Falcons are a Model Franchise for the First Time ... Ever

Fact: the Falcons' front office is more boss than Dave in a denim tuxedo

Kevin C. Cox

Most of you didn't join the Falcons fanwagon post-Michael Vick. Some of you did, but most of you experienced at least part of the infamous dark years. Yes, the dark years, those years which shall not be mentioned. Heck, some of you experienced forty plus years of them. Now, as franchises go, the Falcons are top notch. There's only one big reason that's true: the front office.

Two of [Thomas Dimitroff's] former directors of player personnel — Les Snead, St. Louis' general manager, and David Caldwell, the general manager at Jacksonville — now run their own clubs and both appear to be steering their franchises in the right direction. Two recent columns by Don Banks of Sports Illustrated and Jason La Canfora from CBS Sports ranked the front offices in the NFL and Dimitroff and his current staff is high on those lists.

Nothing to see here, just accolades en masse for the Falcons' front office. Huzzah!
