Birdland — Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff and head coach Mike Smith will be busy on Friday.

They won’t be breaking down film on the 2011 draft prospects.

No, they won’t be gasing up Arthur Blank’s jet and flying off on a big scouting trip to Montana to find the next Kroy Biermann or Shann Schillinger.

Dimitroff and Smith will have a rake in their hands sprucing up the landscape at the Walters Boys and Girls club in Gainesville or a paint brush helping school children at the Challenge Child in Gainesville paint the exterior and interior

of their school.

It’s “All Associates Community Day” on Friday for the entire organization of Arthur Blank’s businesses from the Falcons and Family Foundation Office.

Employees from the Atlanta Falcons, AMB Group, Atlanta Falcons Physical Therapy Centers, PGA Tour Super Stores and the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation will go out in the community together as one organization to try to make a difference.

The key word is “All” associates. From Blank and his  wife Stephanie Blank to Rich McKay and all of Reggie Roberts‘ communications department crew will be working on Friday.

This is the second year for the event. Last year, Blank’s associates partnered with Park Pride and completed projects at Cleopas Johnson Park , Washington Park, and Vine City park in Atlanta.

Way to go Arthur Blank……giving back to the community.

I sure don’t remember the former owners (the infamous Smith Family – “Bubba” Rankin Sr. and “Bubba” Rankin Jr.) ever doing anything like this in the community…..”I’m just saying…..”

The Falcons still need a defensive end. They used their first-round pick on a linebacker, Sean Weatherspoon, because they believed he was the best available player for their spot (19th). Had Michigan’s Brandon Graham not gone to Philadelphia at No. 13, the Falcons probably would have chosen him. They are left to continue to lean on veteran John Abraham and hope that some younger players at the position can develop and contribute.

This is great, I love the community spirit that the Atlanta Falcons are building. That’s also why I love the new Falcons Nation Charity Organization (FNCO) as well. This is an organization who is working with the Falcons to promote fan involvement in charitable events that are directly related to charities that players, staff, and former players support. The FNCO has an event that is open to everyone on May 11th called Lunch with Legends. For only $40, this luncheon will feature former Falcons Jessie Tuggle, Jeff Van Note, and Buddy Curry and raise money for the Kids and Pros (www.kidsandpros.com) organization founded by Buddy Curry to support youth in Georgia communities. It’s a great opportunity for Falcon fans to get involved and also meet these Falcons greats. In addition, there will be a silent auction at the luncheon, some of the items for bid: A Gameday experience with Freddie Falcon, you and a guest will be Freddie’s special guests for a home game this year, and this will include sideline passes for the game. A round of golf (you and 2 guests) with either Buddy Curry or Jessie Tuggle. Autographed items from current Falcon players will be available for auction as well as other items. For more information, see http://www.falconnationcharities.org/lunchwithlegends.html

That seems like an accurate assessment to me. This seems to be the make-or-break seaon for our DE’s up and down the roster. There may be somebody on our radar when teams start culling their rosters heading into camp, or a RFA with a lower tender. If we don’t do either of those things, an early rd DE would make alot of sense–as would a franchise LT if one was there and Baker keeps getting worn down…

I agree my concern is that TD seems reluctant to add veterans: a la Alex Brown to the mix.
