Falcons Know What They Need To Fix

The Falcons have problems. Even the most loyal fan has to admit the team hasn't scored nearly enough touchdowns this season, and the defense has a disconcerting habit of letting our opponents sneak back into games they should have lost.

Fortunately for us, they're well aware of that:

"That’s one thing that we could do more of down there in the red zone,” wide receiver Roddy White said. “Other than that, we’ve got a lot of plays that work. We just have to execute and stay out of third and long.”

Call me easily impressed if you will, but the fact that the Falcons are addressing their problems when so many teams let them fester can only help us. Make no mistake, the Falcons can survive with a defense that bends and does not break, but they cannot survive if they only score a touchdown or two every single game. I'm not sure what the solution is, but I'm encouraged that they'll have well over a week to figure it out.
