The Falcons returned to Flowery Branch on Sunday for Day 8 of XFINITY Training Camp, as a number of coaches and owner Arthur Blank addressed the media.

Military Day a Success: The Falcons hosted members from all five branches of the U.S. military, giving veterans and their families a chance to take in XFINITY® Training Camp, meet the team and receive complimentary tickets to the upcoming game against Baltimore on Thursday, Sept. 3. In total, more than 3,900 fans attended the morning practice.

“It gives an opportunity to acknowledge in words the feelings we have about our military,” said Arthur Blank. “For the fans to come out the way they did was magnificent. You can’t say enough about our military guests.”

Front Office/Coaching Dynamic Working Well: In addition to hiring a new coaching staff, Blank recently altered the responsibilities of general manager Thomas Dimitroff and assistant general manager Scott Pioli. Moreover, Dan Quinn has been given the final say on the 53-man roster. Blank is happy with the new dynamic in place and believes it’ll help Atlanta take the next step as an organization.

“I think it’s going great,” he said. “They have a wonderful partnership. They have from the first time we did with (Pioli). They hit it off, and the connection was there. And that’s just built further through the offseason and free agency and the draft. I’m excited about where they are; I’m excited about where the team is.”

Worrilow Constantly Improving: The Falcons asked Paul Worrilow to drop some weight and get faster this offseason and, based on camp performance, has exceeded expectations.

“(Worrilow is) a guy you’d think would be maxed out because he doesn’t leave a stone unturned, but he’s found a way to get better every day here, which is unique for a guy like him” said linebackers coach Jeff Ulbrich. “He will do whatever you say. He’s very trusting; he’s very hard-working.”

Robiskie Discusses Hester: Prior to the start of camp, Devin Hester said he was unsure what his part would be in the new offense. The plan for him is still unclear — however, Terry Robiskie delivered a clear message for the gifted return specialist.

“Tell Devin Hester his role is to win the game,” the wide receivers coach said. “That’s all. Tell him I said so.”

Injury Update: A minor toe injury sidelined Hester, but he’s expected to return on Monday or Tuesday. Devonta Freeman (hamstring), Tevin Coleman (hamstring), Cliff Matthews (ankle) and Brooks Reed (hip/groin) were held out, as well. Lamar Holmes remains on the PUP list with a broken foot.

"Them pretty m***********s ain't gonna get me fired!"

Weapons like Hester have to be used specially and sparingly. He's not fit for the cookie cutter WR role, so Robiskie isn't gonna come out and say he will be our "Percy Harvin" when in reality he's basically our version of him mashed up with Cordarelle Patterson (if Harvin was still a Viking this would be more accurate, which benefits us as a 2-for-1 deal). Hester and Tone are freaks of nature athletes with a drive and ability to get TD's and rip off huge yards. I'm excited to see how Shanahan is going to use them this year, and just the element of having great starting position on offense still makes me giggle like a school girl.

Comment was made to a guy that didn't know Ulbrich was the LB coach even though Ulbrich was hired 3 or 4 months ago.

I'm irrational? You're the one that acts like it's a ******* sin that I didn't know who in the heIl the linebackers coach of the Atlanta Falcons is. Why you're at it why don't you tell me the name of the intern that gets Dan Quinn his morning coffee since it's a requirement to know every person's name associated with the Atlanta Falcons and if you don't some poster has to come and make some smartass ******* comments about it.

Oh, look.. another pissy rant. Color me surprised. If you care to look back it was G-Dawg that suggested you must have been sleeping these last few months because there was discussion on the boards about this hiring when it happened months ago. My next post was directed at another poster who didn't realize he was quoting the person who was the butt of the joke (you). Then you came in all hostile, a trend that you're continuing with this post as if it's someone else's fault you didn't know something. Maybe the next time you should just google it, save yourself the embarrassment of moments like this.

Big T needs to sit down.

Really? That's news to me because I don't post a whole lot in TATF during the offseason. I got hostile because you're being a total ******* for absolutely no reason. Of course that's nothing new for you. There was no need for none of this crap just because I didn't know that.
