Atlanta is the NFC’s winningest regular-season team over those five years and Snead had a hand in making it happen until he left for the GM job in St. Louis in 2012. It will be a homecoming of sorts for Rams general manager Les Snead when his new club takes on his old club. Snead joined the Falcons’ organization in 1998 as a scout and worked his way up the personnel department depth chart to director of player personnel from 2009 through 2011. Dimitroff is Atlanta’s general manager; Smith the head coach. When Dimitroff and Smith were hired by the Falcons in 2008, the franchise never had experienced even back-to-back winning seasons since its inception in 1966.
