Big fan of Atlanta football? Then check out this list of Atlanta Falcons quarterbacks with photos! It includes every starting quarterback from throughout Atlanta Falcons history, including current quarterbacks and past ones. This roster contains many American football greats, players in the game with the highest ratings in the NFL. The QB is the leader of the offensive team, the one who often calls the plays. Although most teams use an offensive coordinator now, QBs still need to know the intricacies of the rules for trick plays and tactics. Vigorous training is a must-- and don't forget that a quarterback is only as good as his receivers.

Featuring 2018-2019 Atlanta Falcons and some of the greatest NFL quarterbacks of all time, the best Falcons QBs include Matt Ryan, Chris Chandler, Michael Vick, and Steve Bartkowski, among other greats.

Who are the best quarterbacks in Atlanta Falcons history? They're on this comprehensive list, along with all of the other sports stars who have had the honor of being the arm behind this beloved Georgia team. Here is every athlete who's ever held the illustrious position of Atlanta Falcons quarterback.
