The Falcons were hoping for more explosive plays out of the WRs in 2011, but it hasn’t happened yet.  Roddy White is leading the way out of this bunch with 39 grabs for 425 yards (10.9 avg) with 3 TD grabs.  He is still an excellent possession receiver, but he doesn’t get down the field a whole lot.  Rookie Julio Jones was supposed to be the deep threat of the Falcons.  He has caught 25 passes for 358 yards (14.3 avg) so far this year and he has yet to catch at TD pass.  Harry Douglas has caught 17 passes for 199 yards (11.7 avg) this year as the Falcons continue to wait for him to step up.  Eric Weems has been so busy on special teams that the Falcons aren’t using him on offense as the has only caught 1 pass for 4 yards.  If the Falcons want to get back to the playoffs in 2011, these guys need to step up.
