    Dimitroff Leaves Pats; Becomes Falcons' GM

    Director of college scouting. Ace evaluator.
    Per Reiss blog.

    Re: OT- Falcons have hired Patriots director of college scouting

    Worse news for Dimitroff. He got the job nobody worth hiring wanted. Maybe he felt blocked here. McKay wants to remain in control of the franchise and it's owner from the executive suite, and looks like he found his mark. Although not succeeding in Atlanta with one hand tied behind your back will probably not scar you for life in the NFL. If they at least draft well now he will get kudos, and if they don't McKay will be blamed (and probably rightly)...

    True, better than going to the Jets, or Miami.

    Re: OT- Falcons have hired Patriots director of college scouting

    eh.

    Has their college scouting been particularly impressive the past two or three seasons?

    They have one player on the roster from the 2007 draft of the nine drafted players.
    The 2006 draft featured Maroney and Chad Jackson in the top two rounds - neither has come close to exceeding expectations.

    Not too many gems in the later rounds lately either.

    I'm fine with a new leader here.

    Dimitroff

    Hey, I'm a falcons fan, and I'm just wondering what you all thought of him.

    And congrats on the 16-0

    Re: Dimitroff

    Don't really know him...BUT I WOULD RATHER LOSE HIM THAN PIOLI or BB. End of story. Good luck to him, and I hope that he can put your team on the right track. :)

    Let's just hope they hire a coach who doesn't want to play Patriots-like schemes.

    It all depends on if the owner will allow him to do his job in peace.

    I think this is a good move by Arthur Blank, I'm hoping that dimitroff can turn our franchise around.

    Re: Thomas Dimitroff To Be Named Falcons GM

    You're not kidding. If it were McDonalds, he'd be going from Shift Supervisor in a restaurant to VP of US Operations at the Corporate Office.

    Re: OT- Falcons have hired Patriots director of college scouting

    As long as it's not one of the Big 3, I'm fine. Belichick, Pioli and Brady are the keys. They stay, we win. Simple as that.

    It's not nearly that bad.
    It's not like the Patriots lost Pioli.
