Its a FALCON thing...
"Lets say its me and you are playing the same position, and I’m the older guy and you’ve got talent. I’m going to teach you what I know to try and beat me out. I want you to take my position, because if you take it, we will be a better team. If not, when I leave, you’ll be smart enough to get it done. That’s what “A Falcon Thing” means. No matter what, I want the best players on the field."
