A Look At The Falcons Red Zone Performance: Week 14

This post is sponsored by Comcast and their NFL RedZone channel.  If you're looking to check out red zone action as it happens,  then you need Comcast's NFL RedZone. Because Comcast loves you, even if your family doesn't.

So...about the Saints.

As you might've guessed by now, the Falcons generally capitalized on their red zone chances against the mighty Nawlins Aints, like they always do. The team only got inside the 20 a grand total of three times, and they twice settled for field goals and got a touchdown after Jason Snelling was able to punch it in. You'd prefer we weren't booting field goals at that point, but it could've been worse.

As usual, the Falcons' issues run much deeper than that. It's about scoring from anywhere on the field or at least getting within striking distance more than three times, and that's something the team just can't seem to figure out how to do. It's frustrating, but ultimately not something we can really change this year.

I'll pose this question to all of you: Do you think having Harry Douglas available next season will help to open things up, whether it be from the 50 or the 20? I have to think having that third quality option (Jenkins only counts 1/3rd of the time) would be a big boost.
