot


A lot of talk this offseason has surrounded the Atlanta Falcons’ defense and its need to improve. But now it’s time to focus just a few minutes on someone who deserves some love – Freddie Falcon, it’s over to you.

Don’t build your hopes up though, Freddie. This is tough love.

Freddie Falcon has ranked 11th on a list of the NFL’s creepiest mascots by sports comedy site Kissing Suzy Kolber. Here’s what they had to say:

"“I’ll be honest, I didn’t know the Falcons had a mascot, or that it would look like someone gave a dead brown bush owl eyes. Freddie looks like you’d stumble upon him in the backroom of a party doing something unspeakable and then try to get you involved.”"

From one Freddie to another, I can see where they are coming from. I mean, those eyes.

But to be fair to poor Freddie, I have absolutely no idea how he is considered more creepy than the Buccaneers’ Captain Fear. The clue is in the name. There is nothing fun about him, although who can blame him considering he’s the mascot for the Bucs?

Then there is the Chiefs’ KC Wolf. I’m assuming the KC stands for ‘Keep Clear’. In my opinion that wolf should be No. 1 on this list, but poor Freddie Falcon is considered creepier than him too.

Thankfully, the list got something right. At No. 7 is Stan Smith from American Dad, err I mean Sir Saint, the odd mascot of the New Orleans Saints.

If you don’t know any of these mascots, go check out the article and see for yourself.

What do you think, Falcons fans? Is Freddie getting a hard time, or is he really that creepy?

I miss football.
