Faulk, who was part of the St. Louis Rams when they were known as “The Greatest Show on Turf," took to his verified Twitter account Friday morning to say it’s premature to call the Falcons by that name.
When you put in work and earn a name like #GSOT and FOOLS just name a group the 2nd edition of with no work. It pains me.... Deeply!

Faulk’s got a point. With Jackson joining quarterback Matt Ryan, receivers Roddy White and Julio Jones and tight end Tony Gonzalez, the Falcons look like they have a chance to be a very special offense -- at least on paper. But we all know that paper and reality don’t always line up together.
Let the Atlanta offense go out and put up big numbers and win a Super Bowl. Then, you can call the Atlanta offense anything you want.
