Five NFC South players ready to pounce

Harry Douglas, wide receiver, Atlanta Falcons. We’re getting back to the true formula for a comeback player here. Douglas missed all of last season after suffering an injury early in the preseason.

I still don’t think a lot of people realize how significant this injury was to the Falcons. They had huge plans for Douglas in his second season. He was going to be the third receiver in this offense. The Falcons were planning on using him in the slot and bringing a whole new dynamic to their offense.

The injury prevented that and really kept Atlanta’s offense from ever hitting its stride last season. But Douglas should be back at full strength and that alone could change the complexion of an offense that’s loaded just about everywhere else.

Tight end Tony Gonzalez and wide receiver Roddy White already are very good and wide receiver Michael Jenkins is dependable. Throw Douglas’ speed into the slot and Gonzalez, White and Jenkins immediately become even better. Quarterback Matt Ryan might even become great.

There is the speed we lacked so much. Him and Norwood. We need those playmakers on the field for our offense to get clicking because there is no way they can defend Tony G, Roddy White, Harry Douglas, Michael Jenkins while watching out for Ovie and Turner...

This is gonna be an exciting season.

I am as excited as anybody about Harry coming back, but the only way the Falcons could make things any easier for Jenkins is if the other team didn't cover him at all. With Teams focusing on the run whil trying to also account for a Pro Bowl Reciever and a HOF Tight End, Jenkins already faces one on one coverage against generally the worst cover corner on the field every play of his life. The notion that HD on the field is going to make Jankins any more potent seems unlikely.

HD is going to be the "X-Factor" he was supposed to be last season. There's something special building in Flowery Branch.

W E L L S A I D!!!!!

How 'bout we nick-name our offense "The X-factors" (similar to "the X-files") and our defense "The Nasty Boys"!! :)
