Deion Sanders is not the greatest Atlanta Falcons player of all time

2 of 5

The last time Deion Sanders was a prominent fixture wearing a Falcons uniform was 1993. That was so long ago that the dome “he built” is now a parking lot where fans tailgate. Here are some other trends that have changed since then.

Baggy clothing no longer relevant. The Michigan Fab 5 introduced the world to long baggy basketball shorts in 1991. Players today where their uniform much tighter and smaller than they did in 1993.

Atlanta musics scene. Outkasts debut album “Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik” was a year away from being released. Since then, the greatest hip hop group of all time released six albums, sold more than 50 million albums, won six Grammy’s and have not put out an album in more than a decade.

Clothing. Mom jeans, overalls, body suits and plaid flannel shirts were the style. Today, no one would be caught wearing most of that. If you see someone in overalls, they are more than likely over the age of 50 and are missing the majority of their teeth.

There have been five teams added to the National Football League since Deion left Atlanta. The Panthers, Jaguars, Texans, Ravens and (new) Browns were all added, relocated or brought back.

According to Neilson, Roseann (original), Murphy Brown and Home Improvement were the most watched sitcoms in 1993. Regardless of whether you liked any of those, they were what people watched at the time. NBC sitcom “FRIENDS” was still a year away from airing.
