Code Red Zone

There were so many positives from the Saints' convincing win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers yesterday, especially when it comes to their offense. Yet they weren't perfect.

Still plaguing the Saints offense, even amidst a dominating performance like yesterday's, is an inability to put up points in the red zone. Against the Buccaneers the Saints were 2/4, or 50%, from within twenty yards which equals their season high so far. That may not sound too bad but to put that in perspective, the Saints would often convert more than half their red zone opportunities and only converted less than 50% in four games last year.

So what gives with their struggles near the end zone this season? Many people blame the absence of Reggie Bush and Pierre Thomas but the team struggled even with them. Is it less important now that the offense has seemed to find the big play?
