1985 Atlanta Falcons Team Set

More team sets as I add the 1985 Topps Atlanta Falcons team set to my collection.  The team showcased here went 4-12 in '84.  Williams Andrews, my favorite Falcon of all-time, has a card here but did not play in '84 or '85 due to injury and would only play one more year (1986).  Gerald Riggs took over the rushing duties in a big way gaining over 1400 yards scoring 13 touchdowns and pulling in 42 receptions.  
 Atlanta great Steve Bartkowski shown here as is Stacey Bailey who led the team in receptions and receiving yards.  
We get a Kenny Johnson card but no Billy "White Shoes" Johnson card?  Fail.  Nothing against Kenny who led the '84 team in interceptions.  Greats Mike Kenn and Gerald Riggs show here.  Again action shots are rare in this set but I will say these cards showcase that great red Falcons uni.  The lack of the player's position is also a head scratcher.
