Young Dimitroff's challenge: Attracting free agents, managing the salary cap and developing 'his' players for the long term..


Recommended Posts

Will the eventual departure (maybe this year,maybe next year) of the over-rated, undermining former Atlanta GM Rich McKay hurt current GM Tom Dimitroff in terms of contract negotiations with future free agents? Will his own draft picks be able to become true franchise players? Despite the late progress of five year veteran Roddy White who is approaching a contract year or the sprinkling of free agent veterans such as an aging Grady Jackson, an aging Lawyer Milloy, an aging and injury prone John Abraham. At 34, Brooking's career is coming to an abrupt end. So there is a potential total reconstruction (at least on defense) of the Falcons team that may be coming sooner than people think and pose as a potential roadblock for any long-term success for the Falcons. And young Tom Dimitroff may face the prospect of not having Rich McKay looking over his shoulder in drawing up contracts and needy advice over the salary cap.

DImitroff doesn't need the distraction of playing games with Vick's contract and status in 2009. If he falls into the 'trap' of doing that, it may hurt him in future negotiations with future free agents. Young Tom needs to quickly settle that situation with a trade or cut Vick outright. There will be no Herschel Walker mega-deal recarnation in which he gets a lot of picks. He can try, but it will be risky..

Will the eventual departure (maybe this year,maybe next year) of the over-rated, undermining former Atlanta QB Michael Vick hurt current GM Tom Dimitroff in terms of contract negotiations with future free agents? It is very doubtful since most people with an I.Q. higher than their shoe size realize that it was Vick's own off field actions that led to his self-imposed exclusion from the National Football League.

All of Vick's troubles came before the rising star Thomas Dimitroff ever came to Atlanta so that entire mess does not effect Dimitroff's planning for the continually rebuilding of the Falcons or his lofty status in the eyes of most knowledgeable NFL observers.

Atlanta is now a very desirable place for potential free agents to land. Owner Arthur Blank isn't stingy with the pocketbook and seems to have turned the reins of control over to two solid football minds in Dimitroff and Head Coach Mike Smith. Smith has struck the perfect balance already with his roster, alternating between fatherly mentor and stern taskmaster.....Player's coach? Yes, but only if that player realizes and accepts his own role as a dedicated and mature professional football player.

In summation, Michael Vick and all of the poisonous baggage associated with him is but an unpleasant stop in the Falcons rearview mirror. Dimitroff has a plan, a plan doesn't include or concern himself with the embattled former quarterback.

Fixed it for you dumba**.

Maybe if you wrote like this people wouldn't consider you to be such a troll *******.

Ryan-2 is V-75.. Everyone knows that....He is a clearly agenda-driven troll who is so pathetic that he creates multiple accounts to continue his agenda driven posting....He has been banned multiple times and even creates these multiple accounts so that he can bump and agree with his own posts. Even though he has been discovered doing this on several occasions he persists in fronting this unintentionally hilarious charade.

There are no credible posters who agree with 75..

Dimtroff's GM skills will continue to flower and grow as he turns his attention to the Falcons defense this offseason.

Fixed it again for you.

This is easy.

You suck.
